Miami Open 2016: March 25 WTA and ATP Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD

[2] Angelique Kerber (GER) vs. Barbora Strycova (CZE) – Kerber is allowed a post-Slam hangover, but I think she will be back in the mix sooner rather than later.

[8] David Ferrer (ESP) vs. [Q] Taylor Fritz (USA) H2H  – Unlikely, but I have a feeling.

[3] Roger Federer (SUI) vs. [PR] Juan Martin Del Potro (ARG) H2H -This one is hard to predict, but I think Roger will be anxious to be back on court.

[10] Venus Williams (USA) vs. [Q] Elena Vesnina (RUS) – Venus may be inspired due to playing in Miami, but her recent results have not been great.  Vesina having to qualify and play in the 1st round means she is match tough as well.

[1] Novak Djokovic (SRB) vs. Kyle Edmund (GBR) H2H – Novak has 27 Masters 1000 titles to share the all-time lead with Rafa.  My guess is Novak doesn’t want to share.

[13] Victoria Azarenka (BLR) vs. Monica Puig (PUR)  – This should be fun, but I think Vika has too much game to lose here.

[7] Tomas Berdych (CZE) vs. Rajeev Ram (USA) H2H – If Ram can take care of his service games, he might have a look at an upset, but I think the Big Czech advances.

[4] Garbiñe Muguruza (ESP) vs. Dominika Cibulkova (SVK) -Muguruza seems to be in a strange head space.  

[28] Jeremy Chardy (FRA) vs. Fernando Verdasco (ESP) H2H – Hot sauce winning would hardly be an upset.

[31] Steve Johnson (USA) vs. Alexander Zverev (GER) H2H – I love Steve Johnson, but this is a tough draw for him.

[10] Richard Gasquet (FRA) vs. Albert Ramos-Vinolas (ESP) H2H – Gasuqet should win, but I am never sure about him.

[14] Dominic Thiem (AUT) vs.Sam Groth  (AUS) H2H – Thiem has had a nice 2016 to this point.

[21] Feliciano Lopez (ESP) vs. [Q] Yoshihito Nishioka (JPN) H2H

[6] Carla Suárez Navarro (ESP) vs. CoCo Vandeweghe (USA)

[33] Joao Sousa (POR) vs. Vasek Pospisil (CAN) H2H – I think the surface speed helps Sousa a lot here.

[24] Johanna Konta (GBR) vs. Danka Kovinic (MNE) 

[11] Marin Cilic (CRO) vs. Dusan Lajovic (SRB) H2H

[27] Kristina Mladenovic (FRA) vs. [WC] Nicole Gibbs (USA)

[15] David Goffin (BEL) vs. [Q] Marcel Granollers (ESP) H2H – Goffin had a great Indian Wells event, but this match could go either way.

[22] Madison Keys (USA) vs. Kirsten Flipkens (BEL)

[17] Karolina Pliskova (CZE) vs. Timea Babos (HUN)

[18] Gilles Simon (FRA) vs. Juan Monaco (ARG) H2H

[20] Benoit Paire (FRA) vs. Mikhail Youzhny (RUS)  H2H

[7] Belinda Bencic (SUI) vs. [Q] Kristyna Pliskova (CZE) – Can the Swiss Miss 2.0 beat one of the Czech Armada?

[32] Guillermo Garcia-Lopez (ESP) vs. Lucas Pouille (FRA) H2H

[14] Sara Errani (ITA) vs. [WC] Naomi Osaka (JPN)

[29] Sabine Lisicki (GER) vs. Irina-Camelia Begu (ROU)

[19] Viktor Troicki (SRB) vs. Inigo Cervantes (ESP) H2H

[25] Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova (RUS) vs. [Q] Kiki Bertens (NED)

[18] Jelena Jankovic (SRB) vs. [Q] Magda Linette (POL) – JJ is like a bad penny.  She never goes away.

[32] Monica Niculescu (ROU) vs. Shuai Peng (CHN)

[9] Roberta Vinci (ITA) vs. Lucie Hradecka (CZE)
