The fun begins in just a few hours. Another Open is upon us and Opening Day is always a little like Christmas morning--not that I celebrate Christmas, but I live in America--waking up to find the great presents awaiting our perusal. So with that in mind, here are seven upsets you can go to the bank on in the first round:1. Donald Young beats Roger Federer--fooled you! What do you think I'm an imbecile. That's not my first pick. This is>>1. Rhyne Williams beats Andy Roddick--out with the old, in with the new, I always say. Williams was basically unheard of until the qualis and he can just as quickly go back into his Futures/Challenger hole if he gets mauled by Roddick, but I say the youngster has too much game for Roddick now.2. Go Soeda beats Mardy Fish--Soeda's stock has been rising. I saw him play Ollie Rochus up at Newport and he lost in three close sets, but then the next week in Atlanta, he beat his higher-ranked compatriot, Kei Nishikori. Fish has been playing well, but I sense Soeda will break down his forehand.3. Jesse Levine beats Alexandr Dolgopolov--just so you people out there in Prose-land don't think I only pick against the Americans, I like Jesse-boy in this duel. Dolgo has been thudding since winning Washington D.C. this summer, and Jesse's got fight, he's got some quirkiness of game as does Dolgo, of course, but I like Jesse in this battle.4. David Goffin beat Tomas Berdych--basically, Berdych has been horrid this summer. I know he reached the Winston Salem finals, but the guy is ready for the taking and Goffin is a peach-faced assassin. 5. Bradley Klahn beats Jurgen Melzer--again, I'm going with the American. That's three in these upset picks. I'm a Yankee Doodle Dandy. Klahn impressed me against Serra in the last round of qualis. It's lefty vs. lefty here and again, I say, out with the old and in with the young. Besides, Melzer's been hideous this year. 6. Gilles Mueller beats Mikhail Youzhny--someone told me they watched Youzhny practice at the Open last week and he looked none too engaged. Now that's hearsay I realize, but hey, Youzhny almost lost to DY in the first round of Wimbledon, and besides, I'm all about hearsay. 7. Ernests Gulbis beats Tommy Haas--I know Haas is the favorite flavor of the summer, making a heralded comeback at 34, but I like Gulbis's backhand against Tommy's and I think Gulbis plays some of his best tennis at the Open for a match or two. I'm betting this is one of those matches.
