Predicted Winners in BOLD
Daniel Evans (GBR) vs. Benjamin Becker (GER) H2H – Becker has been winning matches here and there since his 2006 win over Andre Agassi at the US Open.
Denis Kudla (USA) vs. John Millman (AUS) H2H – Kudla will need to take care of his serve to advance, but I think he will do just that.
Taylor Fritz (USA) vs. Dudi Sela (ISR) H2H – Taylor Fritiz has enough power to win this match.
Adrian Mannarino (FRA) vs. [WC] Frances Tiafoe (USA) H2H – Mannarino’s quarterfinal loss at Newport might have sped up his transition to hard courts.
Tim Smyczek (USA) vs. [Q] James Duckworth (AUS) H2H – Rafa wants Tim to win at least.
Vasek Pospisil (CAN) vs. Yuichi Sugita (JPN) H2H – Vasek has a lot of power, but he has not done much lately.
Bjorn Fratangelo (USA) vs. [Q] Alex Kuznetsov (USA) H2H – I have picked wrongly against Frantangelo that I better reverse that trend.
[Q] Vincent Millot (FRA) vs. [Q] Jared Donaldson (USA) H2H – Each man has a great opportunity to advance to the second round as a qualifier.
Victor Estrella Burgos (DOM) vs. Jordan Thompson (AUS) H2H
