Challenger Santos Live
The ATP Challenger Tour has now shifted to the Americas, as the Brazilian city of Santos will be hosting the Challenger Tournament this week.
Facundo Bagnis has been given the top seed for the event. He is also the one of the two players from the top 100 to be playing here. Having won a few Challenger trophies earlier this year, he hasn't been able to repeat the same feats in the recent weeks. Thiago Monteiro is the second seeded player, who broke through into the top 100 only recently. However, he hasn't moved past the initial rounds since Swiss Open in July. Rogerio Dutra Silva has been given the third seed, who is coming in with quite a bit of momentum. He last played in Barranquilla Challenger where he was the runner-up. But given his inconsistency throughout the year, there is no telling how he may perform here. Lastly, Renzo Olivo has been seeded fourth, whose last major feat was the semifinal run in the ATP Hamburg.
Apart from the above players, Joao Souza and Nicolas Kicker will also be playing in the tournament. This tournament should be an interesting one to watch, given that all the players are in a similar spell of rocky form.
