Miami Open 2016: March 28 WTA and ATP Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD

[3] Agnieszka Radwanska (POL) vs. [19] Timea Bacsinszky (SUI) – Aga probably wins what should be an excellent match.

[1] Serena Williams (USA) vs. [15] Svetlana Kuznetsova (RUS) – “I know you have multiple slam titles, but I’ve got 21.”

[2] Andy Murray (GBR) vs. [26] Grigor Dimitrov (BUL) H2H – Grigor needs this win more than Andy, but sometimes one just might find one can’t always get what one needs either.

[16] Gael Monfils (FRA) vs. [23] Pablo Cuevas (URU) H2H – What the heck?  Pick Gael

[12] Milos Raonic (CAN) vs.  [22] Jack Sock (USA) H2H  – This should be fun, but if Milos is healthy, I think he advances.

[2] Angelique Kerber (GER) vs. Timea Babos (HUN) – Kerber has looked shaky since winning in Oz and becoming #2 (this is totally understandable), but I think this is winnable.

[6] Kei Nishikori (JPN) vs. [27] Alexandr Dolgopolov (UKR) H2H – Fun and unpredictable action.

[9] Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (FRA) vs. [17] Roberto Bautista Agut (ESP)  H2H – RBA will benefit from the surface speed.  I am not sure that will be enough.

[4] Garbiñe Muguruza (ESP) OR [13] Victoria Azarenka (BLR) – Vika is the most under-seeded player in either draw.  Bad news for Garbine

[24] Nick Kyrgios (AUS) vs. [Q] Tim Smyczek (USA) H2H – Kyrgios won’t wilt the way Isner did.

Damir Dzumhur (BIH) vs. [Q] Mikhail Kukushkin (KAZ) H2H – Making great use of his qualifying result

[5] Simona Halep (ROU) vs. [WC] Heather Watson (GBR) – 50-50 match?

Adrian Mannarino (FRA) vs. Andrey Kuznetsov (RUS) H2H – If I had tickets, I’d see this one from the front row.

[24] Johanna Konta (GBR) vs  [32] Monica Niculescu (ROU) – Konta is one of the bright stories of 2016.

[12] Elina Svitolina (UKR) vs. [30] Ekaterina Makarova (RUS) – Makarova didn’t play for 17 years vs. Wozniacki so she should have more in reserve.

[22] Madison Keys (USA) vs. Irina-Camelia Begu (ROU) – Keys is making nice progress thus far in Miami.
