Dangerous Floaters for RG 2009, yes this means unseeded players
There was a similar thread last year for the players who were considered dangerous floaters and surprisingly one of them won the title last year.
These are the players who won't be seeded, but could make the quarter finals, take out a seeded players and have an impact beyond their ranking. Or a player that no seeded one wants to meet in the 1st round.
Ferrero was going to be that floater, but now he is seeded it won't be the case.
Kuerten, Puerta, Monaco, Verdasco and maybe Monfils.
“ On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".
Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
GWH, great thread. I was going to start this but you beat to it damn you.
He's not going to be a floater but since Richard GAsquet is going to be around a 32nd seed, he could have a match-up against a top ranked opponent in round 3. Same goes for JCF. I would hate to be a top ranked player and find out that I would have to possibly take on JCF or RG in my 3rd round match.
I guess as Volandri is seeded he cannot be considered a floater, but with a good draw I feel this time he will go far.
My picks are Monfils (power and talent but sooo much inconsistence yet), Verdasco (pretty much the same as Monfils) and Mathieu (although being frenchie little pressure for his ranking and Gasquet almighty). Ooops, almost forget. I expect this RG to be Hyung-Taik Lee's breakthrough on clay
