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?"
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?
Quarterfinals Rafael Nadal vs. Gilles Simon Andy Murray vs. Nicolas Almagro David Ferrer vs. Roger Federer Tomas Berdych vs. Novak Djokovic
Semifinals Nadal over Almagro Djokovic over Federer
Finals 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
Semifinals Stosur over Schiavone Azarenka over Sharapova
Finals 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:
An old friend of mine and I used to talk tennis for hours, whether it was our own games or what was happening in the pros. I've started Tennis Talk, Anyone? to, well, talk tennis with an even broader crowd! My name is Van Sias and I've been playing for 20 years now, and not only am I player, I'm a huge fan of the game as well: pro, amateur, you name it. I'll post links to news items related to the sport, and offer my own personal opinion, predictions and hopefully get some of yours as well.
