Here we go: Grand Slam time!
The first Major of the year is a couple of days away and in true-TTA? fashion, I'm giving you my predictions from the round of 16 on. Here goes:
Novak Djokovic (1) vs. Milos Raonic (23)
Janko Tipsarevic (9) vs. David Ferrer (5)
Andy Murray (4) vs. Gael Monfils (14)
Kei Nishikori (24) vs. Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (6)
Mardy Fish (8) vs. Florian Mayer (20)
Alexandr Dolgopolov (13) vs. Roger Federer (3)
Tomas Berdych (7) vs. Marcos Baghdatis
Jarkko Nieminen vs. Rafael Nadal (2)
Djokovic vs. Ferrer
Murray vs. Nishikori
Mayer vs. Federer
Baghdatis vs. Nadal
Djokovic vs. Murray
Federer vs. Nadal
Murray over Nadal
As the headline suggests, why not now for Andy Murray? He's going to win a Major at some point; perhaps the lessons learned from Ivan Lendl will have already kicked in. I think they will.
Women's picks are on the way!
