Predicted Winners in BOLD
Sunday Rain has Produced Quite a Slate of Matches
 Maria Sharapova (RUS) vs  Lucie Safarova (CZE) – I will stick with my Sunday pick.
 Serena Williams (USA) vs Sloane Stephens (USA) – I like Serena to win, but I also think Sloane’s backhand down the line can cause problems on clay because opponents get wrong-footed expecting a crosscourt backhand rally. Still, I think Serena avenges Venus.
 Garbine Muguruza (ESP) vs  Flavia Pennetta (ITA) – I’ll stick with my Sunday pick as I think the match is on Garbine’s racquet. If the Spaniard plays clean tennis, she wins. If Muguruza sprays errors, Flavia likely advances.
 Petra Kvitova (CZE) vs  Timea Bacsinszky (SUI) – Petra’s play in Madrid is why I am bullish on her in Paris.
 Sara Errani (ITA) vs Julia Goerges (GER) – I have to pick at least one upset (don’t I?).
Andreea Mitu (ROU) vs Alison Van Uytvanck (BEL) – Both players have to be excited about their ranking coming out of Paris, but one of them will be more excited still.
