Re: AO draw discussion thread - Listen to the draw live on AO Radio tonight at 2300 G

I'd say the five most dangerous 1st round opponents for the seeds would be...

Malisse
Tsonga
Kiefer (if he's fit)
Safin
Llodra

If Federer draws one of them, it might get interesting :cool:

I hope Safin gets a good draw, I really do.
He could play the seven dwarfs, one round after another and he still wouldn't win it.

Heck, he could even be drawn to play 7 Xristos clones and he wouldn't win it.
