I have a guess on who will win the Aussie (Men's predictions from the 16s on)

The Aussie is here! The Aussie is here! (Well, almost. Pardon the excitement, but a tennis fan can't help it, even if it is still a day away!)

Anyway, I'm about to get down to what I like to do most of all here at TTA?: Make my round of 16 predictions. I think you're going to see a lot of the big names getting pretty deep this go-around, and perhaps the biggest of them all taking home the title. Here's how I think it will all go down:

Round of 16
Rafael Nadal (1) vs. Radek Stepanek
Mikhail Youzhny vs. David Ferrer (7)
Robin Soderling (4) vs. Ernests Gulbis (24)
Jurgen Melzer (11) vs. Andy Murray (5)
Philipp Kohlschreiber vs. Nikolay Davydenko (23)
Igor Andreev vs. Novak Djokovic (3)
Andy Roddick (8)vs. Stanislas Wawrinka(19)
Sam Querrey (18) vs. Roger Federer (2)

Nadal vs. Ferrer
Soderling vs. Murray
Davydenko vs. Djokovic
Roddick vs. Federer

Nadal vs. Murray
Djokovic vs. Federer

Federer over Nadal

That's how I see it! Stay tuned for my women's predictions.
