Upset Corner - AO 2017 Edition
Here is your one-stop thread for discussing upsets (before, during and after) they happen.
Most importantly, do some public service by posting about potential upsets brewing so that other
folks can put down their important tasks and go to the correct court to see the action live.

Jankovic wins the first set against Siegemund with a lopsided score of 6-1. If JJ wins, this will technically be an upset as JJ is unseeded and LS is seeded 26.

Not even couple of hours is over, we have a big scalp. #4 Simona goes out to Shelby Rogers in straight sets.

Kiki vs. Vava tie breaker in second set. If Vava wins it is over and is an upset.

Coco eliminates Vinci, despite some physical issues.

I called this one. Clap

We had 5 upsets of seeded players on Day 1.

1. Halep ousted by Shelby Rogers
2. Vinci taken out by Coco
3. Kiki ousted by Vava
4. Daria Kasatikina taken out by Shuai Peng
5. Siegemund taken out by JJ

Who is in your radar for Day 2? You got 1.5 hours to post.

I am not surprised by any of the above except for Daria. She was playing well coming into this tournament.

Three upsets are in my radar for Day 2.

1. Heather to oust Samantha who typically buckles under pressure in home soil.
2. Camila's risky game should oust Timea.
3. Lara should take out Yulia.

Most of the players (4 of 6) causing upsets are Americans so far.

As I expected, Sam is in trouble. Down a break in the deciding set. Heather is trying to get double break and a long game is still being played by Sam trying to avoid a double break.
