Predicted Winners in BOLD [2] Roger Federer (SUI) vs. Robin Haase (NED) H2H –  Roger Federer should win this match.  Federer has stated he’d like at least 1 more week at #1.  A win here is worth an additional 240 points.  I think the 36-year-old should win this match so long as he plays at a reasonable level.

Stan Wawrinka vs. Alexander Zverev Zverev is a young player with a lot of power and snap in his lanky frame.  Stan Wawrinka is coming off of his 3rd major title and seeks his 5th tournament win of 2016.  If Stan takes care of his service games, my guess is the pressure will shift to…
