ATP Challenger Tour in 2022
The ATP Challenger is an intermediate stage of professional men's tennis between the ATP Tour (all bets on the ATP) and the ITF tournaments.
For tennis players, winning the ATP Challenger Tour, it earns them enough ranking points to qualify for the main draw or ATP Tour tournament draw.
For those who aspire to compete on the biggest stages of the ATP Tour and the Grand Slams (all Grand Slam bets), it all starts here: the ATP Challenger Tour — the character-building path for any player seeking a career in professional tennis.
The Challenger tournaments allow bettors to watch world-class tennis in a more intimate setting and provide emerging stars with the opportunity to develop their talents. Hence, they ensure the continued success and growth of professional tennis.
The Challenger Tour is a crucial step in a player's growth. It offers the opportunity to mature — physically, mentally and tactically.
Betting on the Challengers
The ATP Challenger Tour consists of more than 150 tournaments throughout a season that stretches from January to November.
With over 7,000 matches per season at your fingertips, now is the time to bet on which of tomorrow's stars will take flight.
Unless invited, no one ranked between No. 11 and No. 50 on the ATP Tour can play in a Challenger event. The Challenger circuit is the main venue for players ranked in the top 200 in the world. Challenger prize money ranges from €46,000 to €162,000 for the winner (all tennis bets).
Recommended bets on the ATP Challenger
A total of 12 different Americans have won singles trophies in 2021, the most of any country on the ATP Challenger Tour. Notably, 21-year-old American Jenson Brooksby was the revelation of the season with an 88.5% win rate.
The Argentine contingent tied the record for most titles in a season, with America in 2007 and 2016 and France in 2005, the other members of the "20 Title Club". Therefore, we recommend betting on an American or Argentine winner.
Benjamin Bonzi has been a dominant force on the ATP Challenger Tour in 2021. The Frenchman amassed 50 Tour-leading wins this year, joining the exclusive "50 Wins Club" in a single season. In the history of the Challenger Tour, only seven other players have won that many matches in one campaign.
