No. Most of the people that get blown out in challenger qualifying are still top ranked junior or college players nationally. That being said, it shouldn't stop you from entering if you can get in directly/they have empty spots in the draw. I played a men's 75K qualifying event four years ago and got double bageled (and I'm a strong club level player), but loved every minute of it.

I don't think so. Maybe an ITF one? Hopefully not. 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!

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

Well, Hyun Hui Hong, a player that plays 10ks won 3 games against a top 100 player, Voskoboeva, so I imagine, no.

Have you told this story before? Sounds really familiar --especially the part with the tournament director. I wish I would've entered some in high school, when I was sharper- too late now.

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

It's not easy no. I recently played against Kate Green ( who is 24 now ) who is coaching now. She was a good college player, toyed with turning pro and competed at junior Wimbledon. She didn't get anywhere in pros but certainly still cracks a good clean ball. So unless you draw a Dewonder Davis type player yu're gonna lose bad

I would honestly be happy with winning one game (let alone match) in some random 10k qualifying
