Re: Week 18: Ramat Hasharon, Israel

double the prizes of last year, if I remember correctly. Let's hope for a better entry list than last year's, which was one of the weakest in the entire challenger tour. Primarily, I would expect Dudi Sela to come and play in front of the home fans.

Re: Week 18: Ramat Hasharon, Israel

You were the strange guy, who didn't even want to attend the tournament last year despite free admission right?

Yes, that was me, and I didn't attend. I stood behind everything I said last year, and still do.

I'm not sure about this, if I remember well Hadad was unranked or with very poor ranking (due to few activity) and played futures in Israel from qualies and only did not better than Levy and Okun, who are a actually more Challenger level players.

yes, but he did well in very weak futures in israel, so not sure about how he will do in the strong challenger in Ramat Hasharon (it should be strong with those early entries).
