Top 500


End of Sep graphs for men's singles.  Biggest ranking gains is dominated by those players towards the bottom of the WRs.  Blu's gain is based on a very slight earning of points. Although in the cases of Alastair and Felix, their gains are enough to earn them a Top750 ranking for the first time. Paul just misses out as one of the top rank gainers for Sep with his jump of 102 places, but he does make it to 3rd place in terms of points gained.  Not unexpectedly, it's the top ranked players who lead the top points gains, with Liam just sneaking into 1st place as a result of his first challenger title.

And finally, the Sep graphs for men's doubles.  In terms of ranking gains, Ryan takes a clear first place, with Blu 2nd.  Although only placing fifth, Alastair continues to build on his impressive climb up the rankings since the start of July.  In doubles points, Joe's heroics at the US Open means he is out in front of everyone else.  Rather appropriately, Jamie is runner up smile

Men's WR for the w/c 04 Oct. 

So in singles, it's "as your were" at the top end of the rankings, although Liam has never been closer this year to passing Andy.  Brydan falls out of the Top500, and takes the total number down to 13. However going quicker in the opposite direction is Alastair, who leaps into the Top600.  In doubles, the most noticable event is Kyle's drop out of the Top500, although Billy and Julian continue to make some good gains further down.

Women's WR for w/c 04 Oct.

In singles, Beth climbs another 40 places, taking her into the Top500, and the total to 15.  Following her entry into the Top750 last week, Matilda's continues her near vertical rise smile up the ranking, climbing almost another 100 places.  Further up the gap between the Top 10 players and the rest stay stubbornly big at 150+ places. 

In doubles, Beth (again) accounts for the +1, this time in relation to the Top200 group, while Tara edges closers to Heather and the top placed position for a GB player.  Doubles too, has its "stubborn gap", only a bit further downbetween Emily and Fran.

Surprised Matilda hasn't picked up more media attention in the wake of Emma's success. A long way behind obviously but thought journalists might be after the next potential success story.

You don't get media attention playing ITF. Most media only cover the main ATP/WTA tours. If your not playing in them you don't exist. If you're a brit and playing junior Wimbledon you might get a mention if you win.

Edited for stupid typo

As it's a non-ranking reporting week, for a change, here's the 2021 single rankings in terms of the player's age.   So other than looking a bit like a 6 year's old drawing biggrin perhaps there is not too much more that you can draw from them.

With less women ranked, their graph is less chaotic looking. The youngsters progress (Emma and Matilda) certainly stand out, but Katie's climb back up and Beth's progress are also noticable.  But I think it would be fair to say that overall the trend so far this year would be downwards.     

In the men's, there is a bit of melee in the 23-25 age range smile, but again perhaps not unexpectedly, most of the youngsters are going in the right directly.  But overall there is perhaps a more evenly balance between those going up in the rankings and those heading downwards

For what it's worth, the dotted line in each graph is the current average ranking YTD.

So, we've got 13 men in the top 500.

It's a long way off Bob's 20. And hasn't looked like getting anywhere close for years now.

And of that 500, Jan Choinski is the most 'missing in action' - no idea what he's up to (does he have some nasty injury? Or has he quit?)

Kyle is obviously side-lined but (presumably) will be back fit and strong at some point.

James Ward is another question mark - but he was playing pretty well in summer, certainly top 500 level.

So it's only really Jan who I'd ringfence as maybe not a 'true' 500-er at the moment.


However, it does feel like there might finally be a bit of a sea change.

Alastair Gray must be pretty close to breaking into the top 500. And would seem our top hope (so great to see him suddenly soar through the ranks)

Stuart Parker is playing this week and not far off.

Billy Harris might be threatening too, with his title last week, and whatever that leads to.

Both Arthur Féry and Felix Gill are not that far off either (Arthur may be playing less, now he's back at college so probably only Felix at the moment, and that would take a big ask, but the top 500 is going to happen for both of them, it's just a question of when - the same probably is true for Jack PJ too).

Ryan Storrie has a title and runners-up place in the last couple of weeks - that's got to be a good sign for a run on the top 500.

I know less about the likes of Charles Broom and Henry Patten. But those names, along with Millen Hurrion, say, are all possible.

Of course, Dan Cox has suddenly popped up again and might also have plans....

And Luke Johnson, Mark Whitehouse etc are solid players who could possibly make an assault on the the top 500 - Luke has his Forbach runners-up place points to go on.

Anyway, one way or another, I think we're going to have some new name(s) soon, and a lot more that are tapping on the door.....

Well, Stuart Parker doesn't seem in great form. Felix also lost.

And Lord help us but it seems like Ryan Storrie might be injured again (although it might also be a little niggle)

And Millen also seems to be injured..... :(

So that's four who aren't fulfilling their role above this week of 'new top 500 contenders' :(

HOWEVER, Dan Cox has just beaten the top seed, Billy is doing OK and Ali G is into the QFs (not to forget a few more 'outside' hopes who are still hanging in there).....

Women's WR for the w/c 18 Oct.

So in singles, Jo and Heather swap places, by virtue of Jo not losing any points this week.  Fran and Katie continue to shadow one another, while Beth keeps on climbing, and this week passes both Katy and Eden in the process. Matilda's recent efforts takes her into the Top600 group for the first time, accounting for the +1 and Tara hits her highest ranking for ages, and ventures into the 'stubborn gap' wink

In doubles, Katie blasts into the Top500, meaning the doubles stubborn gap is no more (or is it just on the move....). Not content with passing 2 players in singles, Beth also passes Sam in the doubles. As does Eden, who in the process becomes GB#3. Finally after a month outside of the Top600, Anna makes a welcome return, taking the total number of players in Top600 group back up to 20.

Men's WR for w/c 18 Oct.

So in singles, there is no change in the number in each group, but as we know, this doesn't tell the whole story this week. smile  So after making history in Indian Wells, Cam passes Dan and not only becomes GB#1, but reaches the Top20 for the first time.  Congrats Cam!  It's not only Cam on the move as Liam passess Andy, as a result of Andy dropping a whole host of points. A bit further down, Alastair continues his march up the rankings, and is joined by Billy and Luke who also make strides this week. 

In doubles, the total number in the Top750 reaches 27, the highest it has been all year, as both Ben Jones and Jay soar into the group.  Charles Broom also makes a huge leap, but just falls short of joining them, with his new ranking of 755.  A shout out also to Julian Cash, who continues his excellent run of form. So a good week all round....even Kyle manages to stem his losses this week.biggrin

Matilda Mutavdzic's run in the Israel W25 ( SF so far ), building on top of her recent South Africa W25 QFs, will ensure that she will enter the top 500 on Monday week, a 16th British woman to be top 500 in singles as against 13 GB men.

So the end of October "graph-fest". 

Up first Women's singles. Matilda's hard work this month means she tops the table for ranking gains this month. Having only joined the rankings last month, Jasmine starts her career off in good fashion logging a 90 position gain in her first full month. In terms on actual points gained, Harriett just beats Matilda and Beth to come out on top.  

Added to rankings this month: Anna Brogan and Sonay Kartal

Dropping out of the rankings this month: None

In Women's doubles, Soumeya takes a clear 1st place this month in ranking gains although her 13 points isn't enough to get her into that graph's Top 5.  Its a different story for the next 4, who do the double, with Beth taking 1st place with a 100+ jump.

Added to the rankings this month: Alisha Reayer

Dropping out of the rankings this month: Sonay Kartal

So in October, there was only really 1 story in town in terms of men's singles with Cam coming out top by miles in terms of points gained.  In terms of ranking gains, it's a bit more even with Giles leading with a climb of over 400 places. Having gained 500+ places last month, Blu makes an appearance for the 2nd month in a row. 

Added to rankings this month: None

Dropping out on the rankings this month: Finn Murgett and Barnaby Smith
