Wow, what a draw!
Let's look at the sure things vs. upsets, starting at the top:
Uihlein/Keevins easily getting into the quarters but not before a one-on-one "who's dick is bigger" pegging match in the second round Uihlein vs. duRandt: Uihlein wins the peg total 17-14 but duRandt's hurt a little more and deflates chubby boy's ego, who proceeds to hit 11 spin overhead winners as well as 15 FYMs in a row to prove that he "still got it".
Cosi/Caldwell (whatever happened to Cordish?) will beat Ruppert/Wright 2 & 2 in 2 hours and 87 minutes. Match point alone lasted 25 minutes, with team C/C at the net, of course.
First upset of the draw (and it pains me to go against my homeys), Slobin & Fitzgerald will beat Lubow & DeRose. Actually, I should say the latter self-destructs, trying to set a world record in drop-shots, including off their own serve aka the drop serve. Final drop-shot count: 323 drop shots attempted, 127 of which clean winners, 228 misses, and the rest (119) the jury is still out on what to call them. I hope I will be wrong as I would pay $ to watch a shotfest quarter D/L vs. Bancila/Easterbrook.
Bancila/Easterbrook into the semis in what can be a highly entertaining match either against the defending champs or (yes, OR) Caldwell/Cordish. That quarter is a toss-up in my opinion and that of my other expert colleagues.
Cochrane/Estes easily into the quarters, where they will lose to Rothschild/Schmitt in straight sets. Or win in straight sets - that match will not be a three setter. Assuming R/S get there since their second round match is very tough vs. Jonasson and Albrikes. All three matches a toss-up, any team could go through. My pick is Rothschild/Schmitt, who will attempt to be the first team ever to win SH without hitting one lob - very doable.
Broderick/Moore ousted and outplayed in the 2nd round by Engel & Martin.
Marino & Stulac will cruise into the semis after a 6 & 6 win vs. Engel/Martin (both tie-breakers 13-11).
Sooo, semis Caldwell/Cosimano vs. Bancila/Easterbrook and Rothschild/Schmitt vs. Stulac/Marino. Take your pick, you have a 25% chance of getting it right.
