Predicted Winners in BOLD
 Garbiñe Muguruza (ESP) vs. Madison Keys (USA) – Keys has played well in this event, and Muguruza has had some mystifying losses since last year’s Wimbledon championship match. Still, I think clay favors Muguruza, and her greater comfort on clay will likely be the difference in this match.
 Serena Williams (USA) vs Irina-Camelia Begu (ROU) – Serena could certainly use a win in Rome to propel her toward a defense of her Roland Garros title. Serena is looking for her first title in 2016. I think Serena will take care of business, but if she is error prone, Serena may fall.
