Default Which seeds are in danger of being upset in the first round?

So with the draw out which seeded players do you think could be upset in the first round?

(1) novak djokovic v.s Paolo lorenzi
nicolas mahut v.s (29) radek stepanek
(23)milos raonic v.s filipo volandri
robin hasse v.s (15) andy roddick
(9)janko tipsarevic v.s dmitry tursunov
andreas seppi v.s (17)richard gasquet
(27)juan ignacio chela v.s michael russell
rui machado v.s (5) david ferrer
(4)andy murray v.s ryan harrison
daniel-gimeno traver v.s (32) alex bogomolov jr.
(19) viktor troicki v.s juan carlos ferrero
marinko matosevic v.s (14) gael monfils
stephane robert v.s (24) kei nishikori
(26)marcel granollers v.s jesse levine
denis istomin v.s (6) jo-wilfried tsonga
(8)mardy fish v.s gilles muller
philipp kohlschreiber v.s (25)juan monaco
adrian mannarino v.s (11) juan martin del potro
(13)alexandr dolgopolov v.s greg jones
bernard tomic v.s (22) fernando verdasco
(31)jurgen melzer v.s ivo karlovic
(7)tomas berdych v.s albert ramos
(21)stanislas wawrinka v.s benoit paire
lukas kubot v.s [B](10) nicolas almagro[/b]
(16)john isner v.s benjamin mitchell
leonardo mayer v.s (18)feliciano lopez
(12) gilles simon v.s danai udomchoke
alexander kudryavtsev v.s (3)roger federer
frederik nielsen v.s (30) kevin anderson
alex kuznetsov v.s (2)rafael nadal
(28)ivan ljubicic v.s lukas lacko

only nadal, federer, ljubicic and simon's opponents remain unknown

-robin can beat adny for sure, question is which vcersion of robin will show up and for how long
-Juan carlos can beat viktor..if he's in good form. I expect this match could be a mess though
-mardy is in crap form but so is gilles..its 50/50 for me
-kohli has had a great start to the year in having a tight miatch with nadal and making the semis and possibly further in auckland. He's dangerous if he can carry the form into the AO
-i actually expect bernard to beat fernando here, this is the pick im most sure of
- ivo has never beaten jurgen before but im still feeling like jurgen is ripe for an upset early on, if not by ivo someone else
lukasz has pulled off more than one upset at grand slams before, he seems to wake up for them and the most recent match between the 2 saw lukasz come back from 0-2 in sets down and take nicolas out ot roland garros
- frederik is playing really well and kevin was crap in his one match this season so i think he's vulnerable
- it looks like lukas has decided he cares about tennis again and he's dangerous when he's on

- marcos is in great form this season so this is another one i'd expect the seed to lose.
no matter how hard marcos tries, however, he simply cannot play anderson and becker at the same time.

Taking a stab in the dark here, but I'd say:
Tipsy, A-Rod, Richie, Chela, Marcel, Anderson and Wawrinka.

Default Re: Which seeds are in danger of being upset in the first round?

I predict five sets for Murray, but he won't get knocked out.

Other than that:

Wawrinka
Anderson
Troicki
Kei
Melzer

Long shot - Delpo

I don't understand why people saying here that Verdasco is in danger. Saying that is believing that he actually got a chance of winning.
