Predicted Winners in BOLD
 Novak Djokovic (SRB) vs Philipp Kohlschreiber (GER) – I would not be surprised to see this go 4 sets as this is no easy draw for the defending champion and world #1. Also, Novak has to wonder why Becker picked now to reveal their sign language. Doesn’t he pay Boris? I can see the strategy meeting. Nole, “Coach, why don’t we create a lot of controversy before I play a match against a guy better on grass than most of the seeds from 17-32?” Becker, “No problem.”
 Stan Wawrinka (SUI) vs Joao Sousa (POR) – Sousa is a solid player so if Stan has any hangover he could be in for a long day 1.
 Kei Nishikori (JPN) vs Simone Bolelli (ITA) – Is Kei healthy? If so, this could still be a tough match.
 Grigor Dimitrov (BUL) vs Federico Delbonis (ARG) – Grigor has to be happy about this draw after a poor 2015.
 Nick Kyrgios (AUS) vs Diego Schwartzman (ARG) – Can Nick power his way to the second week again?
Jarkko Nieminen (FIN) vs [WC] Lleyton Hewitt (AUS) – Rusty gets the nostalgia vote even though Jarkko is just as old.
 Marin Cilic (CRO) vs [Q] Hiroki Moriya (JPN) – Marin needs some momentum to get back the quarters.
 Milos Raonic (CAN) vs Daniel Gimeno-Traver (ESP) – Milos seems to be in good form according to various reports.
 John Isner (USA) vs Go Soeda (JPN) – The big man should win, but he needs some service breaks to shorten his matches.
 Kevin Anderson (RSA) vs Lucas Pouille (FRA) – Anderson played well at Queen’s Club.
[WC] Liam Broady (GBR) vs Marinko Matosevic (AUS)
 Richard Gasquet (FRA) vs [Q] Luke Saville (AUS) – I am breaking my own rule in picking Gasquet.
Juan Monaco (ARG) vs Florian Mayer (GER) – This is a 50-50 match in my eyes.
Andreas Haider-Maurer (AUT) vs Ricardas Berankis (LTU) – Another fun match
Victor Estrella Burgos (DOM) vs Benjamin Becker (GER) – Benjamin is still out there playing and making some noise.
Janko Tipsarevic (SRB) vs Marcel Granollers (ESP)
 Pablo Cuevas (URU) vs [WC] Denis Kudla (USA) – Kudla plays his best tennis on grass, but I still think he is an underdog.
 Dominic Thiem (AUT) vs [Q] Dudi Sela (ISR) – Thiem is a player to watch.
Dusan Lajovic (SRB) vs Tommy Haas (GER) – Haas gets another nostalgia vote.
 David Goffin (BEL) vs [Q] Horacio Zeballos (ARG) – For the Shire
[Q] Kenny De Schepper (FRA) vs [Q] John-Patrick Smith (AUS) – Two qualifiers who should be match tough have a great chance at the 2nd round of a slam.
[Q] Pierre-Hugues Herbert (FRA) vs Hyeon Chung (KOR) – Qualifying making him match tough may give him an edge.
[WC] Matthew Ebden (AUS) vs Blaz Rola (SLO)
 Tommy Robredo (ESP) vs [Q] John Millman (AUS)
Martin Klizan (SVK) vs Fernando Verdasco (ESP) – I could see this go either way. I think Klizan is the player with more of a future ahead of him, but Hot Sauce is capable.
Teymuraz Gabashvili (RUS) vs Alexander Zverev (GER)
Lukas Lacko (SVK) vs Steve Johnson (USA) – Steve Johnson should play well here.
Marsel Ilhan (TUR) vs Jerzy Janowicz (POL) – Jerzy was not expected to do much in 2013. 24 months later he is again not expected to do much. Can he find his bullying form again?
 Leonardo Mayer (ARG) vs Thanasi Kokkinakis (AUS) – Is he healthy? If so, I like the Aussie for an upset.
 Bernard Tomic (AUS) vs Jan-Lennard Struff (GER) – Tomic is in the middle of a battle with the Aussie tennis system. This is not ideal preparation for a slam, but Tomic is familiar with distractions.
Joao Souza (BRA) vs Santiago Giraldo (COL) – South America will be tuned in for this match between two guys I really enjoy watching.
Donald Young (USA) vs Marcos Baghdatis (CYP) – How do I predict this match? Baghdatis played well enough in the tune-ups to think his grass court game has a win or two in it. I think …
