The logical sleeper pick would be Nishikori.

Has positive H2H against the 2 major seeds in his side of the draw (Cilic - Tsonga)

Mine

Win: Djokovic
Sleeper: Monaco (Can beat Roddick, Nalbandian, del Potro, and Seppi I think, as weird as it feels to say him. Though if Ferrer loses early, look out for Haas)
Toughest Road: Isner

This. I expeted BG to pick anyone-but-Fed! Cincy must have really made a big impact for him, idk why i think the draw is more relevant here and Novak didnt even give full energy to Cincy.

No love for a weaponless pusher who managed to win a whole set in all of his 4 slam finals? What a surprise!

I'll be happy if at least 1 American makes the semis, but I'm not even sure Isner can get to the quarters.

Cahill is the most accurate picker so far, followed by Evert who picked the correct winners on the last 2 slams. Let's see who is the more accurate picker this time.

Ooh, Nishikori has beaten Cilic the last two times they met (one being at the US Open in a 5 set match). Come onnnnnnnn.

And he beat Tsonga both times they met

Those are experts? The only person to possibly listen to is Cahill.
