2018 male prediction rankings


Mods - please don't move this thread into the predictions section until entries have closed.

It's that time of the year when it goes a bit quiet and we have our annual predictions of who will be the GB top 10 and their rankings.

Will Andy stay fit this year?

Will Dan Evans and James Ward return?

Will Tom F play a whole season?

Will any of the young guns have a breakthrough season?

I'm trying to work out the logic for Dan Evans.
I think he returns March/April with no points. I suspect he will save his wildcards for the grass events, so will start in futures qualifying. It all depends on how well his grass season goes as to how quickly he will jump up the rankings. I cannot see Dan wanting to hang around in futures for any more than a few weeks...

It looks like 10 from 13 with J Ward, Glasspool and Farquharson capable of breaking into the top 10. I cannot see Willis or Golding playing regularly.

Best of the rest - Storrie, Gray, Harris and Bass whom I expect to jump up the rankings.

I'll take some time thinking about Evo???

Dan's final remaining ( Monte Carlo ) points come off on 23rd April, the day before he is free to compete again, so he effectively has about 7 months then to gather points from zero.

Though his first business before gathering any ranking points is of course to try to win a hastily arranged "The Best Non-Ranked Player in the World" tournament

I have never tried this before but will give it a go!

Andy Murray 12
Kyle Edmund 25
Aljaz Bedene 75
Cam Norrie 80
Liam Broady 150
Dan Evans 175
Jay Clarke 190
Alex Ward 235
Brydan Klein 350
Jonathan Gray 440

I think Ed and Lloyd will fall away, Marcus and Oli not play enough to make headway and Tom Farquharson I think will end the season around where he is now.

Good stuff

 I don't post much on here but the irony of being accused of trolling by yourself has made my day!

I've been here for donkeys years and have never done this before for the guys.... I will give it some thought. A difficult one, as some have great potential but have their own agenda. However, agenda's can also change...... Can Tom F become the next Dan Evans? Not the Dan Evans who implodes all the time. Or is Dan Evans going to be the new Dan Evans? Who rises from wherever to replicate the amazing talent he can be?

OK here goes, though I may come back to this before the new year, depending on what might appear on the grapevine, particularly re Andy ... ( edit: I have just left Andy as WR 1 - now that's what you call a bold prediction! )

1. Murray 1
2. Edmund 42
3. Norrie 82
4  Clarke 132
5. Evans 160
6. Broady 196
7. A Ward 204
8. Klein 292
9. Corrie 388

10. J Gray 420


I wouldn't discount James Ward. I just have no idea basically ( well less idea than normal ) which doesn't exactly help for predictions so I have left him out but it would be great to see him back well inside that top 10.

Edit: So out goes Aljaz and in for me comes Jonny Gray.
