The season officially starts today with first round play in Brisbane and the start of the Hopman Cup.

Here are my picks for the day:

Brisbane

Rogers d. Genie in 3 sets: Sorry Genie in a bottle, but I got to call like I see 'em. I'm still not feeling the work ethic from Genie that she needs to have.

Pliskova d. Poots in 3 sets: This is a tough opening match for Pliskova, but she'll survive.

McHale d. Errani in 3 sets

Vesnina d. Cornet in 3 sets: Could be a big year for my second-favorite Russian. Can she make the Top 10? Stay tuned.

Kasatkina d. Begu in 3 sets

Makarova d. Doi in 2 sets

Hopman Cup

U.S. d. Czech Republic, 3-0

Australia d. Spain, 3-0
