At the Nationals I asked a couple of high level players why the ended up in the bottom division.  In both cases their flight was late and the missed the first round.  With no wins in the first round, they automatically ended in the bottom group.

You need to redo your math again. Right now there are 292 entries in the tiered singles. For simplicity let’s say 8 more entries are received and all of them are lower rated then you. That will work out to 50 groups of 6 players. Now let’s just assume that all the A players win their RR groups. On to 2nd RR. 50 players in Group A, so let’s figure 10 groups of 5 players. You are the 21st player in the group (assuming no change when seeding ratings are used) of 50. That means you will be one of tbe players on the C line on which ever RR group you are in. Which would mean there would be 2 players with higher rating than you and 2 below you. So you will be playing higher rated players in 2nd RR before you get to the 3rd RR.
2 players per group advance to A division I believe. So, there will be 100 players in A. I may have 1 player close to my rating and 5 below.. So, my first 10 matches will be 90% against lower rated players.. 90%.. I like a 50/50 ratio between lower and higher rated players. 9 chances to get upset and 1 chance to upset.. Not a good ratio...

 Nope. There will be 6 groups after the first RR A, B, C, D, E , and F. The winners of each RR in the first RR go to A. 2nd place to B and  3rd to C all the way to group F for 6th place finisher in first RR. They are using the same format they have used in the previous Super tiered RR events. They are just adding a third RR before reaching the SE stage.

Ah, ok, this is better.. I was under the impression that 2 players advance to A but if only one advances, that will be better!

I noticed Tin-Tin Ho (ENG) on the entry list (women's and u21 women) and look forward to watching her play. Her USATT is unrated (or 0) and world rank just outside of top 100. I wonder where she'll be seeded. I get the impression her style is super quick ferocious attacker - all business on the court, pleasant and all smiles off the court. Can she hang with the returning Japanese women who dominated last US Open?

Penholder short pips close to the table, very Asian style game.

She is a sweetheart off the table and all business on it indeed.
