Re: ESPN Experts' US Open Picks

The logical sleeper pick would be Nishikori.

Has positive H2H against the 2 major seeds in his side of the draw (Cilic - Tsonga)

Re: ESPN Experts' US Open Picks

Mine

Win: Djokovic
Sleeper: Monaco (Can beat Roddick, Nalbandian, del Potro, and Seppi I think, as weird as it feels to say him. Though if Ferrer loses early, look out for Haas)
Toughest Road: Isner



Matosevic, Hanescu, Lorenzi, Kukushkin, Chiudinelli, Gulbis, Bozoljac, Gabashvili, Hernych, Brown, Garcia-Lopez, Rosol, Zeballos, Istomin, Kohlschreiber, Tursunov, Robert, Gonzalez, Monaco, Thiem, Seppi

This. I expeted BG to pick anyone-but-Fed! Cincy must have really made a big impact for him, idk why i think the draw is more relevant here and Novak didnt even give full energy to Cincy.

Go Andy!

No love for a weaponless pusher who managed to win a whole set in all of his 4 slam finals? What a surprise!

Re: ESPN Experts' US Open Picks

I'll be happy if at least 1 American makes the semis, but I'm not even sure Isner can get to the quarters.

Men's Toughest Road: Mugaco (3 picks)

Interesting

The Penultimate Enemy to all Injustice


Federer was the pioneer of first-strike all-court tennis. This is the real tennis and the beautiful game. Never forget the beauty of what was tennis. Nadull and Fakervic don't win tennis matches. They simply outlast their opponent with endless grinding and stamina. That is ugly. Beautiful tennis is gone now. Never forget the good days of real tennis.

Re: ESPN Experts' US Open Picks

Cahill is the most accurate picker so far, followed by Evert who picked the correct winners on the last 2 slams. Let's see who is the more accurate picker this time.

Re: ESPN Experts' US Open Picks

Ooh, Nishikori has beaten Cilic the last two times they met (one being at the US Open in a 5 set match). Come onnnnnnnn.

And he beat Tsonga both times they met

Re: ESPN Experts' US Open Picks

Those are experts? The only person to possibly listen to is Cahill.
