Predicted Winners in BOLD
Philippe-Chatrier Court (11 a.m. start)
Alexander Zverev (GER) vs. Fernando Verdasco (ESP) 46 63 – to be completed – Sticking to my original pick.
 Andy Murray (GBR) vs. Andrey Kuznetsov (RUS) – The weight of the number one ranking has been heavy for Andy Murray.
 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (FRA) vs. Renzo Olivo (ARG)
 Stan Wawrinka (SUI) vs [Q] Jozef Kovalik (SVK) – Did Stan recapture his Melbourne and Indian Wells form last week in Geneva?
 Gaël Monfils (FRA) vs Dustin Brown (GER) – On grass, I’d be tempted to pick an upset.
 Kei Nishikori (JPN) vs [PR] Thanasi Kokkinakis (AUS) – Kei should win, but I’m not 100% about this one.
 Tomas Berdych (CZE) vs Jan-Lennard Struff (GER) – Berdych’s perennial top 10 status seems to be over, but he should win this match.
