Strongest Nation?


I had more been thinking this week and next looked good ones for potential advancement for our women and getting more towards that recent 190.1 high again with just Heather defending points this week and Jo next week and plenty in action.

And already in plus territory this week with 6 of our top 10 still involved ( 4 yet to play and an all British clash meaning one advancenent anyway ) I certainly hope we can go a fair bit further forward yet. As you say so far +14 to 1944 on openerarankings. Not a hang on week anyway.

After these 2 weeks our top 10 women have absolutely nothing to defend in the week beginning 20/08 though there probably won't be much relative action either ( at least to count that week ) with US qualies on.

To make a big move in the womens would need #8-10 to get big rises - which can't happen. #1-7 are all under 200 (which is nice), but limits any upward movement.

In the mens only JC, LB and JW can score and LB is currently -42 places. Would be very nice if one or more was to go deep.

Last week a lot of countries gained places by losing less than those around them.

I'm hoping both mens and womens will be positive at the end of the week biggrin

In the long term yes re the #8 to #10 positions having potentially much more effect, indeed certainly much more effect with ours for the same points rises if we could get them moving forward, particularly our #9 and #10. In the short term we certainly can make big enough moves forward with the rest to get under a 190.0 average ( with this a likely positive month ), building further on the pretty big average move forward this year that has been built off our #4 to #8 ( or at least what was #4 to #8 for a long time before Katie B advanced further ).

For upward movement in the GB women's #9 and #10 positions it's going to be dependent on which players currently in the 11-15 positions come through. Maia has been poised there all year, and will move up to within 1 pt of Tara next week, but nevertheless has made limited progress this year and at Chiswick seemed to be carrying an injury. I hope this is a consolidation period though as she is still transitioning to 25ks, and will resume her upward progress subsequently. In the positions behind, Beth, Fran, Jodie, and even Lissey a bit further back, I hope will make further progress in the coming months too. Perhaps Sam too, though her year has been stop start. Eden and Freya are also there, but have shown limited improvement this year so far, though perhaps Freya has been more encouraging the last few weeks.

I must admit a tad more hanging on than I was anticipating with the women but I was expecting rather more ( and longer ) appearances on court in Landisville! Still openerarankings has our women's total live figure at 1950, up 8 overall with +13 coming from Jo and Katie B combined in Montreal. So they should end with a little forward movement.

In the womens BEL are approx. 1917 and SVK 2100 - so a slight closing on BEL and a bigger cushion with SVK.

The mens is gatting very close approx totals

             LW      NW
AUT    2535    2539
GBR    2674    2655
CZE    2696    2684
BEL    2733    2678
CRO   2770    2837

with GBR/BEL/CZE 2650-2700 -  so JWs run in China has been vital.

 some v weird stuff happening in the men's with 29 out of 43 countries dropping their average  and virtually all in lower half of the table. The losses add up to many more than the gains. Does that mean most of the corresponding gains are in fact hidden eg countries like USA having lots of success last week with their lower ranked players?

Maiinly because of countries dropping out  Also due to a lack of tournaments - lower ranked players with points coming off but nowhere to play. Also there are several countries with only 10-12 players - losing 1pt is a serious hit.

This is not a "weighted" table - Keep meaning to do one for Mens and Womens - will get to it eventually - but don't hold your breath.
