The Australian Open is under way and 128 men and 128 women start their quest for the year's first Grand Slam title in the next two days.
We will be able to see all 64 seeds and their challengers take on the courts at Melbourne Park.
Back on the women's side, is the defending champ Kim Clijsters. But so are the top four seeds, Caroline Wozniacki, Petra Kvitova, Vitoria Azarenka and Maria Sharapova.
Let's not forget the ever present Serena Williams—whether she plays or not.
Injuries have riddled top players like Nadal, Federer, Wozniacki, Clijsters, Sharapova and Williams. This could leave the door open for possible surprises.
The favorites are just that, and that's why everyone watches them. But there are points in history where, names not that known or better known as sleepers, caused a surprise with deep runs in the tournament, sometimes reaching the finals stage.
Those are also players who we like to seek though the brackets and identify the.
Here, I give you a list of five players you must put on your radar now, and when they make it deep in the tournament, you won't be surprised like the rest.
