Some of the top players say they don't look at their draws, and just go out and play their next match. How much stock you put in that is all up to you, but don't you think they have to take a glance?
Even if they're just taking a glance don't you think they're looking for guys they would rather not face?
I would be, and there are plenty of guys out there that the top guys would love to see in another section of the draw.
So far this summer we've seen some guys make some good runs, and have pretty big upsets. Going into the U.S. Open this trend could definitely continue.
I see eight guys who could be those potential "why do they have to be in my section" kind of guys.
Criteria for these guys is that they can't be ranked in the top 16 (so that a third round match is a potential against the top guys).
