So I saw these late last night and didn't get a chance to look to much till now.
Not many of the usual guys playing this one but Olivaries might be a good pick here, blog challenge guy Ron Jones got seeded and hopefully can represent well as a challenge tourney guy. Bob Cecil who I hit with sometime can make some noise if his serve is working.
I think the doubles entries are much stronger at this level than singles. Take your pick here, Prather/Girder will be tough but Stein/Burns are solid as well as Newman/Fults. Also Goheen/Ereckson can make noise.
Feuille has the top seed and I don't see any roadblocks for him in reaching the final. Crouch will make him work if they meet in the quarterfinals. Great first round match up with the 2 seed Gonzalez v. Noaman Azhar. I will go with Noaman to take him out. I like a Azhar v. Harrigan quarter that could be a great matchup. And I am not going to lie I like my draw I was worried I would have a big name right off the bat. I just hope to get to Saturday somehow, we will see.
A very small draw in doubles, I guess I should have played. I think the 1 v 2 matchup is inevitable and if hopefully Trae's vacation in CA helped and he and Leonard can take out Trey and Scott in the final.
Some solid names here although not any of the really big names from the FW tourney. Corey has a chance to shine here if he is on his game. Griggs has the 1 seed but has Gihvan or possible Mckinney to deal with before a Noel/Griggs final occurs.
Much like 4.0 this draw is small and should end up being the 1 v. 2.
I look forward to seeing some of you out there this weekend. Any advice on my first round opponent, I have never heard of him. If he bagels me I am signing him up on my team for the fall.
