Tennis Picks Madrid 2013 (May 9th)

David Ferrer - 3.5 games v Tommy Haas: David Ferrer has certainly not looked himself in the last couple of tournaments so I am slightly reserved about this pick. However, I think there were definite signs that Tommy Haas was feeling a little tired after a long run in winning in Munich last week and already coming through a couple of Rounds here.

While Haas has been playing some quality tennis in 2013, it has to be remembered that he is still a 34 year old man and that someone like Ferrer can keep on the court for a long enough period to physically and mentally get the better of him.

The conditions here will at least make it easier for Haas to hit through Ferrer thanks to the altitude, but I do think the Spaniard can find a way to get through this with a 4 and 4 win.

Andy Murray - 4.5 games v Gilles Simon: Andy Murray had to really fight to get through the last Round, although I think he missed early chances to get ahead of Florian Mayer that would have made that Second Round a little easier to negotiate.

This match up is very much to Murray's liking though and I think he has dominated Gilles Simon enough in the past to think he can come through fairly comfortably. Simon will try and outlast players on the court, but he doesn't really have the one big shot that can get him out of a funk against the best players and I think that will be his problem again.

The rallies may be long, but Murray should come out on top more often than not and unless his back injury is more serious than he suggested, I think the World Number 3 will come through with a 3 and 3 win.
