Seeds of course are based on the latest available rankings when the qualifying draw is made. If the womens qualifying draw is on Monday of qualifying week then seeds will be based on rankings issued on 10 Jan. If Adelaide or the two Melbourne events in week 1 are regarded as the same Melbourne events that took place in the week before qualifying last year then the points from those events would drop on 10 Jan. If that were the case, as things stand, Fran would be seeded ahead of Katie (if Katie is seeded at all) as Katie would have a 55 pont counter dropping on 10 Jan and Fran has nothing of note dropping before the Aus Open.


I don't think the not taking off WTA points if not consideted the "same" tournament applies any more. It is just a question of when they come off in early 2022.

I don't think Katie's Melbourne points come under the "best of" 2020/21 points and so I think they will not come off until the 52 week anniversary in February. So not until after the Aus Open.

Anyway that I think is the position since the September WTA announcement:

Wasn't sure where to put this, interesting video about how lower ranked players make ends meet featuring Liam Broady and Alicia Barnett.

There are probably 3 sports that are Gender equal in terms of popularity, Tennis, Athletics and Gymnastics, none of them market themselves to their audiences particularly well. In the age of Social media there is potentially an opportunity to build an individual following, maybe something the LTA could do better.

Could we be in a position where we have 5 direct entries to the US mens ? Or Wimbledon even?

Cam, Dan, Andy, Liam and Jack all in the top 100?

Or by the AO?

Im going to say 4 by Wimbledon , 5 for US.

With wildcards x say 5 or 6 for Wimbledon and maybe a qualifier, we could be looking at 10-12 players in the mens draw in total.

 Am I right in think that a PR can only be used for one slam? So likely to take a WC for Wimbledon and use PR for US? Assuming he is fit by the summer.
