Taking this one seriously, huh, boys?
By my possibly incorrect count, 12 of the 16 seeds are still in the tournament, with Misha, Nico, Lubes, and Halpert out. And for as much I was anticipating today's lineups, the blockbuster matchups ended up being relative duds. Reeshie made you wonder why his nickname was ever "Baby Fed". Pico gave Novak a tough test but couldn't do much once Nole started grooving. Nalby and Moose had some tremendous shotmaking but Tubbs once again showed why he's a total headcase and Andy once again caused a nation to frazzle when he had to call an MTO in the third for a bum wrist. Oh, and Sod bageled Gilles. Oddly, the most entertaining match of the day was Daveed vs. FogHat.
Blech all around. I do wonder how much of it has to do with the players' inability to adjust to the quickness of the Bercy courts. Cuz that shit be fast, yo.
Here's hoping tomorrow's matches are more competitive.
Scores and OOP after the jump.
