Kevin Anderson - 2.5 games v Jerzy Janowicz: Neither one of these players have too much in their game that the other will be unfamiliar with- Kevin Anderson will use the big serve to set up big shots from the baseline, while Jerzy Janowicz has a big serve but also has a tendency to go to the drop shot even if that shot is not exactly the most effective shot to take.
Those drop shots are a reason that he doesn't protect his serve as well as the Pole should considering his height and power he gets out of it. He is also very likely to throw in a number of double faults and giving Anderson a start will only mean this match is likely to go in one direction and that is towards the big South African.
A tie-breaker is not out of the question and their previous two matches have both featured at least one, but Kevin Anderson ran away with the match between these two at the US Open last year. Of course Janowicz might really enjoy the conditions in Winston Salem having reached the Final there last year and a win over Anderson will make him believe he can go one better this time around.
However, I think Anderson is the more solid player of the two and is unlikely to gift a break of serve in the same manner as Janowicz and I think Anderson moves on to the Quarter Final.
Borna Coric - 3.5 games v Diego Schwartzman: There is no surprise that there have been some ups and some downs in Borna Coric's first full year on the Tour, but the 18 year old has shown the talent which has many tipping him to go to the very top of the men's game. The hard courts should give him the edge over Diego Schwartzman in this Third Round match and help Coric reach another main Tour Quarter Final as he continues to improve his World Ranking.
Coric should considerable determination to come from a set down against Santiago Giraldo and beat the Colombian convincingly in the last Round. He also should have beaten Stan Wawrinka in Cincinnati last week and should be too good for Schwartzman who has had to dig deep to beat two clay courters this week.
The Coric forehand can break down at times, but I think his return of serve will keep Schwartzman under pressure and that will eventually wear down the latter both physically and mentally. Schwartzman was broken six times by Pablo Andujar in his last match and he does have to work hard for every service hold he manages, especially on the faster surfaces where players can use their power to hit through the court.
I expect there to be a few breaks of serve in this one too, but Coric to come out on top for the most part of the longer rallies. That should lead to a 63, 64 win for the higher Ranked player and a place in the Quarter Finals.
