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

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

Australian Open - Open GDF Suez - Paris

Roland Garros - Stanford

Wimbledon - Carlsbad/San Diego

;) Sorry!

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

I will forget!

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.

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

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