Hmm... note the French presence amongst the seedings. In a way, you could say this is no different to the Americans crowding around their home event in Houston. As for some of the other players - well, Enqvist is really getting desperate.

Challengers are a bit different than ATP tourneys; they are often stuffed with home players no matter where the country.

Still, I can't believe some of the names in that draw! :eek:

most European players prefer to stay in Europe to prepare for RG. most Americans (and players from relatively nearby countries) prefer to play closer to home before making the trek to red clay. duh :rolleyes:

Well thank you very much, captain obvious. What does that have to do with this thread?

Is "troll" your nickname for me, because you don't like my "attitude"? Apologies that we can't all reach the class of self righteous bitch that you have.. I'll try harder.

You've explained something obvious in a condescending tone, and something that I myself have pointed out in various threads.

You've also taken the time to do it in a thread that was merely presenting an observation over what a fine field this is for a challenger, using Houston as an example. I could well have used Copenhagen, but Houston was a much more recent memory.

I would use "double duh" for having to explain this to you, but I'm not twelve years old.

hey troll:
at the end of your initial post you asked "wtf?" which suggested a query over why Aix-en-Provence had attracted a better field than Houston.

i chose to answer the question.

to me the answer seemed perilously obvious.
