you sure about this? Maybe for the french open were upsets are crazy but i feel like the other slams have had some cinsistency in the seeds getting out of the first round.

Hantuchova, K. Bondarenko & Kleybanova are the most likely seeds to go out in R2 IMO.

Id put Caroline and Zheng and sadly hantuchova on my upset list for sure....

Out of players in red only Kuznetsova and Petrova are in danger to be upset. I exclude Kleybanova here cos her loss wouldn't be an upset at all.

yup, i've checked it out ;)
since Wimbledon 2001 when the 32-seed system was introduced, this is the biggest number of seeds through to 2R

I agree with most, but also put Dementieva and Safarova in that list too.

There is no way Zheng will lose to Pivovarova. Her first round was a much tougher opponent.

Not quite. And have you seen her results lately. Some "wtf" losses. Although she made the Final last week in Warsaw, she was gifted a QF and SF with an injured Wozniacki and #204 qualifier that pushed her to 6-4,7-5. And she nearly lost to Govortsova in the 1R with a 7-5 third set victory. I like her a lot, but she has not been the best lately. If she wins her next round I am sure she will lose 3R.

5 Elena Dementieva vs. A. Medina Garrigues RND 2
6 Svetlana Kuznetsova vs. Andrea Petkovic RND 2
14 Flavia Pennetta vs. Roberta Vinci RND 2
21 Vera Zvonareva vs. Anastasia Rodionova RND 2

28 Alisa Kleybanova vs. Ana Ivanovic RND 2
32 Kateryna Bondarenko vs. Aleksandra Wozniak RND 2

Flavia vs Roby is a weird one

Flavia won 1st, 3rd and 5th meets
Roby won 2nd, 4th and 6th one

last 3 have been extremely one sided

Bartoli & Hantuchova are ALWAYS at risk of an upset...especially at a major. :help:

1 Serena Williams vs. Julia Goerges RND 2 - I expect Serena to struggle somewhat again but I can't see her losing this.
2 Venus Williams vs. Arantxa Parra Santonja RND 2 - Easy for Venus
3 Caroline Wozniacki vs. Tathiana Garbin RND 2 - Routine for Caroline
4 Jelena Jankovic vs. Kaia Kanepi RND 2 - Very tough match for Jelena but I still expect her to get through it.
5 Elena Dementieva vs. A. Medina Garrigues RND 2 - Hard to call, I can see Elena winning this easily but then again an upset would not surprise me either.
6 Svetlana Kuznetsova vs. Andrea Petkovic RND 2 - When the draw was made I thought Sveta would lose this match, less sure now as she played well in 1st round but an upset remains a solid possibility.
7 Samantha Stosur vs. Rossana De Los Rios RND 2 - I love Rossana but one has to be realistic and this is an easy win for Sammy.
8 Agnieszka Radwanska vs. Yaroslava Shvedova RND 2 - Slava will have to be at her very best to beat Aga, I don't rule out the possibility but this is still a likely win for Aga.
11 Na Li vs. Stephanie Cohen-Aloro RND 2 - Very routine win for Na.
12 Maria Sharapova vs. Kirsten Flipkens RND 2 - Easy for Maria.
13 Marion Bartoli vs. Olivia Sanchez RND 2 - Relatively easy for Marion.
14 Flavia Pennetta vs. Roberta Vinci RND 2 - When these two play anything can happen. No idea. Possible upset but Flavia could win routinely too.
15 Aravane Rezai vs. Angelique Kerber RND 2 - Rezai in current form will win this pretty easily.
16 Yanina Wickmayer vs. Sybille Bammer RND 2 - Really not sure about this one, logic says its an easy win for Yanina and it probably will be but I'm not ruling out an upset here.
17 Francesca Schiavone vs. Sophie Ferguson RND 2 - Easy for Franny.
18 Shahar Peer vs. Bethanie Mattek-Sands RND 2 - Bethanie playing well but Shahar is in very very consistent form and I can not see her losing this at all.
19 Nadia Petrova vs. Agnes Szavay RND 2 - Agnes is good but Nadia is playing too well for her right now. No upset here.
21 Vera Zvonareva vs. Anastasia Rodionova RND 2 - Vera all the way.
22 Justine Henin vs. Klara Zakopalova RND 2 - Easy for Justine.
23 Daniela Hantuchova vs. Olga Govortsova RND 2 - Dangerous match for Dani, she could still get through but definately a potential upset.
24 Lucie Safarova vs. Polona Hercog RND 2 - Lucie is playing some of the best tennis on the circuit right but she might need to keep it up against Polona. Polona is very good but I'd say while an upset is possible it is still unlikely.
25 Jie Zheng vs. Anastasia Pivovarova RND 2 - Comfortable win for Jie
26 Dominika Cibulkova vs. Varvara Lepchenko RND 2 - Easy for Domi
27 Alona Bondarenko vs. Magdalena Rybarikova RND 2 - I actually think Magda has a chance here, not a huge chance but I give her a 25% shot at this one.
28 Alisa Kleybanova vs. Ana Ivanovic RND 2 - This looks around 50/50 to me with perhaps a tiny edge to Alisa.
29 Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova vs. Jill Craybas RND 2 - Easy for Nastya.
30 Maria Kirilenko vs. Yvonne Meusburger RND 2 - Not easy but comfortable for Maria.
31 Alexandra Dulgheru vs. Timea Bacsinszky RND 2 - Alex should win this perhaps not easily but it should be in two sets.
32 Kateryna Bondarenko vs. Aleksandra Wozniak RND 2 - With Kateryna just coming back from injury and Aleks playing well 1st round this has upset written all over it.

28 Alisa Kleybanova vs. Ana Ivanovic RND 2
32 Kateryna Bondarenko vs. Aleksandra Wozniak RND 2

I think these are the at risk games in the second round.

I don't really know how Hantuchova has been playing, but Govortsova looked really good when I saw her at PVB, and she looked great against Caro in that final. I could see her advancing.
