US Open 2020: Men’s Singles Predictions for August 31st

Predicted Winners in BOLD

Note these are snap judgment gut picks.  I have not and will not bet on tennis.
Kevin Anderson VS (5) Alexander Zverev – An upset to start out? Why not?

(1) Novak Djokovic VS Damir Dzumhur

(12) Denis Shapovalov VS (WC) Sebastian Korda – A fun youth clash that likely goes to the more experienced player.

Steve Johnson VS (16) John Isner – I expect a long match. 

(4) Stefanos Tsitsipas VS Albert Ramos-Vinolas – Not an easy first-round match

Reilly Opelka VS (7) David Goffin – Two out of three and I might pick the other way.  This is a match that will draw out contrasts between the players.  Over time, I think Goffin figures out what he needs to do.

(32) Adrian Mannarino VS Lorenzo Sonego

Pedro Martinez VS  (28) Jan-Lennard Struff

(9) Diego Schwartzman VS Cameron Norrie

Dominik Koepfer VS (19) Taylor Fritz – A good match if you have a ticket

Kyle Edmund VS Alexander Bublik

Stefano Travaglia VS Jordan Thompson

Peter Gojowczyk VS (24) Hubert Hurkacz

Mohamed Safwat VS Gilles Simon – The veteran should reach the round of 64.

Marcos Giron VS Marc Polmans

Alejandro Davidovich Fokina VS Dennis Novak

Paolo Lorenzi VS (WC) Brandon Nakashima

Joao Sousa VS (WC) Michael Mmoh

Juan Ignacio Londero VS Evgeny Donskoy

Maxime Cressy VS Jozef Kovalik

Federico Gaio VS Ricardas Berankis

Pablo Andujar VS (27) Borna Coric – Andujar may not win, but he generally is a tough out so I will pick him.

(20) Pablo Carreno Busta VS Yasutaka Uchiyama

(WC) Ulises Blanch VS (13) Cristian Garin

(18) Dusan Lajovic VS Egor Gerasimov

(PR) Jack Sock VS Pablo Cuevas
