Yes, Liam goes from WR312 on 24/12 to forecast WR271 on 07/01 according to OER - with 142 points on both dates.


Liam is up to WR 273 in the 31/12/18 rankings, the first under the new system.

I had expected his points indeed to be unchanged at 142. But actually his two lower level challenger L16s from Francavilla and Lisbon have been upgraded from 6 to 7 points giving him a total of 144.

Unexpected to me, and evidently OER, having missed this retrospective challenger point change amongst all the rest going on - assuming these points are correct.

Edit : Just checked and James, Evo, Jay and Brydan each had hallenger L16 6 pointers and have now gained points over what I had expected so that's at least consistent.

Not itf but in his story today in the mail online (I know, sorry) Mike dickson comments that the two challengers arranged in April last season, Glasgow is moving to September and Loughborough has been canned after one year.


Does anyone know if there is n official list of Gb events next year, Challenger and itf?




The LTA have only confirmed the grass season events on their site. Hopefully, they'll update the Challenger and Pro-series dates in the next week or two.
https://www.lta.org.uk/major-tennis-events/



They've now updated the pro-series page, but only to end of April. The only difference between this and what's on the ITF calendar is that it says Sunderland in April is both mens and womens.

I see from The Shrewsbury Club's site that they will be hosting a men's 25K in September.

The Women's 60K next month will be free Monday to Wednesday and from Thursday will be ticketed. They'll be pre-match entertainment from the QF onwards. The tournament will be live streamed. They also have tickets to hospitality events including drinks, street food, live music and interviews with the players. All sounds rather good. Interestingly, the final will still be on Saturday.

Ok, RedSquirrel, we need more info! The LTA or ITF sites dont mention any GB $25k events beyond the spring, so it looks like this is confirming something! Any idea what the events in September are, presumably they will be hardcourt, indoor or outdoor. Also the July dates look interesting - Roehampton/Woking in July could be grass or outdoor, any ideas on what they are (and are there any other events around these dates?)

Thanks for the information though!

From a women's POV, last year they had hard 25k hard outdoor in Woking from July 30th to Aug 5th and that was followed by 25k hard outdoor Chiswick the week after, so I'd imagine this would just be the same this year with this news.

Last year, they had the 25k indoor event 29th Oct to 4th Nov at Wirral, followed a week later by the 25k at Shrewbury. If I was guessing, this will be those events brought forward a few weeks, possibly with Loughborough replacing Shrewsbury with Shrewsbury already having an event in 2019 and Loughborough not. Would be great if the September event(s) was just an addition to the October/November events, but I can't see it.

hard outdoor in July/August is probably better in terms of the tennis season than grass, hope the mens equivalent at Roehampton is also hard court.

Sad to see Southsea go, but from a pure British perspective it is generally good news. Assuming the 4 post grass season 25ks all remain and that there was no additional money, there's more benefit using that Southsea 100k to upgrade one of the Feb 25ks to 60k and adding the 2 April 25ks as extras as a lot more GB players will benefit from that. We'll get a combined total of 8 MDWCs and 8 QWCs at Bolton and Sunderland, plus any others sneaking in as alts, whereas it was just 2 MDWCs at Southsea and although Boulter did really well, considering they are pretty much guaranteed to play a top 100 player, more often than not they'd go out in the first round.
