Re: Pick your 2nd round upsets

Relatively boring round IMO.

I think just Hanescu and andujar will pull off upsets.

Re: Pick your 2nd round upsets

would ivan beating sam be an upset persay

Juan Martin Del Potro


But he lost 23 times against you.
's right. We have to also throw into the mix. But I do not think it is currently the decisive factor. But he has achieved in my opinion too much. Maybe this is crucial if I move him even closer after major victories. But 14 or 17 Grand Slam titles is a significant difference. At the present time there is no question that he must be the greater player than me.

Fish, Simon, Anderson, Stakhovsky.
There is no way that Ferrer loses tomorrow.

Re: Pick your 2nd round upsets

People who might get upset:

-Fish
-Wawrinka
-Melzer

I dont think any seeds will fall in this round though.

FEDERER
KARLOVIC

RAONIC

AND ALL OTHER SERVEBOTS


SERVEBOTS ARE TENNIS

Re: Pick your 2nd round upsets

Is Soderling pretending to not be a seed? Heh, just an observation..

Wawa may well be upset.. and Sam Querrey may well be upset after his victory.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Here's a tip. Don't regret nothin'. You ain't got the time. Before you know it, you'll be 60 something years old giving free advice to some cheapskate runt... Then going home and regretting it.

If at first you don't succeed, lower your standards.

Re: Pick your 2nd round upsets

1. Anderson
2. Querrey
3. Tsonga

Of all those I'm going with Querrey. He's very unstable, and someone like Ivan can certainly take advantage of that.

Re: Pick your 2nd round upsets

Haase over Fish
Schoorel over Wawrinka
Falla over Mayer

I bet on all of these

LIKE: Stepanek, Youzhny, Stakhovsky, Raonic, Pouille || HATE: Nadal, Almagro, Monfils, Troicki, Simon, Tipsarevic

Re: Pick your 2nd round upsets

I think Malisse, Haase, Schoorel, Chardy, L. Mayer are all the underdog, but very much capable of beating their opponent.
