Jon Wertheim Roland Garros seed reports: Pliskova def. Halep to win first Slam

https://www.si.com/tennis/2019/05/23...dictions-picks

I'll have my opinion on this later.

As for me, i'm doubtful any of our picks are looking alike. As we've seemingly had a surprise SFist in almost every Slam recently, I may pick Maky, but I need coffee and energy to carefully study the draw . Should see something from me by Saturday.

Yup... Hard to build an ATP-WTA team this time around.

He didn't even pick, in my opinion, the favorite to reach the SF.

Re: Jon Wertheim Roland Garros seed reports: Pliskova def. Halep to win first Slam

How can we take seriously a journalist that still has a player who withdrew (Raonic) in his seed report ? (or who doesn't mention former QFinalist and homegirl Garcia at all).

TT Singles Titles (5) - Wimbledon 2013 - Charlottesville 50k 2013 - Saint Gaudens 50k 2013 - Nantes 50k 2014 - Macon 25k 2019
TT Singles other results - FO SF 2013 - AO Final 2015
TT Doubles Titles (8) - Seoul 2014 (with Andreas) - Osaka 2013 (with matthias) - Saint Martin 10K 2013 - Orlando 10K 2013 - Sibenik 10K 2013 - Charlottesville 50K 2013 - Nantes Challenger YEC 2013 - Shrewsbury 60k 2019 (all with charmedRic)

What's Wertheim got against Pliskova that he has to put a curse on her? Poor Bot.

Agreed. His assessment of Sevastova is not only hilariously off the mark, but also factually inaccurate (she reached the fourth round, not the quarters in Australia).

And, true to form, he can’t resist (or bother to do any real research) picking the Bryan Brothers.

Another embarrassing lack of effort.

He hardly mentioned Bertens at all.
