The 2011 Challenger Player of the Year

Not sure if it's too early to run it, but as it's the end of the Challenger Year, we might as well.

The 2011 Challenger Player of the Year



Welcome!

The 2011 Challenger Tour has come to an end, and in staying true to the tradition that was built up in the last five years, it is time to elect the season's best Challenger player. This year saw 146 tournaments being played, with 104 unique tournament winners in singles. Additionally, these winners came from 33 different countries and from 5 different continents. In doubles, 159 players racked up at least one Challenger title. In short, many players enjoyed at least some success, and this means that there are plenty of players to choose from in this year-end competition.

Previous Winners:

Code:
2009 -  Horaico Zellabos
2008 -  Eduardo Schwank
2007 -  Pablo Cuevas
2006 -  Guillermo Cañas


It was also a turbulent year in which several players who started the year in Challengers rose to the Top 100 to get direct entry into Grand Slams (e.g. TBA), while some players formerly performing almost solely at ATP-level could not avoid sliding down the ladder and had to start playing Challengers, with mixed success (e.g. TBA).

While some of these players rose mostly due to successes in events other than Challengers, in this poll you are asked to focus on Challenger results only. In particular, when voting, you are asked to keep the following questions in mind:
  • Who has won the most titles?
  • Who has won the strongest tournaments?
  • Who has the better win/loss record?
  • Who was the best all-court player, racking up successes on all surfaces?
  • Whose game has proven to be the most consistent?
  • Who excelled in both singles and doubles?
In any case, please do not be led by nationalism or fanaticism.

RIP Henry Chinaski. A true MTF legend

Andreas Beck! Only played strong challengers in Europe and none of these weak Asian or American events and had very, very consistent results:

Federer |Söderling |most of the Germans

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

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

Machado I think.... I had a pleasure of watching him win 2 big challengers in Poland and it's safe to say he wiped the floor with competition.

I will burn
And you will die...

Cedrik-Marcel Stebe, altough he won many matches on weak Asia Challengers, i think he was the breaktrough of the year

Gilles Simon
Benoît Paire, Edouard Roger-Vasselin,Nicolas Mahut, Jeremy Chardy, Aljaz Bedene, Florian Mayer, Tommy Robredo, Evgeny Korolev, Albert Ramos, Guillaume Rufin
