Predicted Winners in BOLD
STADIUM 1 (11 a.m. start)
 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (FRA) vs. Fabio Fognini (ITA) H2H – This could go either way, but Tsonga has a lot of good results in 2017 so he is clearly favored.
 Stan Wawrinka (SUI) vs. Paolo Lorenzi (ITA) H2H – Stan could win this event due to a nice draw and a surface that may mesh well with his game.
 Andy Murray (GBR) vs. [Q] Vasek Pospisil (CAN) H2H – Murray rolls
 Dominic Thiem (AUT) vs. Jérémy Chardy (FRA) H2H – Chardy’s blunt power could spring an upset, but I think Thiem can get to Chardy’s backhand and unravel the big hitter’s game.
 John Isner (USA) vs. [LL] Mikhail Kukushkin (KAZ) H2H – I foresee tiebreakers.
 Tomas Berdych (CZE) vs. [WC] Bjorn Fratangelo (USA) H2H
 Ivo Karlovic (CRO) vs. [LL] Yoshihito Nishioka (JPN) H2H – Ivo’s big 2016 campaign gives hope to older players. Given the trend toward “small ball” in the NBA and Ivo’s longevity one might think big guys are better off playing tennis.
 Philipp Kohlschreiber (GER) vs. Alexandr Dolgopolov (UKR) H2H – Steady vs. unpredictable
 Gaël Monfils (FRA) vs. [Q] Darian King (BAR) H2H
 David Goffin (BEL) vs. Karen Khachanov (RUS) H2H
 Pablo Cuevas (URU) vs. Martin Klizan (SVK) H2H – Cuevas will need to make a surface adjustment, but he has momentum.
 Feliciano Lopez (ESP) vs. [Q] Dusan Lajovic (SRB) H2H – Lopez could use some wins.
 Roberto Bautista Agut (ESP) vs. Adrian Mannarino (FRA) H2H – I like Bautista Agut’s game a lot.
 Pablo Carreño Busta (ESP) vs. [Q] Peter Gojowczyk (GER) H2H
 Mischa Zverev (GER) vs. Joao Sousa (POR) H2H
 Albert Ramos-Vinolas (ESP) vs. Damir Dzumhur (BIH) H2H – I picked a lot of chalk today.
