Crazy Elf keeps on truckin', taking out a solid Troicki, 3 and 2. In sad news for all, PEHK was forced to withdraw with a right shoulder injury. Here's hoping he takes his time off to do a website redesign. Maybe update the music or something.
Finally, a really solid showing by the Americans in Auckland. Falsetto Sam is still in, beating Nico 3 and 2. And Halpert stayed in there with Soderling but eventually fell 4 and 4.
