I noticed Phoenix Weir and Ciara Moore still lead the British Tour "rankings" for this season, be interesting to see if they can be toppled by anyone - presumably no one this week and really no big events to come?

CD - do you know anything about Teodora Prisadnikova ? All I know is she is British and 15 years old, and her junior ranking is showing as 3502 !

Sorry, no. Maybe someone else can help?

I recognised her name just because she only got her first points pretty recently and, obviously, it's a pretty long, distinctive sort of name and I remember typing it in the junior rankings list (for some reason, I've always liked the name Teodora too )

And if I look her up I see she did a go-fund-me sort of thing which was a failure.

But that's pretty small fry ...... sorry.....

Teddy is from Newcastle, she's been based at the Northumberland Academy. There are a series of short clips from her training camp in Portugal earlier this year (posts around beginning of June) on https://en-gb.facebook.com/caldeiratennis/ (well actually it's mostly the coach talking. Lol.)

Thanks both. I was a little surprised to see her as top seed as I haven't heard of her.

Amelie beat her in the final is three sets

And maybe not Alexis' finest hour but I can't help smiling - crafty 'froggy' Nico - age 37 (!) - with his left hand/right hand 'now you see it, now you don't' tennis has beaten Alexis and takes the title: 7-5 6-3

Well done to Hamish, not only for winning but for supporting his hometown event - that gets kudos in my eyes.

And to Ellie Blackford (although a shout out to young Sophie Bekker too, who only lost to Ellie 11-9 in a MTB in the QFs)

Glasgow G2

(1) Hamish Stewart def. (4) Robert Leck 6-2 6-2

(1) Ellie Blackford def. (6) Amelie Brooks 6-4 6-2

Ellie's 2nd consecutive weeks win has moved her up from 19th on the leaderboard 2 weeks ago to, I make it, 5th and on the cusp of being invited to the Masters.

In anticipation of JonH's next question , the "invites" to the Masters will go to
Last year's winners (Harry Wendelken & Millie Rajecki)
British winners of Premier Tier (Phoenix Weir, Ciara Moore, Giles Hussey, Danielle Hack and Marcus Walters) [only 2 women as Michelle Dzjachangirova won the other Premier Tier and she plays under the Azerbaijan flag having recently switched from Netherlands]
Top 3 on the leaderboard (currently Phoenix Weir, Oscar Wai, Patrick Foley, Ciara Moore, Kate Mansfield, Chesca Simpson)
1 WC
Any places not taken/required go to the next on the leaderboard (with this week's pts added I think those would be Mason Dace, Stefan Cooper, Teddy Prisadnikova, Ellie Blackford)

But with 3,000 ranking points for a G2 win and 4,000 pts for a G1 win its all to play for over the next month.

I think that is Amelie's second BT win - she's been progressing nicely this year.
