No, not his hometown, but he usually plays these big clay court challengers in the Czech Republic...Wouldn't be surprised if he isn't on the entry list for Prostejov the second week of the French Open..

His ranking is too high now to be playing Challengers...Hopefully, he sticks to just the ATP events...He is signed up for both Aegon tournaments in preparation for Wimbledon

Prostejov would make sense, but him being here is rather ridiculous. Coming off a title he should have rested. There is something to be said for honoring your commitment though.

Andreas Haider-Maurer’s hobby is probably speculating with the practice courts because as soon as the schedule comes out, he grabs the practice courts schedule and spends half an hour analyzing it and booking the courts. The practice paid off as he took out Andrej Martin easily. Martin was the victim of his own unforced errors. During the match, Martin told his father to go away rather angrily. After the match he came to talk to him, telling him that he “really liked him as a father, but during the matches he couldn’t have him there”.

Well, he is not playing Madrid and didn't sign up for it. Basically, he is trying to fight for a seeding at Roland Garros. If he would not have won Bucharest, he wouldn't be in contention for a seeding right now, more than likely.

He still has a chance to grab one of the last seedings at the French Open if he wins Ostrava and wins two matches in Rome qualifying. Next week will do him well to have time off to rest. A lot is going to depend on if he qualifies for Rome and maybe wins a match in the main draw and how well or how poorly Klizan (who has 170 points to defend the next two weeks), Granollers (90 points to defend, but could win Tunisia Challenger this week), Melzer (45 points to defend) and Youzhny (45 or 90 points to defend) do in Madrid and Rome.

If I were him, I would probably have sucked it up too and played knowing I might get a seeding at the French Open. It is still a possibility, but he really needs to at least make the F here or win the whole thing to really be in contention, in my estimation. The last events that count are Rome and Madrid.

A day off will be good for him tomorrow and I hope he fights like hell to win this Challenger; knowing a seeding at RG is on the line and a week of rest in sight. Keep going, Lukas

And yes, hopefully he signs up for Prostejov the week of June 3rd because he won't be in the second week of the French Open, more than likely, and a seeding at Wimbledon will depend on him winning at least a round at the French Open and gaining some more points at Prostejov or Queen's Club (on grass) the week of June 10th. It would really suck to just miss out on a seeding at one or both of these Grand Slams

Raining heavily in Ostrava. Today's schedule is very much in danger, I guess.

To be fair Busta was already doing very well at challengers a couple of years ago before his injuries.
