Madrid 2016: May 3rd ATP Predictions


Predicted Winners in BOLD

[5] Rafael Nadal (ESP) vs. Andrey Kuznetsov (RUS) H2H  – This match could have some fun points and games, but Rafa should win in straight sets.

[2] Andy Murray (GBR) vs. [Q] Radek Stepanek (CZE) – Mercifully, the Worm will likely be gone.

[15] Roberto Bautista Agut (ESP) vs. [Q] Santiago Giraldo (COL) H2H – RBA is a tough out so he should be doubly tough in his home country.

[14] Dominic Thiem (AUT) vs. [PR] Juan Martin del Potro (ARG) H2H – Not an ideal match for JMDP to get his teeth back into red clay.

[11] Milos Raonic (CAN) vs. Alexandr Dolgopolov (UKR) H2H – Milos should win, but the Dolg could play above his recent form.

[10] Richard Gasquet (FRA) vs. [WC] Fernando Verdasco (ESP) – I’d love to watch this match from the stands.  Gasquet is less likely to play poorly, but this is a 50-50 match.

[13] Gael Monfils (FRA) vs. Kevin Anderson (RSA) H2H – After Monte Carlo, I think Gael is a very solid favorite on clay vs. Anderson.

Grigor Dimitrov (BUL) vs. [WC] Pablo Carreno Busta (ESP) H2H – Dimitrov should win, but it is hard to know where his head space will be for this match.

Borna Coric (CRO) vs. [WC] Nicolas Almagro (ESP) H2H – This should be fun, but I like Almagro to advance.

Fabio Fognini (ITA) vs. Bernard Tomic (AUS) H2H – Uhhhh …

Albert Ramos-Vinolas (ESP) vs. Jérémy Chardy (FRA) H2H – Homecourt edge?

Nick Kyrgios (AUS) vs. Guido Pella (ARG) H2H

Philipp Kohlschreiber (GER) vs. Pablo Cuevas (URU) H2H 


Jack Sock (USA) vs. Benoit Paire (FRA) H2H – A 50-50 match, but Sock seems due for a win for some reason.

Ivo Karlovic (CRO) vs. [Q] Denis Kudla (USA) H2H – If every point started off of a feed, I think Kudla wins easily, but can Kudla break Ivo given that the big man will be serving during 1/2 of the games played?
