  1. Upsets galore in Barcelona. Seems like the central theme of the clay court season so far is no success for top players except Rafa. Don’t mind that. I’m liking the upsets. Keeps it interesting and we still got the king of clay making history too. Upsets that stood out from today in Barcelona were Sugita over PCB, Chung over Zverev, Khachanov over Goffin, and ARV over RBA not really a huge upset given ARV’s form and only slightly lower seeding. Man is ARV playing well. Never mind the theme has been Spanish lefties. That makes more sense. #vamosramos

  2. Friday QF –
    Thiem over Sugita in 2 (Sugita’s run should finally end but man is he balling)
    Rafa over Chung in 2 (Rafa should cruise past the youngster)
    Khachanov over Zeballos in 3 (Khachanov should win barring a huge letdown which I don’t expect from the motivated young gun)
    Murray over Ramos-Vinolas in 3 (I expect another good match between these two with Murray getting some revenge)
    Pouille over Klizan in 3 (almost picked Krazy Klizan but he’s still more likely to throw in a garbage performance)
    Bedene over Karlovic in 3 (Dr. Ivo is shaky on clay as it is and Bedene is red hot right now)
    Verdasco over Djere in 2 (Nando could drop a set here but he likely wins and does so pretty routinely)
    Lorenzi over Kuznetsov in 3 (Lorenzi grinds through another tough match on the slow stuff)

  3. Barcelona SF Picks:
    1) Rafa vs. Zeballos: Rafa will probably win his tenth Barcelona title here. With the court recently named after him and his current form plus a pretty nice draw to the final, it seems destined for him to get another clay court title here. He should clock Zeballos. I’d be surprised if a set was even close. Pick: Rafa in 2
    2) Murray vs. Thiem: Thiem is playing some really solid tennis here and has not dropped a set here. Meanwhile, Murray nearly suffered another defeat at the hands of Ramos-Vinolas with ARV failing to serve out the match and the world number one winning in a third set breaker. Murray has still not found his footing on the slow stuff, and I don’t know when or if he will, but I do know one thing. Thiem on clay can beat an in form Murray, so with Andy playing pretty poorly, the upset seems very likely. Pick: Thiem in 2

  4. Budapest SF Picks:
    1) Pouille vs. Lorenzi: Lorenzi is freaking awesome for being 34 and still grinding his way to the latter stages of tour level events. The fact that he’s peaking at this age and that he will probably crack top 32 if he wins this match is insane. Huge props to him for getting to this round, but Pouille seems determined to keep up his momentum from the Monte Carlo semifinal run after his great escape in round two here against Vesely where he saved two match points to win 7-6 in the third. The Frenchman likely has too many bigger shots and skills to lose this one. Pick: Pouille in 2
    2) Djere vs. Bedene: Bedene is red hot right now. The guy has won 15 straight matches with two straight challenger titles leading up to this event, followed by two qualifying wins and three main draw wins here. There are probably like three people on tour more confident than he is right now. This is bad news for Djere. Djere has had a pretty admirable run with impressive knockouts of Troicki and Verdasco to get here. The 21 year old is knocking on the door of the top 150 and can get to the top 100 sooner than expected if he translates this form to challenger titles and more solid runs at your level clay court events in the upcoming weeks. Still, it seems like the run for Djere will end here as Bedene is playing with boatloads of confidence that will help continue this hot streak with another final, this time a tour level final. Pick: Bedene in 2
