This is Wimbledon, after all, and he is the defending champion. Britain's own Andy Murray will win.

Say what you want about the Djoker's recent troubles, but he should be able to advance to the quarterfinals.

This is Fed's tournament. Roger is dominant here, and he's looking for another major title. He will advance.

Rafa can do damage here. It's not his best event, but he's still won it a few times. He'll advance.

Milos or Sascha? This is a tough one, but I'll take Milos.

Bautista Agut is my upset pick, for no reason in particular.

Thiem has played in two straight French Open finals. But this is grass, and this is already his best placement at Wimbledon. Meanwhile, Berdych is a former finalist at this tournament, and he made the semis last year. I'll take Tomas.

Kevin Anderson's only test so far was in the first round, where he beat Verdasco. He was the beneficiary of Wawrinka's early exit. Querrey beat Tsonga in the third round, a higher seeded player. I'll take the American in this one.

Sorry for late submission, but the games haven't yet begun!

Murray
Djokovic
Federer
Nadal
Zverev
Cilic
Thiem
Anderson

btw happy, its Alex Zverev. His Sascha brother was knocked out by Federer in the previous round. I think he can beat Raonic if he can control his temper.

Alexander Jr.'s brother is Mischa. (Their father is Alexander Sr.) Mischa's brother is Sascha (Alexander).
