Agnieszka Radwanska vs. Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova
Edge to the experienced Pole Radwanska, who eased past the 17-year-old Russian in straight sets last year at Wimbledon.
Ivan Ljubicic vs. Andy Murray
Ljubicic is more fit after his rededication to tennis, but this should be a walk-through for Murray.
Ana Ivanovic vs. Sybille Bammer
Bammer’s game gives the statuesque Serb problems, and Ivanovic is no champ these days in the confidence department. Nevertheless put your cash on the Serb.
Fish/Roddick vs. Del Potro/Nalbandian
Nalbandian is out of the singles after a crushing loss to Rafael Nadal after holding match points, and Del Potro should have his mind on singles. The Argentines might be edgy after their Davis Cup confrontation in the locker room last year after melting down against Spain. Fish/Roddick should be pumped in front of the U.S. fans, and their serving will be something to deal with, so edge to the Americans.
Fernando Verdasco vs. Roger Federer
The rejuvenated Spaniard against the Swiss back from injury. Verdasco doesn’t offer-up the free points like he used to. Verdasco wins in a shocker.
Bryan/Bryan vs. Fyrstenberg/Matkowski
Headline: Bryans beat Poles.
Kirilenko/Pennetta vs. Azarenka/Zvonareva
Headline: Who cares? Nod to Azarenka/Zvonareva
Mirnyi/Ram vs. Hutchins/Murray
Hutchins will be hitting a lot of balls as the weak link, advantage The Beast/Ram.
