Entries Week 29 - 15/07/19


Brilliant to see Chloe Compson (who's never won a MD match at ITF level, and barely a Q one) as second seed

 Yes Emilie Lindh - currently without a WTA ranking but with a good few matches won - is behind her in the seeds.

 Shalimova is top seed with 4 WTA points - all W25 L32 points, one WC but three from getting through qualifying so a much better record wink

 My 'brilliant', obviously, was rather tongue in cheek.....daft, the whole thing........hmm

That Chloe is ahead of Emilie is a by-product of the split rankings that will be resolved next month so I don't think needs mentioning again. That players with Chloe's record can have a WTA ranking at all is a more pertinent issue that really needs dealing with. I don't blame Chloe at all. If she can take advantage of badly designed rules all credit to her.

As an aside, I haven't checked the latest rankings but on entry rankings Chloe is 3rd seed. Carrillo Marin is top seed. Seeds are WTA top 650, ITF top 30, then remaining WTA and ITF.

 Yes, I know CD... and I was just emphasising the irony of it all .... As 2nd seed hope she wins a few games in her first round match. Even any qualifier she meets will have a higher ITF ranking than her, meaning they've won more matches at W15 level. She did at least get some games in her last match against a player who did well subsequently...

As above, the Premier event at Nottingham has attracted a lot of decent names.

The top two seeds are Freya and Alice Gillan, but there's also some of our very good juniors playing, and college players.

And a very good looking win for the girl/woman of mystery Angelica Blake. 6-1 6-4 over the 6th seed Lithuanian Andre Lukosiute, who often does will in these type of events. If this was her first match since her nationality switch a few months ago, then it's a pretty good start.

I'd forgotten this was on - I'll have a look this evening and post in the British Tour thread (unless CD does it first).

But premature but US Open entries now confirmed:

Four direct British entries for the US Open - Konta, Edmund, Norrie and Evans. As expected, Andy Murray hasn't used his protected ranking. Heather Watson six out of main draw.


(I was going to put the British Tour matches up when they got to the QFs but no problem, of course, with putting them up earlier, the addict ! )

NP, CD - I was only going to post the seeds for now anyway - and note a couple of other players I spotted.

Cut offs for USO is quite high due to several (male) players using PR, Vandegweghe and Cici Bellis using PR for the women's.
