ATP Picks: Winston Salem

This brand new state -of-the-art tournament replaces the New Haven event and is the final warm up before the big one in New York.

Mardy Fish withdrew sensibly, but there are plenty of big names including wild cards Hewitt and Blake.


Roddick as we know is coming down to get his head straight and win some matches and I’m liking the looks of Kevin ‘Mr.’ Anderson, Sergiy Stakhovsky and Robin ‘Schlobber’ Haase to possibly win the title.

Wake Forest University

I do however give the edge to Long John Isner, who’s comign of age this season to take care of business.

Plenty of other players desperately need a few wins here including Jurgen ‘Tuna’ Melzer, Alex ‘The Dog’ Dolgopolov and Marcos ‘The Bagman’ Baghdatis. Should be fun!

Long John Isner
