2015 USTA League Nationals 18 & over 3.0 Men status after day 1

After day 1, here is how things stand in the 18+ 3.0 Men's flights.  See how the ratings predicted day 1 matches as well.

Flight 5 will be decided by the Intermountain vs favorite Northern Cal match today, both 2-0.  The winner advances to the semis.

Flight 6 has an important match between Pacific Northwest and co-favorite Midwest.  If PNW wins, they win the flight.  If Midwest wins they have the upper hand but if co-favorite Eastern beats Southern Cal, they could catch them and win a 3-way tie at 2-1.

Flight 7 appears to be decided with sleeper Caribbean 2-0, and even if they lose, they have wins over the other teams that could tie them at 2-1 so it appears wrapped up.

Flight 8 has favorite Middle States in control and needing just one court in their match with Southwest to wrap it up.
