Following on from the post I put here on 12th October, we are now two weeks nearer the possible 'break-through' into top-500 territory for a batch of our players....

The US college players, Henry Patten and Charles Broom, continue to be very impressive and are going through the rankings like a hot knife through butter. They were 1300 or so a few weeks ago and now about 800 and still climbing. Giles Hussey is in there too. (Charles and Henry have winner and runners-up points to go on as of Monday).

Billy is kicking on. Felix and Arthur are still playing well. Jack PJ has had a few excellent weeks. Don't know what Ali G's plans are. Or if Ryan Storrie is fully better. Or Dan Cox. Julian Cash will also get a big jump as of Monday.

Interesting times....

 Considering the other direction, of those already in the top500, i'm guessing Jan is most likely to drop out, and possibly soon??  James, perhaps the other likely candidate is safely ensconsed for now, i think having no further points dropping this year, but come January.....

Men's WR for w/c 01 nov.

So in men's singles, more shuffling at the top. Kyle's inactivity finally catches up with him.  That along with Liam achieving a new CH, means Liam and Kyle swap places. Meanwhile, although he drops only a couple of places, its enough to take Jay out of the Top200.  With the tussle with Anton seemingly won, Aidan looks to have found his next nip and tuck situation with Paul.  Further down its a week for consolidating earlier gains, in preparation for (hopefully), as CD's mentioned another collective assault to the achieve the Bob threshold.  

In doubles, it's as you were at the top, until you get to Brydan, who drops down almost 100 places, taking him out of the Top500. Further down, Julian and Billy trade places which means there is net no change for the number in the Top600.

Women's WR for w/c 01 Nov.

So the stand out move this week in singles belongs to Matilda who doesn't bother with a ranking in the 500s, jumping straight from 601 to 448, in the process accounting for the +1 both in the Top600 group and the Top500 group. smile  Further down, Alicia and Gabi swap places as do Freya and Naomi, but as Freya jumps more than Naomi drops, it adds another +1 to the Top750 group.

In doubles, after two weeks in fifth place Sam returns back to the 3rd best placed Brit. Alicia and Olivia continue their remarkable shadowing of one another, with both entering the Top200, collecting CHs while they are at it. Anna Popescu continues to yo-yo in and out of the Top600, with this week spending her time outside of it.

Men's WR for w/c 8 nov.

In singles, the gap between Cam and Dan continues to grow, while Kyle & Liam and Paul & Aidan swap places for the 2nd week in succession. Lower down, Billy Harris continues his climb up the rankings and JPJ finally makes it into the Top750.  

In doubles, its a pretty quiet week.  Things couldn't be closer between Dan, Jonny and Dom, while lower down Charles Broom continues to push on, entering the Top750 group for the first time, accounting for the +1.

Women's WR for w/c 08 nov.

Much like Kyle in the men's singles, Johanna's inactivity is starting to really bite, and she drops out of the Top100.  It is more positive further down as Matilda's march up the rankings continues for another week, while just in front of her, Beth closes in on a place inside the Top400. Freya's turn around in fortunes also keeps up for a 2nd week in a row.

In doubles its just as quiet as the mens. Harriet regains the rankings she lost at the end of Sep while Johanna loses most of the gains she made at the start of June, but none of the moves by any woman is sufficient to change the overall numbers in any of the groups.

Men's WR for w/c 15 Nov

In singles, Aidan and Paul swap places (again), while Jan's ranking drops (again) taking him outside of the Top500 and accounting for the -1 for that group.  Amongst the many others travelling in the opposite direction, Henry's jump and Ryan's jump take them into the Top750 group bringing that total to 26, a historical high (for this year at least). 

In doubles, Brydan's ranking continues to fall off a cliff, accouting for the -1 in the Top600 group as well as one of the guys dropping out of the Top750 group. Charles Broom also drops out of the Top750, but going in the opposite direction is Jack Draper, meaning overall the group changes by -1.

22.11.21

Just to note that we now have only 12 men in the top 500. It's a long way from Bob's 20........ :(
My cohort of those pushing entry have not made it yet but are amassing their forces: Ali G, Stuart and Billy are all in the 500-550 slot.
The new charge of US players (Charlie, Henry, Dan Little) are all not that far away (I know Ali is a US player too.....)
Our youngsters are also looking good (Jack, Felix, Arthur....)
The UK ones look less threatening, IMO (Mark, Luke, Toby.....)
But the return from injury/out ones (Dan Cox, Ryan S) are a decent outside shout ....

12 Cameron Norrie (CH)
25 Dan Evans
123 Kyle Edmund
128 Liam Broady
134 Andy Murray
231 Jay Clarke
259 Jack Draper (age 19)
292 Ryan Peniston (CH)
332 Aidan McHugh (age 21)
335 Paul Jubb (CH)
387 James Ward
427 Anton Matusevich (age 20)

 My worry is the return of GB ITF tournaments, leading to a lot of our players potentially competing for the same points for many weeks of the year. 15 weeks of ITFs and then 8/9 weeks of UK pro tour many players could almost decide not to fly anywhere.

Seems a bit unfair, though, Madaman, to lambast the LTA because we do for not having enough domestic events, and then laying into them for having too many and our players won't bother travelling

I think it's great to have the local events.

Youngsters can have a go. Players who are not really able to travel. Local coaches. It opens the scope to all the other players who are not in a position to go to Sharm for three weeks or whatever.

It also raised the profile of tennis in the area - kids often get involved, local businesses sometimes, schools.....

I just wish there were some 15ks...... 25ks attract too many foreign players and are too high a standard for the benefits I'm talking about above (for the players).

I wouldn't say I was lambasting the LTA merely pointing out a potential worry within the context of getting more players higher ranked. Definitely more opportunities the better. I'd rather us has have the 15 tournaments a year than not! Obviously it can work in the favour as you could end up with a player who, as you say wouldn't travel to Sharm, entering and doing well and that then giving them the confidence to play more on the ITF circuit. A bigger pool of players a better chance more in the top 500.

Regarding the balance of 15/25ks. I was thinking about this the other day. I was thinking if they did the same 25k every other weeks for 5 weeks 3 times during the year with a UK pro in between. That would be 9 then 6 ITF 15's? Although not sure if that is the right balance. Will be interesting to see the rest of the calendar.

Men's WR rankings for w/c 22 Nov.

So as we head towards the end of the year, things are turning quiet.  In singles, Alastair makes the most note worthy move, advancing further towards the Top500. At the moment 69 points would be enough to make it into the Top500 meaning Alastair is now only 8 points away, so almost in touching distance. Therefore don't despair too much Bob!smile  And although Stuart and Billy are treading water this week, they are only 9 and 10 points away themselves.   

In doubles, there is a +1 in the Top500 group thanks to Mark Whitehouse. Ben Jones is the other stand out move this week. Otherwise it is pretty much a case of "as you were".

Women's WR for w/c 22 Nov.

So after deciding to throw out a midweek rankings update last week, the WTA get back to normal this week.  And its even quieter here than the men.  So lets instead look back to last week's rankings, where in singles Katie Swan made a pleasing leap back up the rankings. Sadly Naiktha and EWS made similarly sized falls, with EWS also falling out of the Top600.

In doubles, Naiktha's recent tumble down the rankings, has thankfully taken a week off.  And rather cleverly over the last two weeks, Naomi's has managed (a very small) climb back up the rankings by adding absolutely 0 points. As a long term strategy however, i don't hold out much hope that this appraoch will get her back to GB#2. wink
