Winners

Men

I’ll take Rafa in the semis over Roger and Djoker over Kevin Anderson. I’ll take Rafa over Djoker as the superb Spaniard captures his 19th major. He has 1 Australian Open title in 2009, 2 Wimbledons (2008, 2010) 3 U.S. Opens (‘10, ‘13, ‘17) and 12 French Open championships. He’s hot right now and he carries that all the way to the championship on Sunday, July 14th. With the victory, Rafa will move 1 major championship behind Roger Federer who has 20, the most of all time.

Nadal over Djoker 6-4, 5-7, 7-5, 6-7, 6-3

Women

I’m real bullish on 23 year old Aussie Ashleigh Barty. She just won the French and her court demeanor and mental toughness are spectacular.

I like Barty to capture her second major and set herself up for a very bright future in the game.

Ashleigh Barty over Karolina Pliskova 6-4, 6-2
