SI.com predictions for the upcoming men's season - LMAO

Take a look at that!!!

SI.com's tennis experts weigh in with their predictions for the upcoming men's season:

U gotta be kidding me!! While some of the picks are ok, the fact that Andrew Lawrence can be called an expert after coming up with that stuff is beyond me!

Thoughts?

Mr Lawrence is what you would call a retard.

If any of these results occur, I will personally blow Mr Lawrence.

Federer to win the French
Del Potro to win Wimbledon
Tsonga to win US Open

After Reed and Bozo's latest outings, I thought I'd seen it all.

Re: SI.com predictions for the upcoming men's season - LMAO

i don't understand why chris hunt placed del potro as player of the year but then went on to say that Federer was going to be the year end number 1...

it's a mug era for tennis experts.

Its possible that one guy volunteers to make crazy predictions to help increase sales of SI among tennis fans. Just an interesting possibility.

Re: SI.com predictions for the upcoming men's season - LMAO

Blake already has one foot out the door. He doesn't seem to care much about tennis anymore.

Meanwhile, one of these SI experts - I forget which one - picked Safina to win Wimbledon. JMDP definitely has a better shot than her.

Re: SI.com predictions for the upcoming men's season - LMAO

Odds of occurring from most to least likey: Rogie wins FO, Tsonga wins USO, and then Del Potro wins W.

I think he's right about Rogie winning the FO, but that's about it.

Roger will win the Aus and FO again, he will also lose to roddick at wimbledon, and davydenko in the final of the us open.

Roger would have to have even more luck this year to win RG.

Re: SI.com predictions for the upcoming men's season - LMAO

Well, if Nadal doesn't make it to the final, Fed has a good chance to win FO.
If Tsonga come up with a new tennis brain, he can certainly has a chance in USO.
And, If Del Potro poisoned all the other top 32, he'll definitely have a slight chance.
