RE: Week 32 - Challenger ($100,000) - Nordic Naturals Challenger, Aptos, CA (hard)


I am sure that somebody might correct me, but wouldn't Taylor Fritz be at the bottom of the SE list?

You mean:

"EXCEPTION: A player who has entered and been accepted into the qualifying draw of an ATP World Tour tournament and has been withdrawn because he is still competing, will be added to the last position on the special exempt list of an ATP Challenger Tour tournament scheduled for the next week, even though he would have been a direct acceptance, had he entered the Challenger"

I had interpreted that the same way as you until Vancouver tweeted about Fritz getting one, which made me think "last position on the special exempt list" meant "gets the last SE place". Hopefully it means what you (and I originally) thought though, in which case the SE order would be Liam - Fritz - Bublik, which (as I should have realised in the first place!) is still consistent with Vancouver tweeting that Fritz has got one of the SEs and would mean Liam got the other one and Bublik misses out instead

Bold Prediction: Broady will finish the year ranked higher than Norrie and about 130

Your 'bold prediction' from four days ago was:

"Bold Prediction: Liam will be ranked outside the top 200 by the end of season."

You can't boldly predict every eventuality, I'm afraid.

 

 


 I'm not sure you comprehend percentages and probability.  The wise prediction would be that Broady end of season rank  is around 200.  So therefore, saying he will be 150 or outside of top 250 is a bold prediction, but just opposite polls.

A prediction ( "bold" or otherwise ) is a prediction. That word implies that you are giving us what you think most likely to happen !

Adding "bold" just suggests it might seems a bit out on a limb, but that you might say have extra info about something or a real gut feeling. It doesn't change it from being your prediction. Separately predicting both of the above remains an absolute contradiction.

I'm IT useless but pretty good at percentages and probabilities

I'm just saying that predicting every side, of every possible upset, is not useful or gets any Brownie points.

It's called hedging these days, isn't it ?

Really happy for Liam. He's had a tough few years after that great run of results in the challengers. He hasn't moaned or made excuses, just got on with things and it now looks to be turning it around. Nice guy too.

Fingers crossed he can keep this form going through rest of the year and hopefully, direct entry into AU Qualies. Would be a cracking result and a great foundation to start 2018.

 What have the polls got to do with it?  confuse

Neal was already going to move ahead of big bro in the rankings this week. Going to be by quite a bit now. Well done and all the best for the final !

Few break chances for Liam but a great hold to go 3-3 from 0-40 down.

1st set in the bag 7-6(3). Looks like a tight match. Anybody watching to tell us how Liam is playing?
