Tennis Picks – US Open – Nadal to step it up

John Isner – Gilles Simon
Isner has played tie breaks in the 1st and 2nd round of this tournament and is current tie break-king on the tour. Simon played out 2 tie breaks against Del Potro in the 3rd round, and also went through a breaker in the match before that.

Gilles Muller – Rafael Nadal
You’ve seen Murray and Federer turn it on in style the last 2 nights completely sweeping away their opponents. Nadal is capable of doing the same, he has yet to lose a set, didn’t even give one up against dangerous Nalbandian and he also beat Muller 3-0 at Wimbledon in june.

Angelique Kerber – Flavia Pennetta
I dare not bet that Kerber can go all the way, since Pennetta is the more seasoned pro and actually her best Grand Slam-results came at the US Open. Still, Kerber has been flying so high that I believe she’s capable of pushing the Italien wide. She beat Radwanska in the 2nd round and has wasted little time in the following 2 round.

Samantha Stosur – Vera Zvonareva
I didn’t have much luck in going against the favourites yesterday, even though all of my outsiders took at least a set and fought out a hard match. That won’t keep my from going with 2 outsiders on Tuesday, starting with Stosur. This is a fabulous odds on someone who has beaten Zvonareva in their last SEVEN meetings. On hard court, clay, carpet and grass. Zvonareva won their first 2 meetings, both in 2004, but since 2007 she hasn’t been able to touch the Australian.

David Ferrer – Andy Roddick
The 2nd outsider I’m going for is Roddick. I utterly accept the fact that Ferrer is the favourite, he’s a better player and also leads 5-3 in their h2h. But come on, look at the odds, this is Roddick’s back yard, the only place he has won a Slam. He won’t go down without a fight.
