View Full Version : AO 4R: Pick you Upset

Jan 22nd, 2011, 08:41 PM
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?

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.

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

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

Franny to beat Kuzzy

These 4 are my picks: Sharapova, Pennetta, Schiavone and Radwanska.

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.
