Newport, Umag, & Bastad 2017: Semifinal Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD

Newport

Peter Gojowczyk (GER) vs. [Q] Matthew Ebden (AUS) H2H – I think Ebden makes his qualifying run into a run to the final.

[1] John Isner (USA) vs. Bjorn Fratangelo (USA) H2H – Isner should win this match and this event.  He does need to put some pressure on Frantangelo’s serve to simplify his path to the final.

Umag

[WC] Ivan Dodig (CRO) vs. [LL] Andrey Rublev (RUS) H2H – Dodig has some momentum from upsetting the #1 seed.

[4] Paolo Lorenzi (ITA) vs. Alessandro Giannessi (ITA) H2H – Grazie tante

Bastad

Alexandr Dolgopolov (UKR) vs. Andrey Kuznetsov (RUS) H2H – I think the talented young Russian beats the unpredictable Ukranian.

[6] Fernando Verdasco (ESP) vs. [8] David Ferrer (ESP) H2H – I think at this stage of each man’s career that Hot Sauce can overpower and outhit Ferrer if he keeps his error tally low.
