Predicted Winners in BOLD
Victoria Azarenka (BLR)  vs. Yanina Wickmayer (BEL) – I don’t think this will be a completely straightforward win for Vika as Wickmayer is tough, but I think Vika wins.
Kateryna Bondarenko (UKR) vs. Simona Halep (ROU)  – This feels like a trap match to me, but I think Halep advances.
Petra Cetkovska (CZE) vs. Caroline Wozniacki (DEN)  – So long as Wozniacki is not worried about defending points, I think she advances in straight sets.
Evgeniya Rodina (RUS) vs. Samantha Stosur (AUS)  – Can Stosur enjoy a NY renaissance?
Petra Kvitova (CZE)  vs. Nicole Gibbs (USA) – If Petra handles the elements, she wins this match.
Sara Errani (ITA)  vs. Jelena Ostapenko (LAT) – Steady play wins the day?
Camila Giorgi (ITA) vs. Sabine Lisicki (GER)  – Sabine could easily find herself in the final 4 in NY.
Johanna Konta (GBR) vs. Garbine Muguruza (ESP)  – Too much game to lose here
Flavia Pennetta (ITA)  vs. Monica Niculescu (ROU) – Flavia is really hard to eliminate.
Mona Barthel (GER) vs. Olga Govortsova (BLR)
Kurumi Nara (JPN) vs. Shelby Rogers (USA) – Homecourt edge?
Lesia Tsurenko (UKR) vs. Varvara Lepchenko (USA)
Danka Kovinic (MNE) vs. Anna Karolina Schmiedlova (SVK) 
Karin Knapp (ITA) vs. Angelique Kerber (GER)  – These two dueled in Cincinnati in 2013. Kerber won then and is playing better now than she was then.
Barbora Strycova (CZE) vs. Qiang Wang (CHN) – I picked a lot of Czechs in round 1, and it did not turn out well. Well, I have not learned anything I guess.
