2020 - Who is your favourite British Player?! THE FINAL


So here we are, a starting line up of 60 whittled down to 13, 5 men and 8 women. 

The list is shown on the poll. We all know the format by now, voting can start now and will finish around 5pm Friday. 

The winner will have the most votes!

Players listed in alphabetical surname order.  

Have fun and please say who you vote for, it would be great to see who and why!

Well, I've got the ball rolling and an early lead for evo is the result!

Dan's game just excites me the most of all Brits and resonates with how I like the game played. 


I'll call a halt now!

 Well done, good to be clear and know your mind! Saves all the inner turmoil!

Dan got my vote, made a mess, sorted it, came back stronger. And I just love his game.

All five of my first round picks made the final, so I'm going to sleep on it, as I can't decide between three of them.

Andy in 2005, 2006, 2007..... 2018, 2019 and still in 2020.

I would agree that Dan is a very deserving choice, and his story around overcoming adversity twice to get where he is currently is a great story - but of course much of what he has battled throughout his life are his own demons, even if in mitigation there are plenty of class dimensions to his story. So very compelling - but I also still wish he'd behave better on court and sometimes towards others. So I like Dan, and enjoy watching him, but he won't get my vote. Even so, that still leaves me a short list of 5-6 to wade through...

Had to go with Kedders, having had the privilege of following his progress since before he had his first ranking point.

Edit

Bored stiff in lock down and just looking back at some of Kyle's old matches.  Is it really over 8 years since I saw him thrash Mark Vervoort in Q2 of Murcia futures. Even now I can still hear Vervoort swearing out loud as Kyle smashed those forehands past him during a 1st set bagel.  Kyle had just turned 17. 

Vervoort - "Does this kid never ******* miss"

Happy days.

I'd expect Heather to get a few votes.

She had 8 in Round 1 when grouped with Andy (10) and 7 in the SF when grouped with Dan (11).

 Yes, indeed, the votes for all players in the first two rounds where:

Dan E - 14+11 = 25

Andy M - 10+11 = 21**

Jo K - 11+5 = 16

Heather W - 8 + 7 = 15

Emily W-S - 7+6 =13

Harriet D - 8 +5 =13

Sam M-S - 6+5 = 11

Emma R - 6+4 = 10

Kyle E - 6+3 = 9

Jamie M - 2+6 = 8**

Joe S - 3+4 = 7 **

Beth G - 3+3 = 6

Amanda C - 2+3 =5 **

** these 4 players saw their votes rise from Rd 1 to the Semis - Andy, Jamie, Joe and Mandy - in Jamie's case dramatically from 2 to 6!

We are about at quarter way time wise in the vote, 14 votes in and 8 players have received votes. Very close and anyone can win this. Currently , dan leads on 4, andy 3 , kyle 2 and then 5 players on 1 vote each - jo, heather, beth, emily and emma.

Our doubles fans are yet to put their weight behind jamie and joe!

 

Mandy,  harriet and Sam (our march player of the month) waiting to get off the mark also.
