So the Alamo City (Major Zone) tourney occurs this weekend. Some Ok size draws and as someone noted to me not that many Dallas area players making the trip down there. Even though the draws aren't huge I think there might be high quality matches since most of the names here look pretty solid. Probably hurts that the Dallas QT tourney is happening as well as the Houston city league championships. For me personally SA would be the one town worth driving to for tennis since it is a nice town to relax in.
Also FYI the sign up for the FW Major Zone is tonight at midnight for all you tourney freaks. That takes place the weekend of July 25-27. A good tune-up for you sectional bound players. If I am not mistaken those are the last two major zones, is that right?
And then of course the Denise Terrill NF tourney in August (registration underway). Lucky Thunder might be the number #1 seed at 4.0 singles because they are using my ranking points from some XBOX Topspin tennis games I did well on in 2004.
Not that big of draw at all.
SA player Campos gets #1 seed and should do well. Flores also making the trip down there and they would meet in the quarterfinals. Forrest Gray and Lookabaugh are in the bottom half of the draw and have a good chance of making it to the final.
A lot of SA players in this draw including the #1 seed Ontiveros. Not too many DFW players although Bowman, Marcus, Voss and Trevino are headed down there.
Trautman’s home tourney but some other good players will be there. Sanchez, Kallus, Knutson and my favorite name that barely fits on the home page: Guilermo L. Martin Del Campo. Oh yeah and Noaman is headed down. Take em’ down for Dallas Noaman. I think you are the only metroplex player.
Gray/Gray v. Thompson/Wright should be the final unless there is an upset before Sunday.
Voss/Newman will probably play Parkinson/Tims in the 2nd round which should be a decent match especially that early in the draw. Hai/Jean are in the bottom half of the draw so could there be another HP final. Still some other good teams out there that could stop that train.
