No Evans, No Ward, No Cox...........I think we know where three of the Queens' wildcards are going.

I'd be surprised if Edmund isn't playing at Queens also and another title for Muller?

Great field for the surface. This is where Muller has the best chance of clinching a Wimbledon WC.

Re: Week 24: Nottingham 2, UK [Entry List]

Will this be the last edition of this second Challenger, or will they keep both Challenger next year when Nottingham hosts ATP 250 at the Nottingham tennis Centre?

Re: Week 24: Nottingham 2, UK [Entry List]

Interesting question. Who knows? I guess atm only main sponsor insurance company AEGON knows answer ;)
This year we have 2 challengers in Nottingham (AEGON Trophy and AEGON Nottingham Challenge) on 23th and 24th week.

And full grass calendar this year:
week 23: Nottingham-1 challenger (AEGON Trophy)
week 24: ATP250 Queen's (AEGON Championships) + ATP250 Halle + Nottingham-2 challenger (AEGON Nottingham Challenge)
week 25: ATP250 Eastbourne (AEGON International) + ATP250 's-Hertogenbosch + Wimbledon qualies
weeks 25-26: Wimbledon
week 27: Newport

In 2015 grass calendar we see many changes (new events, WB will shifted a week later etc):
week 23: ATP250 's-Hertogenbosch + ATP Stuttgart
week 24: ATP250 Queen's (AEGON Championships) + ATP250 Halle
week 25: ATP Nottingham (AEGON 250) + Wimbledon qualies
weeks 26-27: Wimbledon
week 28: Newport

What calendar places will be for grass challengers if any? I see threats to both Nottingham challengers. Last years Nottingham-1 attracted interesting players as only grass event on week 23. In 2015 it would compete with ATP250 events as Nottingham-2 this year (so field will be weaker). Will AEGON refuse from sponsoring challenger(s) next year? Will AEGON organize new challenger in Eastbourne instead? Or Nottingham will find another sponsor? Or challengers will change time-frames? Many questions arise...

I guess we'll still have a grass court challenger in the UK in the 2nd week of RG. But not sure where (Eastbourne?).

I agree. I forgot that next year RG will take weeks 21-22 (this year RG takes weeks 22-23). So we may have challenger on week 22...

Re: Week 24: Nottingham 2, UK [Entry List]

Aren't Halle and Queen ATP 500 for 2015?
Edit: Yes, they are!
PS1: AEGON might take 22 week for challenger 1 and 23 week for Ch2. It all looks great so far

It depends on match result. If Kutrovsky will win the match with Matosevic, he is eligible to be considered for a special exempt position.
