Predicted Winners in BOLD
5 M. Sharapova vs. 26 S. Lisicki – This could be an excellent match, but I think it will underwhelm a bit and be a routine win.
I’m not expecting a repeat of this result or quality
10 C. Wozniacki vs. 18 A. Petkovic – Woz keeps rebuilding her ranking.
14 L. Safarova vs. 22 A. Cornet – This is hard to call. I think Safarova has a few more weapons though.
13 S. Errani vs. 19 V. Williams – MATCH OF THE DAY ALERT
6 A. Kerber vs. B. Bencic – Keep an eye on Kerber.
2 S. Halep vs. M. Lucic-Baroni – Halep will either win in a walk or grind out a win, but she’s going to win in my view.
9 J. Jankovic vs. J. Larsson – I am not convinced that JJ’s ranking is legit at this point.
28 R. Vinci vs. S. Peng – A mild upset.
