Predicted Winners in BOLD
 Dominic THIEM (AUT) vs. Pablo ANDUJAR (ESP) – Andujar beat Federer in Geneva and is a a rugged veteran. Still, Thiem should overcome his struggles and win in 3 or 4 sets unless his dip is a really deep dip.
 Stefanos TSITSIPAS (GRE) vs. Jérémy Chardy (FRA) – Tsitsipas is one of the favorites not named Rafael Nadal. Still, Chardy is a rugged veteran from France. Chardy has a big forehand and strong serve. Tsitsipas needs to get off to a strong start because a deficit could be hard to overcome.
 Fabio FOGNINI (ITA) vs. [WC] Gregoire BARRERE (FRA) – Fabio Fognini … talented ball striker and a capable of imploding/tanking. I think Fognini wins, but I can’t say that with a lot of confidence.
 Alexander ZVEREV (GER) vs. [Q] Oscar OTTE (GER) – He should advance.
Marton FUCSOVICS (HUN) vs. Gilles SIMON (FRA) – Simon won Indianapolis in 2008 while I sat at courtside. Hard to believe so much time has passed.
Corentin MOUTET (FRA) vs. Laslo DJERE (SRB) – French mojo?
Kei NISHIKORI (JPN) vs. Alessandro GIANNESSI (ITA) – A mild upset
 Hubert Hurkacz (POL) vs. [Q] Botic VAN DE ZANDSCHULP (NED)
 Roberto BAUTISTA AGUT (ESP) vs. [Q} Mario VILELLA MARTINEZ (ESP) – RBA wins a battle of Spaniards.
 Grigor DIMITROV (BUL) vs. Marcos Giron (USA) – Dimitrov should advance.
 Dan EVANS (GBR) vs. Miomir KECMANOVIC (SRB)
Alejandro DAVIDOVICH FOKINA (ESP) vs. Mikhail KUKUSHKIN (KAZ)
Yannick HANFMANN (GER) vs. [Q] Henri LAAKSONEN [SUI) – A match tough qualifier advances?
Emil RUUSUVUORI (FIN) vs. [Q] Mackenzie MCDONALD (USA) – Match tough or not, I don’t trust a lot of US players on clay.
Egor GERASIMOV (BLR) vs. [WC] Enzo COUACAUD (FRA)
 Karen KHACHANOV (RUS) vs. Jiri VESELY (CZE)
 Cristian GARIN (CHI) vs. Juan Ignacio LONDERO (ARG)
[Q] Roman SAFIULLIN (RUS) vs. [Q] Carlos TABERNER (ESP)
 Pablo CARREÑO BUSTA (ESP) vs. Norbert Gombos (SVK) – PCB should advance.
