I know who is the Dark Pony . . .

Anyway, toss up between Monfils, Haas and Starace and there are already threads on this.

I can see Karlovic and his monster serve going far, but I think Wawrinka has a pretty good chance too.

What do you mean by saying "dark horse"? Is it someone who will:

1) win the tournament?
2) reach a certain phase of this tournament (ex. QF or higher)?
3) trouble or beat Federer or other main favourite?

A little bit of each adler...

It most likely that the main players will be in the latter stages, but there is normally always one or two who suprise and reache the QF.

So to answer your question i think QF or higher for any of the above players.

Personally i would love it if X-man finally showed his true potential and reached a semi of a slam...

that would be great

If you can predict who a dark horse will be then that player is no longer a dark horse. By definition the player needs to surprise you.

I'd love to see Wawrinka finally make the last 8 at a Slam. If he can get his head together and bring the high level of tennis we know he is capable of producing, and with a decent draw, who knows, he might just surprise.

OK, if so, then:

1) no, I don't think any of players considered as only good will win AO
2) yes, Gulbis, O.Rochus and Chela can reach QF or better
3) no, I guess Top 3 and Nalbandian are on another level right now

no, I just like precision
