ah ok thanks anyway, I was actually hoping to see if there was going to be anymore challenger tournaments held in Australia after the US Open. Usually there are future tournaments held in that period but I'm curious if there are going to be challengers down here because we really need some more tournaments in the Oceanic region during that period of time.
Yeah that's a good question.
If we go back to 2007, there was a 3-week stint late-November to early-December incorporating Caloundra, Brisbane and Burnie...but nothing listed for 2008 in those week slots. Of course, this year, you have already had the Burnie challenger, and Brisbane was upgraded to '250' status. Plus another challenger event in Melbourne. I guess, to put it into perspective, Great Britain holds 3-5 challenger events per year, so it is unlikely that you guys will exceed our number. So, while I don't have a concrete answer, my guess is that Australia won't be holding another challenger event until the very end of the year/start of 2010.
