USO Qualifying: Lucky 16

As I spent three days attending the qualifying tournament, I have become invested in the outcome and where my boys will place.  I am happy to see that a recovered Ryan Harrison has made it through to the main draw. I’m eager to see how far he will go; fingers crossed he doesn’t get too high a seeded player in the first round. Eleven (11) of the lucky 16 have already been decided as I write this note:
