Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (6) vs. Xavier Malisse – It is a good showing for Malisse to get this far, but I like Tsonga.  C

Andy Murray (4) vs. Alejandro Falla – Falla could make Andy work, but after Indian Wells, I can’t see Murray stumbling twice.  C

Gilles Simon (13) vs. Roberto Bautista-Agut – Simon is a tough customer.  C

Radek Stepanek (25) vs. Tommy Haas – This is a great veteran match-up, and Haas should prevail.  X
