Predicted Winners in BOLD
 Andrea Petkovic (GER) vs  Karolina Pliskova (CZE) – I have been a bit slow to join the bandwagon. Still, Pliskova has a world class serve and is a talent to watch. I think her serve and overall talent are headed toward big things. Petkovic certainly can win and in some ways is a favorite in this match. However, I think at some point I need to nod toward the future.
 Carla Suárez Navarro (ESP) vs  Venus Williams (USA) – CSN’s first big win came down under vs. Venus Williams. I don’t see this as a repeat. Venus is playing quite well in 2015. If her health holds up, I think Venus wins this match in a fairly straightforward manner.
