Verdasco and Cilic will do it for sure. And maybe Monfils!

Ljubo, Pics and Melzer, I don't think so. I have my doubts about Monfils too.

Obviously the younger players have better chances but you never know.

Youzhny should be in the poll.

Re: Former GS semifinalists, Can they do it again?

I'd say yes to all of them except Gasquet, probably Ljubo and maybe Ferrer. Melzer I can definitely see making one at Wimbledon or US Open with the correct draw and an upset. Monfils is a very good clay courter, and also I think AO is a court he can do well on. As Misha should definitely be on the poll, because he certainly has chances, possibly the best chances of any of these guys.
