Challenger Tour Finals - São Paulo on Ibirapuera Gymnasium

The tournament would be on São Paulo and will be with the 7 players who get more points with Challengers and with one Wild Card that São Paulo would give.

Prize Money of the tournament would be 220.000 Dolars!

I don't know if this information is true.

On a blog of Dalcim that is from TenisBrasil (Greatest Forum of Tenis on Brazil) he asked this on portuguese:

São Paulo ganha evento - A promotora Koch Tavares convocou a imprensa para uma coletiva na segunda-feira. Vai anunciar um "evento de repercussão mundial" em São Paulo, para o mês de novembro e por isso até o alto escalão da ATP virá para o anúncio.

O que posso adiantar é que será um torneio valendo pontos para o ranking, com premiação inferior ao Brasil Open e está garantido no país por três anos consecutivos. O local escolhido, pelo menos para 2011, é o saibro do clube Harmonia. Os outros detalhes prometi não contar.

This on portuguese is talking that Brazil would win a tournament with Points to Ranking ATP with less money than Brasil Open ( ATP 250 ).

And the son of a great commentator talked in one Forum that the tournament would be a Challenger Tour Finals.

I don't know if the rumors are true. Anyone can confirm? And if it's true what do you think about this tournament?

Kostas Kastoria is the King, is the Legend, is the Pantheon of Tennis Tipping.

Saulin, Felipin and Niltin are the players that have the mission to continue the Greek Legacy.

Hellas Team with the Bless of Baghdatis and Kostas.

Re: Challenger Tour Finals - São Paulo on Harmony Club

Yes Its true I have seen it from contact with one of the organziers of the event Koch tavares. It will be like a MC for challengers the best 8 challenger players of the year and it will have a considerable money prize for the winner 92 thousand dollars. In my view it would be better to bring another ATP tournament to Brazil or make it a 500, but it will be very close to my house and is a chance of seeing some good tennis.

Re: Challenger Tour Finals - São Paulo on Harmony Club

Haven't they usually had a similar tournament at the end of the year called the Petrobras Cup or something or is this one different?

Re: Challenger Tour Finals - São Paulo on Harmony Club

Copa Petrobas is a series of South American tournaments in October-December IIRC.

This is like the TMC of the challenger tour, great idea

Re: Challenger Tour Finals - São Paulo on Harmony Club

That list doesn't update each week. I will try and find a way to set that up if no one else does.

Re: Challenger Tour Finals - São Paulo on Harmony Club

Thanks amirbachar for the link. The list is very interesting and there is a little point gaps between the players. I suppose it might be many changes till the end of the season.

Re: Challenger Tour Finals - São Paulo on Harmony Club

Fantastic idea

Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the top?

Roger // Rafa // Raonic // Söderling // Goffin // Ivo // Wawrinka // Baker // Delpo

Re: Challenger Tour Finals - São Paulo on Harmony Club

TORCIDA DUPLA POR BELLUCCI

Em novembro, São Paulo recebe o ATP Challenger Tour Finals. Além dos sete melhores tenistas do ano em torneios do nível, será convidado um jogador do Brasil. Para poder atuar, Thomaz Bellucci não pode estar no top 10.

"Queremos que o Bellucci participe, mas também queremos que ele esteja entre os 10 melhores do mundo no fim do ano", disse Luis Felipe Tavares, presidente da Koch Tavares, empresa que organiza o torneio e administra a carreira do jovem.

"Vamos ficar em duas torcidas: uma para ele participar e outra, para ele não participar. Se ele estiver entre os 10 melhores do mundo, não vai poder participar. Nossa torcida vai ser dupla", completou Tavares.

Luis Felipe Tavares, founder of the project ATP Challenger Tour Finals, just announced that the Brazilian high-rank player Thomaz Bellucci will receive the WC (wild card) as the ''home player''. He just won't receive it, if he breaks into Top10 on ATP Singles Rankings. A Top10 player can't play any Challenger events, according with rules.
