Roberto Bautista-Agut vs. Teymuraz Gabashvili

Alexandr Dolgopolov (26) vs. Gastao Elias – Dolgopolov needs a decent result.

Milos Raonic (17) vs. Carlos Berlocq – Milos faces a tricky first round test.

Horacio Zeballos vs. Santiago Giraldo

Grega Zemlja vs. Michael Russell – The veteran has a chance to advance.

Leonardo Mayer vs. Aljaz Bedene Already in-progress

Grigor Dimitrov (29) vs. Simone Bolelli – Dimitrov has shown solid form as of late.

Blaz Kavcic vs. Jan-Lennard Struff Already in-progress

Kevin Anderson (27) vs. Olivier Rochus Already in-progress

Kei Nishikori (12) vs. Matthew Ebden

Daniel Brands vs. Daniel Gimeno-Traver – Brands could do some damage in the draw.

Andreas Haider-Maurer vs. Go Soeda – Go goes forward.

Jeremy Chardy (28) vs. Ryan Harrison – Harrison is struggling in 2013.

Guido Pella vs. Jesse Levine Already in-progress

Sam Querrey (21) vs. Bernard Tomic – This is an interesting match, but until Tomic gains some stability off the court, it is hard for me to see him winning many matches.

Juan Martin del Potro (8) vs. Albert Ramos – This could be an upset as JMDP has been hurt and is not a natural on grass.  Still, based on firepower alone JMDP is the favorite.

Gilles Simon (19) vs. Feliciano Lopez – This is another potential upset.

Wayne Odesnik vs. Jimmy Wang

Alex Kuznetsov vs. Igor Sijsling

Novak Djokovic (1) vs. Florian Mayer – This is not the best first round draw Nole could have gotten, but the world number one should win.

Tomas Berdych (7) vs. Martin Klizan – Berdych looks to avoid back-to-back first round losses in Grand Slam play.

Bobby Reynolds vs. Steve Johnson

Andreas Seppi (23) vs. Denis Istomin – I’ll pick a mild upset for this match.

Philipp Petzschner vs. Michal Przysiezny Already in-progress

Philipp Kohlschreiber (16) vs. Ivan Dodig Already in-progress

Michael Llodra vs. Jarkko Nieminen – Two tricky veterans square off in the first round.  I think Nieminen takes this match.

David Ferrer (4) vs. Martin Alund – Ferrer should advance.

Richard Gasquet (9) vs. Marcel Granollers – On other surfaces, I’d be tempted to pick the Spaniard, but I think on grass Gasquet wins.

Tommy Haas (13) vs. Dmitry Tursunov – Haas wins a battle of veterans.

James Blake vs. Thiemo De Bakker Already in-progress
