Wonderful news that India will be hosting two Challengers in November. Really well timed, just when we have a number of Indian players -- Yuki, RamK, Prajnesh, Sumit, and hopefully a returning-from-injury Saketh -- perfectly poised to capitalise fully on the points offered.

Strange that there are 5 CHs in week 36 (second week of US Open) and none of our players have entered in any of them.

I think Yuki/RamK would prefer to be in the North American region in this period post US open and before davis cup. Unfortunately, none of these 5 challengers are in North America.

I see Prajnesh in the entry list of a challenger in Quito, Equador in that week and in the Bogota challenger the week before. Vishnu,Sasi etc, are in the alternates of China challenger.

Not sure why Sumit is not in any of the challengers. His scheduling has been strange of late.

All those tournaments are scattered around the world and the nearest one being in Colombia and it would be unpractical to fly down to S America for just one tournament and than immediately rush back again to New York where Mahesh has held the camp.
Yes if there was no camp than the players had flexibility to play in Canada , S America.

Post DC there are string of Challengers in USA , and not sure whether both of our guys would stick around in USA or will travel to Europe for Challengers starting with Izmir or the ATP's and for the time being Ram has entered the ATP 250 in Metz France but is at least 10-15 spots away from the qualies list , and a week after Metz another ATP 250 in Shenzen China where both Ram and Yuki have entered and if they would be playing they would need to go through to the qualies

Indeed there are 2 atp 250 in china in the same week and yuki and ramk have entered both on alternates and so did the players above them.....
They are almost at same spots on the both lists signifying lot of common player and ultimately every player will have to decide to go this way(chengdu) or the other (shenzhen) surely there will be flurry of withdrawals on both lists but yess Bam n Ram would still need to play the qualies :-)
And i really hope they do play it
