Question Dark Horse Picks for Australian Open

Who are your 5 darkhorse picks for the Australian Open (players outside of the top 10 seeds (Lindsay, Amelie, Nastya, Maria, Sveta, Elena, Serena, Venus, Vera and Alicia) that you think have a legit shot of making the quarterfinals / semis) ???

Mine:

Patty Schnyder - last year's semifinalist is in great form picking up a title at Gold Coast



Tatiana Golovin - Will be looking to improve on last year's fourth round performance



Dinara Safina - seems to have refound her game with a whipping of Sugiyama last week



Na Li - with a good draw (not the #1 seed for the third consecutive tournament !!!)



Nicole Vadisova - if she has recovered from her illness, should get to at least the round of 16

Petrova, Bovina and Sesil Karatantcheva.

I know it's a tall order, but I hope Sania Mirza makes a good run... 3rd/R16 even?

Why Haynes?? She wins 2 matches in a row at the US Open and people think that she is the best player in the world... she doesnt have a chance at the Aussie Open
