Re: Officially the strongest challenger of 2012 is: 75k Nottingham (McHale top seed)

the draw will be made much weaker when the players still in singles/doubles/mixed at the french are forced to pull out. plus the injuries and usual tiredness from a long clay season.

anyway i'm going most of the week for it including qualies, so will do some reports in challenger tournament as usual.

I don't understand why anyone who is on the bubble for qualifying for the Olympics wouldn't enter here.
Where are Lepchenko and Wozniak for example?

This is the strongest. In Nassau all the high ranked players pulled out afterwards.

Grass goats here. Expect McHale to stay in Paris longer.
Also, I at their best Lucic and Tanasugarn are class ahead on grass(compared to the rest of field).
