so we have had gaudio win the french open, to me, i think that it is a real surprise, i thought coria would win. Alas no i did not happen, so what "surprise " winner do you want to see win wimby?

Nicolas Escudé would be my pick - has a classic s&v game, can beat the best of them, has had a lot of injuries. It would be great to see him do win the big W.

(Don't ask me to support him though if he plays Roger or Tim!)

Karol Beck or sebatien Grosjean!!!!!!!!

hmmm well if it had to be a surprise winner Id go for Igor Andreev :)

Mario Ancic all the way.

i have to go with Safin -- altho' i realise that it's not such an impossibility. he certainly has the game for it - just not the head... :confused:

it would be a surprise to me if he won...but i would be quite happy about it.

my true surprise pick will be --------- Coria. :haha: :bolt: now THAT would be a shocker, no!?

A Coria v Henman final would be a dream come true for me :D

Well. as Coria was a surprise for no winning French Open, he might be a surprise for wining Wimbledon, right ;) :rolleyes: ?

hhah, No, i know that will not happened.....
I think we will not have surprises on this one (federer or roddick)

There will be no surprise Wimbledon winner:D

Good point. How long has it been since there was a surprise winner at Wimbledon? Doesn't happen very often (and even less often at the USO).

The last two were hardly surprises, and whilst Ivanisevic's win wasn't expected in 2001, he wasn't an unlikely winner, having been in the final three times previously.
Krajicek would be the last one, I suppose, or maybe Michael Stich?
