    Hoping Hao Li wins U19 singles because he goes to my school xD

    I think Alex Pang is going to win U19 though, maybe doubles depending on who his partner is.

    Don't really know much else about the other players in U19/U23 though, so we'll see how it plays out.

    I'm really excited to see Alex Pang play. I've heard a lot about him but he sort of stopped before I could see him and now he'e playing again- cool.

    I think the top guys for u23 will be Chris Lee, Kyle Holoboff and Brad Enns... I'll be gunning for Brad since he's my coach. Not really sure how they do against each other though?

    If Alvin Lau and Toby Ng are playing doubles together, I'm willing to bet they'll do quite well, if not win.

    I would say that for u23, I think that Joseph Rogers will win...He's an professional player at this point and does pretty well at the national level considering that he's still only u19.

    Yeah, there have been some cool upsets... I always love to see those. In my opinion, Chris Lee looks like he is playing pretty sharp... I would put money on him taking out Joseph (that is if he can beat Brad Enns). The U19 draw is pretty intense... very competitive. So yeah... semis are tonight and I'll be cheering on my fellow Manitobans- 3 left!

    u19 MS should be exciting to watch.

    alex vs david in the finals.

    u23 MS is chris vs joseph wouldn't be bad either

    i need to say, there is something about Chris Lee's style that is really unique and that makes me enjoy watching him play... though sometimes it seems like he's just not trying at all, but that's a different story..

    to u19 BD semis, it was a very exciting match between the young ontarios and the quebecs. too bad the youngsters couldn't pull it off, there was quite a crowd and the cheering was awesome. :p crazy atmosphere!

    i'll be heading to the club today and watch the crazy matches- a lotta people which makes it really stuffy than usual :( g'luck to you all playing!! :D

    Lol yeah. There was a pair from Ontario (Joey and Evan?) that looked really good... so tactical- very fun to watch. I thought they were gonna take out the team that ended up winning. I have to agree with what you said about Chris Lee. Very, very, very talented looknig. Very fun to watch as well. He has such good focus on court... you can tell he's not seconding guessing himself- even when Joseph tied it up in the second.

    Also, Dave won the boys singles! Congrats Dave... he's worked extremely hard and it's taken a lot of years of hard work (he also was injured at nationals more than once). He truly deserves it - mind the finals game was really exciting to watch... the scores don't really demonstrate the level of play. I was very, very happy to see him win.
