Week 1 Down. Feels like we just finished...
Week one is in the books. A few surprises. I thought the winner would be the rain but we got a lot of tennis in this weekend. Lets just get started as time is short.
5.0+ I am changing my pick to Perkison. Collins and Jooste were not on the roster when I made my initial pick. Jooste was a former Baylor #1 player and Loren Collins is fairly well known as a top guy.
Collins dropped Braga pretty hard. This team is now officially loaded! Hard to see them falling if they get their players out. A very good team just got better... Significantly better.
Flight A: There were no surprises here so little to report. A few matches are not reporting either. Reiman, Rossouw and Noel all won but they also didn't exactly play anyone of note. They did what was expected. This week is Reiman versus Rossouw to determine who the likely flight winner is. I like Reiman's team to win this.
Flight B: The only contender that played was T-Bar. They won 4-1 and Lakes was on a Bye week. No real match of the week in this flight.
Flight C: Village beat High Point 5-0 and looking like it wasn't even competitive. In a surprise, Oak Creek lost to Huffhines. Huffhines swept doubles. I still think Brookhaven/Village wins this flight and that happens next. Brookhaven easily dispatched the TBar B-team.
Flight A: Expected favorite Fretz/Noel wins 4-1 against Eagles Landing. WTF is Eagles Landing? Since there is nobody else worth mentioning, I will stop there.
Flight B: The much discussed High Point/Le team won 5-0 against a Fretz team with 8 3.5s on it so nothing unexpected. They weren't expected to be copetitive and they weren't. Greenhill won 3-2 beat Springpark 3-2. The winner of this is likely your QT participant. Nothing major being played this week.
Flight C: McKinney easily dispatched the Village without dropping a set. Brookhaven handled El Dorado 4-1 so no surprises here. McKinney does play a Fretz team but shouldn't have trouble.
Flight D: In a surprise beat down, Oak Creek took Fretz 5-0 but Fretz defaulted two lines. In the surprise team I have never heard of a single player is Greenhill/Wendelken they won 5-0 over Gleneagles. Gleneagles is usually pretty decent so this may be a team to watch.
For all you clamoring about 3.5...
Flight A: The wild card from the fall already lost 3-2 to Stonebridge by losing 3 3rd set tiebreakers.Oak Creek leads the pack.
Flight B: Nobody has reported or played.
Flight C: McKinney and Brookhaven won easily so that is that.
