First tournaments of the new year getting underway interesting to see


how the new format in Challenger works. Expanded main draw (48) with some $$ for all players and points for all match winners. And I believe they provide hotel rooms (and food?) for all players. 16 seeded players get the bye. For them, basically the same as old format. But for the other 32 obviously makes that difference between being top 32 (main draw) and the high qualifier (must win 2 or 3 matches to get anything) much less. I like that flatter, fairer format for the players that travel to the tournament. But it will make for a smaller population of players overall. 4 player qualifier play-in for two main draw spots.

Oh, and JC is playing (8th seed). Here's to 2019! Go Hoos!
