Predicted Winners in BOLD
 Caroline Garcia (FRA) vs.  Madison Keys (USA) – Keys will need to be sharp to win this match, but I think the match is on her racquet as her winner to unforced errors ratio will determine the winner. That makes Keys a slight favorite.
 Angelique Kerber (GER) vs. Su-Wei Hsieh (TPE) – Kerber appears to be recovering her 2016 form, but it is not a given that she has finished finding that form yet.
 Karolina Pliskova (CZE) vs.  Barbora Strycova (CZE) – Pliskova was #1 for a decent portion of 2017 and is flying under the radar here(?).
 Simona Halep (ROU) vs. Naomi Osaka (JPN) – This should be a really good match. Halep has a rough section of the draw.
