MODS: There is probably a thread where this would fit in, however it's pretty obvious that the scope of this one is to avoid the tardism, 2-digit IQ, verbal diarheea from all the non-fans of the sport that don't know more than 4-7 active players (including Muster) and go back and forth with hyping their favorites for the next grand-slam.
With this restriction, I believe we could get a more interesting discussion on the outsiders, and the non-highlight matches of the earlier rounds, even first week. I hope we can be on the same wavelength with this. Thanks.
So anyway, going in the meat of things:
1.What are some upsets that you are seeing in the first round?
2.Any specific thoughts on a match or a player that you feel could make a rise, or that is coming into the AO unprepared and bound to board the first flight come Wednesday - Thursday?
3.Conditions, reports from sight? Welcomed.
4.Any match odds that seem ridiculous given the circumstances?
6.Qualifiers that have a chance to make a bang (win a few matches?)?
