Sounds good to me. If Emilie does the double then I'll nominate her.

 You might have to beat Jaggy to it, with how well her hobby is going

Date:

1. Georgina Hays - aged 16 - for beating WTA 537 Xinxin Yao in ITF France 25k, QR1

2. Annabel Hristova - aged 14 - she won the singles AND the doubles in the J60 in Norway. Her first event at this level. Only her 7th ITF tournament ever.

3. Tamara Kuti - aged 15 - winning the doubles in Senegal J60.

4. Jack Draper - returned from injury to reach the last 16 at Indian Wells and beat Dan Evans and then Andy Murray in the process, both in straight sets.

5. Emma Raducanu - beat Linette and Haddad Maia, two circa top 20 players, in a run to the last 16, winning 3 matches in one event of this level for only the first time since her US Open triumph in 21.

6. Oliver Bonding - reached the final of the J300 Indian Wells, seeded 5th, and entered the JR Top 50 as a 2007 born player

7. Gordon Reid - after a season dogged by injury, Gordon reached the semis of the Super Series Cajun Classic, beating two seeded players in doing so. He re-enters the singles top 10 at WR9; also won the Cajun Classic and Georgia Open doubles in partnership with Alfie Hewett and goes back to WR 2 in doubles after falling to 6

8. Billy Harris - For reaching his first ever Challenger Final and his first ever win against a Top 100 player.

9. Liam Broady - For his ongoing consistently high level and reaching another Challenger Final

10. Charlie Robertson (born 2006) - for reaching two consecutive J200 finals in the Dominican Republic and winning the second.

11. Benjamin Gusic Wan (born 2007) - for winning two consecutive J100 titles on home soil in Loughborough.

12. Jan Choinski - for repeated progress - down to 692 last August - take a look at him now. Into semis of ATP Challenger 125 in Mexico City. About about to break into top-200

13. Ben Jones - having drifted around the ATP 1300s or so for several, Ben suddenly had a lightbulb month - making the final of a 25k in singles, in Canada, and smashing into the top-900

14. Joel Pierleoni & Matt Howse - as wildcards, out of nowhere, from unranked, this month the duo have been runners-up and now champions in Egypt 15k doubles

15. Jodie Burrage - winning the W60 in France - her biggest title to date - and reaching a new CH in the process (WR109 to be confirmed). RU doubles in same event.

 Emilie of course has a sustained month as well, not just this week but in the final a couple of weeks ago, a title this week already and another singles final this week as well. 

Looking at our list, she would become a genuine contender for the vote if she wins today and gets nominated. Charlie Robertson, Ben Gusic Wan and Joel/Matt shouldn't be underestimated either , even though there may be more players with headline making performances in the nomination list. Of course, Emilie needs to get onto the list first!

This is a great list of achievements at different levels. But how do you decide who just had the edge this month and should be honoured. Not an easy decision. But great to see so many doing well at their current levels.

 It's been a while since it's been a tough decision based on achievement, rather than who had the least worse month. I've got 4 on my radar.
