Predicted Winners in BOLD
As we hit the round of 16 the number of good matches should increase
 Maria Sharapova (RUS) vs  Belinda Bencic (SUI) – I am tempted to take Bencic here, but I think Maria does enough to manufacture a tough 2 set win.
 Serena Williams (USA) vs. Margarita Gasparyan (RUS) – Serena has looked quite sharp despite not playing between September 2015 and the first round in Melbourne.
 Carla Suárez Navarro (ESP) vs. Daria Gavrilova (AUS) – This is a winnable match for Gavrilova who will have the crowd on her side.
 Agnieszka Radwanska (POL) vs. Anna-Lena Friedsam (GER) – Is Aga flying under the radar despite a 4th seed and tour championship to close out last season.
