A quick question, probably aimed at TA but anyone can respond. One of the criteria to qualify for our player of the season vote is to be top British doubles player.

In the womens, Liv and Lissey took that honour last year, where very close to each other ranking wise and played entirely as a pair, so they qualified via that route.

This season Naiktha Bains leads and , although it is probably open, she is most likely to end up number one Brit. Maia Lumsden is second and not far behind but not as close as last seasons top two. Naiktha and Maia are largely playing as a pair but have some events apart.

Question - if Naiktha ends up number one, should we count her as sole doubles number one or with Maia as a pair?

Actually Maia is could well end up as GB #1 because of a combination of reasons which I have set out below.

I would expect the top doubles player to be just that - one player - but I'm flexible and if others think it could be a pair I don't mind. Naiktha and Maia only paired up in April I believe after Naiktha returned from Australia.
I must admit I am a little biased as a long-time follower of Lissey (and Liv since they paired up).

The points - infomation from Coric live rankings
Naiktha is on 994 points - leading Maia by 70 points on 924.
Naiktha has been out with an injury and I don't know when she will return or how serious the injury is. She has two 50 point counters from Australia dropping before the end of the year with a 29 and a 15 point to replace them.
Maia has one 15 point counter coming off with a one point to replace it.
So Naiktha will finish on a minimum of 938 points. Maia will have a minimum of 910 points so just a couple of wins away.

If Naiktha isn't fit I would expect Maia to find another partner for Shrewsbury and Glasgow where I would expect her to pick up at least 30 points and possibly more like 100. A W100 title is worth 140 points so plenty to play for.

Incidentally, Lissey and Liv aren't very far behind with 875 and 841 points, but have a 95 point dropping off to be replaced by 29 points.

 more interesting than I thought, thanks TA. Let's keep an eye on it , then, as i know you will, and take a call at season end, I suggest! Probably the closest of the number one races for GB players, apart from maybe junior girls - all the other categories (mens and womens singles, mens doubles, junior boys and wheelchairs) seem clearcut. The girls and womens doubles seem open races to me, at least.

 Naiktha's best 11 counters from this year total 938 points.

This is made up of 3 counters with a couple of other partners totalling 94 points and 8 counters since April with Maia totalling 844 points ( including the 430 points from their Wimbledon QF ).

Unless possibly one does produce some big results with a different partner in the next couple of months, I think they should be counted as a pair if either ends up as our #1 ranked doubles player.

 which raises the question of whether Hannah can be reasonably expected to top the girls or would someone else like Ranah and Mimi stand a chance of toppling her?
