Question Australian Open: Upset

Do you think there will be any upsets at the Australian Open in the first few rounds? Who will upset which player?

Loves...Ernests Gulbis



Dinara Safina ~ Sorana Cirstea ~ Marin Cilic ~ Sabine Lisiki~ Philipp Kohlshrieber ~ Gilles Simon ~ Ryan Harrison ~ Gisela Dulko ~ Fernando Verdasco ~

Re: Australian Open: Upset

You want someone to say Gulbis, but if Gulbis makes the 3rd or 4th round it will upset some people.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

No i don't why would i want people to say that? Just because he is my favorite player. I was just wondering what people thought? Is that a crime? Anyways, i don't think he will.

Re: Australian Open: Upset

Hard to call upsets when the draw isn't out yet.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Australian Open: Upset

Hate to say it, but I feel Roger is due an early exit in a slam.

Re: Australian Open: Upset

I think Federer, Rafito or Djokovic will be upset in the first 3 rounds!
