Overall, good qualifying tournament for the Americans (especially the wildcards). I'm surprised that more guys made it out of the qualifying round than the girls (only Sam Crawford qualified).

Congrats to Rhyne on his first USO maindraw appearance! I'm probably the only one who is not surprised at his qualification wins . He may be a headcase, but he usually plays well against higher ranked opponents. I don't expect him to beat Andy though. The last time someone lighted him up with 20 aces, he lost 1&4 if my memory is correct.

Also, congrats to Bradley and Tim on their 2nd USO maindraw appearance. Bradley played in 2010 via a wildcard (NCAA Champion). And of course, congrats to Bobby on making the maindraw for the 6th time .
