C = Correct, X = Incorrect

Fourth Round

Maria Sharapova (2) vs. Ekaterina Makarova – I like Maria to advance.  C

Agnieszka Radwanska (5) vs. Garbine Muguruza Blanco  C

Ana Ivanovic (15) vs. Venus Williams – Based on conditioning I think Ivanovic keeps her feel good story going whereas Venus’ feel good story has a chapter come to an end.  X

Victoria Azarenka (1) vs. Dominika Cibulkova (16) – Vika keeps winning.  C

Caroline Wozniacki (4) vs. Yanina Wickmayer (23) – Wickmayer already pulled an upset so she could win, but I think Caro advances.  C

Samantha Stosur (6) vs. Serena Williams (10) – Revenge?  C

Marion Bartoli (7) vs. Maria Kirilenko (22) – I like Kirilenko’s game.  X I got this one very wrong.

Na Li (8) vs. Sabine Lisicki (12) – Lisicki is tough enough to pull the upset.  X

Third Round

Richard Gasquet (17) vs. Albert Ramos – I can’t pick Gasquet.  X

Novak Djokovic (1) vs. Viktor Troicki (27) – Nole over his countrymen.  C

Roger Federer (3) vs. Andy Roddick (31) – Federer should win, but he has had some trouble with Roddick in Miami.  X  Roger falls to Roddick? Well, it happened.

David Ferrer (5) vs. Julien Benneteau (30) – Ferrer is too steady.  C

Mardy Fish (8) vs. Kevin Anderson (28) – I am tempted to pick Anderson as Fish ha struggled lately, but I think Fish has a mini-resurgence before the clay season.  C

Juan Martin del Potro (11) vs. Marin Cilic (23) – JMDP wins in what looked like a promising rivalry circa 2009.  C

Nicolas Almagro (12) vs. Fernando Verdasco (20) – Good match, but Almagro is playing better in 2012.  C

Gael Monfils (14) vs. Juan Monaco (21) – This is a 50-50 type match, but I had picked a lot of favorites to this point so I went with Monaco in a coin flip.  C
