Predicted Winners in BOLD
M. McDonald vs. 30 C. Ruud
J. Sinner vs. 11 K. Khachanov – Not a great draw for the talented Sinner. In a few years, these two may be locking horns in the final 8 or beyond in these draws.
A. Kuznetsov vs. S. Querrey – Querrey could come through, but I ever so slightly think Kuznetsov takes this one.
S. Nagal vs. B. Klahn
E. Ruusuvuori vs. A. Bedene
A. Murray vs. Y. Nishioka – What can Murray do? I am anxious to find out.
31 M. Čilić vs. D. Kudla – Kudla is an admirable player and a pro’s pro, but Cilic is not the right opponent for him to pull an upset.
N. Gombos vs. R. Albot
15 F. Auger Aliassime vs. T. Monteiro
J. Chardy vs. 10 A. Rublev – Chardy can be dangerous, but I think Rublev comes through in 3 or 4 sets.
J. Munar vs. 2 D. Thiem – Can he shake off “Cincy”?
V. Pospisil vs. P. Kohlschreiber – Pospisil is in his Samual Gompers mode, but I am not sure that helps him win any matches.
T. Daniel vs. G. Barrère
T. Seyboth vs. 23 D. Evans
29 G. Pella vs. J. Wolf
C. O’Connell vs. L. Đere
8 R. Bautista Agut vs. T. Sandgren – Both men have some momentum from last week. I like RBA.
L. Mayer vs. 25 M. Raonic – Not the easiest match, but Raonic is in good form.
C. Moutet vs. J. Veselý
F. López vs. R. Carballés Baena
M. Granollers vs. K. Majchrzak
M. Fucsovics vs. H. Dellien
21 A. De Minaur vs. A. Martin
I. Karlović vs. R. Gasquet – This match … one for the ages.
S. Caruso vs. J. Duckworth
G. Mager vs. M. Kecmanović
J. Millman vs. 22 N. Basilashvili – Maybe?
F. Tiafoe vs. A. Seppi – Match of the Day?
Y. Sugita vs. U. Humbert
6 M. Berrettini vs. G. Soeda
14 G. Dimitrov vs. T. Paul
F. Delbonis vs. 3 D. Medvedev
