ESPN expert picks

http://espn.go.com/sports/tennis/picks/_/tournament/6

No one pick a Williams sister to win the tournament !?

6 of 9 took Sharapova to win it.

Early exit: 5 of 9 took Schiavone.

Sleeper: 3 of 9 took Hantuchova,
4 of 9 Venus Williams.

(Two of nine took Nadal as early exit,
that's very surprising...)

Titel [Suicide T.]: Linz 2015, Marrakesch 2014, YEC 2014, Rom 2013, Guangzhou 2013, Peking 2012 und Fes 2012
[TT]: ITF Cagnes-Sur-Mer 2011 und ITF Hechingen 2012
[TT D]: ITF Shrewsbury 2012 (mit Hapsara) und ITF Biarritz 2013 (mit Heinann)
[FITD]: Budapest 2013

Re: ESPN expert picks

@ all the Sharapova picks. They'll be singing a different tune very soon.

And @ the last guy picking Wozniacki

And here you are, a black unicorn.
Mythical and mystical since the day that you were born.

Re: ESPN expert picks

Surprising to me that nobody picked Serena. I know it's her 2nd tournament back and everything, but still. I guess they are all just playing safe.

Re: ESPN expert picks

Drysdale, McEnroe and Shriver. Rafa and Nole for early exits? And Tandon - pick Rafa to win, but Raonic as a Sleeper (would play Rafa in 3R). Do these people even look at the draws?


Oh, women's tennis. Meh. They mailed it in - Sharapova playing well, Hantuchova an obvious sleeper pick w/out her injury, Fran and Serena not expected to do much.

Re: ESPN expert picks

I think they do those picks before the draw was released.
But as tennis experts they should know you can't give picks before the draw is released.

It says on the page that the picks are based on the draw.
