So I know the draw will come out tomorrow and I will update when I can but most likely I will not be near a computer tomorrow sooooo I thought I would give my initial thoughts on the tourney. I am going to try and get out to more tourneys most likely visiting towns I have friends and family in like Abilene. I am also looking for a change of pace from league play so I am looking forward to this first MZ tourney.
I wish I knew some of these names but the only one I know is my ride out there so go #4 seed. I have played only a set against David (Brad) but he is tough and has a good serve that should help him do well this weekend.
I was feeling really good about my chances and then everyone signed up but I am glad the draw is looking pretty solid now. My early favorites would be Oleg, Gerardo and Scott Russell.com Dark horses like Schick, Hutchison and Kraemer could contend as well. And I am sure there are some floaters out there from West Texas that will upset some seeds. Early odds have Lucky Thunder dominating consolation. #1 seed from Austin looks pretty strong as well.
#3 seed most likely is a lock to win this right? Actually when I first saw the names I liked Tims/Parkinson to do damage. I see Scott Russell.com picked up Mr. Jones which is a good combo but a little streaky. I don’t know the Aledo #4 seed and Brian Dennis and partner will be tough as well. Glad to see such a big draw though, get ready for the pain guys.
I small group and Paulie T got seeded, come on this on par with me being seeded right? Just kidding Paul, I will put a poll though just to gauge the audience. I think this will come down to Griggs v. Leach I hope they are on opposite sides of the draw. I like Leach to win this though.
Leach might just pull the double title here (no pressure Chris) but they are seeded #1 and playing a lot of recent bumpups here but some good ones. Rivas/Hicks and Bassett/Wood could be upset specials.
See ya'll out there, I just saw the forecast has been cleared of rain and highs in the mid 60s all weekend, should be some great tennis.
