There are however some illusions with the premise that the best eight are gathering at the O2 Arena in London for the prestigious year-ending tournament. Injuries have riddled the ATP Tour in 2017 like no season in recent memory and […]

Men’s Draw and Predictions for 2017 U.S. Open

August 27, 2017

If the U.S. Open Men’s Draw, getting underway tomorrow, were a ship it would capsize. Way too top-heavy and top-heavy tips the boat. No. 2 seed Andy Murray’s late withdrawal yesterday only added to the disproportionate weight of the top half of the draw and axed any possibility of an enticing Rafael Nadal-Roger Federer final […]

August 30, 2015

It’s the last day of August and the first day of the U.S. Open tomorrow. Questions may reign about the likely winner in the men’s draw, but in reality, in my view, not many. Will there be a surprise victor, such as last year’s champion Marin Cilic? Don’t think so. I see one of the […]
