French Open Update 2017 (Biscuit needs to get better)

Hello All,

Here is an update on this year’s French Open.  I had previously said that these women would make the Quarterfinals.

Angelique Kerber

Dominika Cibulkova

Simona Halep

Svetlana Kuznetsova

Carla Suarez Navarro

Lauren Davis

Daria Gavrilova

Laura Siegemund

 

Only 3 of them are still left in the tournament.  Kerber lost, Cibulkova was upset by Ons Jabeur of Tunisia, Davis was knocked out, Gavrilova lost, and Siegemund was out with injury.

Simona Halep

Svetlana Kuznetsova

Carla Suarez Navarro

These 3 are the players to watch.  Also, Ostapenko is very dangerous; CiCi Bellis I think will lose to Caroline Wozniacki.  Muguruza is a former champion.    Svitolina is talented.  And Pliskova is #2 in the world.

So now look for these 8 in the quarterfinals.

Simona Halep

Svetlana Kuznetsova

Carla Suarez Navarro

Ostapenko

Wozniacki

Muguruza

Svitolina

Pliskova (World #2)

(and here is one more contender: Timea Bacinsky)

 

The current women’s pro tour is extremely difficult to predict.  It appears to be very common that in grand slams the upsets just rain like hellfire.  Unknown players get HOT and rip winners; the seeds get cocky and can’t make their shots, and some players just mentally breakdown.  Just look at Ons Jabeur of Tunisia!  Nobody was expecting her to come through qualifying and then knock out Cibulkova.

 

Also, on the Men’s side: Tsonga was upset in the first round.   Nick Kyrgios was defeated by Kevin Anderson of South Africa.   Monfils will play Richard GasQUET (I am expecting Monfils to win that one, BUT Richard is extremely talented on the clay)

It looks like there is a high chance of NADAL and MURRAY and DJOKOVIC and WAWRINKA going deep in the tournament.

French Open Prediction 2017 from Biscuit

Hey!  This is my early French Open Prediction!  I’m doing the prediction based on my tennis knowledge and my keeping up with the tour so far this year (also, I can not predict if people will get injured and pull out right before the tournament).

For the WTA this will be the 8 women in the quarterfinals:

Angelique Kerber 

Dominika Cibulkova 

Simona Halep 

Svetlana Kuznetsova 

Carla Suarez Navarro 

Lauren Davis 

Maria Sharapova 

Laura Siegemund

 

Kerber is a counter-puncher.  Cibulkova is a grinder.  Halep’s game is well suited for the clay (hopefully she doesn’t get knocked out by Shelby Rogers early on).   Kuznetsova is a beast and knows how to win on clay.  Navarro is a dirt-baller with a beautiful one-handed backhand.  Lauren Davis is fast and a grinder, she plays great on the clay.  Sharapova is a champion (hopefully they will let her into the tournament).  Siegemund has been playing really well on the clay and she has a really nice game so I have faith that she can make it deep.

ATP French Open QuarterFinals:

Stan Wawrinka 

Roger Federer 

Rafael Nadal 

Dominic Thiem 

David Goffin 

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 

Gael Monfils 

Nick Kyrgios 

 

I’m expecting Murray and Djokovic to get knocked out.  For some reason they are very beatable right now.  Tsonga and Monfils have the French crowd to motivate them.  Kyrgios is box-office and if his head is in the game then he can hit right through the clay no problem.  Dominic Thiem is MONEY on the clay with his game.  It is harder on the men’s side due to the depth of competition.  There are some very tough clay court players like Zeballos or Ramos Vinolas or Carreno Busta or Pablo Cuevas and these guys can be VERY VERY dangerous.  But those are my picks!

I hope my fans will comment or my haters will let me know how bad my picks are!  I also challenge other people to make an early prediction!!!

Thank you to all my fans and viewers!  Stay fluffy!
