Wow, facing the top seed in the first match. One of only 3 boys of the 2017 generation. Tough draw. Good luck, I'll be watching THE draw.

What surface is it? Says Unknown and I'm curious.

He's not the first seed, it's all random except if you get #2 in regionals you have to play someone who got #1 in regionals. And actually, this kid is the best draw I could've gotten. I looked up his record, and we're going to have a close match. It is nice being one of the few freshman

The surface is outdoor HC (we are in the U.S. after all )

Won my first match 6-4 6-2 (I was up 5-0 in the first). It's insane, now (theoretically) I'm top 8 in the state

Next match against a kid I lost to 2 and 0 earlier in the season Wish me luck!

Congrats, Dylan

Best of luck on your next match! For TT i just saw a player who lost 1 and 0 earlier this year to the same opponent and then won THE next match. You can do it too

DAMN SON!!! If you keep winning maybe MTF will need to sponsor you .

Keep it up Freaky, THE state is your's to lose.

Also Arapa is full of vulturing pushing mugs, so should be an easy game.

3-6 3-6

I played really well. If the kid I played reaches the final then I play again. Thanks for the encouragement

Still, that's impressive from 0-3 losing 3-6. That almost never happens. It shows mental resolve

The most important thing is you played well

Time now to become a fangirl of this player How does this system even work? So is it a consolation match?
