Nick’s Picks- Day 7 at the US Open

Andy Murray vs. Florian Mayer

Mayer is an excellent ground striker with no great weakness. To beat Andy you have to be explosive with a couple of big guns. I believe that Murray is taking one step at a time. I find it difficult to believe that Mayer can beat Murray.

Nick’s Pick- Andy Murray



Sloane Stephens vs Serena Williams

This will be the match of the day to watch. Sloane is America’s next hope. Serena Williams is and must be considered one of the very best in the history of the game. Winning this tournament is a must for her. This will be a high tension match because Serena is the queen and she does not want her throne taken from her. Serena must come out swinging and can’t give Sloane an indication that she may win.

Nicks pick- Serena to win, but who knows what might happen



Jelena Jankovic vs Li Na

Jelena has made her mind up to be in the top 10 again. She has solid ground strokes and a more aggressive serve. Her movement is as good as it can be.

Li Na is a steady on top of the baseline player. She doesn’t miss. She is very confident and has a good serve. She forces her opponents to miss because she gets everything back.

Nick’s pick- I am smelling a possible upset. Jelena to win



Tommy Haas vs Mikhail Youzhny 

You don’t hear of Youzhny being a threat to win a grand slam, but he is a fierce competitor with good ground strokes.

Tommy has one if the best one handed backhands of the world with a big forehand. His movement is excellent. He is not afraid to attack the net either. Tommy must control his temperament tomorrow. Can’t break his focus.

Nicks pick- This match won’t be quick, but I think Haas will pull it out.
