AO 4R: Pick you Upset

The majority correctly pegged Venus Williams and Sam Stosur as the most likely to be upset in 3R.
Wozniacki continues to defy a general lack of confidence in her ability to go deep and is still around.

So, who is your pick for a 4R upset?

[1]Wozniacki vs [46]Sevastova - Wozniacki has yet to lose a set and Sevastova continues to take advantage of an opening up draw.

[2]Zvonareva vs [60]Benesova - Iveta has never been this far in a slam and has been playing well. Zvonareva has tamed her emotions it seems, even when the sets have gotten tense.

[3]CLijsters vs [49]Makarova - Even when Clijsters is playing poorly she still wins in straight sets. Makarova is showing her win over Ivanovic in 1R was no fluke.

[30]Petkovic vs [14]Sharapova - Petkovic has been on form this season but the withdrawal of Venus last round means her ability close out an important match deep in a slam remains untested. Sharapova appears to bring out the double faults every second match - this means few of them in this match which could be important.

[25]Kvitova vs [22]Pennetta - Petra has been playing sublimely in Melbourne, especially last round against Stosur. Pennetta was a bit of a surprise in beating Peer. I'd be inclined to say Pennetta winning this match would be the upset, contrary to their rankings.

[6]Schiavone vs [23]Kuznetsova - Schiavone has powered through to the 4R despite not looking especially sharp. Kuznetsova emerged as the best of a sorry lot in beating Henin last round.

[54]Peng vs [12]Radwanska - Peng has been playing good tennis. Relatively few errors in the last round, yet she still managed to lose a set to Morita. Radwanska showed no signs of her injuries is burying Halep in the last round.

[8]Azarenka vs [9]Li - Azarenka continues to look lacklustre, yet has still advanced to the 4R. Li has looked like a contender. Based on current form, I'd consider an Azarenka win the upset here.

What do you think?

Re: AO 4R: Pick you Upset

Peng will beat Radwanska in straights, I don't see kuzzy beating fran as an upset, kuzzy is better. Azarenka vs. Li is a toss up as well, these are all upsets based on rankings but the matches really could go either way in a few here. Kuzzy, petra, and Shuai are favorites in their matches I think.

Hantuchova Dokic
Petkovic Li Clijsters Jankovic Lisicki
Kvitova Wawrinka Gasquet Nalbandian

Re: AO 4R: Pick you Upset

Azarenka vs Li is a toss-up anyway, so regardless of whoever wins, I wouldn't call it an upset I wouldn't call Svetlana beating Fran an upset either.

I could see Petra pulling off the upset, but that's about it.

Pennetta/Kvitova is tomorrow. Wozniacki starts in 90 minutes.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Re: AO 4R: Pick you Upset

I actually think Sharapova will win the title unfortunately, so I can't see her losing today.

As for upsets, I think the only one that will happen is Peng beating Radwanska.

If Kuzy wins I wouldn't consider it an upset. Same with Li against Azarenka.
