Other than the top three (the Trivalry) of Fed, Nole and Rafa, who would you pick as the darkhorse to win this tournament?

Gilles Simon is always a tough contender..he's pushed Fed to 5 sets often but just cant seem to finish him off. Then there's always the threat of Soderling...its kinda hard to pick against the trivalry (lovin' that word btw) but if I just had to I'd say Soderling would be the one to cause some major upsets.

Interesting, I don't see Simon being the guy now at all.  I was just looking atthe draw and noticed that Ferrer could be the one.  He can take out Fed if he makes it tight and Roger starts getting nervous again.  Then he'd get Nole and there might be too much pressure on Nole this year. 

What are the chances Tsonga can get by Fed?  Slim I guess.

Yeah don't know how I forgot about Ferrer. Don't think he could do much against Fed though. Fed is down, but not out, and has an 11-0 record against him, so I don't see that happening. And Tsonga definitely has the game, but seems to implode at the strangest moments. Gasquet may knock a couple off the list though. What do you think??
Tsonga imploding as we speak!  Was up 2 sets to none on Wawrinka.  Now Wawrinka is serving for the match.  Then Stan will roll over to Fed.  Snore.
Its so iritating! If he could somehow summon that fight he had when he knocked Nadal out of the Semis at Australia again he would be something to contend with for sure! But its not looking like thats going to happen anytime soon unfortunately =/

Yes guys, it will be another Wawrinka roll over for Fed.  Free pass to the next round.  It must be nice to have a guy out there doing damage control for you everytime you happen to be in the same quarter.  Man that frustrates the heck out of me.  I guess I would have two dark horses....Delpo who has split sets with Djoko (match is suspended till tomorrow) and Gasquet.  Both are playing well.  Anything can happen.

Dark Horse Monfils! Super duper darkhorse, .... The Lubeman!
I actually give ljubicic a better chance that Gael M.  GM has so little offense, I can't see him winning.  Ivan L. on the other hand can go on a tear and beat any player in the world.  He may be a bit too old to go 5 sets match after match.  he'll need some easy wins.

This guy?

He has been hot on the dirt losing two finals to Nadal and a QF(?) to Nole. If seeding holds wouldn't he have to take out Fed, Novak, and Rafa? Good luck on that one!  
Once again Murray left in the dark. tsk, tsk, tsk.
Whoops! Murray just hurt his ankle in his win today. Never mind!
