so far at least one top 10 seed has fallen in the first and second rounds

so my question is which top 10 seed(if any)do you think will lose in the 3rd round?

(1)Rafel Nadal v.s Antonio Veic
(10)Mardy fish v.s Gilles Simon
(5)Robin soderling v.s Leonardo mayer
(4)andy murray v.s michael berrer
(7)david ferrer v.s sergiy stakhovsky
(9)gael monfils v.s steve darcis
(3)roger federer v.s janko tipsarevic
(2)novak djokovic v.s juan martin del potro

or do you think maybe that they will all make it through?

Fish vs. Simon is pretty even up.

The other top seeds will win.

The seed that will fall is obviously Fish, though he could surprise us.

The other seeds that are in the most risk are Djokovic, Federer and Monfils, though they are not in any big risk. All the other seeds have easy opponents.

simon should win
darcis has a good chance
delpo and tipsy can do it.

I'm pretty sure at least 1 will fall. Probably 2.

Fish vs Simon feels like 50-50. Federer to fall vs Tipsarevic is a pretty bold pick. Not to mention Federer to fall in a R3! Hasn't happened in years and he even if he gets in trouble he will handle it.

I say Ferrer is more likely to fall. Stakhovsky got him to a TB in Madrid on clay and looks in slightly better shape now. Could definitely see upset potential. Stakhovsky is a big dude and his clay game is a little underrated. Ferrer isn't at his best on fast high bouncing clay. Dangerous match for him.

Also Murray because he played like crap today and Berrer is a pretty tough customer with this surface and new heavy ball. Pretty crazy pick but I can see it happen.

Monfils is not going to lose to Darcis.

Federer will be challenged and very possibly beaten

I can only see Fish losing here. But even that is not certain. I'd say it's fairly even (1-1 in H2H, Fish winning the most recent at Cinci 2010).

Federer has a 3-0 H2H with Tipserovic and routined him 6-3, 6-4 in Basel in 2010. It'll be a tough match but he should come through. Still they did have an epic 5 setter in the AO in 2008 (6-7(5), 7-6(1), 5-7, 6-1, 10-8) but the stats tell the full story (Federer saved 0/3 break points, Tipserovic saved 16/21, with Federer winning like 30 points more in the match. Federer at his break point conversion best as usual even back then).

Can't see Del Potro beating Djokovitch over 5 sets, unless he's fully fit, and I'm not convinced he is (someone said he was playing with a tear in one of his muscles).

Nadal might be way below his best, but it'll still be enough to beat Veic.

Monfills will win in 4, with one clown set.

Soderling will breeze through. Ferrer might be pushed to 4, maybe even 5, but I expect him to come through. Murray will win comfortably too.

All the same, just be unexpected! :devil: I hope isn't Ferrer or Nadal. I started to enjoy the big upsets. :D it is just too good!

Fish is the only one with a good chance to lose. It's a gutsy call on Federer. Janko (and all Serbians, really) is playing the best tennis of his career right now so it definitely could happen. Still don't expect it to though.

I envy your optimism, but the dark side seems to be getting stronger.

Fish, Monfils, Djokovic, Federer. All 4 are likely to lose

Fish. Maybe Djokovic if Delpo produces a lights-out game, or Monfils if he plays like a headless chook.

Federer is finished, he will never win another grand slam.

He's not gonna lose to Tipsy though. lol

Fish is most likely to fall.

I see Monfils, Ferrer, maybe Federer going beyond 3 sets but I think they will all manage to win.
