Summary:

Best first-round match
John Isner (http://sports.yahoo.com/ten/players/4316/) vs. Nicolas Mahut (http://sports.yahoo.com/ten/players/639/)

Best first-round upset possibility
Philipp Petzschner (http://sports.yahoo.com/ten/players/692/) d. Robin Soderling (5)


Best possible second-round match
Novak Djokovic (2) vs. Kevin Anderson

Best possible third-round match
Rafael Nadal (1) vs. Milos Raonic (31)


Best possible quarterfinal
Andy Murray (4) vs. Andy Roddick (8)


Semifinal predictions
Roddick d. Nadal
Federer d. Djokovic


Federer does it again to Djokovic, denying him his first Wimbledon. The consolation prize will be Djokovic ascending to No. 1, which will happen if he makes the semis and Nadal fails to win the title.


Finals prediction
Federer d. Roddick

The rematch of the 2009 final is considerably less climactic, as Federer rolls over Roddick and ties Sampras with seven Wimbledon titles.

Roddick may have to get through Murray first. I know he did in 09 but at Queens Murray owned him so it could be a close call.

If Roddick plays anywhere near his 2009 form, he could very well beat Nadal. Like that its nearly impossible to break his serve on grass.

Another lame slam final by the sounds of that prediction.
Would be nice to see Roddick do well but to act as the pidgeon to Fed again, yawn.
Hope he is wrong in that aspect then at least :twisted:

Every prediction blown. Except that Soderling did get upset, although not by PP.
Finalist Roddick upset too.

I think even I did better than Chris in my own bracket.

I think Nadal's chances are much better now than before the Muller match. That was a match that if Nadal was just a bit suspect, Nadal should have lost the first two sets.
