I am not sure if these entries are after entry deadline is over but there is some player list updated here -

Australian Open 2016 Asia Pacific Wildcard Playoff

There does not seem to be any Indian listed there. But, I do not really expect too many of them as Yuki does not require to play here and Saketh/RamK/Jeevan/ Divij etc. are playing in the champions tennis league.

Chandigarh will host a $50K+H ATP challenger in November as per this report -

CLTA stadium to host ATP Challenger tennis tournament in November


I am not sure of this is an additional challenger event in India or will replace one of the 2 challengers usually held in India in October - Indore and Pune in 2014 / Bangalore and Pune in 2015. I hope it is an additional one.

ATP challenger calender for October has come out and instead of usual 2 challengers we have only 1 Pune challenger in India. Last year there was a challenger in Bangalore and the year before in Indore tagged along with Pune challenger. Lets see if a challenger in Chandigarh which they talked about in November will materialise. I hope it does.

As of now we have only 1 ATP and 2 challenger events in the year and as of now only 6 futures on the calender. In contrast China has 4 ATP tour events and 10 challengers on the calender and plenty of 25K futures too. Can we not hold even half number of these level of tournaments when we have more tennis talent among men than China ?

In fact the tournaments at both challenger and futures level have dwindled down from last year and the stupid Asian tour tournaments are planned instead of futures. :-(

Their intent to do better in tennis is infinitely more than us.

The challenger and futures calendars for the first quarter of 2017 have come out.

The lone challenger which was in India (Delhi) in early part of last year in too is out of the calendar this time. So, we have gone from 2014 to 2017 from being hosting 3 challengers in February to none now. :damn:

Only good thing there are 6 weeks of futures lined up in February-March. There were only 3 of them this year and that too in April-May. So, at least our second string players will get to play at home in early part of the year when usually there are lower level of tournaments and tournament cut tends to be quite high everywhere.
