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


DCR d. Hercog in 3: I love DCR so I will go with her, but I won't be surprised if Hercog wins.


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.


Vera d. Bouzkova in 2


Li d. Podoroska in 3


Jabeur d. Peterson in 2


Alexandrova d. Siegemund in 3


Rinderknech d. Otte in 3

Kuz d. Kerhove in 2


Opelka d. Koepfer in 3


Rybakina d. Kiki in 3: I wish Kiki could win this, but I don't see it happening. She will be lucky to win a set.

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.


Vesely d. Hanfmann in 3


McHale d. Brengle in 3: Someone has to win this.


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.


Barthel d. Zhu in 2


Record: 3-1, 203-126 :.617
