2022 Women's Ranking Prediction Competition


 

Time to start scratching your heads and come up with your predictions for 2022

Just so everyone is clear, and for anyone who didnt take part last year, here are the competition rules

Select 10 players and give your prediction of their end-of season GB ranking and world ranking.

As in the 2021 competition one substitute player is allowed, who must be named as such at the same time as the main selection of 10. Their predicted WR must also be given. The eleventh player may be substituted for any one of your main selections, but only in the two weeks immediately following the end of Wimbledon (i.e. 12th to 26th July only, to be confirmed precisely nearer the time). This will give a little flexibility, particularly in the case of long-term injuries, and will make it more interesting. The substitute will take your prediction of the GB ranking of the player they replace, so for example if you replaced Katie Boulter (GB #4) with Tara Moore, Tara would become your #4 prediction so think carefully !

Continuing from last year, there will be two dummy entries, AsYouWere (based on the starting rankings) and Mr Average (based on everyones WR predictions). Mr Average did quite well last year !

Points wll be awarded with a maximum of 10 ponts per player split between GB ranking and world ranking.

GB rankings. 5 points for a correct prediction, 4 for one out, 3 for 2 out, 2 for 3 out, 1 for 4 out or more than 4 out and player finishes in GB top 10. Note you can get points if a player finishes as low as GB14 e.g. You predict 10 they finish 14 difference is 4 so 1 point. You also get a point if your player finishes in the top ten if you havent gained any points already i.e. you predict GB7 and they finish GB1 you still get one point.

World ranking. 5 points if your prediction is within 5%, 4 if +/- 10%, 3 if +/- 15%, 2 if +/- 20% and 1 if  within +/- 25%  The reason why world ranking points is on % is that there is a big spread of rankings for GB top 10, so this method tries to even it out.

The closing date for entries is midnight on Dec 31st to give me time to process the entries before the tours start again. The finishing date for the competition will be the Monday after the ATP finals or after any later WTA events, although this may be extended further depending on the tour calendars and participation of our players. I won't be putting any entries onto the spreadsheet before Christmas, so until then you can change your entry as much as you like - but please, do it by editing your post rather than posting afresh, to save me some work !
