After going out of town for a day, my predictions are back.
Predicted Winners in BOLD
STADIUM 1 (11 a.m. start)
 Rafael Nadal (ESP) vs.  Fernando Verdasco (ESP) H2H – Verdasco has the tools to win on a hardcourt versus Rafa. I don’t expect that to happen though.
 Roger Federer (SUI) vs.  Steve Johnson (USA) H2H – Federer should win and set up an Australian Open rematch.
 Novak Djokovic (SRB) vs.  Juan Martin del Potro (ARG) H2H – They played a close match in Acapulco. I think Djokovic again wins in a tight match.
 Kei Nishikori (JPN) vs.  Gilles Muller (LUX) H2H – Nichikori’s return of serve should undermine Muller’s game enough to win in 2 sets.
 Nick Kyrgios (AUS) vs.  Alexander Zverev (GER) H2H – Take cover.
 Grigor Dimitrov (BUL) vs.  Jack Sock (USA) H2H – Dimitrov’s early season surge warrants a lot of attention at Indian Wells. Could he do what Jim Courier did in 1991 and use Indian Wells as a major spring board?
 Lucas Pouille (FRA) vs. Donald Young (USA) H2H
[WC] Taylor Fritz (USA) vs. Malek Jaziri (TUN) H2H – I keep picking Jaziri’s opponents and keep being wrong. Why mess with a good thing?
