Re: Is it easy to win matches in challenger qualifying?

It was the Aptos (California) 75K in July 2008. I was doing media work for them and the tournament director and I signed into the doubles qualifying as a half-joke. It turned out only two other teams signed up, so we got directly in
. We're both rated 4.5 in the USTA (not sure what that translates to in GB), so good club players, byt we clearly didn't have a chance. They put our match on the stadium court though and we had about 80 or so people watching. Was a little bummed because had I arrived a day earlier, they also had 10 or so open spots for the singles qualifying.

Good on you. The pasty legs and non glamorous outfit made me think of Lapushenkova randomly!
