French Open quarterfinal picks, plus big news on the way!

Hey all, hope all is well! So, I've been trying to write tennis stories everywhere I can, but then I remembered, "What about TTA?"

Duh, Van!

Anyway, I usually make my picks from the round of 16 on for the Majors, but seeing as how the tournament's underway, I'm going to go back to the traditional way and just announce the quarterfinalists—at least who I think they will be! Let's start with the men, shall we?

Rafael Nadal vs. Gilles Simon
Andy Murray vs. Nicolas Almagro
David Ferrer vs. Roger Federer
Tomas Berdych vs. Novak Djokovic

Nadal over Almagro
Djokovic over Federer

Djokovic over Nadal

Now, for the women:
Caroline Wozniacki vs. Sam Stosur
Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova vs. Francesca Schiavone
Petra Kvitova vs. Victoria Azarenka
Maria Sharapova vs. Andrea Petkovic

Stosur over Schiavone
Azarenka over Sharapova

Azarenka over Stosur

And that's not all: So my next post here will be a monumental one for TTA?, and I'm preparing something to mark the occasion. If you don't see me here for a few days, don't worry: I'm not going anywhere! See you for the big post!

In case you missed them, here are a couple of stories I've written elsewhere recently:

Good pick with the Djokovic Fed semi. I'm hoping for the Fed win though!
