If any it should be Blake over Del Potro, depends on how big that DelPo's injury really is.

Largely because of Delpo's apparent injury, Blake the most likely, though it's not particularly likely, as he's done jack-all recently. Then I'd say Korolev, just because Berdych has a talent for losing to anybody.

I think none will happen, but if anyone, it's Blake over Del Potro

Lacko over Nadull

Blake over Del Potro if Pony is still struggling is the one I think is likely.

I also see a possibility of Dent over Tsonga, as much as I want to see Jo roll on through to the second week. Too many problems with big servers in the past to make me entirely comfortable about the match up.

Finally, I think Young over Hewitt is an outside shot.

Blake won't beat Del Potro.Hm... pretty tough. But I'd say no upsets.

Would say none but if Dent's serving well I think he might cause Tsonga a few headaches. I hope not but Tsonga hasn't been great against guys with a big serve, eg Karlovic, Guccione and Isner.

Murray better watch Gicquel.

Will happen? I don't know if any of them WILL happen, but I do think Korolev and Blake have chances. Bellucci could win a set/be a little dangerous also. That is about it.

As for me, I like all of these match-ups.
My picks for these matches:
- Federer over Hanescu (it's clear) in 4 sets (I think if Igor could do it, then Victor has got a chance for a set)
- Blake over Del Potro in 4 sets (I believe.....)
- Roddick over Bellucci in 3 sets (but with close scoreline like 7-6 6-4 7-5)
- Tsonga over Dent in 4 sets (great tennis from both, but Taylor won't be able to maintain his best tennis for 5 sets)
- Berdych over Korolev in 5 sets (Birdman wins in a style like 6-4 6-7 2-6 7-5 6-2)
- Murray over Gicquel in 4 easy sets like 7-5 6-2 3-6 6-2
- Cilic over Tomic in 4 sets like 2-6 7-5 6-1 6-3 (Atomic Bomb on fire in 1st set, but then too much pressure on him)
- Hewitt over Young in 3 sets (one close set, others will be complete humiliation)

Probably none, but a faint possibility that Young might take out Hewitt

01-19-2010, 04:28 PM
Blake over Juan is possible depending on Juan's injury and Blake's level

01-19-2010, 04:35 PM
Hopefully Dent and Blake, most likely:Korolev

Blake and Tomic will both have their shots

Blake over Del Potro. :hearts:

Korolev vs Berdych is a coin toss, both are capable of giving Jerkyll & Hyde performance.
Tsonga vs a big server, that's worrisome.
Bellucci has a chance, I watched his match against Berdych like a week or 2 ago, he wasn't half bad. So I'm gonna go for this match. In reality, it's more a wishful thinking than prediction.
