Day 3 - upsets

Rank the seeded players: who has the biggest chance to loose in R2? Use 1-5 points system. 1 point means that the possibility is very small, on the opposite 5 means big possibility.

Radwanska (4) - Begu : 1/5
Stosur (9) - Zheng : 3/5
V.Williams (25) - Cornet : 2/5 (you never know with her health nowadays)
Li (6) - Govortsova : 2/5
Sharapova (2) - Doi : 1/5
Kerber (5) - Hradecka : 2/5
Goerges (18) - Oprandi : 3/5
Ivanovic (13) - Chan : 2/5
Cibulkova (15) - Savinykh : 2/5
Jankovic (22) - Koehler : 2/5
Paszek (30) - Keys : 4/5
Bartoli (11) - Dolonc : 2/5
Zakopalova (23) - Flipkens : 3/5
Makarova (19) - Foretz : 2/5
Cirstea (27) - Pliskova : 4/5

Re: Day 3 - upsets

Radwanska (4) - Begu : 1/5 (Aga might get tired at some point in this tournament but not in this round)
Stosur (9) - Zheng : 4/5 (well, it's Stosur)
V.Williams (25) - Cornet : 1/5 (Cornet has absolutely nothing to hurt Venus with)
Li (6) - Govortsova : 1/5 (Li is simply too good atm)
Sharapova (2) - Doi : 1/5 (this will surely be NID)
Kerber (5) - Hradecka : 2/5 (Kerber likes error-prone ball bashers - if Lucie has a GOAT day she might have an outside chance though)
Goerges (18) - Oprandi : 3/5 (Görges is inconsistent so you never know)
Ivanovic (13) - Chan : 2/5 (expect Ana to win this rather comfortably)
Cibulkova (15) - Savinykh : 1/5 (Domi showing some good form lately; upset is unlikely imo)
Jankovic (22) - Koehler : 2/5 (OK, maybe 5/5 would be more accurate since we're talking about JJ)
Paszek (30) - Keys : 4/5 (Tamira - HC - upset in the making)
Bartoli (11) - Dolonc : 1/5 (probably an easy win for Marion)
Zakopalova (23) - Flipkens : 3/5 (Kirsten certainly has a chance here but Klara's form has been good as well)
Makarova (19) - Foretz : 2/5 (hard to predict Ekat's matches but still)
Cirstea (27) - Pliskova : 4/5 (depends on how Sori's brain works which means that it might easily be completely out of action)

Funny how this half seems to be sticking together and the top is falling apart already. Normally its the shit half/quarters that fall apart making for epic joke QFs (Errani/Vinci anyone)

Re: Day 3 - upsets

Not going through every match.

Georges has a bad habit of losing to players she shouldn't be and is so erratic, so I rank her as most likely.

Flipkens has been playing well since last fall and Zako can be hot and cold. Thats my 2nd choice.

Despite the seedings, I wouldn't consider Keys beating Paszek an upset.

What's the logic here? Radwanska will get tired but Li won't despite having played more tennis this year and being 7 years older?

Re: Day 3 - upsets

Radwanska (4) v. Begu: No chance, obviously.

Stosur (9) v. Zheng: I'd make this 50/50. Stosur can lose to absolutely anybody in Australia, but she's a really bad match-up for Zheng, and she'll probably be a little more settled than she was in her last match. Still, Zheng beat her last week, so who knows...

V.Williams (25) - Cornet: Cornet is garbage, so even if Sjogrenus shows up, she'll still win in 3.

Li (6) v. Govortsova: Govortsova hasn't done anything in ages, so Li would have to play terrible to lose this.

Sharapova v. Doi: No chance, obviously.

Kerber v. Hradecka: Hradecka in-form is obviously a danger to anybody, but the chances she puts in a good enough performance to give herself a chance in this one are slim to none.

Goerges v. Oprandi: Goerges was a me$$ against Dushevina. She beat Oprandi here last year though and I haven't seen Oprandi plays in years so I have no idea what her ground game is looking like these days, but if all she has is her bag of tricks then I don't think she'll get the upset.

Ivanovic v. Chan : Another NID oppenent for VIP.

Cibulkova v. Savinykh: Savinykh is really average, but if Cibulkova puts in a stinker then a steady performance could be enough to take her out.

Jankovic v. Koehler: Junkovic can lose to anybody these days, and Koehler seems to be playing well, so I'm predicting a her in 3 to prevent the Serbian Sister R3.

Paszek v. Keys: Paszek is the new Grassonkova, and Keys is on the verge of a breakout, so I think she'll take this in 2.

Bartoli v. Dolonc: I think Dolonc will be too up-and-down for Bartoli.

Zakopalova v. Flipkens: Both were in good form in AO lead-ups. Flipkens has a decent shot at the "upset" in 3
Makarova v. Foretz: Meh, no idea really, but Foretz is a non-entity and Makarova always plays well in Australia so I don't see an upset.

Cirstea v. Pliskova: Should be a messy match, and while I think that the blond Pliskova has a decent chance here, you can never rely on the Pliskys to do anything.

Grassonkova.

Re: Day 3 - upsets

Keys isn't really an upset. She's the clear betting fav.

Re: Day 3 - upsets

I think people are underestimating Begu. She ripped Wozniacki last year at USO and breezed through round 1 here. Aga still favorite, obviously, but an upset shouldn't be a total shock given the way Aga keeps her opponent in the point.
