Some nice stories developing out of Stanford today. In the battle of "I swear you guys, it wasn't a fluke!" Sammy Stones upset wee Domi 4 and 3. I have no idea how Mono got pushed to a 76(6) tiebreaker by Ayumi, but yeah, that happened. MaKiri battled it out with the still slumping Chakky and come out on top (settle down, boys) in the "Oh, Jesus. Just flip a coin" match of the day. And my little headcase Dani notched a solid win, beating CanWoz in a tight one, 64 46 75.
And as if a picture of Dani smiling and looking like Anakin wasn't enough, the tennis gods had to give me even more awesomeness when Julie "I got drunk last night at Blue Chalk and all I got was this lousy t-shirt" Coin got bounced by Alla. Suck it, Drunk Tank!
