Who Will Be The Most Dangerous Unseeded Player At The 2010 Australian Open?

Of the players that will be unseeded at the Australian Open who do you think has the best chance of at least making the 4th round and possibly upsetting some seeded players in the early rounds?

I'm going to pick Richard Gasquet because he's been playing well lately and will be eager to get some good results after missing much of the 2009 season (he's looking like the favourite to reach the final from his side of the draw in Sydney and a final against Berdych or Hewitt would be winnable which would give him a boost going into the Australian Open).

Baghdatis or Gasquet, depending on which Baggy turns up.

Possibly Malisse if he gets through qualifying.

Yuki Bhambri.

He is going to stun everyone out there . Just like how he forged past everyone last year in Juniors Australian Open.

Re: Who Will Be The Most Dangerous Unseeded Player At The 2010 Australian Open?

In order, from MOST to LEAST dangerous:

Gasquet - gave him the edge over Baghdatis purely because he usually has the more reliable serve, and I'd possibly rate him as the fitter player.

Baghdatis
----------------------------------
Gulbis - playing better this year, but can't ignore that he is very one-dimensional. Should either be figured out by a stronger player further into the draw (e.g. R3), or lose early on one of his poor days.
----------------------------------
Blake - I think we've seen the last of Blake as a top-class player. Can still be dangerous on his day, but I wonder if his fitness is quite what it used to be? Could surely count against him in brutal heat?
----------------------------------
Isner - wouldn't be too concerned by Big John here. Surely the heat is a big factor against him, and if he is involved in a 5-setter or two he will have no decisive tiebreak to call upon.


Don't agree with the mentions of Karlovic and Dent...best-of-5 set matches weigh against them, as does the heat.

Nor Kubot - again, extended matches in heat (he cramped in Doha), and really he isn't that good a player imo.

Hanescu had some injury last week, generally struggles for fitness, and isn't a world-beater on hard courts.
