Paris-Bercy will have a first time TMS winner

There.

You may say it's not a bold prediction, but the fact is a few guys besides the main 3 also have TMS titles. Tsonga and Berdych to be precise. However I'm going to stick my neck out and say that the winner of Paris is going to be a first time TMS winner. Who that is I do not know, but with the lack of a week between Bercy and WTF, I expect to be right.

Hm, I think Berdie may take this one. I don't think he fancies his chances against one, let alone two of the top 3.

Warlocq. He plays his best indoors, or at least he shows less mercy (or should I say Bercy?) on indoor courts.

I think Raonic has a great chance to win it.

Well ofc, Tipsarevic won't be clowning around this time, gifting Berdshit matches on MP. He shloud have been in the SF last year, now he'll be on a mission to win it all. The rest of the mugs can go home. Ooops, sorry, I read WTF, but w/e, he'll win Paris too just for fun.

Re: Paris-Bercy will have a first time TMS winner

In other words you think Del Potro will win?

I mean, is there anyone else among non-M1000 winners who has a chance to do it?

Bold Prediction

This makes a certain player the favourite for Bercy. Glad these bold predictions always comes to fruition

So I was recently informed that my signature was empty and needed a life affirming quote from an inspirational figure like Shakespeare or Oscar Wilde...

When I die my mates had better not tweet some cheesy crap like I'm watching over them or some jazz. Watch your train-wreck lives? I'll take my chances in hell.

Wow, I almost forgot Delboy hasn't won one... Hope he wins Paris but then he'll be exhausted for the WTF :/.

You'll laugh, but why not Ferrer? He's not the type to tank, whereas all the WTF main challengers will either be skipping it or tanking their way out after defending points. Whereas you know Ferrer will play it and Bercy is slow enough these days for him to cope.

Would be great if he won Paris and had deep runs at WTF and Basel (as well as winning Vienna as he should). Would allow him to get close to Nadal in the rankings and try and snatch #4 from him early next year especially with Rafa still rusty. That's why his latest injury made me more upset than usual, with Rafa out it was a great opportunity to gain ground if he hadn't missed the Asian swing.

Because it's an indoor tournament. I'd expect any of the big hitters to blow him off the court, or even a guy like Isner who he lost to here last year.

Isner's a potential winner.

As for Del Potro, it depends on whether he prioritises WTF and tanks his way out, I suppose.

Yup, Isner could do it, so could Raonic I guess. Or even a guy like Cilic.

Del Potro has Vienna, Basel, Paris and WTF in his schedule. On the one hand, I want him to play them all and go deep in them all, but probably wouldn't be the best way to maximize his WTF performance.
