One player whom you expect to spring big surprises at US Open 2010

not many expected del potro to rise to the occasion and beat nadal and federer back to back in a slam and run away with the title.......chance for that sort of thing happening this year looks less but if you feel someone can step it up against the big 4(or big 3?) this time and reach a semis or final, who could be it?

will berdych strike once more? or will it be someone outside the top 20? how do you rate the chances of players like thomaz bellucci, jurgen melzer and king david?

Good thread.

Berdych or Soderling if theyre hot I guess can go deep.

I dont see Belluci or Melzer making an impact to be honest.

Berdych and Soderling doing damage wouldn't even be surprising though. Both are top 8 players.

Tennis has no blood passport system, and does basically no out of competition testing.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).
