You know, I thought of breaking up the "Big 4" on my own with my Wimbledon predictions, but I couldn't do it. I have all four in the semifinals.
And one familiar favorite coming out on top. With the rankings battle in full effect, I'm picking Roger Federer to win the title.
But in true TTA? fashion/tradition, I give you picks from the round of 16 on:
Round of 16
Novak Djokovic (1) vs. Jeremy Chardy
Richard Gasquet (18) vs. Tomas Berdych (6)
Roger Federer (3) vs. Xavier Malisse
John Isner (11) vs. Janko Tipsarevic (8)
Andy Roddick (30) vs. Juan Martin del Potro (9)
Milos Raonic (21) vs. Andy Murray (4)
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (5) vs. Bernard Tomic (20)
Feliciano Lopez (14) vs. Rafael Nadal (2)
Djokovic vs. Gasquet
Federer vs. Tipsarevic
Roddick vs. Murray
Tsonga vs. Nadal
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.
