1. Jelena Jankovic v Agnieszka Radwanska
My top match of the day is between two players who have had contrasting seasons on the tour. Agnieszka Radwanska has had a stellar season, hitting 50 match wins and rising to world number two, meanwhile Jelena Jankovic has been spiralling down the rankings. This match though could be an interesting one; Jankovic has had something of an upturn in form, making the final in Dallas and has surprisingly come through the first two rounds without any drama. Radwanska, who has been battling a shoulder injury and fatigue, was inches away from falling in the last round before eventually storming past the shaky, Carla Suarez Navarro. Jankovic will not get a better chance to progress deep into a Grand Slam draw and with Radwanska not 100% the opportunity is there for the taking.. can she do it?
4. Marin Cilic v Kei Nishikori
You will have noticed with my highlights that I like to pick out some interesting matches that may miss the headlines. This third round match between Kei Nishikori and Marin Cilic offers up much intrigue and is particularly difficult to call. Jo-Wilfried Tsonga was knocked out of this section offering the winner a massive opportunity to make the quarter-finals. Cilic wasted a two set lead in his second round match before eventually passing the challenge of Daniel Brands in five sets. Nishikori has been completely undisturbed in his path to the third round. Cilic was my tip in my original predictions, but I have changed my mind since and am backing Nishikori for the win a tough five setter.
Prediction – Nishikori to beat Cilic in 5 sets
Serena Williams to beat Ekaterina Makarova in 2 very tight sets
Angelique Kerber to beat Olga Govortsova in 2 sets
Roberta Vinci to beat Dominika Cibulkova in 3 sets
Maria Kirilenko to beat Andrea Hlavackova in 2 sets
Sara Errani to beat Olga Puchkova in 2 sets
Tsvetana Pironkova to beat Silvia Soler Espinosa in 3 sets
There are a number of exciting mens matches tomorrow, most of them involving Americans. Sam Querrey will once again do battle with Tomas Berdych; the pair faced off in Winston Salem where Berdych prevailed. Mardy Fish plays the night match with Giles Simon, meanwhile Jack Sock will take on Nicolas Almagro. Andy Murray and Roger Federer both play Spaniards and should not be troubled against Feliciano Lopez and Fernando Verdasco respectively.
Roger Federer to beat Fernando Verdasco in 3 sets
Mardy Fish to beat Giles Simon in 3 sets
Nicolas Almagro to beat Jack Sock in 5 sets
Tomas Berdych to beat Sam Querrey in 4 sets
