Which are the seeded players everyone is hoping to draw at the AO?

Almost every time when a major is about to begin, the bad form of some high-ranked players is a great opportunity for dark horses or unseeded players to go far in the tournament. The higher the seed, the more interesting it is to draw him and steal his part of the draw. Who do you think has the best high-seed/bad form ratio coming into the AO?

To me it has to be Fish. The guy has been transparent ever since the USO. He didn't umbarrass himself at the WTF though he never really looked like much of a threat either, but he looked like utter shit at the Hopman cum last week where he should have wiped the flour with the competition in his group. He's spearheading a whole eighth of the draw at the AO, and I don't see anyone that's looking like a better bargain if you're a lower-ranked player and you want to open the draw.

Well looking at today's rankings:

Top 8 will want to avoid Raonic in R3.
Top 4 will want to avoid Tsonga in the QF the most.
5-8 will want to avoid Del Potro R4.
Top 4 will want to avoid Monfils R4.

That's the low ranked players top player want to avoid. I'm asking about the opposite :p. Top players unseeded guys WANT to play.

Agreed. Think Mayer & Monaco would be okay too for some lower ranked players...

According to topspinnurse nadal wants Raonic in R3 . nadal eats no movement clowns

I think Fed would rather play Tsonga than Berdych

I think top 1-8 will want to avoid Delpo

Top 4 won't have anything against in playing Monflis in R4

Adding to that:

Top 4 will want to avoid Isner in R4 (he hasn't played so far this year, will play Auckland next week, but is for sure one who can trouble the top guys).

Out of the unseeded guys, I would say these are the most dangerous:
Tomic
Kohlschreiber
Baghdatis
Muller
Karlovic

Agree with these + Monaco, Chela, and maybe even Granollers and Mayer.

Ah? He only lost against a very brilliant Berdych so I didn't see any evidence in this tournament that he will not doing well in AO (doing well for me= 4th round).

He beat Wu Di and the match against Hewitt was pretty rubbish. Depends on his draw, he seems to get overpowered easily these days. The depth of his rally groundstrokes is just inadequate,

I don't expect him to make quarters...

20 replies and nobody said Bogomolov Jr yet

(although that's partly because people can't read and are answering the complete opposite question)
