US Open 2019: Can Medvedev Win?

Feeling like 2017 again? or 2010? or 2013? First, Daniil Medvedev has done something many tennis fans have been waiting on from younger players.  He has reached 4-consecutive finals.  He picked up 300 ranking points in Washington, DC, 600 in Montreal, 1000 in Cincinnati, and is going to take home either 1200 or 2000 from…

US Open 2019: September 1st Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD ARTHUR ASHE STADIUM  (Noon start) [3] Roger Federer (SUI) vs [15] David Goffin (BEL) – This could be a long match.  I think the 3 of 5 set format helps Federer.  Goffin played well in Cincinnati and Federer started slowly in his first two matches at the US Open.  If Federer cannot push Goffin backward, an…

US Open 2019: August 27th Women’s Singles Predictions

Match of the Day: [24] Garbiñe Muguruza (ESP) vs Alison Riske (USA) Muguruza is one of the most vexing players to predict. She holds two major titles and was also a major runner-up.  When she plays well, she looks like a star who could be setting the standard on the WTA Tour, but her style of play…

US Open 2019: Men’s Singles Predictions for August 27th

Men’s Match of the Day: [8] Stefanos Tsitsipas (GRE) vs Andrey Rublev (RUS) Tsitsipas beat Federer in a major and beat Rafa on clay this year.  He battled Wawrinka in a great 5 set Roland Garros round of 16 loss.  However, the second half of his season has been a bit understated.  Has fatigue set in?  Are…

US Open 2019: Key Day 1 Match Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD Women’s Match of the Day – Serena Williams vs. Maria Sharapova Serena has won the US Open 6-times.  Maria Sharapova won the US Open in 2006.  Serena has dominated their head-to-head matches 19-3, but any match pitting two former champions and former #1s in the first round has to be the match…

US Open 2017: Anderson vs. Carreno Busta Semifinal Prediction

28 Kevin Anderson vs. 12 Pablo Carreño Busta This match is not one that was expected, but also features two seeded players.  Pablo Carreno Busta being the 12th seed is the numeric favorite, but based upon surface speed one can easily agure that Kevin Anderson is the favorite in this match.  My initial thoughts about…

US Open 2017: Vandeweghe vs Keys Semifinal Prediction

20 CoCo Vandeweghe vs. 15 Madison Keys These two players have pretty similar game plans.  They like to dictate play and use paralyzing power to overwhelm an opponent.  Each player has reached the semifinal round of a major in the past.  Each player is poised to lead the next generation of US power brokers on…
