Including Nadal and Wawrinka both with toughest road :rolls: and the pretty wild pick of Raonic as champion. I think Wilansky has got it pretty close though, and Drysdale's and Caple's are reasonable as well.

Did Mary Joe Fernandez get fired for picking Rafa in every tournament? He is got a lucky husband though ... living off Roger's name and all :) Bodo picking Raonic tells you all you need to know about him

To be fair, that's a ridiculous sleeper pick.
''He beat Nadal at Wimbledon and can now face him in R3 and might take him out again, HURRRRRRRRRRRRRR DURRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR''

Marginal favorite in the first round and will go out in the second.

Rosol has made the second round at the AO once. He is awful on slow hard, he is one of those players who likes it either very slow/high bouncing or very fast.

+ A week ago it was looking very likely that he wasn't going to play at all. I'm sure his preparation has been bad.

Rosol isn't that bad of a sleeper pick. Nadal has been in horrible shape and not that unlikely Rosol reaches him. Yet his preparation hasn't been great.

Kohlschreiber was a worse pick. He seems to be in very bad form.

Like usual most play it safe and pick Djokovic

Not that you'd expect anything else, but ...... jesus Christ. Anyone who "picks" anyone other than Djokovic should never work as a commentator again.

As for "toughest road", not one of those selected has a bad draw - look at the markets, their prices barely moved since the draw came out.

Sleeper must be someone outside of the top sixteen seeds, if we're playing according to ESPN's rules.

Champion: Djokovic
Toughest Road: Nishikori
Sleeper: Monfils

Ah, sorry. I'll go with Goffin then, think he might beat Dimitrov.

Always thought Bodo is a smart guy.

I was wrong.
