January 2023 Player of the Month Nominations (incl December 2022)


1. Katy Dunne - was doing so well, a firm favourite for just being fun, and upbeat, and a nice person, and then has been injured for ages, and now has won the 15k title in Sharm. Which she brilliantly followed up by promptly winning another 15k in Sharm, including a win against the top seed, ranked 435

2. Scott Duncan for his continued doubles success, Lost in Sharm El Sheikh 23 F and won Sharm El Sheikh 24 F getting his ranking close to challenger acceptance next season.

3. Ali Habib - for getting his first ever ATP ranking point by beating a seeded opponent in R1 ranked inside the Top 700, in Sharm El Sheikh; followed up in M25 by qualifying and then beating Mark Whitehouse (WR 526)

4. Jasmine Conway - 18yrs old lost in Sharm El Sheikh 24 W15 semi final and runner up in Sharm El Sheikh 25 W15 final. Now into world top 600.

5. Cameron Norrie - for winning every match in the United Cup, beating Nadal and Fritz who are both ranked higher than him (top 10). Reached final of ATP250 New Zealand Open in Auckland

6. Katie Boulter - for winning the ITF W60 in Canberra.

7. Andy Murray - 5 hour MTB win over 13th seed Matteo Berretini, AO Round One, an epic victory which shows Andy isn't finished yet! And then Andy does it again with brass knobs with the longest match of his career to beat Kokkinakis in round 2 !

8- Eliz Maloney for reaching the final at the Loughborough 25k and thus keeping her 30 points from Bath last year.

9. Dan Little - for winning M25 Sheffield as a qualifier for his first ever ITF singles title

I will almost certainly add Alfie or Alfie and Gordon as a pair but want to see if Alfie wins the singles final tomorrow before deciding - it will be one or the other but not both!

 I see that Eliz and Dan are adding to their record with good doubles weeks this week; maybe an update in order before the weekend is done.

While there's no denying that Cam Norrie played well at the United Cup in Sydney, it does seem a bit unfair to single him out from an excellent GB Team performance. In fact, one could argue that Swan as the second string women's player played equally well, and made the difference for the Team to advance to the City final. Swan, having won her first ever singles match for GB against the Australian Hives in the first tie, then fought back from 1 set and a break down to beat an in-form Parrizaz-Dyas (around 60 places higher ranked than Swan) in the tie with Spain, and then in the City final against the US, she was very close to beating Madison Keys WR11, and perhaps would have done so if were not for suffering from sickness in the middle of the match after dominating early on and taking the 1st set. All the players in the GB team contributed to a great run, and despite having an initial seeding of about 14th of the 18 teams, they performed closer to 2nd or 3rd strongest over the week.

Also to point out the possible inconsistency, in the December 2022 poll, the concensus was that the GB team in the BJK Cup finals should get the nomination, that when Harriet Dart had an absolute stand-out performance over the week.

 Hi Foobarbaz - all good points; I guess for Cam, he came through and won the ATP 250 Auckland so I am happy that his performance over the month deserves a nomination for him individually.

Re Katie and / or the GB United Cup team as a whole deserving a nomination for their respective performances, I am not at all worried if someone wants to go ahead and do one or both or the other. Every month is different and the main aim here is to find someone deserving. V happy if you or someone else wants to nominate the team as a whole (and against Cam who has a wider performance track record for the month) or Katie as a player (not sure what her wider performance is like, I havent followed too closely). I guess the point is that Cam ultimately has done more than just the United Cup, though, so I think that backs it up.

But go for it if you wish to, not an issue at all!   


PS In retrospect, we were possibly a little harsh on Harriet that month (it was the November PoM in fact, although the vote was in early December) but , as mentioned, Cam ended up doing more in the month and effectively separated himself from the team. 

It is difficult though - and the same goes for doubles pairs - I am struggling with nominating Alfie or Alfie and Gordon as a pair, effectively a team, from the AO. But if Alfie wins the singles title as well as their doubles title, I will feel comfortable he has done more than Gordon and deserves the nod. 

complex!!
