Simon

Wawrinka

Troicki

Cilic

Del Potro (dubious knee condition, were he 100% healthy he'd not be included)

Youznhy

Gasquet

Tomic

Anyone else is a long shot, I think

Nadal is always in danger with the Simon Reed Jinx waiting, lurking around, ready to pounce.

Re: Which seeds are in danger of being upset in 2nd round?

i actually think schwank, ferrero and zeballos are the favorites in their matches and the upset would be if they lost

i hesitate about rosol/monaco as well. Apparently lukas played really well today and juan was average

Re: Which seeds are in danger of being upset in 2nd round?

IMO, In real danger of losing: Troicki, Granollers (mainly due to his injury), Tomic and Anderson.

Less likely to happenen but still risky round for them: Simon, Wawrinka, Cilic and Kohlschreiber.

Unfortunately yes, see his match thread, was playing with a leg taped and was visibly bothered by it. Hope it's nothing serious.

Re: Which seeds are in danger of being upset in 2nd round?

(22)andreas seppi
(11)gilles simon
(9)juan martin del potro
(7)tomas berdych
(6)david ferrer
(27)mikhail youzhny
(10)john isner
(8)janko tipsarevic

Seppi already overperformed.Kukushkin has a chance.
Baker and Llodra percentage wise are to me best for upsets.
ERV can be very, very dangerous (Nice match pretty close with Almagro) especially against not 100% fit Del Potro.
Paire is a total nutcase, but this might be his big breaktrough win over Ferrer.
Haase has a really nice chance over Youhzny.
Isner, No.10 seed? He should start practising grass,PHM to buy him a ticket.
Chardy struggled big time today, but if Janko lost a set to Querry, he might as well lose a match against Frenchman.

Re: Which seeds are in danger of being upset in 2nd round?

I would say Seppi, but I'm not sure how Kukushkin will bounce back from his match vs Gulbis.

Simon, Wawrinka, Troicki, Cilic, Anderson, Youzhny, Tomic, Benneteau, Monaco, and Mayer are the guys I can realistically see losing for sure. Berdych, Granollers, Tipsarevic and Kohlschreiber losing wouldn't surprise me. I can see Paire giving Ferrer trouble.

Re: Which seeds are in danger of being upset in 2nd round?

ERV can definitely make a match vs Del Potro. He has an attacking game and Del Potro isn't the best when he's being attacked rather than attacking himself. He's also not 100%. So that match could definitely end in a loss for JMDP.

Re: Which seeds are in danger of being upset in 2nd round?

Seppi needs to take advantage, Kukushkin is a dream opponent to have in the 2R of a GS.
