Random Charts & Nonsense


I'll add to this on a random basis:

In 2017 GB Women:

112 - Active GB Women (played at least one pro match)
980 - Entries by GB Women in a tournament (1 player in 1 tournament Q or MD = 1 entry)
366 - Unique Events entered (>1 Entry still counts as one unique event)
54 - Different countries in which a GB woman played an event
79 - Different countries of opponents against which a GB woman played (excluding GBR, 80 if you include GBR)
1048 - different players to play against a GB woman in a match in 2017
- 973 - of which, were foreigners
- 75 - of which were GB vs GB opponents
1890 - Total matches played
916 - Total matches won
48.45% - GB overall win %
18 - GB women's singles titles

14.57 - age in years of youngest GB player to play a match: M J Changwezera, Dakar FQR, 11th Nov.
33.425 - age in years of oldest GB player to play a match: Emily Webley-Smith, Navi Mumbai FQR, 17th Dec.
14.108 - age in years of youngest GB opponent: Maria Verdu Gonzalez (ESP), Manacor (Mallorca) QR2, 5th Feb, versus Tiffany William (who won, 6-4 6-0)
41.929 - age in years of oldest GB opponent: Gabriela Aura Zarnoveanu (ROU), Colombo FQR, 16th Oct, versus Alice Gillan (who won, 6-2 6-0)
- I was very disappointed by this, because I had been storing up all year on the matches we had played against Lindsay Lee-Walters
- we went 0-2 against Ms. Lee-Walters, who was 39.532 and 40.225 when Katy Swan and Lauryn John Baptiste respectively lost to her.
- I was banking on that being the eldest, and the amazing record, but up popped a pesky Romanian. Grrr!

131 - matches against our most frequent opponent country (excluding all GB ties): USA
- we went 51-80 against the USA (38.93% )
-- the rest of the top 5 were
-- 123 matches: France - 57-66 (46.34%) - those 57 wins were the most wins we had against any other single nation
-- † 91 matches: Russian Federation - 48-43 (52.75%)
-- † 84 matches: Italy - 34-50 (40.48%)
-- † 77 matches: Germany - 29-48 (37.66%)

66 - most matches played by a GB woman: Naomi Broady
41 - most matches won by a GB woman: Maia Lumsden
80.00% - highest win %: Sabrina Federici (4-1)
- 68.18% - highest win % for players with >20 completed matches: Emily Arbuthnott (15-7)
-- the remainder of the >20 match top 3:
-- 67.80% Johanna Konta (40-18 *includes Fed Cup)
-- 66.67% Francesca Jones (24-12)

14 - most match wins against a a higher ranked player: Francesca Jones
6 - Most wins from a set down: Gabriella Taylor

35 - Number of GB players to lose every pro match they played in 2017 (31.25% of the active players!)

More later, in peripatetic fashion.

Top 5 GB Ranking upset wins (ranked players):
1: 789 places: 05/09/2017, Hammamet, R32, Francesca Jones 1092 defeated Shinikova [1] 303 7-5 7-5
2: 739 places: 23/03/2017, Sharm El Sheikh, R16, Jodie Burrage 1232 defeated Ainitdinova [6] 493 6-2 6-1
3: 718 places: 08/08/2017, Chiswick, R32, Olivia Nicholls 1145 defeated Caregaro 427 4-6 6-3 6-4
4: 654 places: 31/10/2017, Sunderland, R32, Tiffany William 1157 defeated Stefanini [3] 6-1 2-6 6-1
5: 643 places: 24/03/2017, Sharm El Sheikh, QF, Jodie Burrage 1232 defeated Webley-Smith 589 6-1 7-5

Top 3 Highest players defeated by an unranked GBR player
1: WR364: 01/02/2017, Glasgow, R32, Eleanor Dean UNR defeated Honcova [2] 364 6-2 6-4
2: WR500: 14/02/2017, Wirral, R32, Eleanor Dean UNR defeated Cakarevic 500 6-2 6-3
3: WR502: 15/11/2017, Helsinki, R16, Summer Yardley UNR defeated Kruzhkova 502 6-3 7-6(5)

What a loss Eleanor's endless unfortunate situation is to us

Total matches in which an unranked Brit defeagted a ranked player: 35 (9 of which occured in all GB ties)


Leading number of different countries visited:
19 Naomi Broady
14 Tara Moore
14 Heather Watson
12 Johanna Konta
12 Emily Webley-Smith

After a bit of cursory nosing around, I think it somewhat probable that this is the first time ever that Emily has played a full season and would not have been the winner of this title.

52 Players only played in one country, and for 31 of those 52 players, that one country was GBR, next highest was 6 players who played their only event in the USA.

OK, I'm rather bamboozled by this††confuse

Shouldn't the % of times GB players fail to win from a set up be the % of times GB opponents win from a set down? So naturally GB players would either win or lose "both" these comparisons with the same %'s showing?

And are you saying that GB players only win 45.3% of their matches from a set up? Since this to me seems so unlikely and with my previous paragraph comments I assume I am somehow thoroughly misunderstanding what you are representing but I just remain rather lost.

It's rather late but I have tried ...

Yeah... it's not very clear is it
I've missed out crucial information in the description
When GB wins set 1, and the match goes to a third set, they lose the match in the decider 54.7% of the time!
When GB Opponent wins set 1, and it goes to a third set, GB lose the match in the decider 58.4% of the time.

Or, conversely, GB win in a deciding set having been a set down 41.6% of the times that they manage to force the decider.
When our opponents manage to force the decider from a set down against us, they go on to win the match 45.3% of the time.

Hopefully that additional context makes more sense, sorry

Thanks blob, all clear

Very interesting that GB players win 3 set matches more often having won the first set and then lost the second than vice versa. It's not the way round that I would have imagined just by momentum and / or a player sussing out an opponent's game. I would have intuitively expected better end results from these that had won the second set.

As to the generality of GB players losing significantly more 3 set matches than they win I'm far from totally sure what to make of it. An initial thought might be of too often buckling in the crunch decider set. But it could be that very often the opponent is basically the better player and that the British women often give a game fight against the odds until the basically superior player knuckles down to win it in set 3. I guess impossible to make more definite general conclusions without say breaking down further into stats when the GB player was the favourite ( or clearly for practical purposes just the better ranked ) against when the underdog.

Not trying to give you yet more to do !

So, the latest Windows/Office updates remove access to some of the functions used. notably MAXIFS, MINIFS, AVERAGEIFS.
You now have to pay extra to get them to work in the base version of Excel (the one I use). You have to move to the £79.99 yearly plan as opposed to my stand alone, purchased, one-time payment product.
Or, having purchased the full complete product on a one time, all-time, all in, basis, I now have to move to the additional recurring annual plan in order to preserve the functionallity I have already paid for.

So none of my workbooks will now calculate correctly.
The workarounds take weeks to implement given how frequently I use the inaccessible functions.
So, that's it.

No prior warning, no alternative given.
**** Microsoft.

Happy New Year.

You not heard about the car manufacturer that went round taking off all the wheels and steering wheels from fully paid for cars?

Me neither. Hardly the same thing though - this seems relatively much more serious†

Yes. Sorry. Another careless omission/typo error
1157 - 503 = 654 ranking places.
