But still this is a good looking entry list IMO. Maybe the reason for that is that this is the only challenger tournament in Europe on week 46.

Favorite players: Nieminen, Dolgopolov, Del Potro, Fognini, J.Sousa, Dreddy , Monfils, Wawrinka, Goffin, Tomic, Nishikori, Kyrgios

No Benjamin Becker?

I guess he's happy with his ranking for this season.
It started off quite badly but has managed to keep it
about #80 which was his Protected Ranking two years ago.
A good ranking to get into the Main Draw of many tournaments
for next season.
Hopefully he'll get a nice draw in a big tournament next season
to break into the top 50.
He deserves it.

Go Benni!

Nicolas Kiefer

Benjamin Becker

Re: Week 46: Helsinki, Finland [Entry List]

so far With only Rufin out, all seeds are in the top 100, definitely didn't deserve to be downgraded.

Re: Week 46: Helsinki, Finland [Entry List]

Disappointing ending to De Bakker's disappointing season. Can't believe he ended up being so far away form the top 100, despite having no long term injury.
