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…
