I feel like you about most of the picks, however not really about Ancic winning Hamburg and Ginepri reaching USO final.

Indian Wells and Miami finals are staying as best of 5 sets as they're 10 day tournaments.

I think Nadal is more likely to win Monte Carlo and Federer Rome than the other way around.

I agree with several of your predictions. Though I don't see Nalby making the Miami final, Robby making the USO final or Ancic winning Hamburg.making Wimbly final. I think Roddick will make the USO final again and I see Murray being a threat at Wimbly this year, I'd also think Blake will make the Miami final. Overall pretty good! :yeah:

yep, pretty sure - Indian Wells and Miami were not listing in Mr Disneys list of finals to be reduced to 3 sets.

Eleven tournaments with best-of-5-set finals this past season will move to best-of-3 in 2007: Barcelona, Basel, Gstaad, Kitzbuhel, Stuttgart, Vienna and the ATP Masters Series events in Hamburg, Madrid, Monte-Carlo, Paris, and Rome. ATP Tennis Masters Series tournaments Pacific Life Open and Sony Ericsson Open will maintain their five-set finals for 2007.

I agree with most of this, except:

I'd swap the results of Monte-Carlo and Rome.
Nadal will win Hamburg beating Ancic in the final.
It takes a dramatic 5-set finale for Federer to beat Nadal at RG.

I don't think Roddick will make any GS finals this year. He's avoided Federer on his side of the draw for 3 years now so the law of averages will come back to haunt him. I think he'll lose to Federer in the semi-final of both Wimby and the USO.

Also Lopez will make the finals of Barcelona and lose to Nadal in 3 sets.

These three seem rather courageous to me. I don't see Ancic winning Hamburg, I have dificulties to imagine Ginepri in a GS final, but Moyá taking Bercy, not even in dream world. ;)

It doesn't make much sense to think further than Miami at this point, I think that Roger will win IW but will lose early in Miami.

Xristos

Nope, he will win both I say.

Who do you think will win Miami if not Federer Merton?

It depends on the draw, but it could be a breakthrough win for Djokovic or Murray.

and i do think Federer will take Monte Carlo and Nadal Rome.

Not sure about the FO though.

But Ginepri?? and Ancic in GS finals, wtf?

im just sayin man, some of your picks are a bit off. youve got some right. And some are wrong. when was the last time Moya won....ANYTHING? or Ginepri got to a final? or Federer beat Nadal on clay? or Nalbandian made a final?

Ok I admit I might have gotten the Moya one wrong but we shall see...

No you didn't get it wrong. He is back in the mix this year, making the semis and the final of his 1st 2 events this year. He just had the unfortunate draw against Blake at the Open coming off the final in Sydney a few days earlier. That's just a bit too much for him at this stage. Let him come into a clay event well rested and he will do very well. As you say, we will see...
