Top 3 Darkhorses At The 2010 Australian Open...

Being the first Grand Slam of the year there is usually one player who always makes an unexpected deep run and takes the masses by surprise. My question to you is who are the 3 guys most likely to do that this year in your eyes?

Lopez

1. Tsonga
2. Monfils
3. Blake

I think Tsonga, Monfils and Cilic are too highly ranked to be really considered dark horses.

Blake is a good possibility, and I'd like to suggest Berdych, Troicki and Isner

Baghdatis had some big-time trouble with Berdych few days ago.

darkhorse= unseeded?

then I would say Nalbandian, Karlovic (up for one upset, no real deep run) and Bagdatis (don't know what was wrong the other day, still he could go to the QF with a decent draw)

Blake won' go far, even in his prime he chocked in slams (except to good Us Open QF)

Gasquet
Nalbandian
Berdych

After the first week of events, we should have something of a clearer picture.

1. Richard Gasquet
2. Ernest Gulbis
3. Leo Mayer

What will happen is exactly what happened in 2006..Ernest Gulbis will make the semis, go two sets and a break down to David Burgerbandian..and then Nalby will tank and lose in 5, Ernest will get his beans in the final to a washed up Frauderer.

Put money on it.

They will all go home after 1R

It depends on their draws.
Besides I don't think a player like Nalbandian or Gasquet is a darkhorse.I won't be surprised if they reach semifinal or final.

I think Gasquet might go far, but he should be higher ranked anyway :)
