Re: What's the most interesting 1R encounter?
There's a bunch of great first rounders actually.
Kim-Safina just for name recognition - last time we had this big a first round (accomplishment-wise) was it Henin-Martinez at RG?
Groth-Wickmayer. Both could be darkhorse Quarterfinalists really, and both did well in the leadup events; but one of them will flame out early.
Caro-Dulko. Probably wont be as interesting as most people think, but Dulko's beaten some big names in Slams and Woz has looked shaky early on this year.
