i'd agree about florian mayer if adrian wasnt in such crappy form and possibly not 100% himself

Davydenko over Dodig (Nikolay is struggling, but this is a very winnable match, Dodig retired in Cincy)
Qualifier over Tipsarevic (Janko can lose to anyone and I can see the pressure of being top 20 in a slam and expectations getting to him)
Malisse over Granollers
Harrison over Cilic (expecting a Harrison win)
Kohlschreiber over Stepanek (Kohli is good enough to win here and be very dangerous, but I personally don't think he will)
Falla over Troicki
Nieminen over Verdasco
Matosevic over Chela
Andreev over Ferrer (David not sharp and questionable fitness, Igor coming off a good tournament in North Carolina)
Mannarino over Mayer
Benneteau over Almagro
Gulbis over Youzhny
Kavcic over Ljubicic (Ljubo unfit, bad record at this event)

Upsets

- nikolay davydenko v.s (32) ivan dodig
- (31)marcel granollers v.s xavier malisse - surprised nobody picked this one. Marcel's ranking is based off good clay results so X would mess it up and play well here.

cilic doesnt really lose to a lot of players ranked lower than him,hes biggest problem is he struggles against top 20 players

Along with the ones above, Isner, Nando, Granollers, perhaps Gasquet and Dodig.
Granollers
Malisse over Granollers

Thanks for the jinxes for Marcel! :hug: I'm not too optimistic too anyway. :sad: I think Malisse is bad match up for him and Marcel is coming back from arm injury. Plus he hasn't played yet on these courts in this year.


Also, Dodig, Cilic, Isner (esp if he wins today), Mayer (since he has bad form) have chance to lose. Though I'm not sure Almagro wins over Benneteau.

Sorry, I'm a Malisse fan :p ;) It should be a close encounter though, and Marcel is still the slim favourite :)

I see he has nice place on your sig. :angel: I also read somewhere you dislike Marcel. Don't you? :p

But I think if Malisse will play better than so far at this US Open Series, he would win for reasons listed above.

Don't mind him, played some really good tennis a few weeks back, just not a fan of his grunt :lol: :angel:

Anyway, may the best man win! :tennis: Good luck to you :)
