1) Dimitrov
2) Gulbis
3) Nadal/Djokovic
4) Berdych
5) Paire/Tsonga
6) Qualifier
7) Ferrer
8) Goffin
9) Davydenko

Had Murray not w/d, Rafa would have slipped to #4.

Non-Stadium 1R matches that are on my "To See" list.

Falla v [26]Dimitrov
[22]Dolgopolov v Tursunov - Dimitry has worked hard following injury
Qualifier v [16]Kohlschreiber
Berlocq v [19]Isner - I'd show for the American
[29] Youzhny v Andujar
Qualifier v [27]Fognini
[24]Paire v Baghdatis
[9]Wawrinka v De Bakker
Ramos v [21]Janowicz - I like Ramos!
Zopp v [32]Robredo - Tommy earned a seed after all that time away from the game!
Qualifier v [11]Almagro
[14]Raonic v Malisse
Nieminen v Mathieu
[17]Monaco v Gimeno-Traver
and last but not least
Qualifier v Qualifier

Since there are 3 stadiums, and as far as I know only the US Open does grand slam tennis right, you need a separate ticket to each of the 3 stadium courts. Totally lame :thumb-down:  So Haas, ranked #12, will likely be played in the Bull Ring or Lenglen. He's a bigger draw than Almagro, who likely will be put on Court #2 or 3.

*James Blake made the main draw and decided to show up?! Wow... I see Hewitt, too!

Bonus tennis
[10]Caroline Wozniacki v Laura Robson - would like to see Laura
Svetlana Kuznetsova v [22]Ekaterina Makarova
[24]Julia Goerges v Qualifier
Simona Halep v [20]Carla Suarez Navarro
Bethanie Mattek-Sands v Lourdes Dominguez Lino - I'd watch the American
Coco Vandeweghe v [27]Yaroslava Shvedova - I like Shvedova
Melinda Czink v Francesca Schiavone - see what la lioness has left
Flavia Pennetta v [21]Kirsten Flipkens - Pennetta's back!
Shuai Peng v Camila Giorgi - really want to see Giorgi
Jamie Hampton v [25]Lucie Safarova - I'd show up for this American
[18]Jelena Jankovic v Daniela Hantuchova
Karin Knapp v [17]Sloane Stephens - 4 Americans and 3 are women (I wouldn't show for Querrey)

Let the whining begin! Another typical (wet and cold) start to RG.

Why don't they have a roof?
I hate clay!
They need to move all the majors to different weeks on the calendar...

Fed may be able to make the finals again with this draw.
 
Fed is very rested but still may be a little rusty. The rest is important.
 
Djokovic is very rested, he's been laying low of late but no one can up their level like he can.
 
Djokovic will have Dimitrov and Tomic in his path possibly, if he meets them they will be boarding the plane for a rest.  :)
 
Nadal has played a lot but should be ready to go, he has had months to rest all of his body so he will have an advantage he hasn't had in years.

the draw is very unbalanced, but whatever. Roger has the easiest draw in tennis history, he is playing Q in R1 and R2, some Spanish clowns ... Ferrer in semis, he is in the final, I'm 99.999% sure.
Novak's path is the most difficult one.  If everything goes as planned we'll see Nole/Rafa in semis. I believe that the winner of this semi will decide the winner of RG, although if Nole def. Rafa and plays against Fed in the final, Fed will have his chances.

Right.  Djokovic will be at an advantage to have a tough path, he needs to be match tough to meet Nadal.
Nadal has had plenty of matches so I expect him to be at top level.
 
Fed's draw is to his advantage for two reasons.
He hasn't had as much clay match play as he needed so an easier draw will help him get his clay feet.
Playing Djokovic gives him a better chance than playing Nadal.
 
We may have to put an asterick on this if Fed wins it all.  :rofl_2:

it's not impossible at all, especially considering the fact that Djokovic might get tight and Fed will playing freely knowing he has nothing to lose.

He has a chance.
If Fed were to win one more I would like like nothing more than it to be at RG.
 
I wouldn't mind Djokovic winning either, he's such a good player that he should be in the career slam group.
If Djokovic wins this tournament it will be massive for his resume.
