Default Istomin and Sela have given up on qualifing to the Challenger Tour Finals

They are not signed up to any challenger in the next 3 weeks.
This is a really stupid decision, because they could really do well there in this indoor hard tournament with most players being clay specialists...
Istomin won 4 challengers this year and Sela won 3.
This is the current race:

Though Istomin still has a chance, as he is currently 6th in the race, but by a really small margin.

Anyone has any rules about these Finals? Can't really find it in the Rulebook.

7 best players (10 best challenger results count) + Belluci (WC) play in the same format as the WTF.
An undefeated winner will get 92000$ as prize money.
The ranking points are not published yet, but I expect it to be 20 for each round robin win, 40 for the semis, and 50 for the final.

Thanks.

Why Bellucci WC? Is it certain yet? Who decides who get the WC?
Strange choice as he has hardly played any challengers this year...

They couldn't give the WC to another Brazilian player?

I'm sure Filo V will be celebrating this news

IMO, they should've given the WC to the best Brazilian in the Challenger race (right now is Dutra Silva, 17th)

+1

I think they just created it to make Bellucci win something actually.

they have to sell tickets to avoid making a huge loss, therefore they need a well known player like bellucci to promote the event.

who the fuck is going to want to pay to see prodon v klizan on an indoor hardcourt?

as for Istomin and Sela, perhaps they don't even know about the points and prize money they're missing out on?

It seems like there is very little specific info in the public domain.
