Re: The 2009 Challenger Player of the Year [TBA]

Zeballos
five titles(Bogota I-Buenos Aires-Manta(hard)-Campos do Jordao(hard)-Bucaramanga) in eight finals(Bogota II-Cali-Pereira), 2 semifinals(Brasilia-Sao Paulo) = 48/14(30/9 on clay - 19/5 on hard). to 199º to 45º
Undoubtedly the best player of the year. Next Davis Cup player

TT Ranking
I WILL BACK...


GENIUS1787 R.I.P. friend. See you soon.
