Predicted Winners in BOLD
Court Philippe-Chatrier (11 a.m. start)
 Barbora Strycova (CZE) vs Alizé Cornet (FRA) – This is a tough match for me to call. I watched Cornet last summer in Cincinnati and was impressed. I think she can spring an upset of a sort in this match.
 Karolina Pliskova (CZE) vs Ekaterina Alexandrova (RUS) – I think Halep and Muguruza are receiving a lot of attention as favorites in this wide open event, but Pliskova could maybe advance quietly as clay would not seem to be her ideal surface. That quiet path to the second week may actually open the door for a title run.
 Simona Halep (ROU) vs Tatjana Maria (GER) – Halep is as well positioned as she could hope to be to take this crown.
 Anastasija Sevastova (LAT) vs Eugenie Bouchard (CAN) – I like Bouchard to make a little noise in this draw.
 Madison Keys (USA) vs [Q] Petra Martic (CRO) – The qualifier has a golden opportunity, but how much court time has she logged?
