Top 30 shouldnt be authorized to play Challengers, this is not fair for low ranked players

It should be an honour to play here, an entrance fee from your part would be more appropriate I guess

You will have to pay for Sauna entries here as well

Yeah, but they are all half the size in points, and they will still be full, probably. Challenger-level players rarely get to play in the ATP-tournaments during the season and they have a hard time rising in the rankings since even when losing in the 1st round, top players score more points than Challenger-players who lose in the 1st round. Now that the ATP-tournaments are over, top players rush to challengers and low- ranked players have to qualify. Rules are rules, but it just doesn´t seem fair. I would have liked to play in my home town tournament, but the field is way too tough...

I can see your point, but this is about 5 weeks per year max.
And if your home tourney really means something to you, you can also play qualies..if I had to I would also play Basel qualies

Re: TT #47a Helsinki - Tennis and Sauna with Jarkko in Finland!

im a top ten now but when i joined the game in the off season of 2006 i had to play qualies, even challenger qualies, and qualies to my home tournament too..no one gifted me a bit of a point.. and i did it i think it is part of the fun, and the journey to get up .. if you try hard enough, you ll get there someday

now im just waiting for maldini to send my entrance fee greedy swiss
