US Open 2017: Anderson vs. Carreno Busta Semifinal Prediction

28 Kevin Anderson vs. 12 Pablo Carre√Īo Busta This match is not one that was expected, but also features two seeded players. ¬†Pablo Carreno Busta being the 12th seed is the numeric favorite, but based upon surface speed one can easily agure that Kevin Anderson is the favorite in this match. ¬†My initial thoughts about…

US Open 2017: September 5th Men’s Quarterfinal Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD Be Honest, Who Had One of These 4 in the Final? ARTHUR ASHE STADIUM¬†(Noon start) [12]¬†Pablo Carreno Busta¬†(ESP) vs¬†[29]¬†Diego Schwartzman¬†(ARG) ¬†– An all-Argentine and an all-Spanish final is possible. ¬†I have doubted Schwartzman at every turn so in a kiss of death, I am picking him to win this match.

US Open 2016: September 2nd Men’s Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD [1] Novak Djokovic (SRB)¬† vs. Mikhail Youzhny (RUS) – Youzhny is a good opponent for Novak as I don’t think he can overpower an injured Novak. ¬†Also, Youzhny’s great variety is neutralized a bit by Novak’s speed and anticipation. [4] Rafael Nadal (ESP) vs. Andrey Kuznetsov (RUS)¬†–¬†Rafa seems closer to his…

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…

Cincinnati 2016: August 15th ATP Predictions

Again this appears to be a partial list given that court 9 is missing from the schedule Predicted Winners in BOLD (PR) Julien Benneteau VS (10) David Ferrer – I think Ferrer is the favorite, but I wonder if Ferrer is running out of steam. Pablo Cuevas VS Sam Querrey – I am not 100%…

Masters Canada 2016: Quarterfinal Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD [2] Stan Wawrinka (SUI) vs.¬† Kevin Anderson (RSA)¬†H2H¬†– This could be a really good match. ¬†I think Stan will win because his game is more well rounded. ¬†Still, Anderson might avenge last year’s US Open loss to Stan. ¬† [3] Kei Nishikori (JPN) vs. Grigor Dimitrov (BUL) H2H¬†– Grigor has shown…

Masters Canada 2016: July 28th ATP Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD [3] Kei Nishikori (JPN) vs. Rajeev Ram (USA) H2H¬†– Ram could win, but he is certainly not the favorite. [2] Stan Wawrinka (SUI) vs. [16] Jack Sock (USA) H2H¬†– Stan should win, but typically his Masters 1000 results are pretty scattered so a Sock win should not be discounted. [4] Milos…

Masters Canada 2016: July 27th ATP Predictions

Djokovic is Holding Court Again Predicted Winners in BOLD [3] Kei Nishikori (JPN) vs. [Q] Dennis Novikov (USA) H2H¬†– Kei should win if he is healthy. [1] Novak Djokovic (SRB) vs. Gilles Muller (LUX) H2H¬†– Some questions are floating around regarding Novak’s right shoulder and/or elbow. ¬†If he is hampered when serving, this match could…
