2023 British tournaments


Anyone know why the LTA don't use Bolton any more for pro tour events?
Decent venue, plenty of courts, cafe on site and hotels nearby.

Didn't want to create a new thread for this and thought this was the best place for this.
When looking at the Bath drawhseet I clicked through to Patrick Brady's ITF profile noticing he has managed to make the top 1000 by not having to play outside of the UK.

This got me thinking what the number of ranking players looks like compared to how many home tournaments we put on. Anyway I thought I'd add the stats.
I've just looked at ITF tournaments(15/25k) for ATP rankings, so doesn't include challenger and ATP tour. The rankings are year end rankings.

20210*692213

201218603512
201117523014
201017532312
200916522811

* No UK tournaments due to covid
** 3 tournaments played before covid another 5 were shown as cancelled
*** ATP stopped giving out points below Challenger

Does obviously appear to make a difference and these days with the ITF points that can be gained in qualifying this will also help our players get into overseas ITF qualifying. 
On top of these we now have the UK Pro League, which this season will give another 11 weeks of money tournaments. So 27 weeks in the year for players to either being able to play for ranking points on in meaningful prize money tournaments.

Did we really have just 17 ranked men in 2018?! Wow.

Interesting analysis and the Italians have proven the benefit of this. Do we also need to grow our challenger events as more players hit the top 500.

 It really confused me for a while, I thought the rankings were not loading properly until i remembered about the changes in ATP points being given out. Was a terrible system of needing to almost earn promotion to the next level.

I wonder if that peak point in 2013 and 14 was also in some way linked to Andy winning the Olympics in 2012 and Wimbledon later in 2013?

 Excellent topic. Also worth remembering that a lot of the older tournaments were at 10K/15K level that the LTA doesn't do anymore. thumbsup.gif

 Fyi Bolton is being used starting today and also next week for two ITF Wheelchair Tour events. 

https://www.itftennis.com/en/tournament/bolton-indoor-itf3-wheelchair-tennis-tournament/gbr/2023/wc-itf3s-gbr-01a-2023/

 

this week is a series 3 event, next week a level higher at 2. This weeks top seeds are all around the edge of the top 10 and a quite international field; next week should be slightly stronger .

Tickets for Surbiton are coming up as sold out(?) I find that hard to believe, is it more likely they are not actually on sale yet, does anybody know from previous years?

(Highly recommended if anyone was thinking of attending that has not been before)
