But constantly whining about how hard challengers are is starting to annoy me. The fact that you had an awful record in challengers just seems to show that they're hard for you. Plenty of players can know who is more likely to win between say, Dudi Sela and Jhonson Garcia easier than they can judge who will win a match between players like Fererro and Gaudio. I admit, there can be really obscure guys in challengers, but assuming you have as much knowledge as your opponent then you are in the same position.
I know a lot about tennis.
And I watch tennis,i follow tennis....
But not that much challengers..
Yeah,I have a bad record in challengers,but that doesn't mean I suck...
I can lose 10 times in a challenger first round (and i will for sure
),and then come up with an Grand Slam...
Two things:1.For me,challenger matches will always be harder to predict,because I DONT KNOW A LOT OF PLAYERS who are playing.I heard about them,but never watched them and that's a handicap..
2.You cannot ignore this,low ranked players and newcomers should have a chance to achive something and improve their rankings by PLAYING A FEW ATP TOURNEYS!
