Americans On Day 1 At The AO

Thirteen American women and seven American men played on day one at the first Major of the season. Unfortunately we lost some Americans in the first round because quite a few were slated to play against another American.  We had some surprising upsets and pleasant outcomes for a few Americans as well as some frustrating losses for others.
