I would agree that Brown is a debatable pick, but I think that he has made more progress this year than most players. Luczak and Russell are Challenger veterans that haven't really made any progress, but that just have a great track record in Challengers.

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

Going through Malisse's losses in Challengers this year, the only 'bad' loss he had was against Hocevar in Rome

Other losses are against Falla, Tipsarevic, Andujar (Ret.), Baghdatis, Odesnik, Ball, Istomin, De Bakker, but these all don't count as bad losses in my opinion.

It would be interesting to have data about prize money in Challengers, but it would be a hell of work
