Weak list. Kavcic would be a favorite, but he's playing poorly. Rufin is coming back from injury. Oscar is probably the best name in the draw, but I'm not sold on him winning anything. Hopefully he gets it done here.

Why a WC for Fernandes :confused:

He is a junior Grand Slam champion. Some of them get WC's to Grand Slams, so I don't see why can't one get to a challenger.

Valverde is going to face Semjan in the first round :cool:. Although he is nothing extraordinary will see what he can do against a much better player than him. Good luck!


Kuznetsov will have to face a more experienced player in the first round like Jan Minar and shouldn`t find real troubles to reach the semifinals. The same for Kavcic. Will see what Tiago can do against a much more experienced player.

Oscar Hernandez is the clear favourite in the bottom half of the draw but according to his last performances anything can happen with him.

It's rather odd for that to happen in an Uzbeki Challenger though. It'd be more likely in South American events or even European Challengers, where such WCs are more common.

For sure it's odd.

Anyways it should be good experience for him to play against the 1st seed. He doesn't stand many chances as it's against Kavcic on a clay court, but he will take some lessons from that. He is doing things right in his career, Larri Passos seems to be making the right moves.

Good luck to Tiago, Axel (glad he qualified) and Laurynas.

I hope Oscar wins this event, but I doubt it at this point. He does have a damn easy draw, though. The top half is stronger than the bottom half.

Weird that he didn`t receive that WC for Brasilia or Campos do Jordao last week :confused: :wavey:

Tiago Fernandes without Luck on Singles Draw!

But i believe that he can win of Kavcic or if not win he can make a good game getting win 1 Set!

On Doubles the first round is very good for Fernandes and he have good changes to win.

But the second round if very difficult because the doubles Juska & Pavlovs play very well on Challengers.

He'll probably combine that with the Karshi Challenger next week, and then Astana.

Oscar will be back... but next year. In Barcelona he was about to defeat Melzer, only a few months after it's impossible he could have forgotten how tennis is played.

Probably in the next spanish challengers we'll see a change of his attitude.
