Predicted Winners in BOLD
 Petra Kvitova (CZE) vs. Cagla Buyukakcay (TUR) – I think Petra is good for this round as well.
 Svetlana Kuznetsova (RUS) vs Caroline Wozniacki (DEN) – Which career would you prefer? Kuznetsova has won 2 majors in singles while Wozniacki spent many weeks ranked #1 with no major titles. I’d pick Kuznetsova’s career. I am also picking her to win a fun match.
 Garbiñe Muguruza (ESP) vs Anastasija Sevastova (LAT) – Muguruza has a good opportunity to put some spotty post-Roland Garros play behind her.
 Roberta Vinci (ITA) vs. Christina McHale (USA) – So long as Vinci’s variety doesn’t throw McHale off too much, I think this is a very attainable win for McHale.
 Angelique Kerber (GER) vs Mirjana Lucic-Baroni (CRO) – Lucic-Baroni has driven Halep crazy at times. The veteran will need to pressure Kerber’s serve to make this a match. This seems doable so I expect a close 2 or 3 set battle, but I still like Kerber.
Shelby Rogers (USA) vs. [Q] Catherine Bellis (USA)
 Madison Keys (USA) vs. [WC] Kayla Day (USA) – Keys will need to be sharp, but she should advance.
Yulia Putintseva (KAZ) vs. Carina Witthoeft (GER)
 Dominika Cibulkova (SVK) vs Evgeniya Rodina (RUS) – Cibulkova’s tenacious play should result in a solid US Open run.
Monica Niculescu (ROU) vs. [Q] Ana Bogdan (ROU) – The battle of Romania
Lesia Tsurenko (UKR) vs. [Q] Yafan Wang (CHN)
 Johanna Konta (GBR) vs. Tsvetana Pironkova (BUL) – I think Pironkova will make this a match, but Konta is a player who could sneak into the final 8 or final 4 even.
Saisai Zheng (CHN) vs. Kateryna Bondarenko (UKR)
 Belinda Bencic (SUI) vs Andrea Petkovic (GER) – This will be a fun match. If I had tickets, I would find a good seat and enjoy.
 Elina Svitolina (UKR) vs Lauren Davis (USA)
[Q] Ying-Ying Duan (CHN) vs. [Q] Naomi Osaka (JPN)
