Important Note for Challengers in 2012

Several changes are happening to challengers next year:

1 - The ranking eligibility has is now for any players ranked outside the top 15

2 - All challengers this year are "Play-Ins". In this situation, if you win a challenger you receive a Play-In to the main draw WITH a BYE to a Premier 600 event or HIGHER.

Please check the Schedule Thread if you would like to see which challengers give away Play-Ins to which events

Re: Important Note for Challengers in 2012

I just wanted to ask you to do exactly that. I think a junior GS title should be worth a MM MDWC as well...

Re: Important Note for Challengers in 2012

Sorry!

Can you remember, when doing the entry lists, to reserve places in each of those draws?

I will forget!

Re: Important Note for Challengers in 2012

I think there should be a challenger for players who didn't make their respective fed cup team during the week of January 30th. Grenoble, Sunderland, or Rancho Santa Fe are the challengers during that week.

Re: Important Note for Challengers in 2012

Most people who want to play Fed Cup usually get in.

But good idea - if there are enough people, we will have a challenger.
