Which seeds are in danger in round 2?

Which seeded players do you think will lose/could los in rounde 2?

(1) rafael nadal v.s ryan sweeting
gilles muller v.s milos raonic(31)
(24)juan martin del potro v.s olivier rochus
dudi sela v.s gilles simon(15)

(10)mardy fish v.s denis istomin
robin hasse v.s fernando verdasco(21)
(25)juan ignacio chela v.s alex bogomolov jr.
julien benneteau v.s tomas berdych(6)

(4)andy murray v.s tobias kamke
(17)richard gasquet v.s igor kunitsyn
simone bolelli v.s stanislas wawrinka(14)

(9)gael monfils v.s grega zemlja
victor hanescu b.s andy roddick(8)

(7)david ferrer v.s ryan harrisson
karol beck v.s guillermo garcia lopez(26)

(16)nicolas almagro v.s john isner
somdev devvarman v.s mikhail youzhny(18)
(28)david nalbandian v.s andreas haider-mauer
adrian mannarino v.s roger federer(3)

(5)robin soderling v.s lleyton hewitt
(20) florian mayer v.s xavier malisse

(13)viktor troicki v.s lu-yen shun
ricardo mello v.s michael llodra(19)
(32)marcos baghdatis c.s andreas seppi

i wouldnt be surprised to see muller and sela take out simon and raonic..in fact i expect that. Muller is just a better grass courter with more experience then milos, when he's playing well he does everything that milos can do and better.

Dudi is on a hot streak and is a pretty good grass court player, he can take simon out if he's not playing well

denis knows how to play on grass, he made the 3rd round and nearly made the 4th round last year. Mardy plays well on grass to but the potential for the upset is there

simone v.s stan is the one im least confident in but i think simone, if he keeps a level head has what it takes to beat stan

i think if karol plays well he has the game on grass to take ggl out.

my picking lleyton is mostly sentimental. We dont know how much longer lleyton can hang around and it would be great if he could go on a run here

xavier is dangerous on grass, if he's playing well he can score the upset

troicki v.s lu..is almost expected

this is a huge oppertunity to make a 3rd round for guys like muller, bolelli, sela and beck. They have the games to take their opponents down and muller, dudi and karol are better on this surface then raonic, simon or ggl so they need to take these chances.

Re: Which seeds are in danger in round 2?

Well those picks aren't that bad.

In addition I think Isner got a shot at Almagro. Seems like he is in decent form.


I'm also crazy enough to say that Harrison has a shot at Ferrer. This is grass and Harrison impressed me today with a very good serve and 37 winners to only 19 errors. Big question is if he is mentally up for it


Anyway I'm sort of expecting 3-4 seeds to fall.

Re: Which seeds are in danger in round 2?

Wawrinka could have some big problems with Bolelli.

Almagro could definitely face danger with big Johnny Isner.

Seppi could pose a problem for Baghdatis on grass for sure.

Chela to keep making his comeback in slams this year!

bolelli definately has the game to beat stan, its just all bout the head for him

lu is a grass courter and viktor's game doesnt translate to the surface well at all
