2015 USTA League Nationals 18 & over 4.0 Men semi-finals are set, up to date prediction here

The semi-finals for the 18+ 4.0 Men are set.

In one semi, Texas, the top seed in their flight will play Southern Cal, the the top seed in theirs, in a match-up of the top-2 overall seeds coming in to Nationals.

The other semi has Southwest, the top-seed in their flight facing Northern, the #3 seed in theirs.

This means the pre-Nationals, #1, #2, #6, and #7 teams advanced.

But when factoring in the play at Nationals, the top-8 averages for each team would predict Southern Cal and Northern advancing to the final with Southern Cal winning it all.  This of course assumes top-8 averages represent how a team match will go, but who actually plays and getting favorable match-ups is equally as important.  And it appears some teams may not have their top-8 at Nationals, so it should be interesting.
