French Open 2016: May 28th Men’s Predictions


Predicted Winners in BOLD



Ernests Gulbis (LAT) vs. Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (FRA) [6] – I thought Gulbis was more or less on the way out of tennis, but a few wins may mean he is coming back toward the top 30.  I still think Tsonga wins as he seems poised for another deepish run at Roland Garros.

Novak Djokovic (SRB) [1] vs. Aljaz Bedene (GBR) – Novak should win, but I remember Federer in 2009 when Rafa was unexpectedly out of the draw and struggled vs. Tommy Haas.  I don’t think Bedene is Tommy Haas though.

Alexander Zverev (GER) vs. Dominic Thiem (AUT) [13] – The future vs the future?  I’ll take Thiem for now.

David Goffin (BEL) [12] vs. Nicolas Almagro (ESP) – Goffin should win, but Almagro can get things rolling especially on clay.

David Ferrer (ESP) [11] vs. Feliciano Lopez (ESP) [21] – On any surface but clay, I’d probably slightly favor Lopez at this stage in each man’s career.

Pablo Cuevas (URU) [25] vs. Tomas Berdych (CZE) [7] – Cuevas for a mild upset

Borna Coric (CRO) vs. Roberto Bautista Agut (ESP) [14] – I think Bautista Agut will victimize Coric’s forehand enough times to win.
