Predicted Winners in BOLD
Stadium (11 a.m. start)
 Kei Nishikori (JPN) vs. Kevin Anderson (RSA) H2H – I like Nishikori to win, but if Anderson can push Nishikori off of the baseline, an upset can happen.
 Rafael Nadal (ESP) vs. Dudi Sela (ISR) H2H – Rafa rolls
 Grigor Dimitrov (BUL) vs. Guido Pella (ARG) H2H – Dimitrov should win this match, but I don’t see it as a completely straightforward win.
 Milos Raonic (CAN) vs. Viktor Troicki (SRB) H2H – Doc vidanya, eh?
 Steve Johnson (USA) vs. Nicolas Mahut (FRA) H2H – These two workmanlike performers will fight like hell for this win.
 Jack Sock (USA) vs. Yoshihito Nishioka (JPN) H2H – Momentum vs. Momentum: Something has to Give
 Fernando Verdasco (ESP) vs. [Q] Ernesto Escobedo (USA) H2H –
 Marin Cilic (CRO) vs. Jérémy Chardy (FRA) H2H – Mirror images of a sort
 Pablo Carreno Busta (ESP) vs. Federico Delbonis (ARG) H2H – This seems like a 50-50 match.
 Lucas Pouille (FRA) vs. Donald Young (USA) H2H – This should be a fun match due to their shot-making skills.
 Philipp Kohlschreiber (GER) vs. Taylor Fritz (USA) H2H – Youth Movement?
 Mischa Zverev (GER) vs. [Q] Jared Donaldson (USA) H2H – See above
 Joao Sousa (POR) vs. Fabio Fognini (ITA) H2H – Fognini is like a bad penny and sticks around for another round.
 Pablo Cuevas (URU) vs. Benoit Paire (FRA) H2H
 Albert Ramos-Viñolas (ESP) vs. Jiri Vesely (CZE) H2H – 50-50
 Gilles Simon (FRA) vs. Jan-Lennard Struff (GER) H2H – Gilles is still out there making life miserable for someone on the other side of the net.
