Victoria Azarenka vs. Andrea Petkovic

John Isner vs. Gregoire Barrere

Another favorite that is getting too much credit comes with John Isner, says Reid.

Kaia Kanepi secured an upset win over Garbine Muguruza in round one while Beatriz Haddad Maia got past a tough Cristina Bucsa.

Petra Kvitova vs. Daria Saville

10:30 a.m. ET

Petra Kvitova got past Anna Bondar in two sets, but the scoreline doesn’t reflect Kvitova’s level, explains Reid.
