[2] Simona Halep (ROU) vs Marina Erakovic (NZL) – Simona is in a great spot to make a run after back-to-back strong showings in Toronto and Cincinnati.

[4] Caroline Wozniacki (DEN) vs [WC] Jamie Loeb (USA) – Caro is looking for her 2014 form.

[5] Petra Kvitova (CZE) vs. Laura Siegemund (GER) – I like Petra to reach the second week despite a poor track record in NY.

[11] Angelique Kerber (GER) vs Alexandra Dulgheru (ROU) – Kerber has been potent in smaller events in 2015.  Can she reach the final 8 or further?
