Thanks Peter, it was wrong. Either a Hoose typo (goodness knows, he deserves to be forgiven a few given how fast he got the figures to me! smile.gif) or possibly he was using a slightly different source - I've run down the rest of the top 10 and they're all correct.



Hoose typo it was (probably the first number I put in!)

It turned out that only two of the women in the GB 16-25 range are playing this week (Tara Moore in Wimby Q and Amanda Carreras, who had a good win against the no. 3 seed in Portugal yesterday) and most of them haven't played for ages, as far as I can tell.

While that last bit is a bit worrying, it means I have already been able to extend the table to the full 25, much quicker than I expected to be able to. It's still in test, but I'm hopeful there's not too much wrong with it.

The RANKINGS link in the links at the top of each page on bt.net now points to a stats menu instead of going directly to the GB Top 25 men table. I'll change it into a nice stadard-looking BT.net page as soon as I get the chance.

It seems to be a common typo to make, because by some strange coincidence, there's an article in British Tennis about Anne reaching the top 100 which says "Keothavong began 2008 ranked No.122" !

Actually, it's on the ITF site as 122.  On WTA it's 132.

By the way, many thanks for doing the table.  As someone who mainly follows men's tennis, I'll find it really useful to have a single place to look to find out how all the women are doing each week.

I wonder if one site uses the rankings straight after the WTA Tour Champs and the other uses the true year-end rankings - except that if that was the case, I'd imagine the WTA site would have the ranking after the WTA Champs and the ITF site the true year-end one, not the other way round.

I don't know whether Anne's ranking changed in between the two (10 places at that level seems a big change unless she had points coming off in late Nov or Dec, but Peter tends to keep up to date so I'm sure his 132 was the true year-end ranking, and I also found a source that had it as 132 on 24 December 2007.

I always took the rankings from the WTA site on the date they were published. In my records I have Anne as 132 on 24/12/07 and also on 7/1/08. They used to quote year end rankings for the end of the tennis season (mid November) rather than the end of December. Part of the way through this year I suddenly discovered that the "end" of 2007 rankings had all changed. Anne Keothavong's ranking was 122 on 10/11/07.

Not many of our top 25 have been active in $10K and $25K events lately. One exception is Tara Wigan who has been collecting points from a succession of events in Portugal. In the next set of rankings she probably has a point to add from last week's $10K in Montemor-O-Novo.

1) So that was the reason for the ranking discrepancy, which coincidentally matched the typo LOL. I'm in favour of using the true year-end rankings, especially since many of our players continue playing lower-level events in between mid-November and the year-end, so I'm glad we're going to be consistent with each other.

2) WTA profile links (the ones on the players' names) and ITF profile links (the I links next to the players' names) now work - all the codes were right thanks to the Hoose, but I had forgotten to change the basic formats of those URLs from the men's ones to the women's ones.

3) Tara Wigan's point from Montemor-o-Novo last week was already on the table in the LW column, but her overall ranking points won't change because she seems to be defending a point from the same event last year. Turns out that her playing lots of tournaments in Portugal is explained by the fact that she lives in Sintra near Lisbon, which a Portuguese friend once took me to - it's the Portuguese equivalent of Windsor (i.e. royal connections) but far more beautiful. Lucky her!

Since the GB women ar nearly done this week, I've created next week's table, which I expect to be riddled with errors at the moment - especially the ranking points calculation, which covers both weeks of Wimby.

You can find it at http://www.britishtennis.net/gbtop25f/2008wk26f.htm for now, or by clicking the Following Week link nearthe top of the current week's table.

As has Julia Bone I think? Emily Webley-Smith broke her leg but is back playing NCL matches.

Broady, Curtis, Windley & Moore will be playing Roehampton/Wimbledon juniors.

Thank you both, I've added all that ot the table. I guess it's pretty safe to assume that if a player hasn't played for well over 6 months, it means they've retired unless we happen to know another reason.

I'd forgotten that Roehampton Juniors was on the week before Wimbledon juniors, so wolf's info helps eaxplain why so few are in ITFs this week.

Shouldn't we move this thread to the Rankings section?
