Greg's right about the luck aspect. Last year I lost my first match (to a teammate, nonetheless), and somehow won the next 6. And then, like everyone else, got obliterated by Robert Sale in the final. I don't pretend to have any idea as to how I'll Saturday. I'm too busy being worried about Pertussis.
