Challenger Bratislava Live
The Peugeot Slovak Open will be played in Bratislava, Slovakia this week as a part of the Challenger Tour. Let us take a look at some of the names, who are set to grace the event and entertain the fans.
Veteran German Florian Mayer has been given the top seed here, who is coming in fresh from his quarterfinal defeat in the Eckental Challenger to world no. 244 Franko Skugor. Prior to that, he lost back to back in the second round of ATP Basel and Antwerp. Illya Marchenko of Ukraine is the second seed here, who spent his last month on the ATP circuit, trying to get some traction. However, his efforts failed as he lost early in the first round of the three events he played in, with last one being the Paris Masters. 21 year old Czech Adam Pavlasek is the third seed here, who has been trying hard to progress on the ATP tour. His last attempt came in Paris, where he lost in the qualifiers. Lastly, there's Jan Lennard Struff, who is unarguably in the best form here.
He too last played in Paris, where he lost in the fourth round, after reaching there all the way from the qualifiers. While it is hard to predict a victor here, it wouldn't be a stretch to imagine Struff carrying his great form here.

With its €85,000 +H total prize money, the week's most lucrative challenger is the Peugeot Slovak Open. An indoor hard court tournament annually held in Bratislava, the Slovak Open will celebrate its 16th edition this year.
The reigning champion is Peter Gojowczyk who will not be in attendance this year. In his absence, several former champions will try their luck, most notably two-time champion Lukas Lacko and 2012 victor Lukas Rosol who will come with the highest (by far) ranking. The Czech is currently the 56th player in the world. The other seven seeds in order will be: Illya Marchenko, Jan-Lennard Struff, Lukas Lacko, Farrukh Dustov (last year's finalist), Norbert Gombos, Elias Ymer and Edouard Roger-Vasselin. Each and any of these players could make the final and possibly even win, but the biggest favorite is clearly Rosol, who will be the only ATP titlist in the main draw (he has two career titles).
He has the experience and his game is actually perfect for indoors, which cannot be understated. If not him, then the already two-time Slovak Open champion Lacko could end up winning the tournament.
