Dimitrov? are you serious? he would need a lot of luck to do it.  He has very negative record against all top players except Wawrinka (by "top players" I mean the guys that have won GS already, not Mickey mouse stars like Zverev or Thiem), I don't see him beating many of them in a match to 5 sets.

It was just my bet :d I'm bad in predictions, your probably know it :p Who will men's tournament in your opinion?

Roger 50%

Rafa 30%

Wawrinka 5%

Del Potro 5%

Djokovic 3%

Cilic 3%

Dimitrov 2%

Tsonga 2%

 

I don't see anyone else with any chance to WIN it (not to say some big upset can reach semis maybe, i'm talking just about lifting the trophy).

With a bit of luck you don't need to beat many of them :p

 I will not be shocked if Serena in some miracle will defend her title.

I would be shocked, since that would mean literally every women's player in the world doesn't show up and Serena automatically 'defends' her title....because yep, also Serena has now withdrawn.

Ass injury for Eugenie Bouchard at the Hopman Cup, hopefully it's fine before the AO.

Show some respect please, Dimitrov has a negative h2h against Zverev and despite Zverev not being ready to win a slam, he has won more masters than Dimitrov and surely has a better future ahead, so calling him a mickey mouse star is absolutely unjustified.

Very weird to mention Tsonga, Dimitrov, Cilic or Del Potro but not Zverev, Krygios and especially Goffin. When Roger and Rafa are fit, they have a 90-95% chance to win it, unless Djokovic/Murray/Wawrinka compete.

Kyrgios is injured and even if he werent he won't win this, he still doesn't care enough about tennis.

Zverev hasn't still shown anything in slams, even losing to nobodies most of the time. He will win some eventually but not now. Same goes for Thiem, although Thiem is a bit more consistent than zverev against lower ranked guys.

Goffin doesn't have the means to win a Slam i'm afraid. If guys that are more consistent than him like Tsonga or Berdych never could, then even less chance for him. 

 

PS. Maybe I was too tough saying "Mickey mouse stars", the point I was trying to make is that I see the odds given from betting houses being unreasonably high for both. Something people who follow atp closely can tell.
