Miami Open 2016: March 26th WTA and ATP Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD

[6] Kei Nishikori (JPN) vs. [Q] Pierre-Hugues Herbert (FRA) H2H – Kei is always interesting in early rounds as he can maul people or he can be pushed when least expected.

[3] Agnieszka Radwanska (POL) vs. Madison Brengle (USA)

[5] Rafael Nadal (ESP) vs. Damir Dzumhur (BIH) H2H – Rafa has never won Miami before, but he has a nice path to the final this year.

[1] Serena Williams (USA) vs. Zarina Diyas (KAZ) – Serena looked a little off of her game in her 1st match.  I think she will be more dialed in today.

[2] Andy Murray (GBR) vs. Denis Istomin (UZB) H2H – This is not an easy match, but Murray is supposed to win this type of match.

[12] Elina Svitolina (UKR) vs. [23] Caroline Wozniacki (DEN) The Wizard of Woz spends a lot of time in Florida, but barring some sort of home court effect, I can’t see her winning this match.

[8] Petra Kvitova (CZE) vs. [30] Ekaterina Makarova (RUS) – I enjoy watching both of these players a lot.  I feel like Kvitova’s spotty play makes her a slight underdog here.

[5] Stan Wawrinka (SUI) vs. Andrey Kuznetsov (RUS) H2H – Stan should win, but this should be close.

[26] Grigor Dimitrov (BUL) vs. Federico Delbonis (ARG) H2H – Delbonis has momentum, and Grigor does not.

[13] John Isner (USA) vs. [Q] Tim Smyczek (USA) H2H – I would not expect many service breaks, but Isner should win.

[9] Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (FRA) vs. Santiago Giraldo (COL) H2H – Jo-Wilfried will need to construct points well as this surface is a bit slower than he’d probably prefer, but he should win.

[12] Milos Raonic (CAN) vs. Denis Kudla (USA) H2H – If Milos is healthy, I like him to win, but Kudla will clip him if Raonic can’t move.

[22] Jack Sock (USA) vs. Sergiy Stakhovsky (UKR)  H2H – This surface should work well with Sock’s game.

[5] Simona Halep (ROU) vs. Julia Goerges (GER) – This is not an easy match, but Halep should win.

[24] Nick Kyrgios (AUS) vs. Marcos Baghdatis (CYP) H2H – Ticket holders should find a spot near the front row and enjoy.

[16] Ana Ivanovic (SRB) vs. [19] Timea Bacsinszky (SUI) 

[15] Svetlana Kuznetsova (RUS) vs. Caroline Garcia (FRA) – Would this be an upset?

[16] Gael Monfils (FRA) vs. [Q] Tatsuma Ito (JPN) H2H -I never quite know with Gael.

[30] Thomaz Bellucci (BRA) vs. [Q] Mikhail Kukushkin (KAZ) H2H – See above

[29] Sam Querrey (USA) vs. Adrian Mannarino (FRA) H2H 

[27] Alexandr Dolgopolov (UKR) vs. Andreas Seppi (ITA)  H2H – This match is a 50-50 match.

Yanina Wickmayer (BEL) vs. [WC] Heather Watson (GBR)

[23] Pablo Cuevas (URU) vs. John Millman (AUS) H2H

[17] Roberto Bautista Agut (ESP) vs. Aljaz Bedene (GBR) H2H – Agut is a fighter.
