The EVE of the 1st Slam of the Year: Upset City!!

Ok, THE AO is well know on the men's and womens tour as Upset City, mainly b/c most of the key players are not as sharp as they would be say, mid March or so.

Federer has ask that this tournament be moved to March! LOL.
Anywho....

Give me your Upset Picks. (Please excuse if this has been done already)

That wouldn't be an upset in my book. I wouldn't be surprised if Groenefeld or Hantuchova got turned over early b/c they are pretty unreliable.

Hantuchova is by no means as bad as Groenefeld.

So please don't put them in the same category.

Thanks.

Happy to put Groenefeld in Unreliability Division 1 and Hantuchova in Unreliability Division 2!

Incidentally, I like both players and wish them well.

Dani is fairly reliable at slams. The last time she did not reach a slam R3 was FO 2004 (not including 06 USO when she got Serena R2)
