RE: British Men - Top 25 etc table


A suggestion - the ATP have sneakily altered the rankings pages. When you clicked on "Rankings" last week you got the entry rankings: this week it takes you straight to the "year to date" rankings. Have the wrong tables been used this week? I would check if I had time, but at the moment I haven't.

Steven's tables are correct, it's just the ATP site defaulting to the YTD rankings causing the confusion. I think Steven tweeted to that effect yesterday / Saturday, having noticed the ATP site changes just before posting the updated table.

Was great to see Dan Smethurst taking that title last week and Richard and Morgan reaching finals.

These 3 currently are 12th, 13th and 14th respectively in the GB top 25 ( the last 3 of our world top 500ers ).

Looking now at the top 25 table, one effect has been to markedly widen the already quite big gap between 14th and 15th place, with the predicted rankings for next Monday being  :

14.  Richard Bloomfield  WR 452 with 76 ranking points, 15. Sean Thornley WR 595 with 38 points ( half us many ),  16.  Oliver Golding  WR 617 with 35 points.

These above successes are very welcome.  What would be good to see now is some of our teens in the lower ranks of the top 25 table really start to get their year going and produce some of the stuff or better that they were showing around Autumn last year.

Can one or two of them be the ones to start producing results to begin to bridge that existing big gap to our top 500ers ?

Hi Steven/others

I've just tried clicking on Steven's link to view the GB Men's top 25 table and couldn't access it.
This is the message that came up.

Hmmm, this is a weird one - there is a monthly bandwidth limit on the freewebs account (between one 16th of the month to the next if I remember right) and we first got this problem once BOTB started getting big and the tables were getting downloaded at a lot. I then paid to up the bandwidth limit which gave us 10x as much as before and we've never got anywhere close to going over the higher limit, even when we were getting nearly 500 people entering BOTB. I know we had the AO BOTB recently, but I still find it hard to believe we've gone over the limit with half of the bandwidth month remaining.

I'll see if I can sort it out, but first I have to work out what login it's looking for - it's asking me for an email address and password when we've always logged in with a username (i.e. britishtennis) and password in the past. I'm pretty sure the registered email address is still one of sheddie's, but can't remember what it might be.

All sorted. It turns out that if you first registered in the days when it was known as 'freewebs' rather than 'webs' as it is now, you can enter the username in the email address field. And it looks like the enhanced bandwidth subscription didn't automatically renew in September for some reason, which would make it unsurprising that we went over the limit after the first BOTB wholly inside a bandwidth period.

Thanks Steven; guessed there'd be a good explanation!

If you're wondering why the site is down today, Freewebs has suffered a DDoS (distributed denial of service) attack - see https://www.facebook.com/Webs - it doesn't affect the forum, which is hosted on Activeboard, but does affect all the stats and other britishtennis.net pages.

I meant to mention yesterday - there are now 70 Brits (*) with ATP singles rankings for the first time since early 2006 The number was down in the 50s for most of the intervening period after a rash or retirements in 2005/6 and has gone up by 11 this year, though 2 of those were ranked at the end of last year while playing for Australia so the true increase is 9. (Cam Norrie didn't get his 1st ranking point until after he switched, so it's fair enough to count him fully)

(*) players with (GBR) next to them anyway - still no clarity re Simon Ede's switch on ATP but not ITF

So many Brits breaking new ground today, and that's just in the top 600 ...

Evo breaks into the top 200 - up 54 to 194 (now up 103 this year)

Dave Rice breaks into the top 400 - up 21 to 380 (now up 228 this year)

Tom Farquharson breaks into the top 500 - up 32 to 476 (now up an astonishing 754 places this year!)

Richard Gabb breaks into the singles top 600 - up 15 to 586 (now up 154 places this year) - and the doubles top 400 - up 32 to 369

Neal Skupski breaks into the doubles top 200 - up 50 to 194 (unranked at the start of 2013, career high improved by 557 this year)

I was quite saddened to realise while doing next week's GB top 25 table that Bloomers will not be on it for the first time since I started (which was a couple of years before 2008, when I started saving the tables at the end of each week) and in fact for the first time since he entered the ATP singles rankings just under 12 years ago in September 2001.

It is worth noting though that back then, the kind of ranking he will have on Monday (i.e. just outside the top 700) would have been enough to make him GB no. 15 rather than GB no. 26 and the 25th best Brit was ranked outside the top 1100!

Kyle moves into the top 350 today, which probably also makes him the 2nd highest ranked player born in 1995 or later after Nick Kyrgios

Also, GB has 19 men in the ATP singles top 500 for the first time since late 2005, when the number peaked at 20.

In addition, I've just noticed that the 40 players with the most singles wins in all ATP-ranked events this year include 5 Brits:

Andy Murray - 37 wins from 44 matches
Dan Cox - 37 from 50
Dan Evans - 36 from 47
Ed Corrie - 36 from 50
Tom Farquharson - 35 from 53

I see that the so far ( understandably ) non appearing Oli, Liam and Luke and the ( rather less understandably ) disappearing Evo are all at CHs this Monday. This is clearly the way to go :)
