Just after crowning the 2006 winners, its time to start all over again. This time we've got a new element...round robin tournaments. This means a few more overall matches played in those tournaments and Adelaide is the first case. Already we see a result of that as Chris Guccione leads the way playing in 6 matches in all. He was a wild card and got through the main draw eliminator (not to be confused with qualifying), then won both his round robin matches, and reached the finals for a 5-1 overall record. Also with 6 matches, the old fasioned way, is Matthias Bachinger who got through qualifying at the Sao Paulo challenger, then reached the quarterfinals.
Its the first week of the year so anyone who won a title is still undefeated. There were 5 tournaments in all so there are 5 players at 5-0.
