French Open 2017: June 1st Men’s Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD

Court Philippe-Chatrier (11 a.m. start)

[3] Stan Wawrinka (SUI) vs Alexandr Dolgopolov (UKR) – Something tells me this might be complicated at some point, but I think Stan Wawrinka finds a way to winning 3 sets even if it takes him 4 or 5 sets to do it.
[15] Gaël Monfils (FRA) vs Thiago Monteiro (BRA)

Court Suzanne-Lenglen

[1] Andy Murray (GBR)  vs Martin Klizan (SVK) – I think Murray wins this one, but our friends at The Grandstand think otherwise.  Read here if interested.

Court 1

[7]  Marin Cilic (CRO) vs Konstantin Kravchuk (RUS)
[8] Kei Nishikori (JPN) vs Jérémy Chardy (FRA) – Nishikori needs to win this one, and I think he will in 3 or 4.

Court 2

[29] Juan Martin Del Potro (ARG) vs Nicolas Almagro (ESP) – A 50-50 match?

Court 3

[30]  David Ferrer (ESP) vs Feliciano Lopez (ESP) – Will Ferrer be leg weary?
[18]  Nick Kyrgios (AUS) vs Kevin Anderson (RSA) – Neither guy is a classic clay court grinder, but the surface may allow them time to set up for overpowering shots.

Court 6

[13] Tomas Berdych (CZE) vs Karen Khachanov (RUS)
Renzo Olivo (ARG) vs. Kyle Edmund (GBR)

Court 14

[21] John Isner (USA) vs. Paolo Lorenzi (ITA) – Isner’s ground game and return may benefit a bit from clay while his serve is still pretty lethal on dirt.
Hyeon Chung (KOR) vs Denis Istomin (UZB)

Court 16

[22]  Pablo Cuevas (URU) vs Nicolas Kicker (ARG) – La Guerra del Rio de la Plata?

Court 17

[28] Fabio Fognini (ITA) vs Andreas Seppi (ITA) – Seppi has the lower ceiling, and Fognini has the lower floor.  Flip a coin
