2015 Australian Open Predictions - Quarter Finals

How did I do last round?

Men's - 7/8
Women's - 6/8

This is where a more intelligent rating system may do better. David Ferrer, like most Spanish tennis players, is more of a clay court specialist, and could possibly have been predicted to lose to Kei Nishikori. The same could also be said of my system possibly overrating Madison Brengle, though other systems would have gone for Andrea Petkovic in round 1 and CoCo Vandeweghe in round 3, which my rating system got right.

I just scraped through the Women's Drop Out Contest, the only one I'm still in, going through as my gut feeling scoreline picks did well enough to get through. Like I said last round, this contest isn't going to be easy any more and I'm going to have to beat the average to get through, not just match it.

Now, for my Quarter final predictions.

Men's - Rafael Nadal is my highest ranked loser, and Tomas Berdych is my lowest ranked winner.

Women's - Eugenie Bouchard is my highest ranked loser, and Venus Williams is my lowest ranked winner.
