Thanks for the prod Anonymous, I have been a little sleepy lately. So there are two big tourneys this weekend and it looks like there are some good teams and players entered at both of them.
Brookhaven Doubles Indoor Tournament
Muniz and Bostick will be tough to beat. My 3.0 team(Kelly/Alzuro) from tri level will see them early, that should be a good warm up match. Montgomery and Kirk should be solid as well.
Really a toss up here. I like Harrigan and Hardaway together. I have partnered with both and they bring good strengths to form a good team. Robinson and Brouer are solid and the Somabut reps are Bob/Kirby and Hai/Jean and Deviney/Carlquist. It would be safe to pick any of those two teams. Madison/Sweeney should be good too. OK before I name the entire draw I will stop. Really looks like a good draw though, sucks there is no consolation because some good teams will get knocked out early.
A very small draw, I think some of those 4.0 teams should have moved up to play. Noel and Young play the #1 seed first and should have a good match. I am guessing the winner there has a great chance to win two more.
Abilene Major Zone
Some pretty good names headed out to W Texas, Scott Blackburn, Molina, Getz (who we will face at the Tri Level), Forrest Gray, Parker and Larry Reitzer. Tough to pick but I would probably go with Reitzer or Parker.
Good size draw, Jonathan Marcus, Mark Carter, Tim Newman, Paul Trevino, T Nguyen, Delira, Kraemer and Brian Walker. This sounds like an old 3.5 draw but plenty of talent and no clear frontrunner so I think you all will have some good matches. That type of grind out sounds good for Nguyen but I would probably vote for Carter or Walker to come out on Sunday.
All the big names, Trautmann of SA, Schumucker of Houston, Kern, Kallus, Mark Jenkins, JD Miles. Not that big of a draw so big names will play each other early. GO JD take out all these Houston chumps!!!
