1 Novak Djokovic (Serbia)
2 Rafa Nadal (Spain)
3 Roger Federer (Switzerland)
4 Andy Murray (Britain)
5 David Ferrer (Spain)
6 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (France)
7 Tomas Berdych (Czech Republic)
8 Mardy Fish (US)
9 Janko Tipsarevic (Serbia)
10 Nicolas Almagro (Spain)
11 Juan Martin Del Potro (Argentina)
12 Gilles Simon (France)
13 Alexandr Dolgopolov (Ukraine)
14 Gael Monfils (France)
15 Andy Roddick (US)
16 John Isner (US)
17 Richard Gasquet (France)
18 Feliciano Lopez (Spain)
19 Viktor Troicki (Serbia)
20 Florian Mayer (Germany)
21 Stanislas Wawrinka (Switzerland)
22 Fernando Verdasco (Spain)
23 Milos Raonic (Canada)
24 Kei Nishikori (Japan)
25 Juan Monaco (Argentina)
26 Marcel Granollers (Spain)
27 Juan Ignacio Chela (Argentina)
28 Ivan Ljubicic (Croatia)
29 Radek Stepanek (Czech Republic)
30 Kevin Anderson (South Africa)
31 Jurgen Melzer (Austria)
32 Alex Bogomolov Jr (US)

We must wait few days for draw, but when we look who where can be than definitely Raonic at 23 is good that he will avoid in R32 top 8, from 9-16 he can beat anyone. Hope for Isner-Raonic R32:D
from 25-32 seedes there is nobody who can normally challenge top 8. Maybe if Ljubicic or Anderson have great serve day can upset somebody out of form like Fish. BTW funny how low is Melzer former top 10 player... I still donīt get it he has such high career high ranking like he has.

From 13-16th seeded in R4 for big 4 there is no danger i think too. Dolgo possibly injured, Roddick donīt know what form he has, but donīt expect from him much, Isner is tough customer, but they should beat him in few TBīs. Monfils if will not clowning arround but play some tennis can be tough but not the one who will take 3 sets from either of them.

I see JMDP in quaters for sure. With a Nadal in quaters he can make even more.
Milos got lucky, he will not play vs top 8 in R3.

Apparently Mayer withdrew. So do these players seeded below him go one place up or are they going to do that #33 seed thing?

The draw hasn't been done yet, so everyone below Mayer will move up one seeding spot if he does pull out.

Ok, thanks. :)
I thought since they announced it, maybe they won't change it between those guys who got their seedings.

Not sure Raonic has shown enough to be that confident. Getting 3 sets off JMDP for instance won't be easy. Similarly Monfils when he is on is a tricky customer. Really can't see beyond him, Isner, Monfils & JMDP as seeds that the top 4 wouldn't want to face. The rest, from no.8 onwards (including Fish) should be pretty beatable in a best of 5. Potentially Dolgo could do something but again I'm not sure I see it being kept up for 3 sets vs the top 6.

I am very interested to see which of the top 4 seeds Isner and Monfils draw.

For three quick sets he doesn't need stamina that much ;)

Delpo is an overrated ballbasher that cant touch Nadal on slow hardcourt...........Nadal will work him all day left and right

Good for Richard. He avoids the top 4 in fourth round if he can beat a 9-16 in the third.

Saberq you're fascinating every single member of this forum with your wise and appropriate comments which make so much sense.... I'm really really sure about that :)

In fact It's not cool to call everybody a ballbasher or to even call members to shut the fuck up...

What have you reached in your life? Are you ranked #14 in the world? Have you earned 1.8 Million Dollars by making your hobby as a regular job?

You should rather try to establish yourself in this forum by writing convincing arguments :)

Please - I think everybody would appreciate it - think about your thoughts before you actually post them. A bit more sensibility and rationality would definitely help you :)

You can either laugh at me for posting that or think about it and as a quintessence post things that actually make sense and help the topic develop itself and to have a nice and not a non-sense discussion :wavey:

He has only pulled out of Sydney

He is still trying to recover in the next week

Still in the 32 seeds

Someone posted in the AO entry list thread that he's out. :shrug:

Feliciano Lopez is also doubtful.

Before his injury, delpo won three matches in a row against Rafa. Including Miami, aka the slowest harcourt in the world.

Besides, he did trouble him two months ago, on a slow clay court.

That sounds beautiful - glad I'm not a guy who needs to show off everything he's got in life, where he's been, what he's doing...

Discussion ends here - if you look for non-sense discussions as before just leave the forum ;)

And definitely I don't need to talk with you about lifestyle etc. - as if I'd be looking to have civil talks with people I don't even know :p

Just stay where you are and have a great life :wavey:

Agreed, result would be the same as in the Davis cup final. Also his serve is a joke for his height, i definetly don't see him coming back to his 2009 level where he actually had stamina.
And don't tell me he lost the stamina because of the injury.

Mayer isn't out, at least not out yet.

Few more @AustralianOpen men withdrawals: Robredo - leg, Devvarman - shoulder. Speedy recovery! Now in: Gimeno-Traver, Lorenzi #ausopen
(posted about an hour ago)

Oh and Tiley is the tournament director of the AO so he should know best who withdrew and who didn't ;)

Nadal's draw: R3 some from group ( Lopez, Troicki, Verdasco, Nishikori, Monaco, Granollers, Chela, Melzer, Bogomolov ) , R4 (Fixy, Almagro, Simon, Dolgopolov ) QF ( Fish or Ferrer ) . In every group chances are somewhere around 50% and I am sure he'll make it 3/3 . You can freely mark my post
