At least Amir has gained +11 ranks in the ATP rankings, he is now #270 !
I think it explains why a lot of players tend to play Futures & Challengers
in their local area. Last year I was wondering why so few US players were playing
challengers outside the US. Even if it is natural that all the player like to play
on home soil, the money saved in travelling is an important factor also...
Well, as an Israeli, Amir (and the rest of the Israeli players) are sort of stuck. Israel has one challenger, no futures I believe, and they can't play locally in the middle east, so they must travel abroad, which means flights.
