Roger Federer (SUI) vs.  Dominic Thiem (AUT) H2H – I like Roger Federer so long as his health holds up.
 Rafael Nadal (ESP) vs Nick Kyrgios (AUS) – On clay, I like Rafa, but if Kyrgios beats Rafa it would be quite interesting on many levels.
 Novak Djokovic (SRB) vs. Thomaz Bellucci (BRA) H2H – Nole should win.
 Kei Nishikori (JPN) vs.  Richard Gasquet (FRA) H2H – The way Kei has played lately makes him the favorite.
 David Ferrer (ESP) vs. [LL] Lucas Pouille (FRA) – I like Ferrer here.
 Tomas Berdych (CZE) vs.  David Goffin (BEL) H2H – If styles make fights, I don’t like this clash of styles for Goffin.
 Stan Wawrinka (SUI) vs. [PR] Juan Monaco (ARG) H2H – Stan should advance, but it will be a rugged match.
 Andy Murray (GBR) vs. Jérémy Chardy (FRA) H2H – If Andy returns well and gets to Chardy’s backhand, he wins. If Chardy can keep Andy off balance with power, an upset could occur.
