Tennis Power Ranking 2016: Murray’s Italian Offensive

The Sixth Tennis Power Ranking for 2016 Novak Djokovic – Novak would have stayed at #1 had he lost his first match in Rome.

One more time? Predicted Winners in BOLD [2] Andy Murray (GBR) vs. [LL] Lucas Pouille (FRA) H2H – Pouille may be the luckiest of lucky losers.  He entered Rome with a little over 900 ranking points.  He will add at least 360 points to his ranking total despite not making it through the qualifying rounds in Rome….

Claymagedon 2016: Another Quarterfinal (?) Rafa-Nole Clash on Dirt

Rafael Nadal won Monte Carlo and Barcelona.  He played well enough to lose in 2 close sets to Andy Murray in the semifinal round of Madrid.  Rafa beat Murray at Monte Carlo in 3 sets so those two are playing close to even tennis on clay as Roland Garros approaches. Rafa is the best clay…

Masters Rome 2016: May 10th ATP Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD [6] Kei Nishikori (JPN) vs. Viktor Troicki (SRB) H2H – Kei has played well on clay as of late so based on his history he may lose here.  I, however, think he will be pretty steady in Rome. [9] David Ferrer (ESP) vs. [Q] Filippo Volandri (ITA) H2H – Ferrer doesn’t lose matches…
