Predicted Winners in BOLD
 Simona Halep (ROU) vs.  Svetlana Kuznetsova (RUS) – I like Halep in this match due to her mobility and tenacity. Still, Kuzy is a veteran with a big forehand who just posted another nice win in 2016 in beating Petra Kvitova.
 Angelique Kerber (GER) vs. Daria Kasatkina (RUS) – Kerber had to battle through against Vesnina, but I think she is a solid favorite in this match due to her scrambling and lefty shot-making.
 Madison Keys (USA) vs.  Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova (RUS) – I haven’t picked any of the Russian players to win. That might be an oversight on my part, but I think Madison Keys has a lot of momentum after beating Venus.
 Johanna Konta (GBR) vs. [Q] Kristina Kucova (SVK) – Konta leads the US Open Series standings after winning a title last week in California.
