Dent, Delic, Isner, Young Possibilities at Loaded Tallahassee Challenger


Posted on April 1, 2009

Competing against only one tour event, the Barcelona Open, during the week of April 20 on the ATP calendar, the Tallahassee Challenger in Tallahassee, Fla., has just announced one of its best fields in the tournament's 10-year history, this year comprised of all Top 200 players in main draw acceptance.

Among the main draw acceptances are Top 100-ranked American Robert Kendrick, who this week went at the No. 1 spot in the World TeamTennis draft, and Bobby Reynolds. Other name players are India's Prakash Amritraj and NCAA star Somdev Devvarman, German Benjamin Becker, Canadian Frank Dancevic, and Americans Amer Delic, John Isner, Scoville Jenkins, Kevin Kim, Jesse Levine, Vince Spadea, Ryan Sweeting, and Donald Young.

"This is an unprecedented cut off, Top 200 in the world. A dream come true entry list for sure," said Tournament Director Karen Vogter. "A pass for the entire week of our tournament is only $30 and you can see all Top 200 players."

Wildcards have yet to be announced, but lower-ranked alternate entries include comeback sensation Taylor Dent, and Top 300-ranked Americans Rajeev Ram, Todd Widom, Michael Yani, Ryler DeHeart, and Nicholas Monroe.
