  1. I’m not sure that Gulbis is ever a surprise exit, and I’m not sure that Nadal would be this time around either. I’ve been leaning toward Federer having a good shot at this one. I’ll pick Dimitrov as the surprise exit (though I still have fears about Wawrinka), Goffin as the dark horse, and Pospisil as having a decent run since his section of the draw has some erratic seeds.
