Predicted Winners in BOLD
Isner should win today, but his return game will dictate how far he advances
Jiri Vesely vs. Denis Kudla – This is a good chance for Kudla to get a valuable win.
Rogerio Dutra da Silva vs. Vasek Pospisil 4-6, 3-6, 7-6 (11-9), 4-0 suspended – Sticking with yesterday’s pick, but who knows with this match.
Jack Sock vs. Philipp Petzschner – Not a great day for the USTA even if Kudla wins.
Roger Federer (7) vs. Grega Zemlja – Roger rolls
Milos Raonic (10) vs. Thomas Fabbiano – His serve carries him.
Horacio Zeballos vs. Adrian Mannarino
Grigor Dimitrov (25) vs. Joao Sousa – A loss here from Dimitrov would stymie any momentum he gained from Cincinnati.
Albert Montanes vs. Edouard Roger-Vasselin
Jerzy Janowicz (14) vs. Maximo Gonzalez – If he plays like he did in Cincy, Jerzy could be gone early. With his draw, Jerzy could reach the semis of a 2nd consecutive major.
Tobias Kamke vs. Steve Johnson
John Isner (13) vs. Filippo Volandri – See Raonic, Milos.
Pablo Andujar vs. Thiemo De Bakker – This should be a close match.
Santiago Giraldo vs. Carlos Berlocq 3-6, 6-3, 7-6 (8-6), 2-1 suspended – Sticking with yesterday’s pick because I can’t rightfully switch.
Adrian Ungur vs. Gael Monfils – Who knows?
Julien Benneteau (31) vs. Michal Przysiezny – Tricky player advances
Benjamin Becker vs. Lukas Rosol – Based on Cincinnati, I’ll take Becker who is admirably still out there after his 2006 win over Agassi became a distant memory.
Tommy Haas (12) vs. Paul-Henri Mathieu – Not an easy match, but Haas is the pick.
Sam Querrey (26) vs. Guido Pella – Sam needs this.
Donald Young vs. Martin Klizan
Sergiy Stakhovsky vs. Jeremy Chardy
Lukasz Kubot vs. Jarkko Nieminen
Novak Djokovic (1) vs. Richard Berankis – Novak should win.
Yen-Hsun Lu vs. Daniel Gimeno-Traver
Juan Monaco (28) vs. Florian Mayer – This is a 50-50 match.
Nicolas Almagro (15) vs. Denis Istomin – A minor upset.
Tomas Berdych (5) vs. Paolo Lorenzi – The Czech won’t get bounced.
Philipp Kohlschreiber (22) vs. Collin Altamirano – Variety helps Kohls advance.
