Actually there are quite a bunch of good players out there who could upset anyone in the first round...

Gonzalez, Nieminen, Ljubicic, Blake, Arazi, Chela... plus the ones already mentioned

Wow! Ljubicic is unseeded?
Escudé is going to be a tough draw for any seeded player, but it would surely make an interesting match. Todd Reid is doing well as well. And Raemon Sluiter, I think, is not doing too bad either. Karol Kucera too, of course!

Yeah, Ljubicic just missed seeding by a few places, so he'll be quite a dangerous floater, unless several people pull out before the AO starts.

jtipson, could be possible.... El-Aynaoui and Coria are a couple of big ?????s right now.

Hmmm...maybe González, Youzhny, Feli López, Costa, etc.

If one of them are seeded, sorry....I'm not good on seeds' stuff. :p

Feña wouldnt make an ideal first round opponent

*Ljubica*

Yes, Ljubicic will be a highly dangerous floater, - no one will want to see his name against theirs in the 1st round.

Good choices everyone.

In addition to those listed previously, Fabrice Santoro can be dangerous, (especially for tall Russian US Open winners ;) ). And Sargis Sargsian wasn't much fun for a certain tall American US Open winner at last years Roland Garros!

Sargsian and Fabrice are obviously very dangerous opponents, but it is safe to say that no match will be really easy. Every year, things seem to get closer and the men's tennis broadens.

oh yeah I forgot FS...anyway Coo is right no match is going to be a breeze ....unless the players all draw their respective bitches ;), even then.....

Good luck Ljubicic!

Yes, I was just gonna add him. ;)

Lee: you see! I'm not good on the seeds knowledge :o

Scott Draper

Is Draper even playing? I thought he had pulled out. Maybe I'm thinking of someone else though.

Nadal? *hoping he's not a seeded player* :rolls:

Leo he's #35 on the entry ranking.. just missed seeding.

J. Corwin
