Mitchell Frank destroyed the nation's top seed in the first round. 6-2 6-1.
Jenkins also advanced to the round of 32.
With Domijan and Libietis both out, the top 2 seeds are gone. When was the last time, if ever, the top two seeds lost in the first round? That's almost like Nadal and Federer getting knocked out of the first round of a major. Crazy day in men's singles.

It's not that crazy. Domijan struggled the last two days and Libietis had to retire from his previous match (against Jarmere) on Saturday after turning his ankle. Keep in mind the seeds are based on the ITA computer rankings that draw from an entire year of results, so players that were hurt in the fall or skipped the fall are seeded lower than their ability.
In my mind, the favorite is Blaz Rola of OSU. Henrique Cunha of Duke is a big threat, as is Novikov from UCLA and Kobelt from OSU. Jenkins and Frank are also certainly contenders. I'm not quite sold on the guys from the SEC. They're good, but I think they all might be ranked a little high.
I cannot ever recall the top 2 seeds in the tourney losing in the first round. Can you? I don't think it's ever happened, which makes it pretty remarkable, even if it is somewhat circumstantial.
Jenkins is the last man standing for the Hoos.
JJ advanced to the sweet 16, and Frank lost in 3 sets to Mies from Auburn.
Jenkins won in a dog fight over USC's Sarmiento 7-6 2-6 6-4.
Jarmere is headed to the elite eight.
Virginia becomes the first team in the modern era to get a player into the men's quarters for 8 straight years.
Looking at Automator's list of contenders, Rola and Cunha are still alive. The others have been knocked out.

Jenkins kicked some booty today in singles. He's headed to the semis
Jenkins and Mac won their doubles today too.
Looks like Jarmere is ready for some 5 set matches if he turns pro.
