Re: Yoda Cup - 2017 French Open

Well, going to Queens followed quickly by Wimbledon has worked for Andy more than once!! Stan also seemed to have far more stamina.

I think that's his MO. He did the same last year except he lost to Murray in the SF. He goes deep at the majors pretty regularly without great results in the preceding big tournaments.

Re: Yoda Cup - 2017 French Open

Both Nadal and Ostenpenko out of Wimbledon before Semis... Grass surface difficult for these clay champions...

How different will the Hardcourts at Flushing Meadows be for the Wimbledon champions..???

Will anyone repeat as semifinalist or champion..???

Re: Yoda Cup - 2017 French Open

I feel like this was a good result for Ostapenko, first WTA player to make QFs at the tournament after her maiden slam since Clijsters a decade ago, took out a Top 5 player in Svitolina and lost to an all time great in Venus.

The transition to hardcourt from grass should be less difficult. I wouldn't expect many repeat from the Wimbledon SFists only because the group here is so unusual.

For the men, I think Federer is the most likely to be in the final four in NY. Cilic has a decent shot, he's playing well and he's won the event in 2014 and made SF in 2015. If the field is more open and he continues playing well, he absolutely could be in the SFs. Berdych and Querrey I would be very surprised to see them make a run.

For the women, I think both Konta and Venus have decent chances. Konta's best surface is heartcourts and Venus has been excellent at the majors lately. Muguruza could but I wouldn't expect it since she's been inconsistent and has never made SFs at a hardcourt slam but if she's on easily could. Rybarikova we can assume won't.

If I had to rank the likelihood of each I'd say

1. Federer (Strong possibility)
2. Konta (definite chance)
3. Venus (definite chance)
4. Cilic (Possible)
5. Muguruza (Wouldn't bet on it, but wouldn't be shocked)
6. Berdych (Unlikely)
7. Querrey (Unlikely)
8. Rybarikova (Lightning's not striking twice)

Re: Yoda Cup - 2017 French Open

Depending on the health of Murray and Joko - and with Nadal determined to redeem his Wimbledon loss - I think only Federer can repeat - And he will,

Konta has a good shot - My choice is Muguruza - But tomorrow will shed more light on where she is - At only 23 she has a shot to be the next consistent WTA player...

1. Federer (No one close at this point)
2. Muguruza (Top WTA pick)
3. Konta (Wildcard WTA pick)

Thanks for your awesome insight..!!!
