Top 3 Darkhorses At The 2010 Australian Open...

Being the first Grand Slam of the year there is usually one player who always makes an unexpected deep run and takes the masses by surprise. My question to you is who are the 3 guys most likely to do that this year in your eyes?

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.

Re: Top 3 Darkhorses At The 2010 Australian Open...

I think Tsonga, Monfils and Cilic are too highly ranked to be really considered dark horses.

Blake is a good possibility, and I'd like to suggest Berdych, Troicki and Isner

Corrected!

Baghdatis had some big-time trouble with Berdych few days ago.
