Masters 1000 – Cincinnati 2017: August 15th ATP Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD

Center Court (11 a.m. start)

[10] Tomas Berdych (CZE) vs. Juan Martin del Potro (ARG) H2H – This is one hell of a match.  I think the Big Czech wins, but no one would be shocked if JMDP pulled the upset.

[13] Jack Sock (USA) vs. Yuichi Sugita (JPN) H2H – Sock is seeded 13th?  He is ranked 16th, but we know this draw has taken a few hits.

[14] John Isner (USA) vs. [WC] Tommy Paul (USA) H2H – Bombs away

Grandstand

Steve Johnson (USA) vs. David Ferrer (ESP) H2H – I am torn on this, but I think Ferrer finds a way in 3 sets.

[3] Dominic Thiem (AUT) vs. Fabio Fognini (ITA) H2H – This could be electric.  I’d sit down and watch this if I had a ticket.

Stadium 3

[9] David Goffin (BEL) vs. Nick Kyrgios (AUS) H2H – Each player has health issues.  This is hard to call, but it should be a good match if they are both healthy.

[12] Roberto Bautista Agut (ESP) vs. [WC] Jared Donaldson (USA) H2H

[8] Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (FRA) vs. Ivo Karlovic (CRO) H2H J-WT 7-6, 7-6

Court 10

Kevin Anderson (RSA) vs. [Q] Alexandr Dolgopolov (UKR) H2H – Anderson should win based upon tactical clarity alone.

[11] Pablo Carreno Busta (ESP) vs. Paolo Lorenzi (ITA) H2H

Court 4

Albert Ramos-Viñolas (ESP) vs. [Q] Mikhail Youzhny (RUS) – Good for the veteran Youzhny to be out there working through qualifying rounds, but I think his journey ends vs. AR-V.

Robin Haase (NED) vs. Adrian Mannarino (FRA) H2H – They both had strong runs in Montreal.  This should be fun.

Court 8

Karen Khachanov (RUS) vs. Diego Schwartzman (ARG) H2H

Borna Coric (CRO) vs. Nikoloz Basilashvili (GEO) H2H – I am hesitant with this pick given how badly Nadal thrashed Coric in Montreal last week.
