Was far bolder going against the Djoke in 2016 than 2018.

Hiprotation.

HipRotation didn't specify Querrey at Wimbledon, just said in 2016.
Checkmate specifically chose the French Open so i'm going with his choice of Marco.
He also had to beat Carreno-Busta and Goffin which makes it an even more unlikely prediction... in a QF too.

HipRotation didn’t specify the tournament, but it was also made back in times Novak seemed unbeatable.

But Checkmate picked some random challenger guy who’s never even won a GS match in the main draw before.. I’m gonna give him a slight edge
 
Prediction without putting money means you win a big sack of nothing, and a cookie. Last year my friend made 10 grand on a 20$ bet picking eagles over patriots before the season started.

But it was a good prediction

Both are incredible predictions, but I'm going to have to go with Querrey on this one, because when it was created Djokovic looked nigh invincible.

The bigger question here is which prediction was meant more seriously and which one was just a great coincidence that started as a joke..

My guess is HipRotation’s own was made more seriously. I mean Querrey does have the game to take down almost anyone on his day. Checkmate started to back down on his prediction when he realized that the match was actually going to happen.

If I can nominate another one, it will be the thread where someone predicted the downfall of Djokovic by early 2016 based on an approx. mileage of 830 (or 930 ?) matches for ATGs. Sorry, lazy to search for the link but that's an amazing view on the sport and a near flawless prediction considering the range of years it covered and predicted on a macro scale.

The Cecchniato thread is awesome indeed, for picking a specific single event.

Both are great predictions. Querry of course wasn’t a journeyman at the time but then again Djokovic almost looked invincible while in 2018 he is loosing left and right and him loosing in a slam QF per se isn’t really a surprise. The reason why I have to give the slight edge to Hiprotation is that he said “who can STOP djokovic “ instead of only beating him once. This in combination with the fact that the loss against Querry was the beginning of the end for peak Djokovic and the unbeatable looking “Earth’s mightiest warrior” went from Nole slam to never winning a slam again until today makes the prediction even more incredible.

Querrey is well known however and has made a few second week runs at slams plus has been in the top 20 before. Where as Cecchinato!....Well I for one (and I'm sure many on here) barely knew of this journeyman who has never gone past R1 at slams. The guy is ranked 70something and probably that was his highest ranking heading into RG. On top of which OP (Checkmate) even predicted the tournament. I can only take my hat off and salute.

Great catch. 817th match if memory serves. Forgot the exact keywords to search. Someone with an elephantine memory please help us & find that thread.
