Re: Who will be the biggest surprise on grass this year???

is this really that different than this thread?

Dangerous floaters for Wimbledon

This is an honest question on my part. I'm not deleting this thread or moving it.

Just help me understand why this should be a separate thread.

Thank you in advance.

John Isner, cause he is going to beat Nadal in second round an Gulbis in first

No really, Juan Martin Del Potro is aiming for a fourth round/quarterfinal berth.

well, maybe there is a good reason for letting this thread stand. People have been complaining that I'm too trigger happy, so let's see how this turns out. I would have merged this with the "dangerous floaters" thread, but not this time.

The two threads are pretty much similar, just my opinion.

Re: Who will be the biggest surprise on grass this year???

The sole difference that I can think of is that the floaters thread is for non-seeded players, most people expect the winner to come from 4 people so that leaves 28 players who are excluded from the other thread,

As for who will be a surprise... I'm not sure, I may put money on Haase to beat Hewitt in R1 (but that's got plenty to do with having something to smile about on a sad day). Of the seeded players, if (and it's a big IF) Llodra can get past Ancic in R1 then I reckon that he'll make the Quarter finals
