Practice makes perfect?
Predicted Winners in BOLD
Donald Young (USA) vs. [Q] Ernesto Escobedo (USA) H2H – I think Young should win this match, but the qualifier should be match tough.
 Grigor Dimitrov (BUL) vs. Daniel Evans (GBR) – Dimitrov has become quite hard to predict in matches such as this. I think Dimitrov wins, but I have no confidence in that thought.
 Sam Querrey (USA) vs. Bjorn Fratangelo (USA) – I generally get Bjron’s matches wrong, but Querrey has to be the pick.
 Steve Johnson (USA) vs. Adrian Mannarino (FRA) – I think Mannarino’s late finish on Monday/early Tuesday morning bodes poorly for playing Johnson who had today off.
Stéphane Robert (FRA) vs. [Q] Ryan Harrison (USA) H2H – Harrison has had a rough year, but his qualifying wins could propel him past Robert.
Malek Jaziri (TUN) vs. [WC] Reilly Opelka (USA) H2H
 Benoit Paire (FRA) vs. [Q] Jared Donaldson (USA) – Paire should win, but Donaldson is riding a winning streak.
Sam Groth (AUS) vs. [PR] Brian Baker (USA) H2H – If Baker can break serve or play well in tiebreaks, he should be able to solve the riddle of the big serving Aussie.
 Alexandr Dolgopolov (UKR) vs. Jordan Thompson (AUS) – Dolgopolov is harder to predict than Dimitrov.
Yen-Hsun Lu (TPE) vs. Austin Krajicek (USA) H2H – I always get Lu wrong in early rounds so I am picking him to win for a change.
Lukas Lacko (SVK) vs. [WC] Denis Shapovalov (CAN) H2H – Will the youngster capitalize on his momentum from Wimbledon?
Ivan Dodig (CRO) vs. Yoshihito Nishioka (JPN) H2H – Dodig helped win the doubles point in Davis Cup last week for Croatia. Does that carry over?
