Re: Mariano's Challengers' Thread 2007
Looks like Puerta was a very late withdrawl.
A few months ago Ljubicic and Gimelstob in the ATP players council lobbied for a complete ban on Challenger wildcards for previously banned players, and the players council apparently asked the ATP to ban wildcards. After Puerta did not get a main draw wild card in Kazachstan last month, it is starting to look like the ATP is putting pressure on tournaments to ban Puerta (no wildcards).
