Tennis Picks 2016 (June 11th)

This has become a frustrating week with missed break point chances a feature of too many picks.

It is one thing getting into a position to earn those break points, but the disappointment of those being missed only to see opponents take the limited chances that come their way is hard to take.

You have to ride with that during the grass court campaign though and hope some of that luck evens up through the next few weeks.

Nicolas Mahut - 1.5 games v Sam Querrey: Both of these players have had considerable success on the grass courts in their career and you can't take anything away from the performances Sam Querrey and Nicolas Mahut have produced so far this week. That should mean both are confident and a big serving display from each could mean we are going to see limited break points in this one.

Taking those will be difficult too, but I do think Mahut is very comfortable in Hertogenbosch and that could prove to be a difference maker in this match. There isn't much between the players as both can be very tough to attack when they are serving big on this surface.

However Querrey is much more comfortable playing from the baseline and he may be asked to make some awkward passes against a very good net player in Mahut. That pressure can wear players down when they don't have the best returns and I think Mahut will favour himself in the rallies that get past four shots, even when Querrey is serving.

They played a very tight match at the US Open last year and I think this one will be very close too, but I will look for Mahut to just make the big plays at the right moments to record a 75, 76 win.
