No. 16 Fernando Verdasco (-250) vs. No. 25 Andreas Seppi (+175)

This is no gimme. Seppi is having his best season and is at a career-best ranking. He needed five sets to reach the third round, coming back to win over Mikhail Kukushkin. But Verdasco needed five sets in his opening round with little-regarded Steve Darcis. His win over Rafa Nadal on the suspect blue clay at Madrid is a distant memory and his 6-0 head-to-head record against Seppi doesn't mean that much because they haven't played since 2009.

Pick: Verdasco.

No. 12 Gilles Simon (-118) vs. No. 21 Stan Wawrinka (-118)

Simon had to work very hard to win a five-setter with Brian Baker in the second round, but that's his deal - he can run all day. He takes his counter-punching defensive skills, which are considerable, against Wawrinka's powerful game. Two excellent backhands in this match, which also could go five. Simon's game is predictable from match to match, Wawrinka's is not.

Pick: Simon.

No. 14 Ana Ivanovic (-200) vs. No. 24 Sara Errani (+140)

The mighty little Italian doesn't cut a formidable figure on court, but she's awfully good on clay - 18-3 overall this year. I think she's playing well enough to take down the one-time French Open winner Ivanovic, who was playing better earlier in the season than she is now. Ivanovic hits with more authority, but Errani covers more court.

Pick: Errani.
