    Re: Predictions: Week of 9/12

    Three tournaments this week: Wismilak for the WTA; Beijing and Bucharest for the ATP.

    No real schedules available so predictions are due before the start of play on Wednesday unless we find out otherwise.

    Remember for the tournaments in Beijing and Wismilak, the start of play on Wednesday is around 1:00 and 4:00 am EDT on Tuesday.

    And Fed Cup final prediction for France vs Russia is due before the start of play on Saturday.

    Since Peter had to make his predictions before the players were confirmed and the draws were made, I have taken the liberty of making a few changes in his predictions to conform them to the draws by substituting a seeded player for any player he picked that's not in the draw and moving the players to their proper place in the draw.

    Davenport
    Kuznetsova - Bychkova
    Schnyder - Molik
    Molik - Li
    Jankovic - Pennetta
    Schiavone
    Groenfeld
    Peng - Schnyder

    Davenport
    Kuznetsova - Molik
    Schnyder - Schiavone
    Peng - Schnyder

    Davenport
    Schnyder

    Davenport


    Ferrer - Puerta
    Acasuso - Montanes
    Hanescu
    Andreev - Acasuso
    Wawrinka - Verdasco
    Matthieu - Pavel
    Monfils - Matthieu
    Calleri - Volandri

    Ferrer - Montanes
    Acasuso
    Wawrinka - Verdasco
    Monfils - Matthieu

    Ferrer - Monfils
    Wawrinka - Matthieu

    Ferrer – Monfils


    Coria - Nadal
    Ferrero - Hrbaty
    Moya - Nalbandian
    Nadal - Ferrero
    Nalbandian - Moya
    Roddick - Johansson
    Rusedski - Youzhny
    Phillipoussis - Coria

    Coria - Nadal
    Moya - Ferrero
    Nadal - Moya
    Roddick - Coria

    Moya - Nadal
    Nadal - Moya

    Nadal


    Of course if any of the players lose in the first round, I will substitute the winner of that match for the player.

    Hey, Dude, you're a bit late. I'll see if I can salvage any picks.

    Re: Predictions: Week of 9/12

    Okay, Dude:

    You lose Davenport, Li and Schiavone in Wismilak. I'll substitute Bychkova and Pennetta in the semis, Molik and Schnyder in the final and Schnyder as the winner.

    You lose Nalbandian, Ferrero, Moya and Johansson in Beijing. No semis substitute but I'll substitute Coria for Johansson in the final.

    You lose Puerta, Andreev and Mathieu in Bucharest. No substitutions in the semi but I'll substitute Acasuso and Verdasco in the final with Acasuso to win.

    Best I can do.
