Re: Week 12: Sunrise, Florida, USA

Re: Week 12: Sunrise, Florida, USA

The point system is silly. Before a pair of years they worked with bonus points for beating good players. It is just silly, cause in these challenger you really can crash out in every round! And for what? For 10 points, for 20 Points...and so on...

in Memphis you win two rounds and have 60 points or so and your opponents are weaker then here!

Is it in the 2nd week of Miami? So i think some players will pull out, cause they still play in Miami.

it's in the 2nd week of IW so those who go to 3d round (I think) of IW have to pull out
many players use it not for points but to prepare for Miami since it's in Florida as well

Always a quality field and as has been said it's more of a preparation for Miami, than the points.

I am surprised to not see the title holder who is just coming back from an injury and has not played for 6 months...

Re: Week 12: Sunrise, Florida, USA [Entry List]

This tournament always starts out looking strong and then the mass exodus of players begins on Saturday afternoon and it drops like a stone. I would not be surprised to see the wildcards change as well, but it will still be a good field.
