Predicted Winners in BOLD
Pouille deserves this highlight, but Monfils gets my nod
 Gael Monfils (FRA) vs  Lucas Pouille (FRA) – Gael has had a very strong hard court summer. Pouille has played some gritty tennis to win so many marathon matches including a marathon versus Rafa Nadal. If fatigue is not a factor, this could go either way. I have to think fatigue is a factor and believe that Monfils’ efficient 4 wins will pay dividends versus Pouille.
 Novak Djokovic (SRB) vs  Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (FRA) – If Novak’s arm is in good enough shape that he plays close to his normal tennis, he wins. I am not expecting Novak’s wrist to be 100%, but if it is where he needs it to be to be comfortable on court, Novak should win. If not, Tsonga is quite capable of upsetting the #1 seed and defending champion.
