Predicted Winners in BOLD
This is a big day and a lot of great matches are there for tennis fans to watch
Milos Raonic (12) vs. Benjamin Becker – Becker could win if Milos is error probe, but the match is on the Canadian’s racquet.
Rafael Nadal (1) vs. Fabio Fognini (14) – Fognini could add some confidence for the clay court swing with a string showing here.
Novak Djokovic (2) vs. Tommy Robredo (16) – Robredo is a pros pro and does all the right things. He is just outgunned here. Nole can build a charge with back-to-back Masters 1000 tournament titles.
Stanislas Wawrinka (3) vs. Alexandr Dolgopolov (22) – Based on Indian Wells Dolgopolov might be a slight favorite. I think Wawrinka is more likely to win based on having more weapons.
David Ferrer (4) vs. Kei Nishikori (20) – I have to pick one upset today. Otherwise, I’d be taking Ferrer.
Roger Federer (5) vs. Richard Gasquet (9) – Federer should handle Gasquet in their current form. Still, it ought to be entertaining tennis.
Andy Murray (6) vs. Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (11) – Players always seem to do well in their first few events after making a coaching decision. Murray 2 weeks ago would have been an underdog in this match. Today at his home away from home, Murray is the slight favorite.
Tomas Berdych (7) vs. John Isner (10) – Berdych should hold nearly as easily as Isner. He has a better all-around game as well.
