Re: Challenger Tour Finals - São Paulo on Harmony Club

Beck has to win his group, this is one of the easiest draws possible for him (Machado instead of Bellucci would have been easier). Despite being a HC mug Bellucci should finish 2nd in his group.
In the yellow group probably Bachinger and Sela will advance. Machado won't have any chance I think and Stebe only a small one (indoors is clearly not his surface).

Federer |Söderling |most of the Germans

I also like: Wawrinka | Tsonga | Dimitrov | Isner | Gulbis |

Warm regards: 6-3 6-0 / 6-3 6-4

Bad draw for Rui, specially Sela. I think Dudi is the big favourite to win this Masters. With the germans he will have a chance but it's not easy too...

Re: Challenger Tour Finals - São Paulo on Harmony Club

Dudi has been generally playing awful lately, so I can't see him as a favorite really...

Re: Challenger Tour Finals - São Paulo on Harmony Club

Stebe will probably beat Dudi. I don't expect Dudi to bring his A game here. I also think Stebe can beat Machado. Really, Stebe can and should beat all three players if he's playing well. Rui has said he's tired and he's obviously not an HC player, and Bachinger hasn't had great results of late. Stebe has taken the past few weeks off to get ready here and I expect a lot from him.

As for the other half, Andi Beck is the clear favorite but I think Bellucci can beat him. Both should make the SF.

Re: Challenger Tour Finals - São Paulo on Harmony Club

Andreas Beck is a bit overrated. He isn´t the same player he was cca. one year ago. He is beatable on this level now. Bellucci is a clear favorite in my mind, with Klizan vs. Beck fighting for second spot in that group. Their opening match will be the key. I would also say that Bellucci´s group is clearly the stronger one. Reynolds could win one match...

I think Bachinger and Sela will come through the second group, but Stebe has some chances. Machado is the biggest underdog of whole tournament, I think he will lose every single match here.

Re: Challenger Tour Finals - São Paulo on Harmony Club

I put my cash on the idiot beck because his price was attractive. (11.0)

Livescorehunter have Sao Paulo on the list. My pick of todays winners: Stebe, Machado, Klizan and Bellucci.

  • Tomas Berdych beating Roger in Cincy - start of a good late season run
  • Radek Stepanek winning D.C. - back to top 30, top 20 next
  • Lukas Rosol RG R3, challenger titles - deserves top 100

Support also: Söderling, del Potro, Gulbis, Berankis
