Day 7 Roland Garros Picks
Well yesterday 8 out of 10 in the men's, my long shots failed namely Baghdatis and Bakker!Below are my picks for today.
Victor Hanescu(ROU) vs. Novak Djokovic(SRB)
Is it not time Djokovic takes a dizzy spell or something or is that next round so Ill go for Novak today.
Lleyton Hewitt(AUS) vs. Rafael Nadal(ESP)
By the time Sky NZ switches to the tennis Hewitt will be done and dusted ,Nadal was injured last year and beat him so what will he do to the Aussie Battler this year.!
Andy Roddick(USA) vs. Teimuraz Gabashvili(RUS)
Roddick trying for his best French Open ever! Surely he must run into a name soon and send him off across the channel.
Fernando Verdasco(ESP) vs. Philipp Kohlschreiber(GER)
This is a tricky match up cant under estimate the German and Vedasco has been just scrapping through.Will go with the lefty from Spain.
Jurgen Melzer(AUT) vs. David Ferrer(ESP)
Ferrer is in good form and should be to tough for Jurgen
Juan Carlos Ferrero(ESP) vs. Robby Ginepri(USA)
Ginepri still around! Time for him to go via Juan Carlos
Ivan Ljubicic(CRO) vs. Thomaz Bellucci(BRA)
Ivan seems to have been around for yonks! Cant see him backing up after the Fish match.
Nicolas Almagro(ESP) vs. Oleksandr Dolgopolov Jr(UKR)
This is going to be close I think but Almagro to get there just.
The Chinese where sent packing yesterday along with defending champion Svetlana Kuznetsova.Picks most correct, and happy I finally backed the South African Chanelle Scheepers.
Serena Williams(USA) vs. Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova(RUS)
The Willams machine will keep moving .
Maria Sharapova(RUS) vs. Justine Henin(BEL)
MATCH OF THE DAY FOR SURE. THIS WILL BE AN INETERSTING MATCH FOR SURE.I have to go with consistency so Henin for me.
Shahar Peer(ISR) vs. Marion Bartoli(FRA)
Not many players like coming up against Marion.....not too many friends against peers! sorry for the pun.
Jelena Jankovic(SRB) vs. Alona Bondarenko(UKR)
I guess its going to be Jankovic............BUT !!!!!!!!!!!!!
Jarmila Groth(AUS) vs. Anastasia Rodionova(AUS)
How ironic a match up with "true blue Aussie's" NOT .No doubt Tennis Australia will jump on the fact that an Aussie will be in the 4th round........what development program did the come through again?
Anastasia Pivovarova(RUS) vs. Samantha Stosur(AUS)
Stotsur has looked shaky! I have a gut feeling she is going out this round or next.
Above Maria Kirilenko who put out the Defending Ladies Champ
