Shanghai Masters 2017: Quarterfinal Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD

[4] Marin Cilic (CRO) vs. Albert Ramos-Vinolas (ESP) –  Cilic again should win, but I have not been overly confident about most of his matches this week.

[1] Rafael Nadal (ESP) vs. [6] Grigor Dimitrov (BUL) – Rafa is quite close to precluding a Federer charge at #1 to end the year.  Dimitrov has played well versus Rafa in many of their encounters.  Still, Nadal has to be the pick.  Oddly, as much as Rafa’s clay season set him up for a #1 run this year, his combined 4300 points from the US Open, Australian Open, Miami, and Beijing have put him out in front.

[16] Juan Martin del Potro (ARG) vs Viktor Troicki (SRB) – The MASH unit match should go JMDP’s direction.

[2] Roger Federer (SUI) vs Richard Gasquet (FRA) – I could see Gasquet winning this match.  However, Roger has generally dominated their head-to-head clashes.
