Fish (8th seed on this draw) has withdrawn from LA with an injury. If he withdraws from Legg Mason, would Tommy move up as a seed, or would they put in a Lucky Loser? Qualifying is going on this weekend. I'm going to go to the final and maybe during the week if Tom is playing. Will post a report if I go.
The fields seem to get stronger IMHO as these Tournaments go on toward the U.S. Open. Because more players from other countries start coming to the U.S. (and Canada) to play in at least some of these Tournaments. I was so disappointed after L.A. I think I will keep my expectations low this time.
So far so good--Tommy leads in the 1st Set 4-1 I hope he feels more comfortable in D.C. than L.A. He just didn't seem to be that happy Tommy we had been seeing as of late in L.A. I hope he gets that look and feeling back--fingers crossed
