(24)juan martin del potro v.s olivier rochus
dudi sela v.s gilles simon(15)

(20) florian mayer v.s xavier malisse

(13)viktor troicki v.s lu-yen shun
ricardo mello v.s michael llodra(19)
(32)marcos baghdatis c.s andreas seppi

i wouldnt be surprised to see muller and sela take out simon and raonic..in fact i expect that. Muller is just a better grass courter with more experience then milos, when he's playing well he does everything that milos can do and better.

Dudi is on a hot streak and is a pretty good grass court player, he can take simon out if he's not playing well

denis knows how to play on grass, he made the 3rd round and nearly made the 4th round last year. Mardy plays well on grass to but the potential for the upset is there

simone v.s stan is the one im least confident in but i think simone, if he keeps a level head has what it takes to beat stan

i think if karol plays well he has the game on grass to take ggl out.

my picking lleyton is mostly sentimental. We dont know how much longer lleyton can hang around and it would be great if he could go on a run here

xavier is dangerous on grass, if he's playing well he can score the upset

troicki v.s lu..is almost expected

this is a huge oppertunity to make a 3rd round for guys like muller, bolelli, sela and beck. They have the games to take their opponents down and muller, dudi and karol are better on this surface then raonic, simon or ggl so they need to take these chances.

Raonic, Simon, Verdasco, Ferrer, Almagro, Soderling, Mayer, Troicki.
There's a lot of real potential upsets this round.

Well those picks aren't that bad.

In addition I think Isner got a shot at Almagro. Seems like he is in decent form.

I'm also crazy enough to say that Harrison has a shot at Ferrer. This is grass and Harrison impressed me today with a very good serve and 37 winners to only 19 errors. Big question is if he is mentally up for it

Anyway I'm sort of expecting 3-4 seeds to fall.

06-21-2011, 09:46 PM
uhm.. you pick Bolelli over Stan and Lu over Troicki?!?! :spit: :lol:

06-21-2011, 09:47 PM
Baghdatis and quite a few spaniards there

06-21-2011, 09:47 PM
(16)nicolas almagro v.s john isner

Uh, ok. :wavey::wavey:

06-21-2011, 10:18 PM
Verdasco,Chela,Almagro...Baghdatis why not?

Raonic, Simon, GGL, Soderling, Mayer, Almagro, Chela, Verdasco

06-21-2011, 10:44 PM
Wawrinka could have some big problems with Bolelli.

Almagro could definitely face danger with big Johnny Isner.

Seppi could pose a problem for Baghdatis on grass for sure.

Chela to keep making his comeback in slams this year!

06-21-2011, 10:49 PM
Which seeds are in danger in round 2?

Almagro, Baghdatis, Ferrer, Soderling and Del Potro

06-21-2011, 11:02 PM
uhm.. you pick Bolelli over Stan and Lu over Troicki?!?! :spit: :lol:

bolelli definately has the game to beat stan, its just all bout the head for him

lu is a grass courter and viktor's game doesnt translate to the surface well at all

06-21-2011, 11:08 PM
I can see Del Potro, Raonic, Fish, Mayer and Simon losing

I think Simon has the highest chance of getting beat

I personally don't think Lu, Beck or Bolelli will win

Muller should beat Raonic if he's on his game.

I think Sela has a 50-50 shot at the very least with Simon and that's a good match-up for Dudi, especially on grass.

Haase has a real shot v Verdasco if he serves well and is consistent enough. Remember, Nando just played 4 hours less than 24 hours ago.

I think Beck is the favorite over GGL, I think Tursunov or Gulbis will have a real shot v Melzer, and I think Isner is the favorite over Almagro, Malisse is the favorite over Mayer and Seppi is the favorite over Baghdatis.

Don't be surprised to see Kunitsyn and Zemlja give battles to the two Frenchman Gasquet and Monfils respectively.

Fish will beat Istomin.

06-22-2011, 02:33 AM
Almagro and Mayer

06-22-2011, 02:38 AM
I'm confused as to why people are giving Bolelli a good chance against Wawrinka. Stan is a top 16 seed and decent on grass (2 x R4 at Wimbledon) while Bolelli is a lucky loser.

Because Simone is Simone.

06-22-2011, 02:51 AM
Raonic and Berdych..

06-22-2011, 02:53 AM
^^ I concede, your argument is just too powerful. Simone stuns Stan in style.
