Predicted Winners in BOLD
 Petra Kvitova (CZE) vs CoCo Vandeweghe (USA) – I am tempted to call an upset here. Kvitova’s health is a mystery. Still, I think Kvitova is slightly favored here as her talent is undeniable.
 Maria Sharapova (RUS) vs [Q] Mariana Duque-Mariño (COL) – Maria is heavily favored here.
 Carla Suárez Navarro (ESP) vs [Q] Julia Goerges (GER) – I’d love to watch this match from the stands as both players can reach a high level. This could be a great match.
Victoria Azarenka (BLR) vs Ajla Tomljanovic (CRO) – Vika is not overly fond of dirt, but I think she advances.
Barbora Strycova (CZE) vs Varvara Lepchenko (USA) – I think a letdown is due.
 Karolina Pliskova (CZE) vs Caroline Garcia (FRA)
 Ana Ivanovic (SRB) vs Elina Svitolina (UKR)
 Sara Errani (ITA) vs Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova (RUS) – This is a bold pick, but I think power will be the difference here.
