    Each year, the players from the two finalists struggle in the individual tourney due to fatigue, having played an emotional match the day before. I hope that does not happen this year. I think there should be a day off, but that is unlikely to ever happen.

    King/Domijan is probably the toughest first round, should be a great match

    So, there might be a chance for Slilam to knock off Johnson?

    I'd have to say that Jarmere got the toughest first round opponent. Getting the 4 seed earned him a 1st rounder against the 2010 champ.

    It makes me laugh that Juan Spir is in there.

    And they just played a few days ago. Jenkins won the tight first set in a tiebreak, and Klahn was up 3-2 in the second set when it was abandoned.

    After that fiasco with Jerk Johnson in the Sweet Sixteen, the NCAA has a cute sense of humor by putting Kalmanovich up against JJ again in the first round.
    At least Nevolo is on the other side of the draw.

    Domijan vs King is a cracker in the first round.

    Whats the purpose of automatic qualifiers in the individual tournament? I mean is there any reason that Nick Sayer deserves to be in this tournament?

    Not only that, but they put Domijian against #6 Evan King. That's arguably two first round matches between top ten players in the first round.

    Also, that's tough draw for SJ. Meister and McMorrow have both challenged him in the past, and he'll likely draw one of them in the Sweet 16. Then he'll likely get Domijian or King, two of the most talented and hottest players in the country. Throw in a big hitter like Kalmanovich and a very game Senior in Slilam and he can't be happy with that quarter.

    Rule is that any champion of a conference gets an AQ if they are ranked.

    Purpose is to give the little guys a shot against the big guys

    Does he have a chance? No

    Dangit Hernus. The boy has potential, just got to put it all together. Hopefully he finds a good form next year when he'll probably be playing much higher in the lineup.

    Nevolo rolling Pulgar. Good to see.

    Mies vs Tearney is a good one

    I'm surprised to see Thiemann beating Alcantarra. I thought the Filipino from Fresno wouud be more dangerous.

    The Georgia vs Georgia Tech matchup on Court 3 between KU and Kevin King is a pretty good scrap, so far.

    It was a shame that King had to sit out his last few games of his dual career because of injury. Great player. Really worked hard to make himself into a great #1 after being a mediocre 3 and 4 player for most of his career. I hope he can make a good run here. Although I also like Singh, great match either way.

    Both would have a pretty tough test in the next round, but KU did beat Buchanan earlier this year, fairly convincingly.

    EDIT: Well, there's the match. Good win for King.

    2 Dawgs down, 3 more to go...Hoping Sadio has got a little magic left for his last year, especially to make up for the Quarters loss against Pepperdine.

    First match was Tech's #1 vs Georgia's #2 and now we have Tech's 2 vs UGA's 1. What a coincidence. I imagine Spencer's got this one pretty well in hand.

    He does. Spir is the worst player in the field. He has moments where he will dump volley after volley after volley into the net.

    I wouldn´t discard him. In a good day he can beat good players, and he beat Jenkins about 1-2 months ago. So, we could say that Spencer has the edge, but I wouldn´t be surprised if Spir wins.

    Illinois' Nevolo beats Pulgar (NC State) 6-1, 6-3. Next Illini up; Kalmanovich up against No. 1 Johnson.

    That win is why he is in this tournament. I have no idea how that happened. I watched him blow a 5-0 set lead vs Meza to lose the set 5-7.
    He also got routined by Blake Davis. He is a great doubles player though.
