Re: Week 37 : Szczecin (Entry List)

Good list this season, and will be interesting to see who the WC's are. Florent has had good runs here and I hope he can muster up another, he's in desperation zone. GL to all my favorites, I hope one of my lower ranked faves like Bjorn or Florent take the title.

What? Okay, he needs to defend a LOT of points in this year though. I'm glad anyway. Good luck Marcel!!!

Re: Week 37 : Szczecin (Entry List)

Hopefully no-one ranked in the top 100 wins the event. Virtually all of these really big challengers have been won by guys within the top 100 and it's pathetic. Totally defeats the purpose of the challenger series.

I'll be pissed if Granollers, Hanescu, Ramos or another high-ranked WC wins here. They all will hopefully be stopped QF and earlier.

Filo, they have place in the top 100 when they beat top 100 players.

Anyway I don't mind if Marcel won't win title here, Bucharest comes in following week. And he is always injured in these weeks, he doesn't need too lot of matches.

Never ever give up

Albert Ramos Vinolas is my choice for this.

R.I.P Mathieu Montcourt !

Re: Week 37 : Szczecin (Entry List)

No Spaniard has ever won this challenger. Ever. And bigger names than Ramos and Granollers tried

Latin American guys have here the biggest chances by statistics.
We'll see.

Janowicz is out because he'll play Davis Cup.
