Predicted Winners in BOLD
This is a great slate of matches
 Caroline Wozniacki (DEN) vs  Venus Williams (USA) – I like Wozniacki to win a close match.
 Serena Williams (USA) vs  Svetlana Kuznetsova (RUS) – Kuznetsova is just unpredictable enough to pull an upset, but I think Serena wins pretty easily. It is odd to think that these two have combined for 21 Grand Slam singles titles.
 Simona Halep (ROU) vs  Flavia Pennetta (ITA) – Halep will either need to serve steadily or be ready to scramble after hitting serves, but I think she eventually wears the zoning veteran down.
 Ekaterina Makarova (RUS) vs  Andrea Petkovic (GER) – The definition of a 50-50 match.
 Agnieszka Radwanska (POL) vs  Carla Suárez Navarro (ESP) – Radwanska seems to be struggling so I think an upset is likely.
 Karolina Pliskova (CZE) vs [WC] Daria Gavrilova (RUS) – She has come this far as a wild card.
 Sara Errani (ITA) vs  Sabine Lisicki (GER) – Lisicki seems to be playing quite well as of late.
Sloane Stephens (USA) vs Belinda Bencic (SUI) – I think the Swiss manages to fend off a tough challenge.
