Walking byes at RG.

I've seen this on other forums, but never here. I thought it was interesting so to get to the point, which players do you consider out of the main draw direct acceptance list to be walking byes aka players that everyone is wanting to draw in R1, knowing that should be an easy victory, and that player has basically zero shot at beating anyone half-decent. Who are the cakewalk draws on the entry list this year?

Tough question considering every match up carries its own elements

Re: Walking byes at RG.

as sad sas this is to say for me(about some of them) :

ernests gulbis - because of his weak performance in grand slams for a long time now
igor andreev - because...well do i need to say?

thiemo de bakker - has been aboslute garabge for the longest time

mikhail kukushkin/andrey golubev - neither one of them is very good in the first place and both have been struggling to even win matches this year

yen shun lu - this is the guy everyone wants, he cant play on clay

Dimugtrov, Rodduck, Lu should be the favorites

Re: Walking byes at RG.

Would love to see a rematch of Roddick vs Lu in R1, no idea who would win.

Re: Walking byes at RG.

A lot of guys with physical question marks. Roddick, Dimitrov, Karlovic, Melzer, Haas, Ferrero, Robredo, Anderson, Hewitt, Picasso, Stepanek, Berankis, Tursunov, Hajek all have physical clouds surrounding them. These guys have either retired/withdrawn from events or not been around in a while. Honestly, the draw will have tons of holes in it and I expect a lot of surprises and upsets.

You can wish for a better opponent on clay only if you're Fernando Verdasco
