Challengers history or not

Reply

I'm just wondering is Andy doing anymore Challengers or is he giving it up for good?

Who said anything about giving that up? I sure hope he doesn't... They are also very important and I don't think he's planning on stopping playing those dontknow

I just heard somewhere that Andy said after he lost in a certain challenger event last year that he was quitting the challengers and just doing atp tournaments, Grand slams etc but I agree with you because like you said it's really important and plus you get more match practise.

i think it was Xavier Malisse he was playing in the challenger and Andy had to retire because of injury maybe that was the reason he thought of quitting challengers dontknow

Wasn't it because the lights went and the match had to be suspended for around 45 minutes whilst they fixed it?

Yeah I think your right, he was pretty annoyed that happened.

That wasn't the Malisse match though was it?, I think that was the match before it.

Frown Oh heck, I hope he doesn't have to play any more Challengers.

They give very few Entry points, and no Race points. All that effort for very little reward. Remember if he makes the 2nd round and loses in the second round of an ATP tournie (may even be the first round, I've forgotten Embarassed)he gets more points than a Challenger event, so why waste time at Challengers in the middle of nowhere that lack any atmosphere?

It would be such a step backward.

Stay with the main ATP events. That's the only way he's going to make top twenty by the end of the year.

So, a big NO NO to Challengers from this tennis fan.

Yes I see your point but the more challengers he does the more match practice he brings into the big tournaments.

I see what you mean, Tally, but like Murray Mad says, it's good for practise...

If he wants practise, then he can get it any time. Not travelling to dumps in the middle of nowhere to play Challengers.

Besides, Petch will strike a happy balance.

We dont want him burnt out. You can play too much tennis you know. Frown
