Masters Miami 2017: March 30th ATP Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD [4] Roger Federer (SUI) vs. [10] Tomas Berdych (CZE) H2H – Berdych is capable of winning this match, but history tells us he is the decided underdog.  Roger Federer is likely to play a light clay court schedule so he could be motivated to grab as many computer points as possible in…

Indian Wells 2017: March 17th ATP Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD [9] Roger Federer (SUI) vs. [15] Nick Kyrgios (AUS) H2H – If Kyrgios serves like he did in his 2 recent wins vs. Novak Djokovic, this pick will look foolish.  I think Federer is riding high mentally after picking up his 2nd win of 2017 vs. Rafael Nadal.  Also, playing during the…

Shanghai 2016: October 12th ATP Predictions

Finally Grigor beats Rafa! Makes me really happy !

Japan Open 2016: Semifinal Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD Tokyo’s draw seemed softer than Beijing’s at the outset, but I am not sure that the quality of the final four at each ATP 500 level event is terribly different. (5) David Goffin VS (4) Marin Cilic – Cilic played well at Queen’s Club, Wimbledon, the Rio games, and Cincinnati.  His mystifyingly poor US Open…

US Open 2016: September 3rd Men’s Predictions

Arthur Ashe Stadium (11 a.m. start) Paolo Lorenzi (ITA) vs. Andy Murray (GBR) [2] – I like Murray in this match for a lot of reasons. Nick Kyrgios (AUS)[14] vs. Illya Marchenko (UKR) – Can the conqueror of Atlanta with nuclear power harness his gifts to win this match?  I am leaning toward yes, but Kyrgios…

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. That all spells trouble for…

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%…

Atlanta 2016: Nick Kyrgios vs. John Isner Championship Prediction

Nick Kyrgios vs. John Isner This match is interesting on several levels.  Isner skipped the olympic games to in part seek his 4th Atlanta title.  Nick Kyrgios’ troubles with Tennis Australia left him out of the 2016 olympic games.  Each man has a massive service game.  Isner’s consistency has never been questioned, but his game…
