Top 500


I've been busy lately and lost track a bit ... but am I counting 23 in the Top 500 at the moment ?

 That's what I'm seeing, Bob. (I had the ATP site open and set to show GBR players anyway because I was checking Charlie Robertson's ranking for his entry in PoM.)

Yes, at 19/02 :

#21, ATP 468, Anton M  90 points
#22, ATP 476, Alastair G  87 points
#23, ATP 487, Hamish S  84 points

#24, ATP 514, Jacob F  76 points
#25, ATP 574, Harry W  62 points

Ali G has 16 points to drop this week so will fall out of the top 500 on 26/02, on 71 points.

I cant recall where we kept a note of the battle for 10 in top 250 or 20 in the top 500, did it ever have a home, as such? Anyway, just realised that Arthur Fery as the 10th man is at 262 this week, and Jake Fearnley is 23rd man is at 502. Both therefore quite close to the respective barriers and, in the case of Arthur, to moving is to 10 in the top 250. Anyone know if Arthur or Jake will have a chance to gain ranking points in the near future, post their college duties?

 Jon - it is in this thread.

The top 500 is done and dusted, top 250 is still open.

Arthur is not at college and was injured in Thailand and is yet to return.

Jake is in his final year and unless he does a masters should be full time from the summer

Sorry I realise the top 500 is done and dusted. and top 250 is still open. Was just musing on status of those around the fringes. Forgot Arthur was injured and not in college still, thanks for clarifying .

Re the men's top 500, WR 500 points have been dropping recently and Jake, GB #23, is now indeed live ranked 502 with 76 points and nothing to defend until 22/07. Dan Cox is dropping points post Miami but will still be in the top 500 on 80 points as GB #22.

For our women, with Emilie Lindh switching to Norway we will be down to 16 in the top 500, indeed 16 in the top 600, and Naiktha is in danger of dropping out of the top 500 post Miami. Our real youngsters have a bit to do yet but surely there will be top 500 additions coming from them before too long.

Further up wirh the men, it is good to see Arthur Fery back in action as the 4th seed in this week's France M25 and if he reaches the final that might be enough to get us to that elusive 10 in the top 250 ( the title would certainly do it ). He has a fair bit further time to get there too with nothing to defend until 10/06.

Dan Cox has slipped out of the top 500, now WR 501 on 80 points, taking us back down to 21 in the top 500. It looks like he will sneak back in again in the 15/04 rankings but he does have 17 points to drop on 06/05, and no sign of him playing just now, so he may soon more clearly drop out.

Re the top 250, Arthur Fery is through to R2 in the Busan Challenger and is now live ranked 255 on 224 points. It looks pretty certain that a R2 win would see him into the top 250, giving us the Jaggy 10 in the top 250 ( certainly would be better late than never ). He is though likely to have to face the #1 seed in that R2.

And finally it appears we really will have 10 in the top 250 on Monday!

Live rankings has Arthur Fery as live ranked 249 on 236 points with only one player left that can overtake him - Gonzalo Bueno (PER) if he wins the ATP Challenger 50 Porto Alegre title.

Havent followed the rankings much recently but just noticed Arthur is live 251 as of writing , and presumably there is no chance of him being top 250 by the next rankings release. Did we ever make the 10 in top 250 or will we just be missing it again?

Also - the current live rankings give us just 20 in the top 500. We look like weve slowly lost players and George Loffhagen is the next one departing the top 500. Hamish Stewart is 20th spot and his ranking is 492 live , so that 20 in the top 500 mark could also be in jeopardy.

Granted , Ive not checked the detail so tell me Ive Im being unnecessarily doom laden!

 And so it came to.pass. Arthur is currently officially WR 249.
