Bad news, challenger fans.  I just had a look at the forecast for the two tournament locales, and the news is fairly grim.  See for yourselves:

And…

I’ll try to find out what the contingency plans are for both events. Pretty sure they can move indoors in Sao Paulo, but as you read in Jon’s Noumea Preview, Caledonia is shrouded in more mystery than the island from LOST, and they once cancelled the dubs due to rain.  So… we’ll see about that.

In the meantime, there’s good ATP 250 qualifying action taking place.  I’ll be watching both the Raonic vs. Roger-Vasselin and Goffin vs. Soeda final qualifying rounds from Chennai, and I’ll have full reports from those matches after their completion.  In the meantime, pray to the tennis gods or the weather gods or the atheist gods… whichever gods you’re on best of terms with.  And maybe there’ll be Challenger Tennis this week.  But right now, the outlook is not so good.
