2017 French Open – Early Predictions

June 1, 2017

I know, I know, this blog has been neglected. Say no more. Travel, work, and depression at another Federer-less French Open has kept the presses from running. But fear not, Up Two Breaks is back and soon to be better than ever. In the meantime, let’s take a stab at a few banal predictions based on play at the first two rounds of the 2017 French Open.

  1. Thiem will go deep. He looks like a man on a mission with convincing wins against Tomic and Bolleli. Look for him to win big against Steve Johnson, setting up a Round of 32 matchup with Goffin and potential quarter against the Djoker.
  2. Rafa will win it all. Nothing more to add here.
  3. Halep will win the women’s tournament. This is a pretty spurious prediction since it’s impossible to make a reasoned prediction for the women’s bracket. However, it’s about time she won a slam, and her strong first two rounds make clear she wants it.
  4. Muguruza is a threat. She’s not played well recently, but the defending champion is playing with pluck in the early rounds.
  5. The Bryan Brothers are back! Haven’t actually watched them play, just felt the need to include a doubles match.
