Sock has absolutely devastated the field. Let's see if Giron or the Styslinger/Frank winner can make him work harder.

Looks like good ole Chip Cox has given Sock the best fight thus far.

Giron will take more than two games. I expect him to give Sock a bit of a challenge, but he'll still lose in straight sets.

Giron's forehand is too big and heavy top not take more than 2 games. I expect a tight set. Something like 7-5 6-2 to Sock

Default Re: 2010 USTA Boy's National Tennis Championships

Who do you guys think will be invited to the wild card playoff, which begins Thursday? Here are my picks:

1. Denis Kudla (already confirmed to be participating)
2. Daniel Kosakowski
3. Mitchell Frank
4. Bjorn Fratangelo
5. Marcos Giron
6. Tennys Sandgren
7. Rhyne Williams
8. Bradley Klahn

Other possibilities: Alex Domijan, Evan King, Alexios Halebian, Jordan Cox, Andrea Collarini

I don't see older players like Smyczek, Kuznetsov, and Levine being invited. I'm assuming that Steve Johnson will get a main draw wild ard by virtue of winning the NCAAs.

It's hard to say what they'll do with Donald Young. Given his outburst after the French Open playoff, I'm thinking he won't be participating, but maybe things have been patched up behind the scenes. But if so, then I'd say he's a strong candidate for a main draw wild card given his ranking and performance in Washington, although getting routed by Bogomolov in Cincinnati hurts his chances, as does the fact that he's received many wild cards in the past.

Good list. I would leave Frank and Giron out and move up two of the other possiblilities. Frank is getting a Q WC, and he should be happy with that at this stage in his life. Giron can just play the Junior tournament.

It looks like Frank is indeed playing. I think he's a better player right now than King, Cox, Collarini, and Halebian. Domijan is debatable, but he has struggled since the NCAA Championships in May.

I think Giron can be competitive. He gave Sock his toughest match and recently took Artem Sitak to the limit in an ATP qualifiying match. He has also gotten the better of Bjorn Fratangelo on hard courts this year. I look for him to do very well at the Junior U.S. Open and he wouldn't be a pushover in the playoff. Being one of the youngest players on the list also works in his favor.

Five WC playoff participants have been announced: Kudla, Kosakowski, Williams, Domijan, and, surprisingly, Reynolds. I have no idea why Reynolds would be considered. He's 29 years old.

Domijan pulled out apparently.

Mitchell Frank vs Bobby Reynolds
Donald Young vs Bjorn Fratangelo
Denis Kulda vs Rhyne Williams
