Matches to see in the first round

If you were in Melbourne and you have the chance to attend each round, which matches would you choose to see in each round? (leave aside favouritisms and nationalities. Just to see a good tennis match). According to the main draw schedule I would like to see the following matches:
- Youzhny-Gasquet
- Kubot- Zverev
- Tsonga- Stakhovsky
- Roddick- De Bakker
- Berdych-Haase
- F.Gonzalez-O.Rochus
- Cilic-Santoro
- Blake-Clement
- Stepanek-Karlovic
- Fish-Golubev
- Lacko- L.Mayer

[B]My hall of fame: Roger Federer-Rafael Nadal-Jo Wilfried Tsonga-David Ferrer-Juan Carlos Ferrero-Tommy Haas- Radek Stepanek-Lleyton Hewitt-David Nalbandian-Guillermo Cañas-Carlos Moya-Pete Sampras-Petr Korda- Kent Carlsson-Richard Krajicek-Karol Kucera-Tim Henman-Alex Corretja-Thomas Muster-Michael Stich-Pat Cash-Patrick Rafter-Darren Cahill-Ivan Lendl-Mats Wilander-Miloslav Mecir-Karel Novacek-Joakim Nystrom-Henrik Sundstrom-Hans Simonsson-Anders Jarryd-Jimmy Connors-Bjorn Borg-Guillermo Vilas.

Re: Matches to see in the first round

Probably Youzhny-Gasquet or Tsonga-Stakhovsky. Both should be really interesting. I don't want to see Santoro get trashed by Cilic, otherwise I would most likely go and see his (last) match.

1. Djoker (smoked peak Nadal with ease) and Fed (bagelled peak nadal on clay) 2. Murray (just utterly embarrassed Nadal) 3. Nadal.
Anyone who disputes any of this is a troll.

Re: Matches to see in the first round

I would watch:

Monaco vs Gulbis
Youzhny vs Gasquet - crying about either defeat
Almagro vs Malisse
Brands vs Korolev
Grosjean vs Ilhan
Rufin vs Tomic
Gicquel vs Bolelli
Stepanek vs Karlovic
Fish vs Golubev

I would probably want to watch Fed vs Andreev too but not because I'd hope for a good fight Just to support Andreev I guess
