Race to MEF Challenger is a new male tournament circuit powered by MEF tennis events and approved by the Italian Tennis Federation. These tournaments give the chance to italian and foreign players (I and II categories) to win a Wild Card for the MD of ATP Challenger 80 managed by MEF.
A NEW TOURNAMENT CIRCUIT
The goal is to give a new chance to professional tennis players and young talents to reach an ATP Challenger Main Draw. The ATP reform currently doesn’t allow all players to have access to the ATP ranking.
From a minimum of four to eight tournaments, each of them is giving access to an ATP Challenger MD managed by MEF tennis events. Each tournament takes place the month before each ATP tournament week, in locations set nearby the challengers’ sites.
READY TO FIGHT?
Wild Cards will be assigned to the winners of each tournament for the ATP Challenger, and will be active immediately after the tournament date. The WC gives the access to single main draw of the following ATP Challenger 80.
