Predicted Winners in BOLD
Sara Errani (ITA) vs. [WC] Aleksandra Wozniak (CAN) – I don’t think the Canadian wins this match.
Genie Bouchard (CAN) vs. Lucie Safarova (CZE) – Again, I think the home crowd will not see what it wants.
 Garbiñe Muguruza (ESP) vs. Naomi Broady (GBR) – The Roland Garros champion needs to build some equity before Rio and the US Open.
 Simona Halep (ROU) vs. Daria Gavrilova (AUS) – The Aussie could have had better luck in the draw than this. Halep should win.
Alizé Cornet (FRA) vs. Andrea Petkovic (GER) – Two of the more interesting players on the tour will face-off. I think Cornet has a bit more variety, but a little less grit than Petkovic so this is a 50-50 match. In French Canada, I might give a slight edge to Cornet.
 Madison Keys (USA) vs. Elena Vesnina (RUS) – This could be the match of the day. Both players are quite good, but Keys has had better results in 2016 despite Vesnina’s Wimbledon semifinal run.
 Johanna Konta (GBR) vs. Shelby Rogers (USA) – I like Konta so long as she is not worn out from her title win on Sunday and travel to Montreal from California.
[WC] Françoise Abanda (CAN) vs. [Q] Saisai Zheng (CHN) – I have to pick at least one Canadian don’t I? I actually think Zheng will win due to her qualifying matches making her match tough.
 Dominika Cibulkova (SVK) vs. [Q] Mariana Duque-Mariño (COL)
 Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova (RUS) vs. Yulia Putintseva (KAZ)
Kristina Mladenovic (FRA) vs. [Q] Alla Kudryavtseva (RUS)
Timea Babos (HUN) vs. [Q] Vania King (USA)
Shuai Zhang (CHN) vs. [LL] Christina McHale (USA) – McHale played so well at Wimbledon that I wish her ranking were high enough to skip qualifying rounds/lucky loser entries.
 Karolina Pliskova (CZE) vs. [Q] Kateryna Bondarenko (UKR) – This could be a fun match for those with tickets.
Daria Kasatkina (RUS) vs. Misaki Doi (JPN)
Monica Niculeascu (ROU) vs. Jelena Ostapenko (LAT)
Yanina Wickmayer (BEL) vs. [Q] Kristina Kucova (SVK) – Wickmayer is usually a pretty tough player to eliminate.
