Surprise Packages of the Aus Open
In most Grand Slams there are at least one or two players that surprise the world and get farther than anyone thought. Who do you predict?
My tips for surprise results in the Australian Open maindraw include Emilie Loit, Lisa Raymond and Anna Chakvetadze.
Surprise qualifiers i reckon will be Amanda Janes, Hanna Nooni and Libuse Prusova.
