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".

Re: Dangerous Floaters for RG

Nicolas Almagro and Garcia Lopez could do some damage.

Re: Dangerous Floaters for RG

Acasuso is one and he is due for a big RG result.

I would have said Horna previously, but he hasn't done much at all this year and Mathieu if he wakes up alright might take out a top player and lose to a lower one.

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".

Re: Dangerous Floaters for RG

I would have said Andreev, but ever since he won Valencia he has hardly won a match.

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".

Yeah I think Luis, Almagro and Berdych could do some damage but their late form is far away from convincing.

Re: Dangerous Floaters for RG

Almagro has potential, but he is so hit and miss, maybe he can some hits in during this RG.

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".

Re: Dangerous Floaters for RG

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.

Re: Dangerous Floaters for RG

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

Re: Dangerous Floaters for RG

Gasquet and Ferrero are seeded so that was the only reason I didn't include them and Gasquet has been on such a tear.

What will happen is that fastcourters in 1-8 will probably get fastcourters in their section.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

Good luck to:

Re: Dangerous Floaters for RG

Lol. For me Ferrer is as much a floater as Gasquet or Gaudio
