Which top AO seed will fall first?

Roddick, Federer, Ferrero, Coria. None of these top seeds have had stellar results going into Monday. Which one will drop out first, and why?

Re: Which top AO seed will fall first?

Well Federer got it easy until 4th round and even then I expect him to beat Hewitt

Roddick should go deep into the tournament

Ferrero as he can lose to just about anyone at the moment

Re: Which top AO seed will fall first?

IF he is going to play, I think Guillermo will be out first. He is not in a good shape, physically speaking. Out of those players, I also hope he'll be out first, since I like him the least.

well my choice is ferrero...cos i do not want to jinx him by sayin that he will win AO!!!

Q. As the older player, you don't feel like it's your role to go up to the younger players and talk to them first?

Re: Which top AO seed will fall first?

ummmm

you mean a top seed or any seed?

well let's see.... first round matches.....

Andy could lose (to Gonzalez), Massu could lose (to Nieminen), Fish could lose (to Karlovic), Moya could lose (to Blake), Spadea could lose (to Enqvist), Grosjean could lose (to Youzhny), Robredo could lose (to Gaudio), Poo could lose (to Johansson), and many more.....and that's just the first round...

as for the TOP seeds? Well Andy has a very tough 1st and seeded 3rd round opponent (Dent gives him problems and Gonzo has too), Fed obviously has Bjorkman then one of various troublemakers for him, Ferrero kind of has an easy draw but since he hasn't won an ATP/ITF match since October I'd say it's hard to predict, and Andre well.... I just don't see him being the first seed to lose lol

Re: Which top AO seed will fall first?

hey you edited your post after I did all that work lol...

I'd say probably Coria. spotty healthy and potentially tough first-round opponent. But Andy could easily go out in 1st or 3rd rnd.

Re: Which top AO seed will fall first?

All you people voting for Ferrero - have you seen his draw? Do you really think that he's going to lose to Montanes? Come on!

I voted for Coria, because his fitness is in question, and he has a tougher draw than Ferrero.

I think that Fed will go down to Hewitt, though.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Seriously? There is no chance that that will happen! Federer should beat Hewitt anytime. Well I hope he will, anyway

I think that Federer has a better game... I just don't think that it really matters if Hewitt is hungry and motivated. Remember what happened in Davis Cup?

I lack direction.

Re: Which top AO seed will fall first?

Actually, I don't remember lol. I must be trying to ban it from my thoughts. Every win of Hewitt over Federer is unfair, in my opinion Hehe I really hope that Roger will be in better shape at the start of the AO, so that he can beat Lleyton. Go Roger!

Re: Which top AO seed will fall first?

I see a possibility of Andy's out 1st round, but if he's not, he will go far.
Maybe Coria for his physical part and Ferrero for his poor record now.
Roger is in no danger until 4th round. Of course he should beat Hewitt if it's him stands in the way. But I'm also doubting about it. Yes, go Roger!
