How good were our Bold tennis predictions for 2018?

22nd November 2017 was the day when we published our bold tennis predictions 2018. Some of predictions were called crazy at that time, some incompetent, and some were surprisingly praised by our readers. And as we were not afraid to publish predictions, we are also not afraid to say how good or wrong they were. Here is the list of the predictions compared with reality.

Result: FEDERER – WOZNIACKI

Our commentary:

I was wrong and the public was right (at least in men’s draw). My both picks lost before the semifinals. Pliskova in quarterfinals and Djokovic even one round sooner. Novak Djokovic was not absolutely healthy what takes him out of the real attack on title. Karolina Pliskova met Simona Halep in quarterfinals and Simona is not her favorite opponent. Karolina did not resist at all.

The public was correct in seeing Federer as the winner. Almost half of our readers gave him the vote and were absolutely right. He lost his first set in final and nobody except Marin Cilic was able to resist him. Women pick was influenced by Serena Williams withdrawal. But other choices were Halep, Muguruza, Wozniacki which means the people have finalist almost right.

NUMBER ONE POSITION

TennisProGuru picks for number one position:
NADAL to FEDERER to DJOKOVIC

HALEP to PLISKOVA to MUGURUZA to PLISKOVA

Result:
NADAL to FEDERER to NADAL
HALEP to WOZNIACKI to HALEP

Our commentary:

Pliskova disappointed us at Australian Open, however quality of tennis played from quarterfinal at Ladies draw was outstanding. Wozniacki deserved her first Slam win and return to no. 1 position.

Federer is great, he plays great tennis and with Nadal injury, it was just question of time for Roger to become the oldest number one in history. Monday 19th February it is the reality. We were right at least with it.
