After play has finished on Day 2, of the 18 teams left, no teams remain undefeated in sets. Only two teams have dropped just one set through to Day 2: Northern Lights 15-1 and KiVA 15 Red. And, only four teams have yet to be defeated in a match: Lights, KiVA, OT 15 S Melito and Munciana Lorax.
If Day 1 was the warm-up, then Day 2 proved to teams that it will be a demanding road to make it to the Finals. Teams had to finish in the top-two on Day 2, regardless if it was in a pool comprised of three or four teams.
Some three- and four-seeded teams on Day 2 made it through to gold on Day 3. While I, like many people, generally like to think of the one- and two-seeds as teams who “should win,” here in Orlando, we have to change our thinking. 15 Open is wide open for the taking and every team even on Day 2 is capable of winning it all.
