2019 Grass Court Season - Which British player will win the most MAIN DRAW SINGLES matches - a Poll!


Just to advise if any matches get played indoor as appears possible, I will still count them in these listings, they form part of the grass season regardless

Although there was no main draw action today, the qualies were completed for the weekend (grass and indoor) and take the qualies total wins for the end of Week 2 on grass:

1 S. Murray 2
T. Moore 2
2 A. Watson 1
B. Klein 1
E. Appleton 1
R. Peniston 1

So well done to Sam and Tara, and indeed Ryan and Brydan, and all move onto play matches in the main draw, for Tara against Maia and Brydan v Ryan, so we will certainly some British wins start to build on the main draw list. But the qualies can keep us amused for now.

Brydan, of course, topped the qualies list of wins in 2018 courtesy of getting 4 wins in various Challengers, a harder feat to replicate this year.

Sadly, others here reporting that Jodie will not play any further part in the grass season and so is a sad loss from this race.

One thing of note to anyone following this (and apologies if I am boring!) - last year 15 different Brits scored a win during the 6 weeks of the domestic grass season (singles). this season, 13 have scored a win to date. It may be that no one new scores in the next few weeks, but still it seemed to show a possibly broadening base. However, at the end of this second week last season 11 players had scored wins so we have improved on that by 2 players, or around 18%, so maybe that is something to note.

As a comparison also, at the end of week 2 last year (ie this week) we had managed 29 wins in total. This year to date, we have 21. Looking at it, we can expect at least 1 from Manchester, not sure re Nottingham and although it is at least 1 from Dan v Jack, we can hopefully see a few more there. So we may be just off the 29 total from last year come the end of this week, but not far

I would sincerely hope that isn't the case given that Jo, Cam and Kyle haven't played yet and should give us a win or two (or three!)

 Definitely! As an aside its lashing down here in Yorkshire, not sure what it is like in the tennis playing locations today?

June 13th draws to a close, with just Dan picking up a win and stretching his lead: Dan, Ryan, Gabi, Naomi and Sam are still in this week though so possibly more wins to add to the list, but we sit on 13 mens and 9 womens = 22 wins in total

1 D. Evans 6
2 H. Watson 2
J. Ward 2
K. Dunne 2
R. Peniston 2
6 B. Klein 1
G. Taylor 1
H. Dart 1
J. Draper 1
M. Lumsden 1
N. Broady 1
P. Jubb 1
S. Murray 1

June 14th singles list:

A win for Dan keeps him well clear but Sam Murray comes rushing up and takes 2nd outright, remarkable day for her and well deserved. Naomi also gets a win and moves to equal 3rd, probably disappointed not to have got the win over Sam. 26 wins in total now, 14 mens and 12 womens, so pretty equal.

1 D. Evans 7
2 S. Murray 3
3 H. Watson 2
J. Ward 2
K. Dunne 2
N. Broady 2
R. Peniston 2

8 B. Klein 1
G. Taylor 1
H. Dart 1
J. Draper 1
M. Lumsden 1
P. Jubb 1

Dan's almost got this wrapped up already. If he beats Koepfer tomorrow then that'll match Harriet and Katie's 2018 record, with many more events to come.

 It could well do. The two wild cards for me are a) that Dan is moving onto Queens, Eastbourne and Wimbledon, steps up from the Challenger level and he may have played ten matches in these two weeks by the end of the weekend ie how much beyond ten can he go. I hope he gets well beyond, but I do worry he may end up tired and if he wins this week and gets a win or two next, I would almost consider missing Eastbourne.

b) As FW reminded me earlier in this thread, Jo, Kyle and Cam are yet to start their runs and we have no idea where they could get to - 8 wins though from a standing start maybe a stretch but the chase is about to start!

June 15th list : Dan again manages the win and extends at the top as we reach 27 wins in the season (15 men, 12 women) and with Dan playing twice tomorrow that could stretch further. Dan has now beaten his total from last season and equalled the top spot level of Harriet and Katie B from 2018, with only 2 weeks out of 6 gone on the grass. If I was a bookie I would probably be paying out now on bets on Dan (thankfully he was my tip as well as several others!)

1 D. Evans 8
2 S. Murray 3
3 H. Watson 2
J. Ward 2
K. Dunne 2
N. Broady 2
R. Peniston 2
8 B. Klein 1
G. Taylor 1
H. Dart 1
J. Draper 1
M. Lumsden 1
P. Jubb 1

Oh well, for those of us who voted Jo, I think she's given Dan rather too much of a head start now!!

Seeing Dan now has a lead of 7, perhaps we can try some paired combinations to see if anyone can catch him? Tough that James' wins at Queens were both only q wins, considering whom he beat.
