Hsieh included not in the seed report but as a dark horse among the unseeded players :spit: Does anyone at SI proofread whatever Wertheim comes up with?

As I've said, if you're gonna do this, at least do all 32 seeds.

I wish I had been paid for stating something like that to mislead the world about. That freak keeps on telling us that someone outsida small true supreme circle of heavenly ones like the Granny, Doper and Guest can have a lead-up and the GS of the swing? Kill yasell you butter.

The biggest issue is in the men's by naming Dimitrov a darkhorse despite the fact he's been crap all year. I actually agree with his men's prediction, including Kyrgios reaching the semis.

Picking Simona to reach the final :facepalm:

Petra pulled out of the Bronx Open five days BEFORE the article was published :facepalm:

Why does he call Del Potro a gold-medal guy ?
Comparing Goffin to Ferrer is a stretch too.

Also it's written after the draw but he congratulates Kvitova for taking a WC in Bronx ? :confused:

The whole Petra-Bronx debacle in this article just shows that most of the seeds report is written one week in advance and then Wertheim only writes the predictions once the draw comes out.

I just love how he always handpicks one player from the 11-20 range and call it "the best player you never saw".

I thought there was lots of jobs for that in Russia? ;)

This guy is so predictable. He just picks the winner of the last big warmup event.
