ATP Challenger Tour "Player Spotlight" curse
 
Did anybody else notice that the so called "Player Spotlight" on the ATP Challenger Tour page seems to be cursed?

I have no stats about this, but almost everytime the player that's presented there (usually one of the top seeds in a current challenger tournament) gets an early 1st or 2nd round exit. Recent examples: This week Marinko Matosevic 1st round loss in Burnie, last week Andrey Golubev 1st round loss in Heilbronn.

Maybe being in the spotlight just puts too much pressure on these players :p

Btw I don't know if this thread belongs here or in the General Messages board, if it's the latter there's probably an admin who can move it there please.

Yes, agree. Today when I saw new image of the page, I also thought about the same :)

last week Andreas Seppi actually won the Bergamo tournament, but this week Denis Gremelmayr was hit by the curse: First round exit in Meknes to Guillermo Olaso...

I've been paying attention to this pattern for over a year, it's very funny :lol: Happens practically every week for a long-haul period, not just in 2011!

I noticed this on my own a few years ago, and Im surprised that others caught on. Mr. Seppi won Bergamo last week, however.

And another week with Gremelmayer in the spotlight, which caused him to withdraw from the tournament in Casablanca (official withdrawal reason is "flu", but actually it's "fear" ;))

Not quite the same, but Tursunov is the "headliner" on the Challenger page, and he just lost R1 in Dubai...
