RG - Unseeded players - Who's the most dangerous?

05-16-2011, 09:24 PM
By his recent results I think it could be Feliciano. Cuevas and Montanes could produce some upset too

Most dangerous is definitely Gulbis, IF he takes it seriously. Big if though.

id say a 3 way tie between feliciano, kohli and gulbis(if he's taking this seriously and finally completely healthy)

Jaun Monaco and Pablo Cuevas on clay are both dangerous and could cause a big upset, and I think Somdev Devvarman could prove dangerous for guys ranked outside the top 8. Lopez can be dangerous, but less so on clay. Gulbis is a possibility, and Montanes is handy on clay but I doubt he could beat anyone in the top 10.

Clay courts player like Montanes, Cuevas or Giraldo etc. Sadly I think Gulbis don't have good form plus his GS performance was bad recently. Isner can't make big problem on clay. Feliciano and Anderson can be also a hard opponent.
I still hope Montanes's chance, I vote for him. But he needs better form than in last weeks.

gulbis, as we love to say every year

apart from Isner and Anderson, all of the rest are relatively tough opponents for anyone, half of them are clay journeymen, other half are well known players capable of playing on all surfaces.

For Soderling, Kohlschreiber... :)

Depends on the conditions, the climate, the draw.

Ljubicic could be very dangerous. His main deficiency, his movement, is less of a problem on clay, since he knows how to slide, has good court coverage, good dropshots, slices, variations, etc.

Kohlschreiber is too much of a choker to ever be a real danger, but you never know with him.

Monaco is losing to weaker and weaker opponents every week. I doubt he'll be much of a danger.

Gulbis. The French lasses better watch out when he's on the prowl.

Whoever Roddick draws first round and you KNOW he will draw the highest ranked unseeded player. :lol:

Potentially all bar Isner and Anderson, but only really Gulbis (if he gets his head together) is a danger. Monaco, Kohl and Ljubicic - maybe. The clay courters may be bolters, but they won't challenge the best players.

I am sure the best player right now is Feliciano Lopez- from this group. He has amazing clay season so far, and it is his worst surface, RG was last years pretty fast for clay event so hope it stays that way and i can see Feli with his wonderfull serve make some upset. He take Federer to 3x TB, played even 1st set with Djoker in Belgrade. I hope he will do something - all depends on draw of course - if he gets Djokovic or Rafa in 1R than he is done, but with good draw i can see him in 4R.

05-17-2011, 12:51 PM
kohlschreiber. isner and gulbis can also be dangerous

05-17-2011, 03:50 PM
If Montanes gets a weak seed, he could do damage here. Let's say he gets Querrey for example, he could definitely beat him and make it through some rounds. With Montanes' luck, I wouldn't be surprised if he got Querrey :lol:

Not a bad call. Not a bad call at all :yeah:
