Re: Which Grand Slam produces the most surprises?
In terms of the top players bombing out- both RG and Wimbledon are minefields for seeds.
In terms of who lifts the trophy on the 2nd Sunday, RG. Wimbledon only has a handful of people who you can almost be assured of winning the thing. With RG on the other hand you have about 50 players who have a more or less equal chance- in recent years look at the surprise winners: Gaudio, Costa (although to me it wasn't such a surprise, I expected him to win it one day, but the timing was surprising), Guga the first time he won (again, in hindsight he is one of the best ever on the red stuff but in 1997 nobody heard of him), Agassi (again, his timing, even though he made two RG finals in the early nineties).
