2018 female prediction rankings


I decided not to wait until the end of the week after all. Like most people, pretty optimistic predictions for our up and coming players.

1 Johanna Konta 7
2 Heather Watson 58
3 Naomi Broady 96
4 Katie Boulter 145
5 Laura Robson 180 (Hard one to predict - could be anywhere within 100 of that ! So fingers crossed for some improvement)
6 Katie Swan 205
7 Gabriella Taylor 230
8 Katy Dunne 235
9 Harriet Dart 240
10 Freya Christie 280

ranking 4 - 10 are really difficult to call. Hoping Sam Murray stays fit and gets a full season.

1. Konta 14
2 Watson 78
3 Broady 110
4 Boulter 185
5 Swan 195
6 Robson 220
7 Dunne 225
8 Taylor 245
9 Murray 287
10 Christie 325

I'm not convinced by Tara. Mandy will be out for a while and Jodie, Maia, Eden and Beth will all jump but not quite into the top 350 Tough call about Harriet - touch and go with Freya.

Really difficult....

1. Jo Konta 9
2. Heather Watson 58
3. Naomi Broady 97
4. Katie B 160
5. Laura Robson 199
6. Katie S 228
7. Gabi Taylor 231
8. Katy Dunne 237
9. Harriet Dart 261
10. Eden Silva 358

I would love to be wrong about Laura and for her to re-gain consistent form but, alas, it's rather difficult to keep the faith. Can't see Tara playing very well and I don't know anything about Carreras other than she has struggled with injury this year. To be honest, there's a fair few decent women that could be in the top 10, incl Maia/Freya/Jodie.

Despite the lesson of last year, we continue as a forum to be very bullish about the chances of our women in 2018.

Tending to significant optimism, yes, was always thus.

Though one can see many of the individual cases, eg. generally where our average prediction / range is well outstripping last year's range it is for players with quite significant green lines, for pretty upwardly mobile players of last year.

Will all these continue from their green ranges into the grey prediction ranges of this year ? - almost certainly not all, but it's difficult to isolate any and say any particular range looks clearly far too much. Who's 'brave' enough to say any particular of these green lines, for youngish players and a recovering player in Sam Murray, is not going to continue a fair rankings progression this year?

Is it then the red line 2017 move backwards players that we are more being too optimistic about? But then Mandy and Freya had their injury problems and our average predictions are quite close to their starting rankings of last year. Tara and Naomi's average predictions are interesting, looking pretty bang in the middle of their relatively small drop back for Naomi and big fall back for Tara. So I guess collectively we just about see all the improving players as continuing to improve and the players that fell back as going to recover somewhat. Be very good if that all happens . But again, arguably no range individually is obviously unrealistic - just it won't all happen ...

And one thing that I did mention in the "strongest nation" thread is that it is almost impossible to predict the one or two that will probably relatively crash through injury and / or unexpected severe loss of form so it is arguably very reasonable not to even try to predict the big fallers and accept taking a hit on one or two ( and of course the biggest 'hit' you actually get is zero, you get no negative scores ) and hope to be reasonably close with the rest.

As alway interesting to see, a very good one. Thanks, blob.
