The 2006 Challenger Player of the Year

Welcome everyone!

After another turbulent year on the Challenger Tour, arguably made even more turbulent ever since Nathaliia and I have been moderating your posts because of other-wordly languages and obscene gestures ;), it is time to elect who you think has done the best on the Tour! The Challenger Tour, that is. Oh, Maui would not have changed anything in this poll for us!

Who has taken the most titles? Who has won the toughest tournaments? Who has the highest win/loss ratio? Who did the best on all surfaces? Whose game has proven to be most consistent? Who excelled in both singles and doubles? Who has caught your attention?


These are just a few of the questions you might want to look at when voting in our poll. Unfortunately, we could not include all players, so we have had to make a selection ourselves. If your pick is not included, please vote the last option [Other] and tell us why we should not have excluded this guy in our poll!

Introducing...

In no specific order:

... Other

Not satisfied with our choices? Here are a few players we unfortunately could not include in the poll:

  • Alex Bogdanovic (Singles Champion of Wrexham, Bergamo I & Shrewsbury)
  • Florian Mayer (Singles Champion of Tampere, Fürth & Graz)
  • Kristian Pless (Overall solid results, doubles and singles champion of Rimouski)
  • Andre Ghem (Five-time doubles champion, singles champion of Joinville)
  • Maximo Gonzalez (Five-time doubles champion, despite injury problems)
  • Thiago Alves (two doubles titles, two singles titles)
  • And many more
But you can still vote for them in the option 'Other'!

Unbelievable job with this poll Martijn :yeah: :rocker: As I promised, I vote for Behrend. Old useless chap finding himself on a competitive challenger doubles level is begging for your pity votes.

Don't let him down. I don't.

My vote goes to Roitman. He is easy to overlook (I did it too :eek: He is in the poll because Nathaliia did not overlook him ;)), but when looking at his results.. wow. He's been pretty solid all year through and has had awesome results, in both doubles and singles.

:hatoff: Roitman

guys like canas mahut and offcourse hajek deserve it, some other guys like behrend only if you watch at doubles. I voted for Hajek, impressive wins, because although canas comeback is impressive he is a top 20 player and Hajek was new for me

I also want to mention a guy like Robin Haase 19 years old of the Netherlands winning the challenger of Nashville after matches against top 100 players Pless and Dancevic. He also reached 3 semi finals and 3 Quarter Finals in his first half year on the challenger circuit and reached his career high 163

Also Winning Doubles Title in Louisville and Finals in Brasov and Saransk, Semi final in Scheveningen

Of course people treat it as popularity contest, otherwise the tie would be between Devilder and Roitman :p Maybe Mamiit, regarding his great stuff in doubs and some add-ones in singles.

And I told you to put Saretta in :haha:

I think Behrend had also luck to get good partners. Peya would have deserved to get mentioned, more than Behrend imo.

Canas, but before Canas returned I'd have said Tipsarevic

Not for his doubles results at all. Behrend won quite big events, not Peya. Peya did win a $125K+H Challenger (Istanbul), but his singles results have not been good either, so we both gave the edge to Behrend.

I vote for other - Alex Bogdanovic. He had a very good year despite being injured for quite a part of it near the start - so despite that, winning 3 tournaments and improving his ranking by nearly 50 places gets my vote.
Yes, he has had a good year, but has his year been better than, say, Hajek's, Roitman's and so on?

I vote for Boggo aswell, it's simply quite crazy that he isn't on the shortlist, has had a brilliant year - 3 titles and a 125K final among other things.

He's also achieved this despite missing 2 months through injury

It must be a conspiracy from Coocoocachoo as Boggo has beaten so many of his favs this year. That's the only reason I can think of, to explain why he's not on the shortlist
