Having ATP World Tour Finals withdrawal symptoms? Fear not! The ATP Challenger Tour Finals are live from Sao Paulo from 25 – 29 November 2015, and available to watch live online!
Beginning its fifth year of competition, the ATP Challenger Tour Finals takes on the format of the fully-fledged Barclays ATP World Tour Finals – the year-ending championships featuring the eight best players of the ATP season. With the Challenger circuit – a tier below the full ATP tour - a breeding ground for rising stars and battling late-bloomers alike, their own version of the year's final showdown could highlight some talents for the future.
The seven best players of the Challenger year are accompanied by one wild-card – from the host country, Brazil - to make the eight-man field for the Finals. These eight players are then divided into two groups, where they will play one match against each of the other three men in their section. At the end of this round-robin stage, the two players with the most wins (judged first by match wins, then sets won, then games won, etc) progress to the semi-finals, and from there the tournament continues as any regular one would.
Except this is not any regular tournament. For the eight competitors, this tournament could be their career breakthrough. A notable trophy, 125 ranking points and $91,200 in prize money are on the line, and the fight demands quality tennis. Last year's winner, Diego Schwartzman of Argentina, has gone on to be a recognised presence on the ATP tour, pushing Roger Federer to his limits and claiming a career-high ranking of world no. 57.
This year's field is comprised of Italy's Paolo Lorenzi, 2012 champion Guido Pella, 33-year-old Daniel Munoz-de la Nava, Spaniard Inigo Cervantes, world no. 89 Marco Cecchinato, Moldovan Radu Albot, and Farrukh Dustov, who has won two titles this year. The Brazilian wild-card is Guilherme Clezar, who made it all the way to the final as a special entry last season.
Ever since its first outing in 2011, the ATP Challenger Tour Finals has been hosted by Sao Paulo, but has been subject to surface change. The 2011 and 2012 tournaments were contested on indoor hard-courts, with 2013 moving to outdoor clay, and 2014 moving to the current environment of indoor clay-courts.
