Predicted Winners in BOLD

COURT RAINIER III (11 a.m. start)

[3] Stan Wawrinka (SUI) vs. Jiri Vesely (CZE) H2H – I think Stan will have a big clay court season in 2017.  A solid showing in Monte Carlo may be a good omen.

[1] Andy Murray (GBR) vs. Gilles Muller (LUX) H2H – The world #1 needs a win after an Indian Wells upset and missing Miami due to injury.

[4] Rafael Nadal (ESP) vs. Kyle Edmund (GBR) H2H – This could go 3 or at least have a close set, but I think Rafa wins.

[8] Grigor Dimitrov (BUL) vs. [Q] Jan-Lennard Struff (GER) H2H – Dimitrov’s hot start to 2017 is fading.  A strong start to his clay season could be a big help.


[9] Tomas Berdych (CZE) vs. [PR] Tommy Haas (GER) H2H – The plucky youngster Berdych ought to beat the German veteran.

[5] Marin Cilic (CRO) vs. [WC] Jérémy Chardy (FRA) H2H – Can Cilic succeed where Coric didn’t?

[11] Lucas Pouille (FRA) vs. Paolo Lorenzi (ITA) H2H

[12] Roberto Bautista Agut (ESP) vs. Diego Schwartzman (ARG) H2H – RBA is a sneaky good player especially on slower surfaces.


[6] Dominic Thiem (AUT) vs. Robin Haase (NED) H2H – Thiem has been at his best on clay.

[14] Alexander Zverev (GER) vs. Feliciano Lopez (ESP) H2H – I think veteran guile helps with a mild upset.


[13] Pablo Carreno Busta (ESP) vs. Karen Khachanov (RUS) H2H

[15] Albert Ramos-Vinolas (ESP) vs. [Q] Carlos Berlocq (ARG) H2H – A mild upset?
