US Open 2016: August 30th Men’s Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD Fernando Verdasco (ESP)¬†vs.¬†Stan Wawrinka (SUI) [3] – This is a terrible first round draw for both players. ¬†I think Stan wins, but this could easily go the other way. Lukas Rosol (CZE)¬†vs.¬†Andy Murray (GBR) [2] – Does everyone hate Lukas? ¬†Murray seems to. Janko Tipsarevic (SRB)¬†vs.¬†Sam Querrey (USA) [29] – Both…

Cincinnati 2016: ATP Quarterfinal Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD Steve Johnson¬†VS¬†Grigor Dimitrov – I am torn on this match. ¬†Johnson won a bronze medal in doubles and pulled a huge upset over Jo-Wilfried Tsonga to secure his spot as the top ranked US male in singles. ¬†He is basking in good vibes. Grigor Dimitrov is playing his best tennis since…

Cincinnati 2016: August 18th ATP Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD Grigor Dimitrov¬†VS¬†(2)¬†Stan Wawrinka – Grigor appears to be playing much better than some of his earlier 2016 form. ¬†Still, I think Stan wins the battle of one-handed backhands by serving bigger than Grigor and pushing him backward during rallies. Borna Coric¬†VS¬†(3)¬†Rafael Nadal – Coric won a gut-check match last evening after…

Rio Olympic Tennis: August 6 Men’s Singles Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD Albert Ramos-Vinolas¬†VS¬†(4)¬†Kei Nishikori – Kei should win, but his deep run in Canada may make an adjustment to Rio a bit slower than some other players’ process of adaptation. Malek Jaziri¬†VS¬†(5)¬†Jo-Wilfried Tsonga –¬†I like Tsonga so long as he is feeling healthy. (6)¬†Gael Monfils¬†VS¬†Vasek Pospisil – Pospisil has a canon serve…

Masters Canada 2016: July 26th ATP Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD Alexander Zverev (GER) vs. Yen-Hsun Lu (TPE) H2H¬†– I often am wrong when I pick against Lu in early rounds. [10] Ga√ęl Monfils (FRA) vs. Joao Sousa (POR) H2H¬†–¬†Gael faces a tough opponent, but I like Gael’s chances. [5] Tomas Berdych (CZE) vs. Borna Coric (CRO) H2H¬†– Berdych will likely have…

Masters Canada 2016: July 25th ATP Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD Borna Coric (CRO) vs. Ivan Dodig (CRO) H2H¬†– This could be a great match. ¬†I think Coric wins, but Dodig should not be underestimated. Grigor Dimitrov (BUL) vs. Yuichi Sugita (JPN) H2H¬†–¬†Grigor has to eventually win a match in which he is the favorite right? [9] John Isner (USA) vs. Dudi…

Washington, DC 2016: July 21st ATP Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD (Q)¬†Ryan Harrison¬†VS¬†(5)¬†Steve Johnson – This is a big match for both men. ¬†Johnson won his first title right and had a decent Wimbledon. ¬†He entered Newport as the #1 seed and underperformed. ¬†A strong showing in DC would make Newport a blip on Johnson’s 2016 radar. ¬†Harrison battled through the qualifying…

Washington, DC 2016: July 20th ATP Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD Alexander Zverev¬†VS¬†Taylor Fritz – Future Shock? Zverev seems a bit further along, but Fritz might be boosted by the DC fans. Yen-Hsun Lu¬†VS¬†(2)¬†Gael Monfils – Monfils holds a 2-0 head-to-head lead, but they have not met since January 2013. ¬†I think Lu pulls the upset if solely because Monfils has been…
