Barbara Hepworth and Wilhelm Hammershoi both won their First-Round matches, lost their Second-Round matches, and then won the Left Bracket Second Round to stay in the race. This is, as far as I can recall [NOTE: I was wrong about this. See Chuckdaddy's comment.], the first time this has happened -- winners of First-Round Elimination tend to do really well against Second-Round losers. It's enough to justify this tournament being double-elimination, as if any such justification were needed.
Richard Hamilton's two losses came to Hammershoi and Hepworth, and he leaves the Tournament with a 1-2 record. Also exiting this week is Hans Hartung, also at 1-2.
