Third Round

Agnieszka Radwanska (5) vs. Silvia Soler-Espinosa  C

Dominika Cibulkova (16) vs. Jie Zheng C

Venus Williams vs. Aleksandra Wozniak – Venus’ comeback run continues .  C barely

Victoria Azarenka (1) vs. Heather Watson – Vika’s 2012 winning streak will grow.  C

Marion Bartoli (7) vs. Simona Halep – Bartoli will do her match routines and win.  C

Tomas Berdych (7) vs. Grigor Dimitrov – I’d love to pick Dimitrov, but I think Berdych will overpower him in the final analysis.  X (Happily wrong on this one)

Kei Nishikori (16) vs. Lukas Rosol – Form should hold in this match.  C

Maria Kirilenko (22) vs. Ksenia Pervak – I like Kirilenko’s game.  C

Flavia Pennetta (24) vs. Garbine Muguruza Blanco – The veteran should win.  X

Rafael Nadal (2) vs. Radek Stepanek (25) – Rafa does not lose this match.  C

Andy Murray (4) vs. Milos Raonic (26) – This is an intriguing match as the second best return man on tour faces a top 5 server.  Raonic will have to return well to put pressure on Murray.  N/A Sad to see that Milos is injured. 

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (6) vs. Philipp Kohlschreiber (32) – Tsonga has seemd a bit off recently so I think an able and talented opponent has a great shot at beating him.  X

Janko Tipsarevic (9) vs. Alexandr Dolgopolov (18) – This is a great match-up between two interesting players.  Dolgopolov seems to be playing better as of late.  X

John Isner (10) vs. Florian Mayer (19) – Isner keeps advancing.  C

Gilles Simon (13) vs. Jurgen Melzer (22) – Melzer is capable of winning, but I think Gilles Simon is one of the best fighters on tour.  That makes him likely to win a lot of matches in which the talent level is roughly even.  C

Ana Ivanovic (15) vs. Daniela Hantuchova (20) – If Ana is healthy, her recent renaissance will pick up steam with a win today.  C
