Tipsarevic vs Nalbandian - I don't know why they keep doing this shit to David :mad: but I hope he gets revenge.

Tomic vs Nishikori - I hope Nishikori wipes the floor with Tomug and he smashes a racquet after he loses again.

Tsonga vs Bellucci - I'm hoping for Bellucci to take the first set and have a hilarious choke :D

Murray and Wawrinka will be decent I guess. I think it will be too easy for Murray though.

These are the standouts to me:

Wawrinka - Murray
Goffin - Monaco
Tomic - Nishikori
Nalbandian - Tipsarevic

given Nishikori's current form that one more likely to be among the worst 1st round matches rather the the best ones.

Wawrinka - Murray
Goffin - Monaco
Tomic - Nishikori
Nalbandian - Tipsarevic

I was thinking actually of that Monaco-Goffin match.

Tomic - Nishi.

This is like the 5th time we've seen Tipsarevic-Nalbandian this year. I'd rather see Ungur-Muller, at this point.

If Dodig brings his balls-out giant killer game, Dodig-Delpo.

I think Wawa vs Murray depending on how Wawa plays.

I wish Nishikori was playing better because I'd love for him to shut Tomic up.

Of course Wawrinka/Murray is the marque match but I voted Tipsarevic-Nalbandian. Best 2-of-3 keeps fitness out of it and time has passed since The Kick so I could see Nalby pulling the upset.

Murray/Wawrinka, but Nalby/Tipsy is close.

Some interesting ones:

Nalbandian vs Tipsarevic

Tomic vs Nishikori

Wawrinka vs Murray

Del Potro vs Dodig

Tomic - Nishi.

My thoughts exactly but I still rank it as one of the most interesting.

Coupled with Wawa - Muzza, these should be the top3 matches, no doubt.

Maybe the "wild"Nalbandian Vs Tipsa:worship:

Tsonga should comfortably win in straights against Bellucci. Looking forward to David's 'revenge', we all know he's a different animal when playing under the flag of his country. Wawrinka-Murray could certainly be interesting if Stan is playing at a decent level and with good confidence.

These are the standouts to me:

Wawrinka - Murray
Goffin - Monaco
Tomic - Nishikori
Nalbandian - Tipsarevic

I don't see how Goffin-Monaco fits in that list, a still unproven and, for now, overrated player against an in-form, yet terrible on the surface, one. Plenty of better matches in 1R action IMO.

Troicki vs Almagro. The eventual winner vs the 11th seed in the 1st round. It doesn't get much better than that :worship:

Tsonga - Bellucci for me.

I've watched several Muzza-Waw matches and it's not an exciting prospect for me. Nalbandian - Tipsy will be a choking nightmare imo and Tipsy will take it with some 20 UEs less. (there won't be line judges due to the security measures, only hawk eye).

The exciting for me matches except my favorit above are -

Dimitrov - Kubot (will be much tougher than their recent encounter)
Tomic - Nishikori (bamos Nishi)
Dodig - Del Pony
Cilic - Melzer

This is my personal top 5 and i expect Tsonga, Dimitrov, Nishikori, Dodig (not a fan but feels like a perfect set up for drama) and Melzer to make it.

It's never a bad day when such a spectacle materializes.

Erased that from my memory, care to explain?

All I know is, these are the olympics, and who won gold there the last time?

Falla choking against Fed will be terribly NID, but good to watch nonetheless.
