Predicted Winners in BOLD
Andy Murray (2) vs. Marcel Granollers – This is not the easiest first match for Murray. Still, one has to pick the world #2.
Nikolay Davydenko vs. Pablo Andujar – Davydenko played well to beat Simon. Perhaps he is having a renaissance, but Andujar is a tough customer.
Vasek Pospisil vs. Radek Stepanek – Stepanek may find his way into the third round.
Stanislas Wawrinka (8) vs. Benoit Paire – Stan needs to get some momentum back, but Paire is not an ideal opponent for doing that.
Milos Raonic (11) vs. Mikhail Youzhny – Raonic got a much needed win, but Youzhny has been playing quite well as of late.
Tommy Haas (10) vs. Marinko Matosevic – Haas keeps every older fans hopes alive.
Jerzy Janowicz (15) vs. Frank Dancevic – Assuming Jerzy can block out the home crowd, I think he advances.
Tomas Berdych (5) vs. Alexandr Dolgopolov – Dolgopolov could win this match, but Berdych has to be favored.
Juan Martin del Potro (6) vs. Ivan Dodig – JMDP is on a role at the moment.
Rafael Nadal (4) vs. Jesse Levine – Rafa FTW
Fabio Fognini (13) vs. Ernests Gulbis – Along with the Berdych-Dolgopolov match, this is the most unpredictable and fun match of the day. The surface should favor Gulbis, but Fognini should be confident due to his hot streak.
David Ferrer (3) vs. Alex Bogomolov Jr. – Ferrer is an efficient if under appreciated player precisely because he wins matches such as this one without a lot of drama.
Filip Peliwo vs. Denis Istomin – This match has an unpredictable quality to it.
