Predicted Winners in BOLD
Three Former Champions in Action
Roger Federer (SUI)  vs. Mikhail Youzhny (RUS) – Federer needs to play better than he did in the first round to go far in this event, but as a professional he has never struggled with Youzhny so his form may not need to be much better to advance to the 3rd round.
Rafael Nadal (ESP)  vs. Taro Daniel (JPN) – Looking at the draw and the state of many players, I think the champion will either be Nadal or someone totally unexpected.
Andrey Rublev (RUS) vs. Grigor Dimitrov (BUL)  – Dimitrov won his first Masters 1000 title in the Queen City. Can he win his first major in Flushing Queens?
Taylor Fritz (USA) vs. Dominic Thiem (AUT) 
Adrian Menendez-Maceiras (ESP) vs. Juan Martin del Potro (ARG)  – JMDP could adopt a survive and advance mentality and contend for a second major title despite having a questionable left wrist.
Donald Young (USA) vs. Gael Monfils (FRA)  – I like Gael in this match.
Alexandr Dolgopolov (UKR) vs. Tomas Berdych (CZE)  – A player who has been steady since the mid 2000s versus a player who is unpredictable.
Adrian Mannarino (FRA)  vs. Bjorn Fratangelo (USA)
Malek Jaziri (TUN) vs. John Millman (AUS)
David Goffin (BEL)  vs. Guido Pella (ARG)
Stefano Travaglia (ITA) vs. Viktor Troicki (SRB)
Philipp Kohlschreiber (GER)  vs. Santiago Giraldo (COL)
Fernando Verdasco (ESP) vs. Feliciano Lopez (ESP)  – Lefty battle y Guerra Civil
Yuichi Sugita (JPN) vs. Leonardo Mayer (ARG)
Damir Dzumhur (BIH) vs. Cedrik-Marcel Stebe (GER)
Roberto Bautista Agut (ESP)  vs. Dustin Brown (GER) – I love Dreddy’s attacking play, but RBA will likely either win in 3 or grind his way to a 4 set win.
