Wimbledon 2016: Day 6 Gentlemen’s Singles Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD

[2] Andy Murray (GBR) v John Millman (AUS) – Murray should win this match.

[6] Milos Raonic (CAN) v [27] Jack Sock (USA) – I like Milos to win this match, but I think Sock has played quite well.

[1] Novak Djokovic (SRB) v [28] Sam Querrey (USA) To finish 6-7(6), 1-6, 0-0 – I think Novak comes back and wins this match.  It would be interesting to hear what Boris Becker’s coaching insights are prior to day 2.

[15] Nick Kyrgios (AUS) v [22] Feliciano Lopez (ESP) – Both men overcame stiff challenges and play on back-to-back days so long as the weather holds.  I think Nick can hold serve often enough to put pressure on Lopez.

[12] Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (FRA) v [18] John Isner (USA) – Based on Isner’s head-to-head advantage, I think he manages to advance despite the fact that across the board Tsonga has more variety.

[5] Kei Nishikori (JPN)  v Andrey Kuznetsov (RUS) – I think Kei is vulnerable.

[11] David Goffin (BEL) v Denis Istomin (UZB) – Goffin needs to take care of his service games.

[9] Marin Cilic (CRO) v [Q] Lukas Lacko (SVK)  To finish 6-3, 6-3, 0-1 – Sticking with my original pick.

[32] Lucas Pouille (FRA) v [PR] Juan Martin Del Potro (ARG) – Is the Argentine back?  Probably not all the way back, but he is closer to being back than I thought possible.

Steve Johnson (USA) vs Grigor Dimitrov (BUL)  To finish 4-3 – My original pick

[7] Richard Gasquet (FRA) vs Albert Ramos-Vinolas (ESP) -Gasquet is quietly advancing.

[24] Alexander Zverev (GER) v Mikhail Youzhny (RUS)  To finish 6-4, 3-6 , 6-0, 4-6, 2-1 – My original pick

Pierre-Hugues Herbert (FRA) v Nicolas Mahut (FRA) To finish 6-7(5), 4-6, 2-1 – Original pick

[14] Roberto Bautista Agut (ESP) v [19] Bernard Tomic (AUS) – The surface favors Tomic, but I think Bautista Agut is a fighter.  That makes a difference.
