Predicted Winners in BOLD
I am predicting a shorter stay for Nishikori than what he had at Miami 2016
Stadium (11 a.m. start)
 Kei Nishikori (JPN) vs.  Fernando Verdasco (ESP) H2H – A gut feeling leads me to pick an upset.
 Rafael Nadal (ESP) vs.  Philipp Kohlschreiber (GER) H2H – Kohlschreiber will compete, but I do not think Nadal will yield.
 Jack Sock (USA) vs. Jiri Vesely (CZE) H2H – Sock is playing the best tennis of his career.
 Milos Raonic (CAN) vs. [Q] Jared Donaldson (USA) H2H – Milos’ health is something to monitor in Miami.
Benoit Paire (FRA) vs. Donald Young (USA) H2H – Young is also enjoying some of the best tennis of his career.
Federico Delbonis (ARG) vs. Jan-Lennard Struff (GER) H2H
Nicolas Mahut (FRA) vs. Guido Pella (ARG) H2H – Mahut will fight.
Fabio Fognini (ITA) vs. Jérémy Chardy (FRA) H2H – 50-50 match, but a gut feeling leans toward Fognini.
