    So in the final tuneup in Auckland, We had Sock, Querrey, & Isner as 3 of the top 4 seeds in that tournament.

    They all went down in their first match :L

    Not so sure. Maybe Sock. The real young guys (Tiafoe, Fritz, etc..) might do better.

    Querrey never plays well here. His best tournaments recently been Wimbledon and US Open

    Halep and Ferrer are in trouble. Stosur is on her way out and Puig is on her way up. That would not be an upset.

    Radwanska vs. the lesser known Pliskova. I guess it's a good chance to see how her game is compared to her sister.

    I liked how Donald Young played last year. Hopefully he brings it against Djokovic.

    Stosur needs to ask Venus what her victorious secret is. And then use it to stall decay.

    Both Williams sisters took a lot of time away over the years. They did not get ground down like most of the players on the tour.

    Not at the Australian Open, Novak's best surface. The USO or FO have been better for Monfils, so they would probably be a better match there.

    Still, you never know with Monfils. There's always this year that he can create some excitement with a big win at a major.
