Bud Collins' AO 2007 Prediction Watch
I am officially on Bud "The Wrong Man" Collins' prediction watch for the finalists and winner of AO 2007. Has anybody noticed that he is on a tremendous roll?
Consider yon stat:
- he predicted that Roger would win the CY GS after Aussie Open 06
- picked a Roger - Rafael final at FO and Roger as the winner because "it was destiny"
- then he predicted on the eve of the Wimbledon final that Rafael would win because "we were possibly watching the greatest player to ever play the game and he was on the other side of the court from Federer".
- finally, he picked a Roger - Andy final at the US Open 06 and had Andy as the winner because, of course, Connors being his coach would mean a quick and comlpete ex-player-to-active-player skill transfer via that new-fangled quantum teleportation technology that was developed by the USTA early last year.
An ace, ain't he? Who will he pick this time and seal the poor soul's fate with the Kiss of Death? In Bud I trust.
