Predicted Winners in BOLD
Eugenie Bouchard (CAN) vs. Jelena Jankovic (SRB) – I think JJ wins this match, but I’d prefer to be wrong.
 Serena Williams (USA) vs. Anna-Lena Friedsam (GER) – Serena will enter Paris as a bit of an enigma, but a strong showing in Rome may evaporate some of the mystery.
Daria Gavrilova (AUS) vs. Sabine Lisicki (GER) – If the Aussie returns well, I think she wins a tricky match.
 Carla Suárez Navarro (ESP) vs. Teliana Pereira (BRA)
 Svetlana Kuznetsova (RUS) vs. Caroline Garcia (FRA) – The veteran from Russia may be dangerous in Paris depending upon her draw and a little luck.
Samantha Stosur (AUS) vs. [Q] Alison Riske (USA) – Riske should be match tough even if Stosur has been playing well as of late.
Kristina Mladenovic (FRA) vs. Jelena Ostapenko (LAT)
Johanna Konta (GBR) vs. [Q] Johanna Larsson (SWE)
[Q] Christina McHale (USA) vs. [WC] Claudia Giovine (ITA) – McHale should be match tough and always gives a superb effort so I think she wins here.
 Timea Bacsinszky (SUI) vs. Yanina Wickmayer (BEL)
Timea Babos (HUN) vs. [Q] Kiki Bertens (NED)
Lesia Tsurenko (UKR) vs. [Q] Julia Goerges (GER) – I am placing some faith in qualifiers being match tough in my picks today.
Monica Niculescu (ROU) vs. [Q] Mariana Duque-Mariño (COL) – Romanians are the story of the 2016 clay season?
