[4] Fabio Fognini (ITA) vs Andrej Martin (SVK) H2H This match is a great story for Martin (no relation) who has battled through many challenger events in his career.  He has banked at least 150 ATP ranking points.  With a win, he will add 100 more points to that total.  He is a capable player who competes…

Predicted Winners in BOLD The Defending Champion and World #1 Headline [9] Marin Cilic (CRO) vs [27] Jérémy Chardy (FRA) – I am half tempted to pick Chardy, but I think Chardy’s backhand is a weakness.  These two big men play similar styles, but I think Cilic has a more well-rounded game that is less…

Predicted Winners in BOLD [11] Feliciano Lopez (ESP) vs Benjamin Becker (GER) H2H – It is pretty amazing Becker is still out there given that his biggest moment came at the 2005 US Open.  On clay, Becker might even have a look at an upset vs. FLo.  Still, Lopez is playing the best tennis of his career, and…
