Yes this might be a blessing in disguise. What happens to the Chennai challenger though? Hope they keep it after the Pune open so that our players get 2 weeks in a row followed by Dubai and Davis Cup qualifiers which has now been shifted to first week of March

Pune Open will become a less important event if it is played AFTER ran than before BEFORE the Australian Open.

Looks like ITF tennis body learned a lesson?

ITF, WTA and ATP deliver optimised pro tennis structure

These changes make sense. It appears that the ITF events now have points but have fewer points than before where you could get 18 points for the 15K events.

I think the challenger event points are also too generous when compared to those of the ATP 250 events, so perhaps they should also rationalize between them. For example, making a ATP 250 QF only gets you 45 points where you typically have to beat a top 100 and top 50 player. Whereas making the final of the lowest level challenger gets you 48 points where you typically don't have to beat anyone in the top 100.
