I see that Gabi will be level on points with Katie B for GB # 10/11 at the end of this week, 14/11. And, dropping 4 points the following week, needs a SF this week to stay level on points, another final to clearly go #10 on 21/11.

Seems as if Katie B may win any tiebreak.

Jo's currently WR 10 rather than WR 9, which I think makes absolutely zero difference to anyone, she having so outdone anyone's projections ( some rather more than others )

 I had her down for 25 - I think 16 is closest - not losing any sleep on that one.

Haha; fitting that I'm joined in the bottom four by Mervaton and Peter too...old stalwarts of the GB Tennis Girls forum. To misquote Spock: We always were, and always shall be, eternal optimists when it comes to GBTGs ;)

Mind you, in Jo's case my optimistic prediction of 16 proved to be not optimistic enough. Shame on me!!

Scanning through people's predictions Vohor, I think you were definitely the nearest for Jo.  Given that most of us looked on the bright side when making our forecasts, only a couple put Jo top 20 and the majority were in the high 30s - low 50s range which just shows how truly unexpected her rise has been.

As above, I don't expect a soul to believe me, but my (unpublished for superstitious reasons) prediction/premonition for Jo's ranking was 6 [SIX].

Permission granted to all to scream "LIAR!" in chorus...

40% out, no points for that  

OK, slightly beats my 320% out, and WR 6 would have indeed been possible if Jo had got into the tour finals.

And Gabi is in that other final so barring any very unexpected entries and points next week she will be #10.

Not quite as exciting a finish as for the men, but here are the final results for the women:

Coup Droit has actually extended his lead and finishes the year with a 5 point lead.

kaseldop takes second place and Long time reader is third. 

Congratulations to all those in the top 10 - scoring 50 points or more, the only scores in the last 3 years (men or women) to get 50+ points.

Crazy - I thought I'd done really badly but then realised my score would have been enough to win most years.

Thanks to Sim once again for running the competition and congrats to CD.

Yep thanks Sim, great fun, definitely increased my understanding and interest in the ladies game this year. Obviously destined to do much worse in 2017 armed with a modicum of knowledge!

No faltering at the end of a long season, but pulls further away. Well done, CD

And thanks again, Sim.
