 Major colonel Findel Hawkins at 340?  Over on MTF you would be given a warning for deliberate trolling.

Personally when I saw that JFH prediction I thought actually that could be a good shout and momentarily considered adding him to my 10 instead of Mr Klein.

I predict that Jack will at least be close enough to GB #10 to earn some score.

JFH is one of the few guys that will have any ATP ranking under the new scheme - and I reckon he'll ick up a few points. Only needs around 60 during the year to get to WR350.

And I reckon that's more than Glasspool will get ;)

Anyway let's recall Vandy's reply to cecil in last year's predictions.

"James Ward 178?

Surely this is classed as trolling?"

James was ultimately WR 194, within 10% and earning 4 out of a maximum 5 world points as well as GB points for cecil.

Plus Vandy now starts a thread regarding the possibility of James ending 2019 as GB #2. So who knows where he will be regarding JFH a bit down the line.

He is a one. Hey ho.

He's one of the 4 with 1 point for reaching a 25k final!

Pick any two from Draper, Storrie, Watson, JFH, Peniston and McHugh - they're all in the same position with 6, 1 or 0 points.

Mr Positive is in town. So here goes.

Edmund 6
Murray 8
Evans 49
Norrie 52
Clarke 121
Choinski 155
Ward 180
Hoyt 214
Broady 225
Draper 315

I think it will be very difficult for anyone outside the current Top 500 to make huge leaps this year as the new rankings system is going to hold them back. Already plenty of criticisms of the system and strange anomalies being highlighted on Twitter.

Though Alex Ward has shot back up over 300 places to WR 404 in the first rankings of the new era  

Seriously yes, be interesting to see which previously futures players can now make the necessary impression in challengers if they can get into challengers at all. Will it indeed prove very difficult? How the best young players like Jack and Aidan can continue to develop will be telling.

Re the twitter comments so much going on I always thought that unintended consequences and anomalies were likely and we haven't properly got going yet. I'm rather doubting that they have had computer models looking at loads of scenarios, which could have exposed some of these in advance, and that there will be a lot of crossing fingers.

Sorry, not really the place to waffle on so much re these changes.
