Do we know if Kyrgios got a wild card for Mons Challenger in Belgium? Because I'm about to buy some tickets for the tournament if he did

He was originally entered for Sacramento, don't think he would have given up a safe place there unless he knew he was getting in.

You have to buy tickets to Challengers in Belgium? In Australia they are free. Even Grand Slam qualifying is free.

And that is the difference about how tennis is viewed and promoted in Australia compared to the Americas and Europe, even India.
There the Challengers draw a sizable crowd, especially to the semis and finals, normally held on a Friday and Saturday evening and on the weekend, whilst in Australia you get a few officials (have to be there), the player's family member's (if playing near home on the weekend or night), perhaps a few club members (if at a club and they came to have a hit and the courts are full (damn) so just watch a while), the lansdscape gardener and a few passers-by.

In the USA, parts of South America and various places in Europe, entrance fees for spectators to the semis and finals are normal place. Australia is a real "back-water" when it comes to promoting tennis and the level of interest in the general public. Not even so-called "tennis nuts" from the tennis clubs will take time to go and watch a Futures or Challenger event, even if there are five or six top ranked Australians playing.

Having said that, even the player facilities and amenities are far superior to that in Australia, and the player's are all treated as celebrities, which does not happen in Australia, especially Sydney. Playe's parties are organised, promotional functions, dinners, etc. In the USA, at most Challengers (and some Futures) tournaments, player's get billetted, which helps heaps with costs. Not in Australia. At a Challenger this year, an overseas player from Canada, playing in the Main Draw, was told he could not get the official transport as he was not staying at the official hotel in Homebush, but he was staying not far away, just outside Homebush in Newington, where he was sharing to save cost. Oops, gone off on a tangent there...

Perhaps more should be done to promote (advertise) the tennis events in Australia, especially locally.

Yep it's 10-20 euros per ticket, qualifications are free but only if you are quick to get your tickets. It is actually quite a big event: http://www.ethiastrophy.be

I love it when international events give Aussies wildcards!
And we don't give anyone anything unless it's a deal where we get something in return
But seriously, it's not like Sweden has any of their own players worthy of wildcards haha.

His Twitter says he's going to the USA so I'm guessing not - I'm not entirely sure why he had Mons listed on his schedule when he was entered into all the USA Challengers.

He is definitely playing in Sacremento and Tiburon. Players will enter in multiple tournaments as a precaution if they think they'll miss the cut off.
