Actually there are quite a bunch of good players out there who could upset anyone in the first round...

Gonzalez, Nieminen, Ljubicic, Blake, Arazi, Chela... plus the ones already mentioned

Ferrero would LOVE to meet Arthurs

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: Players seeded players don't wanna meet in the 1st round at the AO

Wow! Ljubicic is unseeded?
Escudé is going to be a tough draw for any seeded player, but it would surely make an interesting match. Todd Reid is doing well as well. And Raemon Sluiter, I think, is not doing too bad either. Karol Kucera too, of course!

Yeah, Ljubicic just missed seeding by a few places, so he'll be quite a dangerous floater, unless several people pull out before the AO starts.

Hmmm...maybe González, Youzhny, Feli López, Costa, etc.

If one of them are seeded, sorry....I'm not good on seeds' stuff.

Aren't all love stories destined to fail?

Yes, Ljubicic will be a highly dangerous floater, - no one will want to see his name against theirs in the 1st round.

Good choices everyone.

In addition to those listed previously, Fabrice Santoro can be dangerous, (especially for tall Russian US Open winners ). And Sargis Sargsian wasn't much fun for a certain tall American US Open winner at last years Roland Garros!

Sargsian and Fabrice are obviously very dangerous opponents, but it is safe to say that no match will be really easy. Every year, things seem to get closer and the men's tennis broadens.
