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

They couldn't give the WC to another Brazilian player?

I'm sure Filo V will be celebrating this news

IMO, they should've given the WC to the best Brazilian in the Challenger race (right now is Dutra Silva, 17th)

+1

I think they just created it to make Bellucci win something actually.

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

they have to sell tickets to avoid making a huge loss, therefore they need a well known player like bellucci to promote the event.

who the fuck is going to want to pay to see prodon v klizan on an indoor hardcourt?

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

as for Istomin and Sela, perhaps they don't even know about the points and prize money they're missing out on?

It seems like there is very little specific info in the public domain.

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

And who would pay for Ungur indoor on hard?

I'd pay for Istomin and Sela though

Re: Challenger Tour Finals - São Paulo on Harmony Club

Hmm, so that means some players refused to participate in this event? Prodon, Rosol, Istomin, Ungur and Robert were all ranked higher than Reynolds and Stebe.

But I won't complain. On the one hand I'm happy that Stebe got in as the third German player And on the other hand Sela, Reynolds and Stebe are better hardcourt players than Prodon, Rosol or Ungur. So it's an improvement for the quality of the field.

Now the only pure clay courter left is Rui Machado (who won a set against Federer in Davis Cup on indoor hardcourt!). Klizan also gained almost all of his points on clay court, but he did win an indoor hard challenger last year in Bratislava. I also don't think Thomaz Belluci is that comforable on indoor hardcourt, so I don't really see him as the favourite here. This is going to be interesting! I hope they'll provide a good live broadcast...

Re: Challenger Tour Finals - São Paulo on Harmony Club

Bellucci lost to Sela at USO, so I think he's not the big favorite on hardcourt.

Re: Challenger Tour Finals - São Paulo on Harmony Club

Has anybody yet found any information about how many ranking points will be awarded?

Sela didn't play 10, too. Only 10 count. If you have less it doesn't matter.

@Zack On their website you can read it in Portoguese. But I think it's understandable. http://www.challengerfinals.com.br/informacoes.asp
