Roland Garros 2016: Quarters and Semis

by TN

After a rain-packed second week we’re closing in on the semi-finals at Roland Garros. The remaining quarter-finals happen today around 13 CET if the weather permits. Djokovic is taking on Berdych and Goffin is playing Thiem. Djokovic has an astounding 23-2 head-to-head record against Berdych so I simply can’t see HOW Berdych can beat the world number one.

Goffin has 5 wins over Thiem’s 2, but on clay the Austrian is at his best and his game has been progressing in great strides this year. It’s going to be a tight match. My feeling is that Thiem wins it in 4 sets, but if it goes 5, I would choose Goffin.

The semi-final on the other half of the draw is already set. It’s Murray vs Wawrinka with Murray leading 8-7 but Wawrinka winning their last three matches. However, I simply feel Murray is hell bent on reaching the finals this year despite a so and so performance in a couple of matches. So my pick is Murray in four sets.

Looking at my French Open predictions in total, I’ve so far managed to get 91 out of 122 matches right so far which is a percentage of 74,6 correct predictions. Can I scramble above 75%, I would be quite satisfied.
