Handicapping the Australian Open Field
My guess is that in those honest moments before falling to sleep most of the top eight seeds would prefer a different draw. Regardless, I think the player who benefits from an upset or two will be the player to watch on the final weekend.

In other words, by the time the Williams retire, U.S. women’s tennis will virtually retire with them.
