2017 Female rankings predictions


During the quiet period, it may be time to look at how you expect the 2017 rankings to pan out.

Lots of things to think about

Which juniors are at college or about to go to college?

Who is going to call it a day?

Which of our large number of 250-450 players will break through the difficult ranking barrier and move up to the next tier of ITF or WTA event?

Who will transition from juniors to seniors successfully?

I have about half a dozen who could end the year inside the top 300. The ones I finally decided to leave out were Sam Murray who had a career high of 165  and has beaten two top 200 players this year, Amanda Carreras who is close to her career high 274 and Freya Christie who has huge potential and should be in the top 10 but who do I drop?

1. Johanna Konta 4

2. Tara Moore 56

3. Naomi Broady 91

4. Laura Robson 92

5. Katie Boulter 105

6. Heather Watson 122

7. Katie Swan 197

8. Harriet Dart 216

9. Gabriella Taylor 222

10. Katie Dunne 232

I still think this is really difficult and there are so many external issues that will influence

Joko - outperformed last year, changing of the guard in women's tennis, so the opportunity is there - very much dependent on the new coaching set up
Hev - very good on her day, but those days are getting quite infrequent. Consistency, could see her fly up the rankings
Naomi - another that outperformed last year, but Fitzy is no longer coaching and the coaching issue could be the big factor between staying in the top 100 or dropping down to ITF
Tara - terrific talent, if the head is right chances to push on
Robbo -who knows - the talent is there, whether the attitude and consistency matches it is anyone's guess
Mandy - seems to have moved up a level - too good for 10k now and making waves at the next level up
Freya - terrific talent, but i'm slightly worried that she has a lack of variety to push on and is too reliant on her powerful backcourt game
Katy - struggling to get out of the 25k window, but a travelling coach and some decent results down under show signs of optimism
Harriet - another in that 25k window, who may struggle to push on in the short term
Gabi - young improving, but may well get stuck in the 25k window
Katie B - huge potential to improve - might be one to watch
Katie S - if she stays fit, she could fly up the rankings, but seems prone to injury
Lisa - good player, will climb, but not convinced quite ready to move out of the 25k window yet

I don't really see any others breaking through bar Eden Silva who may break into the top 500, but 25k's may be a step too far at the moment

Sam Murray may well pack it in, EWS will end up as a doubles specialist.
Maia is talented, but inconsistent and still playing around her studies, Emily App could do well, but i'm not sure what her plans are.

The rest of the girls will probably be playing on the 10k circuit. I can see Fran Jones, Olivia Nicholls and Alicia Barnett making moves up the ranking, but @600 may be the best they can achieve. The only other girl with the potential is injury prone Eleanor Dean.

Jo Konta - 17
Heather Watson - 48
Naomi Broady - 130
Tara Moore - 145
Laura Robson - 165
Katie Swan - 176
Katie Boulter - 240
Amanda Carreras - 244
Katy Dunne - 260
Freya Christie - 275
