EXPERT SLEEPER PICK(S)
Randy Chambers Dominic Thiem, Tomas Berdych

The no. 7-ranked Thiem seems to be the easiest sleeper pick for the tournament. He’s under-the-radar because of the names we mentioned in the intro, but he’s continuing to show his prowess on the clay – six of his 11 titles were played on such a surface and he’s 17-4 on that court this year, one of which was a huge 6-3, 6-4 upset over heavy favorite Rafael Nadal at the Rome Masters.

Chambers noted the smooth rhythm that Thiem is building as of late, and added that the Austrian can go toe-to-toe with anyone in the sport whenever he’s on.

For Berdych, meanwhile, Chambers believes the Czech possesses certain keys to make a title title run. Among them are competitiveness, powerful serve, and experience (reached the FO quarterfinals in two of his last three appearances).

EXPERT SLEEPER PICK(S)
Johnny Allen Dominic Thiem, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga

Allen is straight to the point. He believes Tsonga is France’s best chance on having a French guy win the tournament. It may sound harsh, but the veteran is playing well lately and has added a pair of titles under his belt this year (ABN Amro World Tennis Tournament and Open 13 Marseille).

EXPERT SLEEPER PICK(S)
Boris Becker Dominic Thiem, Nick Kyrgios, Alexander Zverev

Tennis all-timer Becker likes Kyrgios’s edge in experience among all youngsters, saying that the controversial Australian has the overall built – physically and mentally – to become a marquee player soon.

The same goes with Zverev, who has a pair of titles on a clay surface this year. Becker believes that the 20-year-old will cause upsets in the tournament, and that he has the tools to become a future top-ranked player, along with Kyrgios.
