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.

Wimbledon 2016: Gentlemen’s Singles Quarterfinal Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD Roger Federer (SUI) [3] v Marin Cilic (CRO) [9] – If Cilic plays like he did in their 2014 US Open semifinal match, Federer will have to serve bigger and keep his slice low to have a chance.  If Cilic plays well but not great, Federer will need to serve well enough to prevent…

Men’s Sweet 16: Rare Waters of a Wide Open Major KEY – Chances for winning the title are not predicated on which group one is in with two exceptions.  The puncher’s chance grouping does seem to have a chance to win 4 more matches, but those chances seem low.  The final grouping just doesn’t quite…
