Arthur Ashe Stadium (11 a.m. start)
Paolo Lorenzi (ITA) vs. Andy Murray (GBR)  – I like Murray in this match for a lot of reasons.
Nick Kyrgios (AUS) vs. Illya Marchenko (UKR) – Can the conqueror of Atlanta with nuclear power harness his gifts to win this match? I am leaning toward yes, but Kyrgios is often hard to predict.
Louis Armstrong Stadium
 David Ferrer (ESP) vs [WC] Juan Martin del Potro (ARG) – Delpo looks like a top 10 player at the moment. Ferrer can perhaps win if he gets to JMDP’s backhand via effective patterns, but how David expended a lot of energy in his last win.
 Dominic Thiem (AUT) vs. Pablo Carreno Busta (ESP) – Busta has a lot of momentum at the moment. Thiem has worked his way into this draw and certainly can win this match, but I am going with the hot hand.
 Kei Nishikori (JPN) vs. Nicolas Mahut (FRA) – If Kei returns well, this match could be pretty one-sided.
 Grigor Dimitrov (BUL) vs Joao Sousa (POR) – This match is a real test for the rebounding Dimitrov. He should win, but if he plays like he did from January through July, he won’t win.
 Ivo Karlovic (CRO) vs. [Q] Jared Donaldson (USA) – Ivo’s two summer titles plus his DC runner-up finish have me believing in his chances today.
