TKJ's picks: Nole, Petra and Basilashvilli will win on Wimbledon opening day


Here's my picks for the opening Monday of Wimbledon:

Nole d. Draper in 3

Petra d. Sloane in 3: This will be tough, but Petra is playing well.

Basilashvilli d. Andy in 4: Andy will take one set, but he just doesn't have much left in him.

Aryna d. Niculescu in 3: This could be an upset, but I think Aryna pulls it out at the end.

Tsitsipas d. Foe in 4: Tsitsipas might struggle early, but he'll figure it out against a struggling Foe.

Hsieh d. Swiatek: Major upset? Swiatek has not looked good on the grass. Hsieh plays well at Wimbeldon.

Mugz d. Ferro in 2

Rublev d. Delbonis in 3

FeLo d. Evans in 5: FeLo still has a little left in the tank.

Venus d. Buzarnescu in 3: Venus still has a little left in the tank.

Maddie d. Swan in 2: Maddie could go a long ways this year. Did I really just type that?

Slash d. Wang in 2: Slash will take advantage of a weak draw - I think.

Cecchinato d. Broady in 4

Kohls d. Shapovalov in 5: Kohls also still has a little left in the tank.

RBA d. Millman in 5: This could go either way. I went back and forth on it, but I'll go with the seed.

O'Connell d. Monfils in 5: I know this is an upset, but would it really be a big surprise?

Pliskova d. Zidansek in 3: Let's not forget Zidansek was a French open semifinalist. This could be an upset, but I'll go with the favorite.

Sakkari d. Rus in 2

Sinner d. Fucsovics in 5: One of the best matches of the day, but I'll go with the youngster.

Watson d. Ahn in 2

Fabio d. Ramos in 3

Mertens d. Dart in 2

Big Kev d. Barrios in 4

Martic d. Gracheva in 2

Pegula d. CarGar in 3: I won't be surprised if CarGar wins this.

Herbert d. Andujar in 3

LLD d. Burrage in 2

McDonald d. Khachanov in 5: Khachanov's slide continues.

Simon d. Lajovic in 4

Pospisil d. Baena in 3

Kwon d. Masur in 3

Fokina d. Kudla in 5: This should be a great match, but I'll go with the youngsetr.

Kudermetova d. Golubic in 3

Liu d. Doi in 3

Polmans d. Lu in 4

Rogers d. Stosur in 2: Stosur has nothing left in the tank.

Garin d. Miralles in 3

Katie d. Lao in 2

Gerasimov d. Clarke in 3

Schwartzman d. Paire in 5: If Paire shows up this could be quite the entertaining match.
