Djokovic is Holding Court Again
Predicted Winners in BOLD
 Kei Nishikori (JPN) vs. [Q] Dennis Novikov (USA) H2H – Kei should win if he is healthy.
 Novak Djokovic (SRB) vs. Gilles Muller (LUX) H2H – Some questions are floating around regarding Novak’s right shoulder and/or elbow. If he is hampered when serving, this match could become more complicated.
 Milos Raonic (CAN) vs. Yen-Hsun Lu (TPE) H2H – I like Milos to reach at least the semifinal round in Toronto this year.
Grigor Dimitrov (BUL) vs. [WC] Denis Shapovalov (CAN) H2H – The young man has a great chance to upset Dimitrov and advance.
 John Isner (USA) vs. [Q] Ryan Harrison (USA) H2H – I like Isner as he has more or less been the US #1 and Harrison may be tired from his exploits in DC and Toronto. Still, Harrison seems to be rebounding on tour and is heading toward the top 75.
 Dominic Thiem (AUT) vs. Kevin Anderson (RSA) H2H – If Thiem can break serve once or twice he should win this match as Anderson’s serve is the only area of competitive disadvantage for Thiem.
 Marin Cilic (CRO) vs. Ivo Karlovic (CRO) H2H – This should be fun for the Croatian contingent. I expect several tiebreak sets.
 Gael Monfils (FRA) vs. Vasek Pospisil (CAN) H2H – Pospisil’s serve makes him dangerous, but Monfils is playing quite well and should win.
[Q] Radek Stepanek (CZE) vs. [WC] Peter Polansky (CAN) H2H – The worm should win this match.
 Bernard Tomic (AUS) vs. [WC] Steven Diez (CAN) H2H – Tomic has the talent to be a factor in many events. Can he make good on his talent?
 Jack Sock (USA) vs. Donald Young (USA) H2H – Young being a lefty will help him in terms of directing rallies either away from the Sock forehand or pulling Sock out of comfortable rallying positions and patterns.
 Lucas Pouille (FRA) vs. Rajeev Ram (USA) H2H – The pride of Indiana wins again?
 David Goffin (BEL) vs. Sam Querrey (USA) H2H – Querrey’s serve and forehand give him at least a puncher’s chance, but Goffin should prevail.
Fabio Fognini (ITA) vs. [Q] Jared Donaldson (USA) H2H – Fabio should win this match.
