Predicted Winners in BOLD
Angelique Kerber vs. Kirsten Flipkens – Kerber is by no means a lock, but perhaps her poor year is taking a turn for the better.
Karolina Pliskova vs. Magdalena Rybarikova – I like Pliskova as the favorite for the big plate at this stage of the event.
Caroline Wozniacki vs. Tsvetana Pironkova – Pironkova is dangerous on grass.
Svetlana Kuznetsova vs. Ekaterina Makarova – Doc vidanya Svetlana (my English phonetic approximation).
Agnieszka Radwanska vs. Christina McHale – I nearly picked McHale if that gives a sense of how much confidence I have in my pick.
Kristina Mladenovic vs. Alison Riske – Another crazy upset pick or is it actually quite possible?
Garbine Muguruza vs. Yanina Wickmayer
Timea Bacsinszky vs. Kristina Kucova
Coco Vandeweghe vs. Tatjana Maria – Can she recover her Aussie form?
Daria Kasatkina vs. Anett Kontaveit
Lucie Safarova vs. Shelby Rogers – Lefty power?
