This is one of my favourite times of year, and not just because of the Footy.  ;)

Tips? Predictions? Big Calls?  :o

There are only 6 possible players that can win the mens draw and 3 of them are only outside chances

In order the 6 that I favor are Djokovic, Murray, Nadal then a big gap to Wawrinka, Nishikori and the roughy is Kyrgios.

Nick has the ability to beat any of the guns on his best form. He beat Wawrinka in Madrid and a point here and there he could have beaten Nishikori in the Quarter Finals in the Madrid Masters and pushed Nadal to the limit in the third round in the Rome Masters.

Djokovic and Murray in the last 2 masters events played the finals and split them 1-1. Djokovic in 3 sets in Madrid and Murray in straight sets in Rome.

Nishikori pushed Djokovic to 2 tight matches in those 2 events in the Semi Finals. The match in the Semi Final in Rome which went to a 3rd set tiebreak was a brilliant match, albeit won by Nole

Nadal has been in solid and looks in decent form but had lost to both Murray and Djokovic in the lead ups. He is drawn to face Nole in the semi finals and Nole on form will beat him.

Wawrinka's form has been patchy in the Masters events but will be confident after winning the title in the ATP World Tour 250 event in Geneva this week. His 2nd week of the French Open last year when he smashed Federer, Tsonga and then bullied Djokovic in the final was the best tennis he will ever play IMO. He needs to replicate it to be a chance to defend his title.

I am predicting a Djokovic v Murray final with Djokovic winning.

In the Womens singles you always have to favour Serena Williams but I would like to see Garbine Murgurza win the title.

No chase the ace! :(



In other news, Kygrios is still a dickhead. He's a gun at winning tiebreakers though.

I don't think yelling at the ball ball "TOWELL!!" warranted a violation.  He was still at mid court, so maybe there is a case for they might not hear him (pulling at straws here).

Also, as soon as Nick does anything its gets blown out of proportion.  I still don't think its worth a code violation.

An absolute epic first round game has just finished. Sucks that the fame had to be first round due to Dimitrov coming back but wow what a game by Troicki.

It goes both ways I reckon. He gets no benefit of the doubt because he's Nick Kygrios but its also his fault for acting like Nick Kygrios.

So Murray is in trouble in his 2nd round match against Mathias Bourgue.

Bourgue is from France and ranked 164th in the world but that is a false ranking based on the match.

His forehand is a right handed version of Rafa. Gets plenty of spin and depth on the ball and is controlling the points. If he can keep his composure Murray may find himself back on an early flight to the UK.

I dunno why, but for some reason I've always hated Murray. He seems to have an unlikeable face.

I wouldn't mind him losing. He however just got a break up in the 4th set and should win the set. Murray then would be $1.01 to win the 5th set.

Murray has come from behind in his first 2 matches to win in 5 sets against Stepanek and Bourgue.

At least there won't be a lot of running in his next match when he plays Ivo Karlovic. Then he could play another big server John Isner in the 4th round.
