Predicted Winners in BOLD
David Ferrer (ESP) vs. Kyle Edmund (GBR) – This might be a bad pick, but I think the surface favors Edmund.
 Kevin Anderson (RSA) vs. [Q] Guillermo Garcia-Lopez (ESP) – Mr. Anderson is aiming toward the O2 in London.
Lucas Pouille (FRA) vs. [WC] Sebastian Ofner (AUT) – Pouille could be a big player in 2018.
 Dominic Thiem (AUT) vs. Andrey Rublev (RUS) – I like Rublev to beat a shakey Thiem playing in front of Austrian fans. This might be an awful pick.
[Q] Dennis Novak (AUT) vs. [LL] Thomas Fabbiano (ITA) – The lucky loser has nothing to lose and might play quite freely.
 Sam Querrey (USA) vs. Albert Ramos-Vinolas (ESP) – Match of the Day? An indoor hard court and a grass court are the two places I would clearly favor Querrey in this match-up.
Jan-Lennard Struff (GER) vs. Pablo Cuevas (URU)
 Pablo Carreno Busta (ESP) vs. [Q] Guido Pella (ARG) – Argentina and Spain have been the two best countries on tour for several years now. I expect a good match.
