Bellucci will ruin the tournament.

Re: Challenger Tour Finals - São Paulo on Harmony Club

Surely a better option would be to award the WC to the Brazilian who amassed the most Challenger points over the year, rather than Bellucci?

Re: Challenger Tour Finals - São Paulo on Harmony Club

Last year there was a thread on MTF "can Bellucci win RG" and now he will play a challenger final... the mighty has fallen! I also think the WC should be given to the highest ranked Brazilian in the challenger ranking, or at least to some journeyman who balances between challengers and ATP (so he doesn't have as many chall. points as he could) like Mello!

The ATP posted the race to the Challenger Tour Finals.
The best 10 tournaments count:

Re: Challenger Tour Finals - São Paulo on Harmony Club

I like the concept and i also think it's a great idea but i think it should've been the first 8 players with best results in challenger tour not 7 + 1 WC
Bellucci is not a challenger level player anymore so i don't know why he is getting a WC
If Bellucci plays, many of player probably won't have a chance

This is a stupid decision

This would be a good decision if they really want to give WC to someone

Re: Challenger Tour Finals - São Paulo on Harmony Club

After Stebe's two titles in Asia he should make a huge jump into the top 10 of that list. Another week like that in Ningbo and he will most likely secure his spot in the top 7

Does anybody know how many ranking points the winner will be awarded? Will they have a system similar to the World Tour Finals?

Btw, I guess Rosol and especially Machado and Prodon are not really happy that the finals will be played on indoor hardcourt :P

Re: Challenger Tour Finals - São Paulo on Harmony Club

That´s a great idea. I´m also interested in points system on this tournament. Klizan is leading the race now, he needs probably one more good challenger to secure the spot in Brazil. But he is also not very comfortable on indoor hardcourts, although there are also worse players than him in this...

Istomin and Sela have given up on qualifing to the Challenger Tour Finals

They are not signed up to any challenger in the next 3 weeks.
This is a really stupid decision, because they could really do well there in this indoor hard tournament with most players being clay specialists...
Istomin won 4 challengers this year and Sela won 3.
This is the current race:

Though Istomin still has a chance, as he is currently 6th in the race, but by a really small margin.

Anyone has any rules about these Finals? Can't really find it in the Rulebook.

7 best players (10 best challenger results count) + Belluci (WC) play in the same format as the WTF.
An undefeated winner will get 92000$ as prize money.
The ranking points are not published yet, but I expect it to be 20 for each round robin win, 40 for the semis, and 50 for the final.

Thanks.

Why Bellucci WC? Is it certain yet? Who decides who get the WC?
Strange choice as he has hardly played any challengers this year...
