I see quite a bit of upset potential in round 1:

T. FABBIANO vs 7 S. TSITSIPAS - I actually think Tsitsipas gets through but he has not had good results on grass and Fabbiano might give him some trouble.

J. VESELY vs 6 A. ZVEREV - Vesely got through Qualies pretty easily has made it to 4th round before (including last year). Zverev has been up and down this year with a disappointing grass season. I think we get an upset here.


5 D. THIEM vs S. QUERREY - Thiem didn't even play a grass tournament this year. This is Querrey's best surface and he is rolling through a fairly easy draw this week at Eastbourne. I think Querrey takes this match.


F. TIAFOE vs 12 F. FOGNINI - Not sure how big of an upset this would be but Fognini has never had great results on grass although Tiafoe was awful this year with a couple of early exits. Could go either way imo.


13 M. CILIC vs A. MANNARINO - Mannarino had a good grass season while Cilic was losing to Schwartzman. I always feel Cilic can lose in any round.

27 L. POUILLE vs R. GASQUET - Not sure how big of an upset this would be but he is a seeded player. I feel Gasquet is good for a mini run and then loses in straights to a good opponent. I think Pouille does take this one though.

Upset chances:

Fognini > Zverev > Cilic

Tiafoe is too good to lose in R1. Grass is his best surface.
Tiafoe has 50% chance to upset.

Vesely has a big serve, he is lefty.
This is actually a bad match. Vesely deserves to go deeper.

Mannarino is tricky. Can frustrate Cilic. Cilic is not in the best of form.

Doubtful on Pouille vs Gasquet as unsure of either's levels.
Others will qualify.

NOt sure about Tiafoe's past results on grass but he's been horrible this year.

Thiem, Zverev and Fog are ripe for a R1 upset. Pouille's been shit this year (apart from AO) but has a good record against Gasquet, though this is their first meeting on grass. Awful as Cilic has also been in 2019, I feel he should get by Mannarino. Not particularly worried about Tsitsi getting KO'd in R1.

I don't think it would be an upset if Tiafoe does win against Fognini on grass. Cilic has been garbage this year, so again not sure I would even consider him to be a big fav vs Mannarino...Thiem vs Querry for me is an intriguing match. Thiem will be a heavy fav but I can see him struggling to deal with Sam's serve.

Kyrgios will probably tank because he's afraid of losing his edge over Rafa at Wimbledon, so that'd be the most likely upset, plus Kyrgios is not playing well anyway :eek:

With Kyrgios recent results are irrelevant. He was playing bad and injured in Acapulco until he made a great run to the title. When he sees Nadal on the other side of the net he suddenly smells blood and turns into a beast. Get your pants ready for an upset, man. If I were you I would pray for Nick to lose vs Thompson.

I so hope we get this match – it could be one of the highlights of the tournament. :D
