Predicted Winners in BOLD
Grigor Dimitrov (18) vs Aslan Karatsev – Dimitrov has a good path to another major semifinal. I am not sure he can go further than that at this event, but he is probably the 5th most likely player to win the event among the 8 remaining. 3 of the bigger obstacles are on the other side of the draw. Dimitrov is in a sense 6 great sets away from a major title. Looking ahead could cost him a great opportunity though.
Novak Djokovic (1) vs Alexander Zverev (6) – If Novak is healthy enough, I think he wins in 3 or 4 sets. If Novak is struggling or if Zverev can use the night conditions and fast court, it might go 5 or be an upset.
