and rightly so.

Baghdatis kept playing challengers until finally he's found his form when it really mattered.

That having been said, I am actually myself considering voting for him over Zeballos, because I think many of the events Zeballos won were extremely weak. It'd be interesting to calculate the average ranking of the opponents he came across and compare them with the others. I am sure that figure will be quite a bit lower. Nonetheless, at the end of the year he did show that he is able to beat some top players.
and this.

so here we go,

1 - De Bakker
2 - Hajek
3 - Luczak

If anything, the fact that the points you can win in Challengers have been lowered this year is a bad thing.
I don´t think so. For me it is a huge difference to beat at least one Top 10 to Top 30 player and several from the Top 50 to win a World Tournament or to beat one player out of the Top 100 and the rest from 100-300. This is not a "small" difference. My proposal: just give Challenger tournaments more prize money but less points.

And for me it is "luck" if a good challenger player reaches a final or semi final of a World Tour tournament. A good draw and luck and there you are. It is logical is that these players are not able to repeat such a success immediately. For me, this is a "one-hit-wonder" which is nothing unusual.

Just look at Zeballos: besides the "lucky strike" in St.Petersburg, there was nothing at all on the tour. The ranking points table is a joke.

Michael-Ray Pallares reached the first round of a challenger qualifying last year, he is not just the best player this year but he is the best player of all time!

He lost 0 and 1 but hes still an awesome player. He will tell you he is a big David Cupper despite the fact hes played one match.

I find it seriously disrespectful that you are trying to turn this thread, which I put quite some effort into, into a bit of a joke. I'd actually delete your idiotic posts, but I guess I don't have a valid reason to do so. But that doesn't make the posts any less idiotic.
