    Men's Draw:

    FED's Quarter:

    Fed vs. Coric 4th round: It's a best of 5, so advantage FED. FED in 4.

    Querrey vs. Anderson 4th round: Toss up, but Querrey has played well the past 2 years, so advantage him. Querrey in 4.

    FED vs. Querrey QF: Querrey has shown he can beat multiple top players. Wouldn't surprise me if he won. I'll go FED in 5.

    Cilic's Quarter:

    Cilic vs. Raonic 4th round: Cilic in 3. Better player.

    Wawrinka vs. Dmitrov 1st round: I'm scared. Wawrinka hasn't had much sustained success this year. Still, I will root for Wawrinka! Wawrika in 4.

    Isner vs. Wawrinka 4th round: This will be the first time Isner makes it past the 3rd round.

    Wawrinka isn't ready.

    Isner in 3.

    Cilic vs. Isner QF: Cilic will probably win in 3. But I hope it's a good match.

    Isner will probably not have more than 2 break points.


    Alexander Zverev's Quarter:

    Djokovic vs Sandgren 1st round: Sandgren wins a set. Djokovic in 4.

    Thiem vs. Djokovic 4th round: Thiem in 3. Djokovic not as good as Thiem right now.

    Krygios vs. Zverev 4th round: Krygios in 4.

    Djokovic vs. Kyrgios QF: Krygios in 5. Kyrgios can have some good tourneys.

    Nadal's Quarter:

    Del Potro vs. Shapovalov 3rd round: Shapovalov in 5.

    Nadal vs. Shapovalov QF: Nadal in 3. Not sure how well Shapoval does on this surface.


    FED vs. Cilic SF: FED in 3. Sometimes this is a good matchup, but I think not this year.

    Maybe I'm wrong.

    Kyrgios vs. Nadal SF: Nadal in 4. Haven't seen Kyrgios have multiple big wins too many times.

    FED vs. Nadal Finals: FED in 3. I'm not feeling a long match, either way. Not this time.


    Women's Draw:


    Halep's Quarter:

    Halep vs. Kvitova QF: Halep's been the best player all year. Halep in 3. Maybe even 2.

    Muguruza's Quarter:

    Muguruza vs. Kerber QF: Kerber is inconsistent, but I just believe in her more. Kerber in 2.

    Stephens Quarter:

    Venus vs. Krystina Pliskova 2nd round: Whoever wins, it will be in 2 sets. I'll pick Venus, but neither winner would surprise me.

    Venus vs. Karolina Pliskova 4th round: I'm going against the odds, but Venus in 3.

    Stephens vs. Venus QF: Stephens in 2. This will already have been an exhausting draw for Venus.

    Azarenka is also in this section, but I don't expect much, until she plays regularly.

    Wozniacki's Quarter:


    Wozniacki vs. Serena QF: Wozniacki in 2. Serena can do amazing things, but Wozniacki has played well enough this year to be given the benefit.


    Halep vs. Kerber SF: This is becoming some kind of rivalry. No result would surprise me, but I'll pick a possible surprise and say Kerber in 3.

    Stephens vs. Wozniacki SF: Wozniacki in 2. Just a guess.

    Kerber vs. Wozniacki Finals: Very tough call. Kerber in 2.

    Good luck in his return from injury.

    Hope to see him at the US Open. He still hasn't made a SF at the USO since winning the title.

    It’s impkrtant for Fed to get quick starts in his matches and play as many three set wins as possible.

    Why is Serena showing her fat ass? Did she design the attire herself? ‍♂️

    This is the weakest era of women’s tennis by far. Had Steffi played she would have won like 30 slams.

    That was a great match. That point to win the 2nd set was amazing.

    We have a roof but let's not use it when there is rain on the other courts even though all the matches on Centre Court are done.

    So stupid

    Given the rain delays that usually happen at Wimbledon (Including today) why they don't close the roof or have a roof over all the courts is beyond me.

    Wawrinka is down 2 sets, and up 6-5 in the 3rd.

    Let's go Wawrinka! Time for a great comeback.

    The match is suspended until tomorrow.

    Wow Pella came back from 2 sets down to force a 5th set with Cilic
