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.
