qualifiers are placed, who goes farthest do you think? (i've highlighted my own picks)

James Duckworth - Leonardo Mayer in round 1, Pospisil or Gabashvili(likely gaba) in round 2, Nadal in round 3

Laurent Lokoli - Steve Johnson in round 1, Almagro in round 2, probably Haas in round 3 but could also be Lajovic/Del Bonis winner

Andreas Haider-Mauer - Daniel Brands in round 1, Dimitrov in round 2, Anderson would be his seed in round 3 but it could be Robert waiting instead

Simone Bolelli - Arnaboldi in round 1, Ferrer in round 2, Should be Giraldo in round 3

Andrea Arnaboldi - Simone Bolelli in round 1 and then the same as above

Damir Dzumhur - Feliciano lopez in round 1, Sela or Young in round 2, Wawrinka in round 3

Andreas Beck - Fabio fognini in round 1, bellucci or becker in round 2, monfils is the seed in round 3 but there's no guarantee he'll get there, wawrinka should be in round 4

Peter polansky - Tomas Berdych in round 1, Nedovyesov or devarmann in round 2, Bautista-agut is the seed in round 3

Paolo Lorenzi - roberto bautista-agut in round 1, Paire or falla in round 2, berdych is the seed in round 3

James ward - Tommy Robredo in round 1, Montanes or De Schepper in round 2, seed in round 3 is Isner

Facundo Bagnis - julien benneteau in round 1, gulbis or kubot in round 2, seed in the 2rd round is youzhny, seed in the 4th round is federer

Potito Starace - dmitry tursunov in round 1, volandri or querrey in round 2, seed in round 3 is gulbis, seed in 4th round is federer

Gastao elias - Diego schwartzman in round 1, federer in round 2, seed in 3rd round is tursunov

Diego schwartzman - gastao elias in round 1 then same as above

Ante Pavic - Gilles simon in round 1, gonzalez or russell in round 2, seed in 3rd round is raonic

Miloslav mecir - tobias kamke in round 1, chardy or gimeno traver in round 2, seed in 3rd round is djokovic

1. damir might be able to get by lopez and in that case the 3rd round would be wide open for him

2. first of all i think its unfair that every time he qualifies he draws a seed or one of the better unseeded players. If he gets past fognini he can make the 4th round

3. 3rd round possible for sure

4. robredo should be to much for him but tommy's been horrible this year. 3rd round maybe?

5. getting past tursunov in round 1 is possible and that opens up possibly a 4th round with who he has to play in round 2 and the fact that gulbis might not even make it out of round 1

6. probably the most realistic draw for the qualifier to make a 3rd round

im predicting lokoli, elias and bolelli to win their first rounds but lose in the 2nd

I have Robredo hitting form this tournament unfortunately for Ward. Looking at the draws I'm thinking Beck and Starace are good picks. I would say Bagnis could maybe benefit from successive headcases but I don't think he has the weapons to get past Benneteau/Gulbis unless they full on implode.

Dzumhur or Beck if the bad versions of Lopez and Fognini show up
