    Whichever one out of Bastad or Stuttgart looks weaker, for me.
    5-0

    RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012

    Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.

    Mustard off to Ecuador. This time hopefully reversing the final result of Season 1.

    P.S. Good to see this still going...

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Yeah I don't think top 20 players can play Challengers IRL, unless it's the 2nd week of a slam or the 2nd week of a Masters.

    I'm not actually sure if that is a rule - I can't find it anywhere. Still, the only time I remember it happening was Wawrinka a couple of years back before Wimbledon where he played Lugano instead of a grass warm up or something.

    Wawrinka was ranked #24 at the time IIRC.

    2009 he was ranked 18, but he might have been lower on the entry list. I'm not sure whether there is a rule so much as a recognition that it isn't worth it.

    Please someone correct me if I'm wrong... (but I think I'm not )

    I agree with you Tomas shouldn't even bother as he has stuff to defend at Wimbledon, full focus on grass and not on beer in Prostejov.
    That's just someone posting without significant knowledge though.

    Finished the year as #21. Then again, Mustard I think was outside the top 20 before this season.

    Is Bastad suitable for me to take part in?

    Such an evocative name for a town, I can hardly refuse to go.

    Lol! Saw that Mustard had lost the final last year, and thought would be good to reverse the result.

    Mustard will change to the Sweedish Open.
