Julia Boserup (USA) vs. Petra Kvitova (CZE)  – I fully admit that my heart is picking this win. I hope she has a full return to tennis.
Angelique Kerber (GER) vs. Ekaterina Makarova (RUS) – This is an awful draw for both players. Kerber is struggling as the world #1 after her awesome 2016 and strong 2015 results. I think she wins, but it is a 55-45% type split as Makarova can play and the crowd will pull for an upset.
Christina McHale (USA) vs. Svetlana Kuznetsova (RUS)  – This one is another tough draw for both players. Kuznetsova has been really strong in 2017 and clay is probably her best surface.
Venus Williams (USA) vs. Qiang Wang (CHN) – If this match were not on clay, I’d feel much better about Venus’ chances.
