Monte Carlo 2017: April 20th Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD

COURT RAINIER III (11 a.m. start)

[1] Andy Murray (GBR) vs. [15] Albert Ramos-Vinolas (ESP) H2H – Andy Murray had some clay breakthroughs last year.  Can he break all the way through in 2017?

[3] Stan Wawrinka(SUI) vs. [16] Pablo Cuevas (URU) H2H – If one of the top 4 seeds is going to lose today, this is the match that could produce it.

[4] Rafael Nadal (ESP) vs. [14] Alexander Zverev (GER) H2H – In 18 months, I’ll probably take Zverev (even on clay).

[2] Novak Djokovic (SRB) vs. [13] Pablo Carreno Busta (ESP) H2H – Novak Djokovic got to hit plenty of shots in the first round.  He should be ready for a more routine win here.

COURT DES PRINCES

[5] Marin Cilic (CRO) vs. [9] Tomas Berdych (CZE) H2H – Cilic may be shaking off a slump, but until he lands some big wins I think he is still suspect.

[11] Lucas Pouille (FRA) vs. [Q] Adrian Mannarino (FRA) H2H – Clay is helping Pouille’s results.

[6] Dominic Thiem (AUT) vs. [10] David Goffin (BEL) H2H – A gut feeling here on what is likely the match of the day.

[Q] Jan-Lennard Struff (GER) vs. Diego Schwartzman (ARG)
