Predicted Winners in BOLD
A Big Slate of Matches Today
 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (FRA) vs Tim Smyczek (USA) – Jo’s comeback gets a boost.
 Grigor Dimitrov (BUL) vs Vasek Pospisil (CAN) – Dimitrov seems to be struggling to me where Pospisil has momentum in singles and doubles.
 Novak Djokovic (SRB) vs Martin Klizan (SVK) – This should be fun, but Nole should win.
 Kei Nishikori (JPN) vs Mikhail Youzhny (RUS) – Kei needs to reclaim some lost momentum.
 John Isner (USA) vs [WC] Andrey Rublev (RUS) – Isner needs some momentum and needs to take advantage of this draw.
 Milos Raonic (CAN) vs Teymuraz Gabashvili (RUS)
 Pablo Cuevas (URU) vs Thomaz Bellucci (BRA) – Who owns South America?
 Gilles Simon (FRA) vs Mikhail Kukushkin (KAZ) – This is a 50-50 match, but Simon’s steadiness gives him my nod.
 Fabio Fognini (ITA) vs Jack Sock (USA) – Once again, either of these two can meltdown.
 David Ferrer (ESP) vs Federico Delbonis (ARG) – Ferrer has been taking names in 2015.
 Tommy Robredo (ESP) vs Alexandr Dolgopolov (UKR) – Mr. steady and great preparation vs. a totally unpredictable youngster – I have no idea.
 Gael Monfils (FRA) vs [Q] Filip Krajinovic (SRB)
 Jérémy Chardy (FRA) vs Jurgen Melzer (AUT) – Tuna Melzer wins.
 David Goffin (BEL) vs Borna Coric (CRO) – This is the match I would want to watch if I had tickets. Goffin is the world’s best 16-and-under player (I jest). Coric has a great deal of power/talent, and Goffin is a tremendous counter-puncher. In this spot, I will pick Goffin, but in 18 months I would take Coric.
 Lukas Rosol (CZE) vs [Q] Alexander Zverev (GER)
 Fernando Verdasco (ESP) vs [Q] James Duckworth (AUS)
 Ivo Karlovic (CRO) vs [Q] Alejandro Falla (COL) – “I didn’t spend 4 years in evil medical school to be called mister,” said Dr. Ivo.
 Gilles Muller (LUX) vs [Q] Steve Darcis (BEL)
 Adrian Mannarino (FRA) vs Albert Ramos-Vinolas (ESP)
 Ernests Gulbis (LAT) vs Juan Monaco (ARG) – Monaco plays too hard and is too steady for Gulbis.
 Viktor Troicki (SRB) vs Simone Bolelli (ITA)
 Roberto Bautista Agut (ESP) vs Jerzy Janowicz (POL) – Jerzy can always go either way.
