Which player is most prone to an upset?

Everyone suffers an upset from a lower-ranked player. But some are more susceptible than others. Who are the most prone?

Why is it that the world never remembered the name of Johann Gambolputty de von Ausfern-

i would have said patty but she seems to have overcome that a problem a bit. she has runs where she loses eg from roland garros her losses where to asagoe, a then lower ranked sharapova, gagliardi, frazier, kostanic, harkleroad. she got it together though lately losing to kuznetsova and serena.

I didn't include her (Maria) in the poll because I don't believe her game is up there with the top 10 players at the moment (well, it is, but only on a few surfaces).

Lemonskin didn't put Masha up there because she is a favorite of his and she will get the most votes

I just put who I thought are pretty much the top 10 best players AT THE MOMENT (not necessarily on the rankings)

No I didnt put her there because she's not at the same level as the top 10 girls at the moment so an upset is more likely/less disastrous

Serena is to me the least prone to an upset. Justine is prone to an uspset, even when she was dominating tennis, because she often plays not really well during her first round.
My answer is Sharapova and Dementieva. And maybe Mauresmo because she's number 1, and so every time she loses it's supposed to be an upset.

I think Elena D and Maria....or Myskina. Serena as everybody said, is the least likely. Serena hasn´t had a bad bad bad loss in years.

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

Well said about serena, even after a long lay off the lowest ranked player she lost to was maria who was outside the top ten at the time.
Lindsay very rarely loses to players she shouldn't.
Dementieva is one player i never predict result wise, she can beat just about anyone and lose to just about anyone too.
Jen too seems to go walk abouts several times, has lost to the likes of dechy, danilidou, likhoseteva (sp)

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.
