Predicted Winners in BOLD
Venus won Miami in 1998: Hard to Fathom
Stadium (11 a.m. start)
 Angelique Kerber (GER) vs. Shelby Rogers (USA) – Kerber is too good to keep posting mediocre results.
 Venus Williams vs [Q] Patricia Maria Tig (ROU) – Venus’ 2017 Renaissance has been under reported.
 Simona Halep (ROU) vs. [Q] Anett Kontaveit (EST)
 Johanna Konta (GBR) vs. Pauline Parmentier (FRA) – This should be a fun and close match.
 Madison Keys (USA) vs. Lara Arruabarrena (USA)
 Svetlana Kuznetsova (RUS) vs. [Q] Taylor Townsend (USA) – This is a big test for Townsend.
Julia Goerges (GER) vs. [Q] Risa Ozaki (JPN) – Goerges is on a roll in Miami.
 Samantha Stosur (AUS) vs. Shuai Peng (CHN) – This is a 50-50 match, but I lean toward Shuai Peng slightly.
