RE: British Women - Top 25 etc table


I think there must be a glitch with this thread at the moment, since wolf's post suggests that the more recent posts haven't shown up for him either. I'm still only getting the last page if I add 1 to the page number in the URL or switch the order to reverse. Usually when this happens, it corrects itself a few posts later - maybe this will be the 'magic' one ...

My favourite Twitter reply of the week so far:

Me:

"WTA CHs too for
Singles:
@ManishaFoster 689 +6
Doubles:
@JossRae91 162 +12
@harriet_dart 637 +30
@beth_askew 881 +12
@izzywallace96 1026 +12"

Izzy:

"@GBtennis @ManishaFoster @JossRae91 @harriet_dart @beth_askew I swear I don't have a ranking but ok.."



It's not the obvious, i.e. I didn't pick the wrong Izzy's Twitter handle! My best guess is the "Doubles:" is a little hidden in that tweet and she thought I meant singles. Either that or if she really didn't think she had a doubles ranking, she might get a pleasant surprise

Top 20 Brits in terms of WTA singles points picked up in weeks 1-30 of 2014 only, with actual GB positions at the start of week 31 in brackets:

836 Heather Watson (1)
306 Johanna Konta (2)
293 Naomi Broady (3)
99 Tara Moore (6)
81 Katy Dunne (7)

63 Samantha Murray (5)
57 Emily Webley-Smith (8)
52 Katie Boulter (12)
48 Eleanor Dean (13)
39 Amanda Carreras (10)

29 Jade Windley (9)
20 Gabriella Taylor (16)
16 Anna Smith (11)
16 Manisha Foster (15)

14 Eden Silva (21)
11 Laura Robson (4)

Edit: see Indiana's post below - after being used to 1-4-6 for 50K and similar qualies for so long, I still haven't got used to it now being 1-3-5!

Emily earned just 3 points for last week's 50K FQR / LL performance rather than the 4 she would have earned last year.

So she has 97 ranking points and 57 YTD points after week 30.

Pity about the general drop off after the top 3, though some good stuff from them. With the way Tara and Sam have been going recently ( not sure when Laura is likely to be back ? ) Katy is clearly threatening to be GB year end no 4.

Today's rankings are the 40th WTA official year-end rankings.

On the positive side, Heather has held onto WR 50, so this is the 4th year in a row that the GB no. 1 has been a top 50 player at the official year-end:

2011 Elena Baltacha 50
2012 Heather Watson 49
2013 Laura Robson 46
2014 Heather Watson 50

The last time that happened was 1984-7 - in fact, until then, the GB no. 1 has always been a top 50 player and after that, there were 23 year-ends when the GB no. 1 wasn't a top 50 player until Bally managed it in 2011.

On the negative side, this is only the second time ever that there have been less than 10 GB women in the WTA official year-end top 500 - they other time was 2004, when there were 9 Brits in the top 500, as there are now.

We must surely expect rather more thsn 9 in the top 500 come season end 2015 with the younsters who are advancing, hopefully injury returners and Cav should very soon be back in.

All going well ( which is maybe a bit much to expect ), Amanda, Harriet, Eleanor, Jade, Naomi C and of course Laura could be in again or for the first time. Clearly these six all have the ability and have all been top 500 and / or are are currently in the top 550.

Such as Manisha, Izzy, Eden and Gabby are to me outsiders and Katie Swan a wildcard.

Of the current 9 in the top 500, I'd suggest 6 should certainly still be there ( Heather, Jo, Naomi B, Katy, Tara and Katie ), Emily too if the will remains, and Samantha if she can come back fit reasonably soon. Anna would be the one likely to exit the top 500 simply by not playing singles.

Reading about Freya up agsinst Manisha in Bath reminds ne of her ( she often seems forgotten somehow ) as another outsider.

And if we discount Anna that then has me mentioning 20 names. 20 in the top 500 eh. Maybe not :)

Ah, but if we discount Anna Smith, there is always Anna Brogan as another outsider. So that's 20 and a spare ( sorry Anna B :) ).

OK, think I'll leave it for now...

I think Freya is a certainty for the top 500 and a lot higher. But, as she's only 16, I'm assuming she'll still be in school next year, and playing a lot of junior tournaments, so I'm not sure if it'll be next year. Probably later.

(Jasmine is also one, for instance, who prioritised juniors over adults this year. Scheduling and schooling is a vital part at that age and makes it difficult to predict what their end of year rankings will be - even MORE difficult might be the better phrase).

Gabby Taylor is another who is maybe too young to be a real bet for next year (not saying that she won't or that she couldn't but simply if she doesn't play enough adult tournaments it's very difficult to even have a shot).

Based on not a lot, I get the impression that Sam is working hard at rehabilitation and expect her to come back but I'm not so sure about Jade - I rather wonder if she is moving on to other things . . .  (I may be completely wrong here though . .. )

Think Jasmine A decided against A-levels and has finished school after taking her GCSEs, so we may see her in more tournaments this year.  Think Freya is still studying, not sure about Gabby and Anna as they are abroad but certainly imagine Anna will be trying to fit in some sort of studies.

I'm pretty sure that the place where Gabby is has academics as part of the programme (compulsory, I think).

Loving the latest top 25 table with all the blue and ranking rises and 11 ( ! ) of the 25 at CHs today.

I realise most are small movement kind of quirks in the stats, but they all had to already be at or around their CHs the previous week.

With wins in Bath last week, Katie and Harriet ( into the top 500 for her ) and possibly Katy will earn further CHs next Monday.

And Anna Brogan, GB no 25, is now WR 991, so they are all in the top 1000 !

When I first started following this site, the bottom of the 25 table had several girls at just 3 points and a few more a point or 2 above, all well outside the 1000 mark.  How often have all 25 of the girls been in 3 digits in recent times?

Almost always before mid-2011, hardly ever since. http://www.britishtennis.net/stats/t25rankc.htm?n=1 only shows where the 25th Brit was ranked at the end of each quarter, but should give you quite a good idea.
