Predicted Winners in BOLD
 Roberta Vinci (ITA) v  Coco Vandeweghe (USA) – Coco is playing at a high level on grass. It is not a huge reach to see her defeat Vinci.
 Serena Williams (USA) v Annika Beck (GER) – Serena had a scare and a fine last round. I don’t think Serena is invulnerable, but I do think she is the clear favorite to win this title. She is beatable, but someone obviously has to do it.
 Svetlana Kuznetsova (RUS) v  Sloane Stephens (USA) – I think Sloane has the higher ceiling and lower floor between these two in 2016. I’d like to think a high level of tennis is played and that would favor Sloane.
 Timea Bacsinszky (SUI) v  Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova (RUS) – This is another match that is hard to predict.
 Barbora Strycova (CZE) v Ekaterina Makarova (RUS) – Makarova winning would not be an upset in my mind, but the rankings and seedings beg to differ.
Elena Vesnina (RUS) v [Q] Julia Boserup (USA) -До свидания to the qualifier?
