DOUBLES DRAW POSTED
Great first day. Everything is going smoothly. As Greg Patton says - It's all in the Feeling. At this point everyone is still in the singles main draw and consolation. Please let me know if you are dropping out. Some of you have doubles matches following your singles in the morning. I give you one hour between singles and doubles. That's plenty enough. I want to make sure you have plenty of time to play your doubles just in case you go late into a third set. Please check for scheduling conflicts but I'm confident there aren't any.
Preliminary Doubles Seeds Posted
