French Open 2015: Nishikori vs. Tsonga Quarterfinal Prediction

[5] Kei Nishikori (JPN) vs [14] Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (FRA) Nishikori leads their head-to-head 4-1, but none of these meetings have taken place on clay.  Also, only one of their matches took place in the past 52 weeks.  Therefore, I think this match does not have an obvious favorite.  Nishikori has demonstrated great clay court form.   Tsonga has…

French Open 2015: May 31st Men’s Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD This is a great slate of matches, but I could see getting 3 or even all 4 of these matches wrong [4] Tomas Berdych (CZE) vs [14] Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (FRA) – My gut says Tsonga wins this match, but Berdych beat Tsonga in a fairly straight forward manner in Madrid.  Berdych has…

French Open 2015: May 29th Men’s Singles Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD Both Fed and Cuevas are Drawing Confidence from Istanbul Damir Dzumhur (BIH) vs. Roger Federer (SUI) [2] – This match is pitting the most known player vs. one of the most unknown players remaining in the draw.  A pro-level opponent swinging freely with nothing to lose can be dangerous, but Federer has been…

French Open 2015: May 27th Men’s Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD Fed and Cuevas are in action in Paris [2] Roger Federer (SUI) vs. Marcel Granollers (ESP) – I don’t think this is the easiest match for Federer. As enticing as Roger’s second week draw is, but matches through the round of 16 are not necessarily ideal.  Fed is still obviously favored…

French Open 2015: May 24th Men’s Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD This is quite a slate of matches for Day 1 [2] Roger Federer (SUI) vs Alejandro Falla (COL) – Federer has a pretty ideal draw in Paris.  A win on Sunday means Roger would only have to win 6 matches over the traditional 2 weeks of the event to take the title.  Falla…

Masters Rome 2015: May 13th ATP Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD [3] Andy Murray (GBR) vs Jeremy Chardy (FRA) H2H – Chardy’s forehand and serve could cause a few problems, but if Murray struggles he will find a way to Chardy’s backhand and grind out a win.  I doubt Murray struggles. [4] Rafael Nadal (ESP) vs [Q] Marsel Ilhan (TUR) H2H – Rafa’s opponent…

Masters Madrid 2015: May 7th ATP Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD I am a bit ill so these are coming later than usual. Manolo Santana (11 a.m. start) [3] Rafael Nadal (ESP) vs Simone Bolelli (ITA) H2H – I like Rafa to advance. [7] David Ferrer (ESP) vs Fernando Verdasco (ESP) H2H – This match should be pretty awesome, but in the end I…

Masters Madrid 2015: May 6th ATP Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD (This is an incredible slate of matches) [3] Rafael Nadal (ESP) vs Steve Johnson (USA) H2H – Johnson is a great story, but not every story has a happy ending. [1] Roger Federer (SUI) vs Nick Kyrgios (AUS) – I could see this going either way as Roger may be pacing himself for Paris….

Masters Madrid 2015: May 5th ATP Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD Fernando Verdasco (ESP) vs Guillermo Garcia-Lopez (ESP) H2H – GGL picked up a title recently.  He has far less firepower than Hot Sauce, but I think GGL is steady enough to navigate this match. Jack Sock (USA) vs [WC] Pablo Andujar (ESP) H2H – A hard call as Sock did win Houston, but I…
