lol you have 32 favourites for the second round (half the draw).
Well I'd say Sampras too. I hope he's gonna win at least. :)

He is now the pundits' favourite too.

I'm picked Federer to come out of the top quarter, and Marat Safin to come out of the second quadrant.

For the third Kafelnikov, and the fourth I'm not sure.

I've banked a lot of hope on Mark P - but I'm thinking he'll lose to Greg or Henman. SO maybe Henman could come out of that quarter? Or enqvist or Johanson? WE could see a surprise out of the that quarter!

TO win it all - I'm not sure. But I can definately see one of the Russians doing it.

Oh no Becca, Roger is my 2nd pick! He is just playing absolutely brilliant and SO CONFIDENT!

But his draw is pretty harsh...Rainer/Carlos in the 3rd, Xavier/Todd/Tommy in the 4th, if he gets passed them he'll have no one to contend with in the quarters until the semis.:)

Moya or Rainer may be tough - but Moya still isn't as good as he was (hopefully he'll get there) - and I'm confident he can beat Rainer.

I wasn't thinking and thought he would face Tommy in the quarters potentially - now if they both get there - a match against Haas could be very tough.

As per usual, it will depend a lot on how Tommy plays.

His semi could be any of Roddick, Safin, Sampras.. Which could or could not be tough. Of the three I think Safin could beat him - if Safin isn't being erratic. And who knows about Pete- he showed up at the US Open that he can beat anyone still.

I dont think ROddick is a problem for Roger though.

Look at what's happening to Grosjean now...
He just lost the 3rd set bagel to Clavet!!!! :eek: :eek:

If he is going to lose.... that will be a major upset in that quarter of that bottom half draw.... And who's going to benefit.... Goran & Yevgeny!

I'd pick the last 4 at the moment to be Roger Federer, Pete Sampras, Yevgany Kafelnikov and Tim Henman, all of them are playing some really good tennis just now.

I think out of that lot, I'd pick Pete to win the title, but I'm still not too sure that he'll be able to cope with a few 5 sets matches and also if the weather gets warmer.

I wish Sampras but I think not, seems he plays not too good here even he was at his peak a few years back.

I think may be Safin/Federer/Mark.
