Record Top 100?


With Jamie Delgado having already rejoined the top 100 and Jonny Marray joining him this week ( up from WR 101 to WR 96 ), but Sarah Borwell falling out ( WR 95 to WR 113 ) :

We now have 9 top 100ers

7 of these are men's doubles players incl Andy Murray who is clearly one of the 2 non men's doubles top 100ers.

Andy Murray     WR  4    ( next James Ward WR 214 )

Elena Baltacha  WR 89  ( top 200ers  Anne Keothavong WR 110 & Heather Watson WR 124 )

Jamie Murray    WR 40

Ken Skupski      WR 69

Colin Fleming    WR 74

Ross Hutchins   WR 80

Andy Murray     WR 83

Jamie Delgado  WR 85

Jonny Marray    WR 96

They are just putting the balloons in place at the LTA and Roger is working on a little speech, because :

We now have 11 top 100ers  ( no, c'mom I want more enthusiasm than that ! )

Anne Keothavong has returned to the singles top 100 at WR 95 and the doubles top 100 at a new CH of WR 94.

So she adds 2 to the previous 9.   OK, that makes two folk counting twice so there are only really 9 different folk that are top 100ers.

But anyway, be happy....smile

Funnily (or not so funnily) enough, our split of titles won this year is in much the same ratio:

Singles - 4 - 3 Futures & 1 women's 10K
Doubles - 19 - 1 ATP, 5 Challengers, 2 women's 25Ks, 9 Futures and 2 women's 10Ks

I don't know whether this shows how little most other countries care about doubles or how much the 'typical' British game is suited to doubles - probably a fair bit of both.

Ah, that was fun having 11 top 100ers for a couple of week, but the balloons have come down now.

The points from Anne's QF singles and doubles appearances at Fes last year have come off so she is back outside the top 100 for singles - WR 107 and doubles WR - 108

Back to 9  :   1 men's singles,  1 women's singles,  7 men's doubles.

With Heather entering top 100, we have 10 again (counting AM for both singles & doubles).

MS - Andy Murray
MD - Jamie Murray, Colin Flemming, Jamie Delgado, Ken Skupski, Andy Murray, Ross Hutchins & Jonny Marray
WS - Elena Baltacha & Heather Watson

If Anne can pick up a win at Wimbledon then she could re-enter in either singles or doubles.

Post Wimbledon, Anne has replaced Heather ( who exited in the rankings before Wimbledon, now WR 106 ) in the top 100, and Ken has fallen out of the top 100 doubles rankings ( now also WR 106 ), so back to 9 overall

MS - Andy Murray
MD - Jamie Murray, Colin Fleming, Ross Hutchins, Jamie Delgado, Jonny Marray, Andy Murray.
WS - Elena Baltacha & Anne Keothavong

Ken's comings and goings continue as he reenters the top 200 at WR 94 ( up 8 ).  Thornley and Rice are now our next two ranked men's doubles players, although still outside the top 200.

Top 100 players :

10   wef 12.09.11     1 MS,  7 MD,  2 WS,  0 WD      A Murray counting both MS & MD

Ken Skupski drops out of the doubles top 100 ( WR 109 from WR 84 ) as last year's Marseille ATP 250 title ( with Robin Haase ) drops out.  He is playing there this week ( one week later this year ) with Jamie Delgado.  A repeat title would get him back into that top 100.

 

10 wef 12.09.11 : 1 MS, 7 MD, 2 WS, 0 WD A Murray counting both MS & MD
