Predicted Winners in BOLD
 Elina Svitolina (UKR) vs. Katerina Siniakova (CZE) – I could see one set being close, but chalk advances.
 Caroline Wozniacki (DEN) vs. Jana Fett (CRO) – Woz in Oz – somehow I have to come up with a tag line here.
 Daria Gavrilova (AUS) vs. Elise Mertens (BEL) – The young Aussie advances.
[Q] Marta Kostyuk (UKR) vs. [WC] Olivia Rogowska (AUS)
 Jelena Ostapenko (LAT) vs. Ying-Ying Duan (CHN) – Ostapenko is on her way to another match win at a major.
 Julia Goerges (GER) vs. Alizé Cornet (FRA) – I think Cornet pulls off the mild upset.
 Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova (RUS) vs. Kateryna Bondarenko (UKR)
I doubt Bencic’s planetary conquest is like Lex Luthor’s but …
Belinda Bencic (SUI) vs. [Q] Luksika Kumkhum (THA) – Bencic conquered Venus. Can she conquer earth?
 Daria Kasatkina (RUS) vs. Magda Linette (POL)
 Kiki Bertens (NED) vs. Nicole Gibbs (USA)
 Magdalena Rybarikova (SVK) vs. [Q] Kirsten Flipkens (BEL)
Kaia Kanepi (EST) vs. Monica Puig (PUR) – I am glad to see that Puig can win meaningful matches, but I need to see one or two more wins more before I start picking her again.
Shuai Zhang (CHN) vs. [Q] Denisa Allertova (CZE)
Irina-Camelia Begu (ROU) vs. Petra Martic (SLO)
 Anett Kontaveit (EST) vs. Mona Barthel (GER)
Carla Suárez Navarro (ESP) vs. Timea Babos (HUN) – CSN should be ranked high enough to get one of the thirty-two seeds. This event could help re-establish her.
