The matches:

R1 - J.GARCIA (DOM) v. C.DIAZ-FIGUEROA (GUA)
R2 - V.ESTRELLA (DOM) v. J.URIGUEN (GUA)
R3 - V.ESTRELLA / J.GARCIA (DOM) v. C.PAIZ / C.SARAVIA (GUA)
R4 - V.ESTRELLA (DOM) v. C.DIAZ-FIGUEROA (GUA)
R5 - J.GARCIA (DOM) v. J.URIGUEN (GUA)

I know this Uriguen is a highly ranked junior, do people think he has a chance to earn a win? Estrella should probably beat him, but I don't know about Garcia :shrug:

Garcia won a Future in which Estrella took part, if I am not mistaken. Doesn't seem like a complete no-hoper.

Guatemala got a tough draw, Garcia can play while Guatemala has 2 young players playing. It is weird Paiz wont play at least one single as he is Guatemala's best player, but I think they just want to give the young guys experience. As long as we remain in this 2nd Americas group it ok.
