Hi Nathii
Ignatik played in the past in Sao Paulo. Definitely is not a good idea to play in San Pablo and then the quallies at the quallies in Australia. But with his present ranking and pretty much in advance he could have organized a trip to play Noumea and AO quallies. Not a cheap trip to book it now but not impossible to do that in advance (Minsk - Sydney - Minsk and a round trip one from Sydney-Noumea-Sydney).The only problem is the organization of the Challenger tour because under my opinion there shouldn't been a two weeks gap between AO quallies and Tasmania - Adelaide Challengers. In that way most players that did it on the quallies would remain there and then play those Challengers which may guarantee a better entry list

and as you well say I find that is not so reasonable to travel to Australia to just play the AO quallies. It's too expensive for a Challenger level player.
