draw (http://www.usopen.org/en_US/scores/draws/qs/index.html?promo=topnav)

pick 1 player from each section (16 in total)

points:
4 points for each player who qualifies (plus 1 extra point if he did so without losing a single set)
2 points for each player who loses in the final round
1 point for each player who loses in the 2nd round
no points for losing in round 1

in case of tie: the higher number of correct qualifiers gives the edge

Tomic (questionable about this. I don't think it's going to be Dodig. I want to say Boggo but I can't back him)

Ram

Beck (please prove me right, Karol)

Roger-Vasselin

Bolelli (possibly the easiest draw of all seeded players)

Zemlja (look at for the youngster Ignatik, and potentially Mahut)

Sergeyev

Zverev (please prove me right here Mischa. No reason you can't make it)

Berankis

Niland (cannot believe I'm saying this, but I have a gut feeling he'll beat Harrison)

Ito

Nishikori (tough draw though, a loss wouldn't be surprising)

Fischer

Koubek

Peya

Yani (I hope for Marc, but he's given me no reason to believe he can do it)

thanks for the stats :cool:

Kendrick has an easy section...on paper atleast

Filo V.
08-24-2010, 07:19 PM
I saw everyone picking Kendrick, I am 100% sure Ito will beat him if they play. 100% sure. I really hope Fede makes it out of that section, though.

Also, people picking Filip? That's a mistake. He is one of the least likely to qualify in the entire draw, in my opinion.

That 7th section is WIDE open for anyone to win. Van Der Merwe has the form but can he bring it on the big stage? Millot is the safest pick there. Ungur is more of a clay player but he has the talent to do well.

The 3rd section is also very open for anyone to win. Beck-Matosevic may decide who makes it from that group. Gonzalez-Polansky and Skugor-Salamanca are matches that are hard to predict.

The last section is similarly open for anyone to win. Neither of the two Brazilian seeds are playing great, and Yani isn't playing too well himself. Gicquel is the best player in that section, but he's coming back from injury.

To me, the section that is the most set in stone is the 9th. Berankis is the major favorite from that section.

if benoit paire can translate his claycourt skills to hardcourts, weve got one hell of a player.

True. I think he can. He's got a lot of raw talent. It will be interesting to see how he does here.

What makes you say that? I am curious. If you are correct, the key for Ito is today's R2 (assuming Kendrick also wins R2).
I like your prediction, though. Only five people picked Ito, including you and myself.:worship:
