Predicted Winners in BOLD
CENTRE COURT (1 p.m. start)
 Andy Murray (GBR) vs [LL] Alexander Bublik (KAZ) – Murray’s grasp on #1 is not that tight. Anything short of a 3rd Wimbledon title will make him either a former #1 or a #1 with no major titles over the past 52 weeks.
 Stan Wawrinka (SUI) vs Daniil Medvedev (RUS) – Where is Stan’s mind after his one-sided drubbing in Paris?
 Rafael Nadal (ESP) vs John Millman (AUS) – Rafa’s form and confidence have me feeling like he is entering Wimbledon as he did from 2006-2011 in which he was a finalist 5 times. Moya’s input on Rafa’s serve also give Nadal a good shot at a deep run or 3rd title.
NO.2 COURT (11:30 a.m.)
 Marin Cilic (CRO) vs Philipp Kohlschreiber (GER) – This is a tough match to pick. Cilic played well in a tune-up and was a point away from the Wimbledon semifinal round last year. Still, Kohlschreiber can play on grass and can win this match.
 Nick Kyrgios (AUS) vs Pierre-Hugues Herbert (FRA) – Kyrgios is an enigma. Could he blast his way into contention?
 Ivo Karlovic (CRO) vs Aljaz Bedene (GBR) – I predict aces and tie breaks.
Benoit Paire (FRA) vs Rogerio Dutra Silva (BRA)
 Karen Khachanov (RUS) vs Andrey Kuznetsov (RUS) – A mild upset
Yen-Hsun Lu (TPE) vs [Q] Simone Bolelli (ITA) – I never get Lu’s matches right.
[PR] Jerzy Janowicz (POL) vs [WC] Denis Shapovalov (CAN) – Jerzy looked so strong in 2013 … nostalgia pick?
Julien Benneteau (FRA) vs [Q] Sergiy Stakhovsky (UKR)
Facundo Bagnis (ARG) vs Radu Albot (MDA)
 Sam Querrey (USA) vs Thomas Fabbiano (ITA) – Querrey has had some nice moments on grass including a title at Queen’s Club and an upset of Novak Djokovic.
Viktor Troicki (SRB) vs Florian Mayer (GER)
Dustin Brown (GER) vs Joao Sousa (POR) – Surfaces still impact tennis matches and sometimes in big ways.
 Lucas Pouille (FRA) vs Malek Jaziri (TUN)
 Roberto Bautista Agut (ESP) vs [PR] Andreas Haider-Maurer (AUT) – I could see an upset here.
[WC] Tommy Haas (GER) vs [Q] Ruben Bemelmans (BEL) – Not all nostalgia picks are crazy.
