Berdych has a better-than-outside chance to win...and I like Li Na to upset Sharapova and Serena.
Well, sorry Steven, but your male darkhorse is already out in the pasture. Berdych goes down in 5 to Monfils!
Yeah...I can really pick'em. At any rate, Monfils is a dangerous player against anyone. Congrats to the Frenchman.
I was going to say Berdych but obviously that ship has sailed!
On the top half, anyone other than Nadal (and maybe Djokovic) reaching the final will be the... end of the world!
So, I'll pick a dark horse from the bottom;
Tsonga's the only player left (I believe) who's been to a GS final and if he gets past Roger, taking out Ferrer or Almagro or whoever gets to the SF's should be a manageable win. In the final, if and only if Djokovic somehow gets to the final, then if Tsonga throws booming serves and fearhands (as Brad Gilbert likes to call them) at Nole, he might get the job done.
To sum it up, I give him ~0.5% change of pulling it off!
My Dark horse is the first person to beat Nadal.
I'd say that person has a pretty good chance of winning!
Thanks Mark....thank you for agreeing with my dark horse. But history has shown anyone that beats Nadal in the french doesn't win the french.
The first guy that beats Nadal this year is going to be either Fed or Nole, if that. And neither of those guys are a darkhorse. It is tough to pick an unlikely winner this year - the top dogs are just too good. I'd have to say Tsonga or Dimitrov....
But what about Monfils??? How deep can his run be?
Monfils doesn't have to patience to win it all.
What kind of dark horse pick is that? Nameless, just whoever beats Nadal? lol
