Predicted Winners in BOLD
This tournament will be shaken up in the round of 16 and settle into some sort of pattern when the quarterfinal round emerges.
 Roger Federer (SUI) v Steve Johnson (USA) – Johnson could win this match. Federer however has to be happy with his path to the final 8.
 Andy Murray (GBR) v  Nick Kyrgios (AUS) – Andy needs to make sure Kyrgios doesn’t get a lead. If Murray can front run, I think he wins in 3 or 4 sets. If Murray falls behind, the pressure of being the highest seed remaining
 Richard Gasquet (FRA) v  Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (FRA) – What does Tsonga have left after a long match with Isner? Otherwise, each man has strengths that make advancing likely, but each has some weaknesses that make a loss likely.
 Kei Nishikori (JPN) v  Marin Cilic (CRO) – Kei has dominated their head-to-head. The exception was his 2014 loss to Cilic in a 3 of 5 set Grand Slam final. I think Cilic’s form at Queen’s Club and his overall power advantage help him advance.
 Milos Raonic (CAN) v  David Goffin (BEL) – Again, I take the bigger hitter versus a smaller baseline hugger who takes the ball early. If Milos takes care of his serve, he should be able to bully a few breaks out of Goffin and advance.
 Tomas Berdych (CZE) v Jiri Vesely (CZE) – Berdych typically wins the matches he is supposed to win. If Berdych gets a break or two of serve, he should beat Vesely.
 Bernard Tomic (AUS) v  Lucas Pouille (FRA) – Tomic seems to be on the rebound. I could see Pouille winning this match, but I think he is the underdog.
 Sam Querrey (USA) v Nicolas Mahut (FRA) – Querrey could have a letdown after the biggest win of his life. Mahut has a recent win over Querrey on grass. Mahut also won a title on grass in 2016. I think this points toward a 4 set Mahut victory.
