Predicted Winner in BOLD
Roger Federer (3) vs. David Goffin – Maybe Goffin plays a Gilles Simon-type of game and gets into Roger’s head. I think Goffin’s run is the most improbable and exciting of the first week, but I think Federer has to be the pick here.
Novak Djokovic (1) vs. Andreas Seppi (22) – Novak should advance.
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (5) vs. Stanislas Wawrinka (18) – This is not a match I would have expected when the tournament began, but it is a credit to both guys to work through the draw. I think Tsonga wins.
Tomas Berdych (7) vs. Juan Martin del Potro (9) – I am going to pick a mild upset and say that Delpo advances.
Samantha Stosur (6) vs. Sloane Stephens – Stosur was my 2012 French Open favorite the day after she won the 2011 US Open. Since then, Sam has not played that well. Still, I think she may be rounding into contending form again.
Angelique Kerber (10) vs. Petra Martic – I’ll take Martic in an upset.
Victoria Azarenka (1) vs. Dominika Cibulkova (15) – Vika is playing pretty well after he first round troubles. I think she moves forward in the draw.
Sara Errani (21) vs. Svetlana Kuznetsova (26) – Kuzy could be a contender as well.
Sorry no video links today. I am 12-4 to this point in my predictions.
