Will this put Jack anywhere near the top 300? Nothing to defend from this time last year as I recall due to injury.

Jack has 6 points coming off from reaching the SF last year, so not gong to make a lot of difference in the long run. 12 points for reaching the final, so nett gain of 6. But over the next three months, he has just three one-pointers to his name, so might make a move then.

As the addict indicates, with 6 points coming off he'll stil be a bit short.

But if he wins the title and so adds  a further 14 net points ( on top of 2 net points from last week ) he will move up to 135 points on 02/03 and be very close.

OER has that as a projected 298 ranking on 02/03. Now that allows for all points due to come off and clearly not for what further points other players might add this coming Monday or the next, but he will at least be very close to the top 300 if he wins the title here. 

And if not, yes, Jack should surely add the necessary points in the coming months. And then onwards towards 200 ...

Cheers folks. Aged 18 and 2 months exactly, Jack is now a similar ranking to Andy at 18 and nearly 2 months just prior to his big 2005 Queens and Wimbledon breakthrough, so the next year could be very interesting.

Having said that, the Sinner man is only 4 months older than Jack and heading towards the top 50 so will be a formidable obstacle for anyone in years to come.

Jack currently a break up in the decider at *2-1, having handed out a bagel in the first set but losing the 2nd 7-5.

Edit

Scrap that.  Back on serve at 2-2*

this is the list of wins at the two GB ITF events so far this February. Jack has the most but not sure he will feel 6 wins is enough, the two chaps on 5 of course only played 1 event each.

I am not sure what a decent haul of wins for Brits would be, will update after Sunderland

J. Draper 6
L. Poullain 5
K. Zuk 5
M. Whitehouse 4
A. McHugh 4
C. Heyman 4

He has to start making ranking gains. If he gets stuck in Futures for another year he's likely to stay there.

That would be a disappointing stall if Jack, with high anbitions, was still playing futures. But he would still be well ahead of the game. Fairly temporary stalls happen so often before moving on again.

His efforts so far have him, after turning 18 in December, as the 6th ranked under 19 in the world.

I certainly wouldn't be condemning him to such a likely ongoing futures fate at then still just 19. And would still expect much more to come.

We've all seen British players settle into their funded comfort zone playing Futures, particularly LTA ones, and gradually watch their careers stagnate. Futures are like the Quattara Depression for British tennis players.

Why compete against players ranked 800 or 1500 when you've already beaten Sock and Young? Surely he should be targetting Challenger qualifying rounds and pitching himself against players ranked around the 250 mark. Is that not the test right now or are more easily gained points the priority?

I think we will soon enough see him looking to push on the challenge again.

A few GB 25Ks and matchplay early in the year is no real issue to me.
