Predicted Winners in BOLD
 Kei Nishikori (JPN) vs. Fabio Fognini (ITA) H2H – I am bullish on Fognini in Miami even if it makes no sense. Nishikori is playing well enough to win and perhaps win easily. Still, I think Fognini’s shot-making ability gives him a puncher’s chance.
My Prediction: Fognini d. Nishikori 6-4, 2-6, 6-3
 Rafael Nadal (ESP) vs  Jack Sock (USA) – Sock may win the RPM battle on the forehand, but to win the match Sock will have to be on his game in a big way. If Sock doesn’t dictate play with his serve, he is in trouble.
My Prediction: Nadal d. Sock 7-5, 6-2
