If you liked the tournament and the idea of it thanks to the brazilians Thomaz Koch, it was his idea.
I liked the idea. I don´t like WC for Belluci, attendance, TV coverage, in fact, I don´t like it was held in Sao Paolo.

Also I don´t like points for that tournament. If someone win Helsinki, then gets even more than Stebe get. I would prefer 20 pts for win in group, 40 for win in semis and 60 for win in final, cause it should be ultimately the best what challenger circuit offer. It would be good to change the host city for next years.

I think Stebe could improve his volleys and his second serve. However, he's aggressive on return and good on both wings, plus pretty speedy. So, a promising future, for sure.

the only problem with this tournament is though that unless cedrik plays and does well enough on the challenger tour next year he's got no chance at all to defend his points and so come this time next year thats 125 points dropped off his total

unless they give him a wild card

He can win a november challenger next year and getting more point as this week. It's the same like in every tournement. The points are dropped after one year...

wc for best brazilian in challenger next time I agree, but they need some excuse to attract the public
attendance was fine in the final despite having not bellucci in the final
tv coverage...looked fine for me at least when I watched...local brazilian tv showed almost all matches
It was held in Sao Paulo because it was sao paulo people that wanted sponsors and gave the idea for this event...imagine that they wanted this as a warmup for brasil open 2012...if the event doesnt work next year it miht change, but i think sao paulo people at least showed good intentions and planted the seed.
