January 8th ATP Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD

Qatar

[2] Rafael Nadal (ESP) vs. Illya Marchenko (UKR) H2H – I like Rafa in this match as he is likely looking to see where he stands versus Nole.
[1] Novak Djokovic (SRB) vs. [3] Tomas Berdych (CZE) H2H – Berdych could maybe take a set, but Nole will be too much even if it goes 3.

Brisbane

[4] Milos Raonic (CAN) vs. Lucas Pouille (FRA) H2H – Milos is not a lock here, but his serve is reason enough to make him the favorite.

[2] Kei Nishikori (JPN) vs. [7] Bernard Tomic (AUS)  H2H Aussie power in an upset?

[1] Roger Federer (SUI) vs. Grigor Dimitrov (BUL) H2H – I like Federer to win, but I would not be shocked if he doesn’t.  I think Roger will be very judicious with his energy throughout 2016.

[3] Marin Cilic (CRO) vs. [8] Dominic Thiem (AUT) – Thiem seems to be on the cusp of a bigger year.

Chennai

[1] Stan Wawrinka (SUI) vs. [5] Guillermo Garcia-Lopez (ESP) H2H – GGL is no pushover, but Stan has a lot of good vibes at this event.

Aljaz Bedene (GBR) vs. [WC] Ramkumar Ramanathan (IND) H2H – Picking a player from the UK?  My picking against them has not worked out well recently.

[4] Roberto Bautista Agut (ESP) vs. [8] Borna Coric (CRO) H2H – A numeric upset, but this is as close to a 50-50 match as I can find.

[3] Benoit Paire (FRA) vs. [Q] Thomas Fabbiano (ITA) H2H – Fabbiano has had a great event, but it likely ends here.
