US Open 2017: September 6th Men’s Quarterfinal Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD

ARTHUR ASHE STADIUM (Noon start)

[1] Rafael Nadal (ESP) vs Andrey Rublev (RUS) – Nadal is likely to beat Rublev who should be proud and thrilled with his quarterfinal finish.

 

[3] Roger Federer (SUI) vs [24] Juan Martin del Potro (ARG)  – I expect a great match.  I think Delpo’s more slice based backhand will be good for Federer.  Still, Delpo’s forehand, his serve, and his will power all give him a great chance.  Federer has looked much better the previous two rounds, but how much mentally is left for him in 2017 after winning Wimbledon and the Australian Open?  I think JMDP rides the wave of his comeback win and hits enough good backhands to advance in 4 or 5 sets.
