Predicted Winners in BOLD
 Tomas Berdych (CZE) vs. Sergiy Stakhovsky (UKR) H2H – Berdych has been a model of consistency despite not challenging the top tier all that often.
 David Ferrer (ESP) vs. llya Marchenko(UKR) H2H – I like Ferrer here.
 Rafael Nadal (ESP) vs. Pablo Carreno Busta (ESP) H2H – Uncle Toni is predicting a big 2016 from Rafa. This is the first real step toward fulfilling that prediction.
Fernando Verdasco (ESP) vs. [WC] Malek Jaziri (TUN) H2H – The shotmaking Spaniard should advance.
Teymuraz Gabashvili (RUS) vs. Simone Bolelli (ITA) H2H – This should be a fun match to watch in person.
 Leonardo Mayer (ARG) vs. [Q] Benjamin Becker (GER) H2H – Becker is still plugging away on tour, but I don’t think he wins this match.
Albert Ramos-Vinolas (ESP) vs. Paul-Henri Mathieu (FRA) H2H – I have to pick against one Spaniard (Busta is playing Rafa so that doesn’t count).
 Andreas Seppi (ITA) vs. Ricardas Berankis (LTU) H2H
Pablo Andujar (ESP) vs. Paolo Lorenzi (ITA) H2H
 David Goffin (BEL) vs. Thomaz Bellucci (BRA) H2H – This should be fun, but Goffin is the far more steady performer of the two.
 Dominic Thiem (AUT) vs. [WC] James Duckworth (AUS) H2H – Thiem could push his standing in the game upward in 2016.
 Bernard Tomic (AUS) vs. Nicolas Mahut (FRA) H2H – I love Mahut, but I don’t see this going his way.
Viktor Troicki (SRB) vs. Steve Johnson (USA) H2H – The NCAA folkhero wins.
[Q] Ivan Dodig (CRO) vs. [Q] Oliver Anderson (AUS) H2H – Both should be match tough from qualifying.
Lucas Pouille (FRA) vs. [Q] Yoshihito Nishioka (JPN) H2H
Denis Istomin (UZB) vs. Mikhail Kukushkin (KAZ) H2H
[Q] Somdev Devvarman (IND) vs. [WC] Andrey Rublev (RUS) H2H – This should be an interesting match.
Daniel Gimeno-Traver (ESP) vs. [WC] Ramkumar Ramanathan (IND) H2H – Most of the Spaniards are in Qatar, but this draw might do DGT some good.
 Guillermo Garcia-Lopez (ESP) vs. Taro Daniel (JPN) H2H
Lukas Rosol (CZE) vs. Santiago Giraldo (COL) H2H – Does everybody hate Lukas?
 Gilles Muller (LUX) vs. [WC] Karen Khachanov (RUS) H2H
 Vasek Pospisil (CAN) vs. Aljaz Bedene (GBR) H2H – I like Pospisil’s power game in this match.
Austin Krajicek (USA) vs. Rajeev Ram (USA) H2H – The USTA will be watching this one, but I think Ram’s experience helps him.
Jan-Lennard Struff (GER) vs. Luca Vanni (ITA) H2H
[Q] Thomas Fabbiano (ITA) vs. [Q] Jozef Kovalik (SVK) H2H
