This is your area, Don. Home event. Better do what you need to. You're the veteran here, show the kids how it's done.

The two players that I would have given the highest odds of winning, Harrison and Shabaz, are of course slated to meet in the first round (they have gone by pure seeding for the first round in the past, with #1 vs #8, etc.).

It is easy for Harrison to get the WC.

Young should easily get to the final match. It will probably be Young vs Harrison or Smyczek.

No, I knew Sock would beat Don. Big serve, big hitter, net, bad match-up for Don. I'm extremely disappointed, but whatever.

I expected one of Kudla, and the Shabaz/Harrison winner to take this, and that's what I still expect.
