I'm looking through my preview right now, and I've predicted three non seeds to go through. I'd give Bingham & McLeod a chance, but overall it's pretty safe. I'm disappointed I couldn't have more of a go at being a bit outrageous, but I don't see it happening this year. I think it's got something to do with the rolling rankings. I mean, in 2008 Graeme Dott was seeded 2nd and hadn't won a game in about a year.
