2008 ANU Open - Round 1

The first round of the Open has been completed with 1 upset, 1 semi upset and 1 forfeit. All the top seeds survived unscathed, although the winner of last weeks Geelong Open, Mehmet Dizdarevic, was defeated by Canberra junior Luthien Russell. The minor (with 57 players) also saw most of the top seeds triumphant, although there were a couple of upsets on the lower boards.
