Question about challengers.

In South Korea right now there is one of the Tretorn Serie tournaments going on. Ivo Minar is going to play HT Lee in the final. The winner gets 90 ranking points which would be a huge boost for both players especially Lee. My question is, do the members of TTW think that this is an excessive amount of points for a challenger tourney?

If Ivo Minar wins he will get 90 points, jump 20+ spots in the rankings, and he will have not beaten a player in the top 150 to do it. On the other hand Feliciano Lopez made the semis in Basel and had to beat two dangerous players to do it, yet he only gets a few more points then Minar for his troubles. It doesn't seem entirely balanced to me and I would love to here everyone's thoughts on the matter.

That is true. All of a sudden it seems like there is alot more money offered at these lower level ATP events. Like there is twice as much money for the winner in Basel and St. Pete as there was for Sydney earlier this year.
