Predicted Winners in BOLD
 Petra Kvitova (CZE) vs. [Q] Elena Vesnina (RUS) – I would not be shocked to see an upset here. Nothing Petra does surprises me these days. She may dust the field or be bested by an unknown. Vesnina is a solid player and could very well send the defending champion packing, but I will pick Petra with caution.
 Victoria Azarenka (BLR) vs Alizé Cornet (FRA) – This is not the easiest draw for Vika, and clay is her worst surface. However, she should advance.
 Garbiñe Muguruza (ESP) vs. Irina-Camelia Begu (ROU) – Muguruza has done so little since Wimbledon 2015. Can she hit reset and make a move prior to Paris?
 Sloane Stephens (USA) vs. [Q] Patricia Maria Tig (ROU)
 Ana Ivanovic (SRB) vs [Q] Louisa Chirico (USA)
Madison Keys (USA) vs. Barbora Strycova (CZE) – Keys needs this, but this is no lock for her.
 Karolina Pliskova (CZE) vs. Christina McHale (USA) – McHale gives great effort and could pull the upset, but I think Pliskova advances.
 Elina Svitolina (UKR) vs. Daria Gavrilova (AUS) – I have to pick one upset right? I really have no idea on this match.
