Challenger Santiago Live
The lovely city of Santiago, Chile, will be hosting the Movistar Open on the Challenger circuit this week. Let us take a look at some of the players participating in the tournament.
Horacio Zeballos of Argentina has been awarded the top seed. His record so far is 7-13, with his last tournament being the Moselle Open, where he lost in the first round. Even though he lacks the experience on the ATP tour, he certainly is dangerous on the Challenger circuit, with two titles and a runner-up feat already under to his name. Young Brazilian Thiago Monteiro is the second seed, who was the runner-up in Santos Challenger a few weeks back. He last played in Campinas, where he reached the quarter-final. Coincidentally, Monteiro's opponent from the Santos Challenger - Renzo Olivo, is the third seed here. However, the Argentinean has failed to repeat his feat over the next couple of events in Campinas and Medellin. Lastly, Rogerio Dutra Silva is undoubtedly the most in-form player among the lot.
He reached the semifinals in Campinas and Medellin, which was preceded by runner-up feat in the Barranquilla Challenger. This veteran Brazilian is certainly a threat for the rest of the players, and it will be interesting to see if he can go the distance here.

The 2016 Cachantun Cup will be the 9th edition in tournament history. The event is played on red outdoor clay, bringing in some quality dirt maestros each and every year.
This year's competitors will battle for a $40.000 total prize money, and the reigning champion will return to try to defend his title. In fact, the Argentine Facundo Bagnis will be the top seed when the tournament starts on Monday. The main draw will naturally be dominated by Latino and South American players, including some high quality Challenger level competitors. Second seed Roberto Carballes Baena or third seed Rogerio Dutra Silva will be two of these players. In addition to them, there will even be a two-time ATP titlist in the draw, 33-year-old Carlos Berlocq who is also one of the most successful Challenger players of all time after winning as many as 15 titles, dating back to 2005. It is important to note, however, that the Argentine hasn't won a title at this (or higher) level since 2014.
He will not be the favorite this time either with this unofficial appellation going to the reigning champion. If not Bagnis or the Spanish Carballes Baena, the Brazilian Dutra Silva could certainly go all the way.

The Santiago Challenger is one of the latest clay court Challengers of the season. A South American tourney, the event usually manages to lure in the best local talent.
The total prize money while not particularly alluring at its mere $50,000 (that's usually the lowest amount in Challenger tournaments), it is enough to motivate the best South American clay courters who do not want to or cannot come over to Europe, or even compete in a North American hard court Challenger. Diego Schwartzman is an excellent example for this. The talented Argentinian youngster (still only 23 years of age) will play his third South American clay Challenger in a short time span. He wasn't as successful this fall as he was during last year when he won three titles and made one final between September and October, but he can improve that in Santiago de Chile.
He will no doubt be the biggest favorite, but there will be other good clay courters in the main draw including second seed Alejandro Gonzalez, fourth seed Joao Souza, fifth seed Carlos Berlocq, sixth seed Facundo Bagnis or eighth seed Rogerio Dutra Silva. Each and any of these players could go all the way during the week.

The 2015 Challenger ATP Cachantun Cup will be the eighth edition of the clay court tournament that s held in Providencia, Chile. The reigning champion is the Dutch Thiemo De Bakker, who took home the vast majority of the $35,000 last year.
That prize money was slightly bumped for the 2015 edition of the tournament, now standing at $40,000. The winningest player in tournament history is the Argentine Maximo Gonzalez, who managed to emerge victorious in 2009 and 2011 as well. In addition to his success, we have to mention de Bakker’s name as well, who not only won the tournament last season, but also made the final the year before, only losing to Facundo Bagnis on the last day of the tournament. Being a clay court event that’s held rather close to Argentina, it is no surprise that the tournament has been dominated mostly by Argentine players.
Martin Vassallo Arguello won in 2007, the above mentioned Gonzalez in 2009 and 2011, and finally Bagnis in 2013. In addition to those results, Eduardo Schwank and Mariano Zabaleta made it to the finals in 2008 and 2009 respectively. The 2009 match between Gonzalez and Zabaleta remains the tournament’s only all-Argentine final.
