Predicted Winners in BOLD
 Maria Sharapova (RUS) vs.  Angelique Kerber (GER) – I love Kerber’s fight although she could and should have handled the Roland Garros situation differently. I think Sharapova wins in 2.
 Petra Kvitova (CZE) vs. Barbora Zahlavova Strycova (CZE) – Czech battle
 Ekaterina Makarova vs.  Lucie Safarova (CZE) – A great opportunity exists for both players, but Makarova was impressive today so I will give her my nod.
 Simona Halep vs. Zarina Diyas (KAZ) – Halep should advance.
 Sabine Lisicki (GER) vs. Yaroslava Shvedova (KAZ) – Lisicki hoping for her Novotna/Bartoli moment on Saturday.
