Bracket updated...more than half of the first-round matches are complete...available second-round matches have been sent out.

The Davis Cup bracket is also post...end of the first post under the initial player signups...captains have been contacted to set their doubles/singles lineups and I'm hoping to get games out for the quarterfinal round by mid-week.

Just a suggestion, but in the semi's and final of the Davis Cup maybe each player could play one singles rubber and the top 2 moneywinners could play doubles?

Great tournament!

Never a fan of playing in the brutal heat of the Australian open (12 territory start ;) ) Plash Ricrem comes out swinging taking down 19th seeded vykingsfan in straight sets (5024807, 5024806). When asked after the match how he was able to overcome some early jitters (vikes getting the first drop in both games) Ricrem noted that in the first set Vikes double fault to cost him his service game (inability to take a territory turn 1) really hampered his cause, noting that "it just wasn't his day." Things then only seemed to go downhill for Vykingsfan who watched in horror as he was unable to capture a crucial break point from love-40 (11-6 to break a +2 bonus) and then was steamrolled in the second set when Ricrem's vicious forehand got cranking (3 card mixed to really end much hope of a comeback).

When asked about his 2nd round opponent 30th seeded markec, Ricrem thought that the seedings really don't matter much anyway. "You can't take anything for granted out here. On any given day anything can happen. Hopefully I'll be able to keep up the good play though and advance into the quarters."

your reports are hilarious plash...very fun, you are welcome in any of my tourneys.

Rumor had it that a crazed lunatic charged out of the stands and tried to fit vyks with a red beret. Can you confirm or deny? With no television coverage for the early rounds, no cameras were on hand to document the incident?

Unfortunately Flex, those reports were true. The lunatic was unsuccessful however, as vyks let forth with a couple of vicious forehands with his racket and beat the attacker savagely. After the match several onlookers noted that those swings were probably the best ones that Vyks took all afternoon.

I had to beat the crap out of him! He was wearing a Packers jersey and a piece of foam cheese on his head.

Another update from the CCN (conquer club news) sportsdesk where down in the simmering heat of the Australian Open upstart 30th seed Markec has shown no fear in a second round classic with 14th Plash.Ricrem. Markec came out with a vengeance in the first set, quickly breaking Ricrem twice (picking up 2 territory bonuses worth +5) on the way to a swift 6-1 thrashing (5059493). However, unlike in previous years where Ricrem may have wilted due to the heat or the tremendous start of his opponent, Ricrem steadied himself in the second set (5059488). The second set was filled with tension as the two foes exchanged long volleys, culminating in a tiebreaker where Ricrem was only able to seize control after an untimely double fault by Markec (Cashed a blue and lost 14-7 followed by myself cashing a 3 card mixed) . They're now headed to a decisive 3rd set, where all bets are off. Stay with us at CCN after the match for exclusive post game comments and a highlights of the 3rd set.
