Maybe Blake could have played the Asia swing (at least for the 250 and 500 events - I believe Donald Young was around the same ranking prior to his Bangkok run) but if it's possible for him to stay in the US and build up the points, I say go for it. Querrey - how can you even judge his game right now when the loss is to Karlovic? - has no choice but to play events like this because he's outside the Top 100.

I think it's fascinating that a challenger tournament could draw serious American interest - and revenue. Outside of an event like Sunrise, that's pretty cool.

We should feel sorry for them because ATP players regularly steal points and money from them when they are in desperate need of it.

There are other challengers the same week, some challengers are used to have great fields (Sunrise), player can choose lesser challengers event so we shouldn't be sorry for them.

The problem is that he's not serious about tennis competition.

If he had the will and desire of the players his height, he would have made an excellent challenger.

He's got a solid serve and a strong forehand all thanks to his height. But he doesn't show any passion or commitment.

Ivo's carrying three 0s in optional tournaments on his ranking and at #76 and no protected ranking he couldn't get into Japan or China this week so challenger makes sense. If he can replace one of those 0s with a 100 here it should do some major help by boosting him back near #60 so he can start getting back into ATP events.

Good to see former top guys trying to get back their games by playing challengers instead of whining for wild cards like Ivanovic.
