Predicted Winners in BOLD
Stadium (11 a.m. start)
 Simona Halep (ROU) vs. Naomi Osaka (JPN) – Halep’s post Rogers Cup results have not been great. This could be a good place to turn around recent trends.
 Angelique Kerber (GER) vs. Ying-Ying Duan (CHN) – Kerber should win, but I am not seeing the resolve and confidence from her that I saw from Wimbledon through the end of 2016.
 Venus Williams (USA) vs. [WC] Beatriz Haddad Maia (BRA) – Miami is a home for Venus.
 Madison Keys (USA) vs. Viktorija Golubic (SUI) – Keys should win.
 Svetlana Kuznetsova (RUS) vs. Mandy Minella (LUX) – Kuzy had a great Miami last year and is coming off an Indian Wells runner-up finish.
