  1. Monday –
    Queen’s Club:
    Tsonga over Mannarino in 2
    Harrison over Dimitrov in 3
    Kyrgios over Young in 2
    Edmund over Shapovalov in 2
    Berdych over Darcis in 2
    Halle:
    Kohlschreiber over Sousa in 2
    Pospisil over Brown in 3
    Gasquet over Monfils in 3
    Thiem over Marterer in 2
    Ramos-Vinolas over Rublev in 3

  2. My Monday’s Picks

    Aegon Championships – London, Great Britain @Queen’s Club

    Tsonga over Mannarino in 2. Tsonga can SING(win) and go all the way to the bank! After all MANnarino is a very small MAN and cannot SING(play tennis or serve and volley like Tsonga)!
    Harrison over Dimitrov in 3-Looks like DIMitrov’ light is DIMming! Dim is not in form and Harrison who is playing well on all surfaces can win in 3 or push the over!
    Kyrgios over Young in 2-OVER wins-The lefty Young has good serve & can fight and Kyrgios can be flakey! His cross-court shots are dangerous! Kyrgios mind has “GIA” or GONE (in Hindi) somewhere!
    Edmund over Shapovalov in 2-can go over. SHAPO is in SHAPE on grass! Proly feeds on grass! Lol
    Berdych over Darcis in 2-should go over here as the wings of the Bird has been clipped on clay. The bird is not in good form and can get upset by darcis! Watchout you big Czech Birdy!

    Gerry Weber Open – Halle, Germany

    Kohlschreiber over Sousa in 2. Kohl should proly dump a lot of COAL over sousa and run away with the victory wth help of the partisan German crowd!
    Pospisil over Brown in 3-over should win here.
    Gasquet over Monfils in 3–over should win here whether you (are with) MOAN with pleasure (monfils) or GAS with incontinence (gasquet)!
    Thiem over Marterer in 2-Straight set win is the THEME here for THIEM!
    Ramos-Vinolas over Rublev in 3-Ramos needs to pray to Lord Rama to squeeze a win here! Else RUBLEV will mow down Ramos to RUBBLES!LOL

      • James don’t you have any sense of humor which all human beings have? Are you an animal(which don’t have any sense of humor)? LOL

        Researching and Analysis Tennis matches day in and day out for endless hours is tough, boring and stressful. Some humor relieves the stress on the brain and makes this tough business fun and enjoyable again! You will get it if you are not a animal and not criticize others!LOL

      • James, below (I quote few lines from our great forum member Mira Andi from the Non-Tennis Forum) is a perfect answer to your criticism and seeing ONLY the negative in people…

        From Mira Andi…if we’re eager to find a NEGATIVE in people..then we only can see that…but if we want to look at the POSITIVE things in people,then all we can see is the beauty and good things about them…Respect,tolerance are very very important…if we have that,then we can live happily no matter what our differences are….

        I am deeply motivated and touched by Mira Andi’s many posts about life,peace,happiness,love….etc in this forum!!!

        To write deeply analytic Tennis reports (novels,books etc.) especially in a comedic fashion( I do some stand up comedy for schools,colleges, local military camps etc. for FREE for fund raising and been appreciated by everybody! You are the 1st negative person I have come across in my life! ) needs high level of intelligence,knowledge and understanding etc…cannot be done by people with learning disability! Probably you have some mental disability and need to see a mental doctor quickly!

        Hope you will change permanently to become positive and make people around you happy! BOL for that James!

  3. Roger,

    Very impressive that Anna Kalinskaya beat Carina Witthoeft in Mallorca qualifying! Just when I thought Carina might be getting on a roll…there’s 18 yr. old, Anna Kalinskaya making a move…maybe. We’ll see where she fits in the main draw. But I do like a few of the qualifiers in both WTA draws this week. Not necessarily for winning big this time but ones to follow. 🙂

    • Rat, even I was surprised by her win over Carina who is one of the most improved players in WTA. Anna is a good upcoming talent. She can upset many higher ranked players.

      Which of the qualifiers do you like?

      I like Ons Jabeur. Bet on her. She upset the fav Wickmayer!

      I am also surprised by the good performance and wins of Haddad maia and VC Royg. They are basically good clay courters but have been doing well on grass so far!

      Did you bet on any WTA matches today!

      Won on Pliskova, Anastasia, Flipkens and Strycova.

  4. What reason did Kyrgios give for retiring THIS time? He must hold the record in recent years for pulling out of matches. Reminds me a bit of Djokovic when he was younger – prior to being mocked by Andy Roddick at the USO: He cleaned up his act after that and went on a tear. Still prone to exaggerating minor injury problems though.

      • Oh that looks nasty, poor Curious. Uncle T had penciled him as a contender at Wimby. I do hope it is not as serious as it looks….

        • I doubt that Kyrgios will fulfill the promise everybody says he has. He seems to be injury prone like Raonic with the casual attitude of Tomic.

          • AP is reporting Curious says he will be fit for Wimby, good luck to him. I have a feeling he will be in Rafa’s quarter at Wimby……

            • All that we know is that Fed will get an easy draw. Muzz too, probably. The rest will be thrown to the wolves!

      • Having seen that video I feel like a complete S*** of course. Amazed he hasn’t torn the ligaments in both knees.

        I concur with Mary’s assessment. He is a big, heavy man and his lackadaisical approach to tennis doesn’t bode well for longevity.

    • ed,

      I posted on another topic thread that Kyrgios retired with a hip injury. I was watching that match and they were in a first set TB. After Young won the TB and the set, Kyrgios withdrew. The tennis channel commies said that earlier in the match he slipped and seemed to hurt his hip.

      It’s really as though he has something or other going on with him. I am not sure what this means for him for Wimby.

        • Nny…I always worried sick everytime Rafa play on grass…especially in the 1st week…i think grass is the most dangerous court of all…very glad that they’re only made very few tournament on grass…

          • MA,

            I hear you! I am quietly hoping that all will go well with Rafa at Wimbledon. You know that I am a worrier! We know how slick the grass is in the first week. Even Rafa has been cautious in his comments about seeing how his knees hold up with having to bend low to hit the ball on grass. There is really no way to know how he will do.

            We just need to hope for the best. Rafa is healthy now and I know we all want it to stay that way!

            You echoed exactly what I have been thinking to myself!
            😍

  5. MA,

    Thanks for those special words! You brighten my day with them!

    Let’s hope for hot weather to make it easier for Rafa! We just have to hope all goes well and Rafa will be able to get through that first week!
    🤗

    • Nny!…YOU’RE MOST WELCOME MILADY!!!

      Oh!…Yeah…let’s hope together Nny!…also Rafa will not get a big server in his section..especially Nick..but to be honest..everybody looks dangerous to Rafa at Wimby!..

  6. picks for tomorrow:

    Bautista augt over berlocq in straights
    Mischa Zverev over Lacko in straights
    Verdasco to win a set against Nishikori
    Haas to beat in Tomic, most likely in straights
    Haase over Ferrer
    Khachanov over Simon
    A Zverev over Lorenzi in straights
    Paire over Mayer
    Karlovic over Youzhny, most likely in straights
    Pouille over Struff
    Federer over Lu in straights

    Raonic over Kokkinakis in straights
    Benneteau over Ward in straights
    Johnson over Kozlov
    Wawrinka over Lopez
    Tipsarevic over Troicki
    Murray over Bedene (i’ll look into handicapping games)
    Muller over Basilashvili in straights
    Chardy over Herbert
    Isner over Cilic (Cilic has been atrocious in TBs)
    Medvedev over Mahut
    Querrey over Norrie in straights

  7. Tuesday –
    Queens:
    Raonic over Kokkinakis in 2 (totally healthy Kokkinakis would have a shot)
    Wawrinka over Lopez in 3 (Stan has beaten Feli on grass before and seems more serious about this grass season after adding Annacone to his team)
    Murray over Bedene in 2 (Murray ended the clay season well enough to have a great grass swing)
    Isner over Cilic in 3 (Cilic lost to a very similar opponent just a couple days ago)
    Benneteau over Ward in 2 (Ward has done nothing since those Davis Cup heroics and Wimby run from a few years ago)
    Herbert over Chardy in 3 (P2H has a good grass court game)
    Querrey over Norrie in 3 (feels like a trap match to me for some reason but I can’t pick against the heavy favorite)
    Johnson over Kozlov in 2 (Stevie is a clear favorite despite some quite impressive qualifying wins for Kozlov)
    Troicki over Tipsarevic in 2 (Troicki won their only previous grass match and Tipsy isn’t the same as he used to be)
    Muller over Basilashvili in 2 (Gilles on a roll)
    Mahut over Medvedev in 3 (Medvedev is playing solid grass tennis but Mahut S&V game should be enough to unsettle and beat the Russian)
    Halle:
    Nishikori over Verdasco in 3 (Kei isn’t bad on grass but he isn’t great and Nando is mostly the same but less consistent)
    Haas over Tomic in 2 (Tomic probably won’t handle the home crowd well)
    A. Zverev over Lorenzi in 2 (especially on grass)
    Federer over Lu in 2 (I expect a much deeper run in Halle from Roger)
    M. Zverev over Lacko in 3 (Lacko is a tough opponent on grass but Zverev is playing well lately)
    Haase over Ferrer in 2 (Ferrer will probably need a great draw at Wimby to win a match)
    Paire over Mayer in 3 (Mayer is out of form and has pressure to do well here while Paire played great tennis in Stuttgart)
    Pouille over Struff in 3 (Pouille fights better than most and will grind his way past the big hitting but often nervous Struff)
    Bautista Agut over Berlocq in 2 (RBA is the much better player on grass)
    Khachanov over Simon in 3 (Khachanov will power past the out of form Simon)
    Karlovic over Youzhny in 2 (Dr Ivo loves the grass)

    • Ricky only the 3 below matches are missing from your great official prediction!

      1) Bautista Agut VS Berlocq
      2) Khachanov VS Simon
      3) Karlovic VS Youzhny

      Probably it got cutoff when you cut and posted it here from Word! (…got cut off just like that of a lizard’s tail!lol Don’t worry it will grow back!lol).

  8. Pick of the day: Chardy. The french won against F.Mayer. The french won against Thompson which is in a very good form. Plays against Herbert who lost to Kozlov 2-0. Against Herbert who often comes to the net but Chardy knows how to play that game as well.

    And one pick that is different from your predictions: Struff wins against tired and not so much motivated Pouille. Remember the match between them few days ago ? Struff played better. Won more points, had more chances to break. Remember the last 2 points ? Pouille had some luck. He has no points to defend here. Struff plays ‘home’. So, instead of betting on in-form Pouille, better 2-0 Benneteau or A.Riske WTA 🙂

    • Christian, do you think Riske will beat Donna Vekic?

      Vekic may be a bit tired from winning last week’s event but isn’t she is greater form? Shouldn’t she win against a flakey Riske? Her name(Riske) itself says that it is a Risk to bet on Riske!lol

      Pouille may be tired also from playing many matches last week and is ripe for an upset. But Pouille has that french fighting spirit in him. So, he will fight and the total will easily go over or into 3 sets.

  9. And one question for you guys: why do you think that most of the big bookies opened 2-0 Fed against Lu with 1.36 ? Too big in my opinion.

    • Roger, I should warn you that I don’t bet — I do the brackets ATP and WTA every week on the Tennis Draw Challenge as one step in keeping up to date; and I follow qualifications for potential talent and… it’s fun. I love WTA. We have a small group of bracket players on TDC. Kpuppy has the highest cumulative winning percent in our WTA group. Maybe ATP, too. And our ToMMo posts on the WTA page here – he’s from Hungary. All three of the regular guys in the group bet. Mira Andi, Welsh witch (a very experienced bracket gamer), and myself make up group Jalep_Wildguess and I would be very happy to have you join us on TDC 😀 No pressure…you don’t have to play weekly. There’s 14 in the group but only 5 of us are regulars. Others turn up for just GS tournaments.

      I won the entire Stuttgart tournament (no money, dang it) by picking Pouille to win! I was the only one out of the entire entrant list TDC to pick Pouille. Ahh, had I only put a few dollars on him. It’s tempting. Pouille is such a good competitor — he doesn’t give up. I didn’t notice Pouille that much last year but I’m liking what I see of his grass game. He’s hard to push back and boss around. I hope we get to see Fed vs Pouille in Halle. He has to get by Florian and Fed has to pass the Other Zverev test first.

      Okay so I missed a day or two picking WTA. Usually I post on the WTA page but I’m not sure anyone can find the WTA page on Tenngrand lol. You have to know where to look, it’s not straight-forward 😀

      Thursday Mallorca
      Sevastova, Flipkens, Azarenka, and Garcia. Azarenka looks as fit as I’ve seen her — she just needs the match play and she’ll be tested tomorrow vs Ana Konjuh. Flipkens is just better than Roberta Vinci this year. Garcia over Cepelova, and the tough one is Sevastova v Lepchenko. Sevastova did well last year in Mallorca but I have never seen Lepchenko on grass – she might be dangerous.

      The two players in Mallorca that impress me the most are Cici Bellis and it appears Sabine Lisicki is back! Two very interesting matches on Friday: Bellis vs the Other Pliskova, and Lisicki vs Goerges. Goerges is favored but I like Sabine on grass. Cici and Kristyna — odds are very close.

      Birmingham:
      The favorites are Svitolina, Mugu, Mladenovic, and Konta. And I like Kiki and Elena to win their matches. I never know about Mugu – Riske could beat her – Mugu is too inconsistent for me – on the other hand she could win the title; and poor Konta has to put up with Coco Vandewehge. Those last two matches — pfft.

      Petra Kvitova though, wow! I did not pick her to win Birmingham but she looks way better than what I expected. She was a bit shaky at FO and said gripping the racquet was still a bit painful. I haven’t heard or read any remarks of discomfort this time… Go Petra Pojd! She’s queen of grass to me.

  10. Roger – Yes, I believe that Riske will win over Vekic. Good season in 2016 on grass. Her stile is suitable with grass. Hardly lost to Rybarikova who is playing good atm. Revenge time after losing 2 times to Donna. Had time to do again her homework, meaning that she knew since Sunday that she’ll be playing Vekic. Being invited by organizers to some events at this tournament => happiness, high spirit. On WTA matters more than on ATP this type of activities. And last but not the last, the odds worth. 1.55. If we had 1.30 on WTA then it wouldn’t.
    Now tell me about your opinion on opening odds 1.34-1.36 2-0 Fed today 🙂
    I know that bookies when set an odd, they expect the number and/or the amount of bets/money that will be staked so, wasn’t it too big / was a trap ? If so, I took it..

  11. Unbelievable WTA is more predictable than ATP

    Record so far today in APT: 5/8

    Record so far in WTA: 10/13

    Steaming BS, I’ll stick to WTA.

  12. Lopez beating Wawrinka is not a surprise. He should cruise to the finals from this point on. Nobody can realistically be a threat. Haas losing to Tomic is the number 1 upset for me today, Tomic is absolutely useless and somehow he loses to him. And what’s wrong with Pouille, guy wins Stuttgart beating the likes of Lopez and is troubled by Struff.

    • I backed Tipsarevic and of course he fails, he had a chance to win both times without going to TB. I can’t believe Karlovic is losing to a way past his prime Youzhny. I’m not watching any of the matches but it seems the servebot isn’t his usual self today.

    • Pouille is tired and Struff is a big hitter and good grass court player. Struff winning would not have surprised me. Problem with Struff is he is weak mentally.

  13. Tuesday –
    Queens:
    Troicki over Young in 3 (Troicki has had a lot more grass success and success here than DY)
    Muller over Tsonga in 3 (sticking w my pick from start of tourney and I think Gilles has the kind of game to be able to play well enough even with some fatigue)
    Dimitrov over Benneteau in 2 (Grigor looked great last round)
    Berdych over Shapovalov in 3 (I expect Denis to give Berdych a real test and maybe even score the upset)
    Halle:
    Gasquet over Tomic in 3 (pretty tough call on grass)
    Brown over Bautista Agut in 2 (Dreddy is gonna ball for the home crowd and RBA isn’t great on grass)
    Kohlschreiber over Zverev in 3 (Kohl is very good at Halle and Zverev could be feeling some pressure to defend finalist points)
    Thiem over Haase in 2 (not many guys are playing better than Thiem)

  14. MainATP writes here after F.Mayer won. Where is the added value mister ? Or just wanted to say that you won some “easy money” ? Hint for others as well.

  15. So far a good day:

    Gasquet over Tomic-won, Gasquet is still a good player. Tomic isn’t.
    Brown to win a set against RBA-won, RBA has a nasty habit of dropping a set to far inferior players than Brown so this made sense
    A Zverev over Kohl in straights-won
    Thiem over Haase in straights-lost. Thiem is clearly not as good on grass as on clay and Haase is better on grass.

    Young over Troicki-Won. Troicki can’t hold serves, Young took Kyrgios to TB’s. Seemed obvious actually
    Muller to win a set against Tsonga- Won. This was safe, Muller is a servebot and I knew he would at least get to tiebreaks where he would have decent chances of beating Tsonga. Didn’t think he would win in straights though.
    Benneteau (4 game handicap over Dimitrov)-Seemed like a safe one. Dimitrov is generally overrated and Benneteau quite underrated. won
    Shapovalov (4.5 game handicap over Berdych)-looks good, his best surface is grass and he seems like a solid player. I won’t be surprised if Berdych wins but he’s not the same player he was 5 years ago. An upset could happen. It looks like we’re heading towards a TB for set 1 and I favor Dennis.

  16. Predictions for tomorrow:

    Khachanov to win a set against Nishikori, Nishikori is really overrated, Khachanov is underrated.
    Youzhny-Rublev-over 2.5 sets, can’t really tell who will win this one, I don’t think it’ll be a 2 set affair
    Pouille over Mayer-Pouille should win, Mayer will have crowd advantage but it won’t be enough
    Mischa Zverev (5 game handicap) against Fed-Fed is rusty and still trying to find his rhythm, Mischa is in the best shape of his life, I expect a close game, the odds are definitely wrong imo.

    Cilic over Kozlov in straights-pretty obvious really. Johnson is a mug and Cilic isn’t.
    Thompson to win a set against Querrey-I expect Thompson to win at least a set against Querrey after his win against Murray (huge mental boost). Querrey will be tough to break but will be vulnerable at tiebreaks.
    Kokkinakis over Medvedev-Kokk has definitely improved, he can beat Medvedev despite being the underdog
    Lopez over Chardy- Chardy will provide some resistance but I think Lopez can win this tournament.

    • Fedman, Very good analysis. But may not be easy for your fed(erer)!

      I also feel that Mischa being in form will give a tough time for fed and proly beat the fed. The swiss cheese (fed soft with old age) has still not found his form on grass). Fed may need a 3 tight sets to beat mischa the “mischevious kid”! Mischa should meet handicap or even beat fed if he misses tons of shots like he did against Tommy Haas!

      Medvedev should win in 3 proly. Heard that Kokkinakis has some kind of shoulder injury which might prevent him to serve and hit shots at 100% power. With a compromised shoulder you cannot win against Medvededv leave alone when healthy!

      Lopez over Chardy- Chardy will provide some resistance but I think Lopez can win this tournament.

      What?

      The big guns, Cilic and Querry will definitely throw some huge missiles at Lopez. Will Lopez survive? Let’s see. LOL

      • Hi Roger, I left you a message about wta picks. It’s up the thread at 2:39 am. Getting very psyched about the competition pretty Wimbledon!

      • Sorry but no way Fed will lose to Mischa. Look at the H2H that should be enough. Oh yeah and Fed won Melbourne Miami and IW so there’s that as well.

        • @benny An upset could happen, Federer lost a service game to Sugita and Zverev when he’s on would butcher Sugita as well. Federer lost to Haas, Mischa beat Haas convincingly a few days later. Don’t expect it to be easy, it will not be a routine win for Roger if he does win. I expect at least a tiebreak in the match and possibly a 3 setter.

      • @roger It will be interesting Mischa v Roger. I think it’ll be close, a 5 game handicap is big and I believe a 80-90% chance of happening as opposed to the almost 50:50 odds. Regarding Lopez, it’ll be tough to take down Cilic or Querrey but Lopez has proven himself to be tough to take a service game from. Expect at least a tiebreak if any of those 3 meet.

  17. 1) Cilic in 2
    2) Querry in 3. I think Thompson will go with a fight
    3) Medvedev to win he is more solid player in long term
    4) Chardy might take a set against Lopez but Lopez 2-1

  18. 1) Svitolina in 3
    2) Muguruza to win
    3) Zhang to win a set against Mladenovic
    4) Konta will win in 3
    5) Lepencheko to win a set
    6) Vinci to win but flipkens might take a set
    7) Azarenka in 3
    8) Garcia in 3

    • Good predictions Vis.

      Think Svitolina will lose to giorgi today.

      This is a week of upsets. And lose of Svitolina is perfectly in line with that.
      Svitolina’s game not suited to grass. Svit needs to use her experience and fighting spirit fully else will be shown the door by Giorgi. But anything can happen in Tennis.

      Konta can lose if CoCo can just reduce her error count and get her smashes in! Konta can’t handle power opponents(esp. after her shoulder surgery! after miami open)! See how she lost to Donna Vekic meekly. That was a horrible performance from a No.1 seed! But Konta can fight and puch to 3rd set AS CoCo is error prone!

      • Svitolina is going to win the 2nd set. Camila is a strong right outta the gate — the fight is just beginning, I think! Elina trying to hold to go up 4-0 in the 2nd set.

        • Wish I eas watching this Giorgi vs Svitolina. Elina had a 5-1 lead in the second set and it’s GONE. lol If Camila is on she’s going to try and Blitz Elina! 😀

      • You got that right, Roger! Camila is so unpredictable but yes, better on grass an she came to win — love Camila!

        Vavara Lepchenko might beat my pick Sevastova, too. third set, come on Anastasija.

        • Rat, I expected Sevastova to win(but whole world on Lepchenko) all along even tho she is unpredictable(somewhat like Ostapenko) and error prone. But she has a good serve, power shots and good returns when she is in mood! Took the over to win here!

          • I love watching Sevastova….she’s a bit more subtle and sneaky than Ostapenko.

            I don’t know what you mean by, “took the over to win here”
            sounds like a complicated art —

            • Rat, Over means the minimum over limit. In sevastova’s match it is OVER 21 and it WON!

              Wow, my fav sevastova won. She has been my fav (even tho i very well know that she has many weaknesses. Who is perfect! But, sevas will not win this tournament tho.) since the clay court matches of this year when she went on a giant killing spree of the top seeds!

          • Over 21, as in over 21 games? Yeah it was. Sevastova also made an impressive deep run at US Open last year. I really like her on court cool.

            Oh…okay. There’s ways of reducing the risk? If I lived in Las Vegas — pretty sure I’d be studying these things. Would love to bet on tennis sometimes. But don’t encourage me! hahahaha

      • Vis, Camila Giorgi won as predicted above. Therfore another highly ranked seed Svitolina falls!

        Many more seeds will fall in the next couple of days! Keep some aspirins, defibrillators etc. ready! Lol

  19. Thursday –
    Queens:
    Cilic over Kozlov in 2 (should be too big a step up for Kozlov)
    Querrey over Thompson in 3 (will be tough for Thompson to back up that win and Querrey is a great grass court player)

    • Don’t know what happened there. Didn’t mean to post already. Here are the full picks.

      Querrey over Thompson in 3 (will be tough for Thompson to back up that win and Querrey is a great grass court player)
      Kokkinakis over Medvedev in 3 (Kokkinakis has so much game and should have the skills and fight to back up such an impressive round one win)
      Lopez over Chardy in 3 (Lopez could go down as Chardy is playing quite well but can’t really argue with Feli’s great grass court game)
      Halle:
      Nishikori over Khachanov in 3 (this will be a tough test for Kei and it wouldn’t shock me if the Russian scored the upset)
      Rublev over Youzhny in 2 (as much as I hate Rublev I think he will win this one)
      Pouille over Mayer in 3 (Mayer will fight hard to defend the title but Pouille should be too tough right now)
      Federer over Zverev in 2 (should be a routine win)

in the same Rolex Cellini Replica style as the team replica watches. I find the engraving far more satisfying, but would have liked to see a bit more depth to it. There is a little more branding on the PRC200. Firstly, Burberry handbags the 6 oclock sub-dial sports a basketball image in grey. Additionally, the pushers are edged with red (top) and blue (bottom), Breitling Replica Watches UK which is, to me, the coolest thing.
