Last year winner Mike Russell said this was “by far the best Challenger event in the country” and he would donate 5% of his prize money to the Center!

Re: Week 45: Knoxville, USA [Entry List]

Sanam Singh d. Joshmug Mugton 62 61

Decent result but three games, Sanam...really?

I watched couple of games and Milton is so bad. I can't believe how he could enter Top 500. Milton can lose to anyone who can play tennis. I am sure he would lose a lot of sets against unknown college players like against Shane or Daigle. I hope this mug will play qualies in Champaign, too...hopefully again nice odds against this mug. :-)

RIP HENRY.
