2006 Challenger Calendar

Has anyone seen the 2006 calendar showing the Main, Challenger and Futures events for next year?

I know the Futures events are on the ITF website and the Main tour are on the ATP website but havn't found any of the Challenger events.

Re: 2006 Challenger Calendar

The calendar is only released 3 months at a time; there are constant changes so I guess they don't want to mislead people

Wouldn't doubt it if they waited until the week after Christmas.

Titles: 2005 - PAW Washington 2006 - PTS Marseille, TT Miami Doubles(w/coreyschucky), TT Tokyo Singles 2007 - TT Hamburg Doubles(w/SarettaFan) 2008 - TT Indianapolis Singles Finalist: 2005 - PAW Montreal & Bucharest 2006 - TT Acapulco Singles & Doubles(w/Iza), TT Houston Doubles(w/robrulz5), PTS Monte Carlo, TT Barcelona Doubles(w/Peta Pan), TT Newport Doubles(w/adee-gee), PAW Umag 2007 - TT Queen's Singles & Doubles(w/SarettaFan), TT Champaign Doubles(w/TommyB.) 2008 - TT Auckland Doubles(w/invu2day), TT Recanati Singles, TT Newport Doubles(w/sploush), TT Indianapolis Doubles(w/sploush)

Re: 2006 Challenger Calendar

Steve G has some of this info on his website (http://stevegtennis.com/atpres06.htm). The USTA has their calendar of confirmed events up on their website. Keep checking the ITF and ATP sites, as well as the individual federations since they organize the Challengers (and there is a list of the National federations on Steve G's links page).

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Re: 2006 Challenger Calendar

I've noticed SteveG has finally added Sunrise to their 2006 calendar. It is the same week as last year (right before the week Miami begins), but it says it is a 25k event (it was 100k last year). It also says (IC) under what I believe to be the surface for the tournament. Surely this does not mean indoor clay?

Does anyone have any info on Sunrise 2006? Anything would be appreciated.

18th-23rd July Manchester (25K+H)
24-29th July Nottingham (25k+H)
24-28th October Edinburgh (25k+H)
21-25th November Sutton (25k+H)

I assume that there may be an element of 'subject to confirmation' about some of these but I think you can be pretty sure.

Surbiton is late this time It was 30-5th last time I think. Anyway, hopefully I am recovered by that time, if so I will be going to surbiton

Re: 2006 Challenger Calendar

But Surbiton is still the second week of RG just like it was before, so the timing is the same and it should get a decent field. Selfishly, I hope you go again because you take excellent photos (and your photo of JMG is still on my homepage).

If I go, it will be with a press pass. The travelling isnt that bad, I quite like the event. So the images will be alot better, last time I went to surbiton, the positions werent good for photos, because I had no pass. Anyway, it was my first event too, since then I have improved with each event I have been to. Last time I managed to get some nice practice shots I think, but this time I hope to get some matchplay shots because of the situation you are located to take photos (if you are press). I really cant wait for the 2006 uk season Being at tennis events, is probably my favourite place to be!!

Re: 2006 Challenger Calendar

From May 1-7, 2006 Atlanta, Ga is going to be having a $25,000+H Challenger!

It will be on green clay at the Atlanta Athletic Club. There will also be a main draw singles wild card tournament.

I am so excited!!!
