Predicted Winners in BOLD
 Marin Cilic (CRO) vs.  Albert Ramos-Vinolas (ESP) H2H – Cilic is having his first good event since Acapulco. Ramos-Vinolas just upset the world #1 and is due for a letdown. I think Cilic wins in a fairly straightforward manner.
 Novak Djokovic (SRB) vs.  David Goffin (BEL) H2H – Goffin certainly can win this match. Novak Djokovic has needed 3 sets in each of his first two matches. Still, Novak is favored. I think Novak may be one spark away from a mini-roll. If Novak were to build toward a successful repeat in Paris, a lot of the past 52 weeks would recede into irrelevancy.
