Vienna 2017: October 23rd Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD Gilles Simon (FRA) vs. [WC] Ernests Gulbis (LAT) – Simon is the more steady of the two, but both can kind of lull an opponent into an odd mental state.  This should be interesting if nothing else.

US Open 2016: September 1st Men’s Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD [2] Andy Murray (GBR) vs Marcel Granollers (ESP) – Granollers is a tough competitor who could trouble murray under certain circumstances.  Murray seems to be in some of the best form of his career, and the Scot has tended to play quite well in New York.

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.

Rio Olympic Tennis: August 6 Men’s Singles Predictions
