Perhaps, but if he meets Erik in the final, would you want to say that he will win the match 100%.

Will I know if he is healthy? Will he even know if he is healthy? If he is, I would say 98% on hard courts AV wins and 100% on clay courts, yes. But AV hasn't been healthy since 04? or 05? Not sure when, but its been a really long time.

Yes, but even at his peak, which was 11 years ago, he was #33, so I don't know that he would even be top 100 if he was healthy now.

Challengers are the next step up from futures and are to help you prepare for the atp tour and then once you get good enough in challengers you start transitioning to the main tour, hopefully forever leaving the challengers behind. Some guys need to go back and forth between challengers and the atp tour.

Erik can love the game all he wants but there are plenty of challengers for him to to get in to or try and get in to. Yes there are some great young players playing the futures tour but there is a real difference between the challengers and futures tour

if he wants to make an earning playing this game then why not try and play the events that will earn you more money? futures only really help you if you do good in them point wise and the money isnt that great

also if he does have an injury even if its just a small one why not take the time off to get rid of it and then go back and play at a higher level

besides if he is injured to the point where its affecting his play that much and he really cant fight through it then maybe ikt would be better to tak time off.
Yeah but if he is lightly injured and then packs it in, he ll likely slip out of entry in Aussie Open qualies, not to mention lose his rhythm while on the sidelines. (At the same time is would be calculated risk, as he may become more injured.) If he isn't injured and this is about confidence, his lack of confidence would likely explain his pure judgement in doing this to try to improve his confidence. (a downward spiral is underway). Or maybe he knows that his confidence comes and goes, and that in January he could be on the rise again, and playing Futures now just allows him to wait out low confidence now and be able to play the qualies when it returns...

To your point that this is rather poor sportsmanship - perhaps players with a certain ranking should simply be barred from entry into Futures events (or a new name for these tourneys should be come up with!).

Chvojka is 214 in rankings, 227 in the race.
Thanks for pointing this out.

Oh yeah, he is in, but as a LL, he didn't actually qualify for it.

Isn't he still a junior btw?

All I know is he's ranked in the 1000's as a junior.

Once he had to play 4 qualy rounds to get into a Futures, but lost the 4th of course.

Re: Canadian Players 2

A Canadian named Ryan Chow just earned his first ATP point in a futures event in Burundi. Qualified and won a round. Does anybody have info on him?
