I don't like tournaments like these, because an ATP guy is going to win it, and this is the challenger series. It takes points away from guys who need it, like Malisse beating Hernych, or Serra beating Mahut. It isn't fair to me, and it makes me resent the tournament and the ATP players in it.

I agree with you there. Do you think they should raise the entry barrier to say 60 or even 75 rather than 50?

Like 70-80. And maybe special events where anyone can enter, maybe like 5-6 a year only, spread throughout the season. But not these events like Bordeaux or Prostejov where guys ranked 70 win every season, when they aren't even in danger of falling out of the top 100. That's ridiculous. The ATP doesn't seem to care about anyone but the top players, which is sad.

Shhit. I knew he was talented but some of the shots he hit just had me shouting "NO WAY!" at my computer. That was just a stunning performance. I thought his level would drop after he missed triple bp in the first game of the second set but he just started playing even better.

'Wow' is definitely the right word to describe that. In the second set Delgado started hitting the ball much harder and being more aggressive and Benoit would just retrieve and counterpunch for a bit before smashing a backhand crosscourt or down the line or just completely taking all the power off the ball and hitting a dropshot winner. Don't know how good he is on grass but i'm so looking forward to seeing him at Wimbledon qualies now.
