US Open 2013: Day 7 Men’s Predictions

Predicted Winners in Bold Third Round Novak Djokovic (1) vs. Joao Sousa – Nole should roll. Tim Smyczek vs. Marcel Granollers – And then there were none … US men are eliminated from the singles draw.  The USTA should be a touch worried about the state of the men’s game.

US Open 2013: Day 5 Predictions

Tennis Power Ranking 2013: Cincinnati to NY

Power Ranking 2013 #11 Again a lot of movement as one would expect following a 1000 Series Event 1.  Rafael Nadal – Rafa already has 5 Masters 1000 titles in 2013!  He is putting a strangle hold on the race to finish #1 in 2013.  He continued dominating form and won entertaining to memorable matches against…

Tennis Masters Cincinnati Predictions: August 15, 2013

Predicted Winners in BOLD Third Round Milos Raonic (12) vs. John Isner – This should be a match full of long rallies and multiple service breaks.  This is a 50-50 match that will come down to tiebreaks and maybe one or two service breaks.  I’ll take Isner as Raonic has more or less backed up last week’s result….

Cincinnati Masters Predictions: August 13

Predicted Winners in BOLD Second Round Roger Federer (5) vs. Philipp Kohlschreiber – This match is a hard one to predict.  If Roger plays at the level he did in Gstaad, I think Kohlschreiber pulls the upset.  I think Roger will play better than he has in his past 3 events and pull out a tight win. Grigor…

Tennis Power Ranking 2013: Wimbledon and Murray’s Ascent

Power Ranking 2013 #8 Wimbledon Shakes up the Power Rankings  #1 vs. #2 and Murray vs. History/Expectations 1.  Andy Murray – Murray broke a 77 year slump for men from the UK at All England.  Over the past 52 weeks, Murray has won 2 slams, produced 1 slam runner-up finish and won a gold medal….

Wimbledon 2013: Gentlemen’s Sweet 16 Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD Gentlemen’s Singles Round of 16 Novak Djokovic (SRB) [1] v Tommy Haas (GER) [13] – After Novak’s semifinal loss in Roland Garros, I thought he would be hard to stop at Wimbledon.  Nothing has changed my perspective on that.  Oddly, he does have a tough road to the title as Haas and Berdych have both…
