Im expecting both Katie B and Jodie B will be in here in short order - whichever wins today for sure but, being frank, it would be wrong for the loser to not be here - both of them have a stronger case than quite a few who are on here. So, can I ask whoever ends up nominating them that they put both players up and just choose the appropriate narrative.

I also anticipate another nomination at least post Nottingham mens final.


 Sorry, Jon, you can't 'not nominate' yourself but then tell others who to nominate smile

NB I 100% expect them all to be nominated too but I'm not putting up someone because you say it would be 'wrong' not to

 No fair dos and I wasnt really trying to say or suggest that although I can see it clearly came over like that- I was more musing out loud and , more widely , thinking thar there are some really highly credible nominees and they arent even on the list yet - and we are only 3 weeks into 5. 

 

it was more me saying, wow, what a couple of weeks , than anything directional! 

but it came across as directional! Haha.

1 Emily Webley-Smith - For her first singles wins of 2023, regaining her WTA ranking and qualifying for the main draw of a 100k tournament.


2 Harry Wendelken - two stellar matches to come through Surbiton Challenger qualis - the one against PHH was just brilliant - deserves the nomination for that alone

3 Isabelle Lacy - qualifying for Surbiton 100k and beating top 100 Madison Brengle in the MD

4 Toby Martin - first ITF singles QF since 2021, first in M25 since 2019, after beating the 2nd seed, ATP 346, and battling his next win in 3h 41m

5 Andy Lapthorne - French Open quad wheelchair doubles champion with Donald Ramphadi, unseeded. His 14th career doubles slam. Has come back from severe mental health problems and deserves to get back to the winners circle

6.Kristina Paskauskas - reaching finals of ITF W15 - Monastir, Tunisia, unseeded, beating higher ranking players than herself, only beaten by top seed of much higher ranking

7. Emily Appleton for qualifying for a 1st WTA 250. I'd like to nominate all 4 tbh but she was the biggest surprise.

8. Katie Swan playing superb tennis the whole week at W100 Surbiton, beating the #1 seed (WR67) and reaching the biggest final contested by a British woman for a year or so.

9. Grace Chinwike - only 13 - has just won TWO titles at J30 level, back to back, in Nigeria.

10. George Loffhagen -  reached the QF in the Nottingham Challenger, beating Virtanen WR 131 in the process. Will be into the world top 400 and GB top 10.


11. Liam Broady/Jonny O'Mara - Having won the Surbiton Challenger they are now in the Final of the Nottingham Challenger. As yet, unbeaten on grass this season.

12. Billy Harris - for a CH ranking win against Lestienne (WR67) at qualies of Queens. I think only the 2nd time he's beaten a top 100 player.

13. Jacob Fearnley & Johannus Monday - for winning the doubles title in the Nottingham Challenger 125 - despite being offiicially unranked (0+510) and both only 21

14. Andy Murray - Andy returns to the top.40 for the first time since 2018 and no doubt the first top 40 singles player with a metal hip, after his Surbiton and Nottingham challenger titles.

Well I think Heather is missing here, so I'm adding her in. Totally different from performances earlier this year and looking to be back close to her best. She ran an in-form Katie very close in the SF.

It's Katie B. for me  simply for winning a WTA singles title. Remember when we went 24 years with Sara Gomer winning a title in 1988 and  not again until Heather in 2012. At least we have had more success since then with Heather and Jo each winning 4 titles, Emma winning a title  which  most players only ever dream about and Katie winning a title now.

 Well, lets see - 2 weeks of play to still go and a lot could change, and players build on there current records

 Yes, though as we end week 3 I certainly think that Katie B is in pole position. Be great if I personally have to end up coming back to this and seriously consider someone else.

  no doubt she is, but after week 1 and then week 2, it was someone else, and weeks 4 and 5 have big events at queens and Birmingham and Eastbourne that could throw up all sorts of interesting results.

 Maybe.Our men might do something at Queens but hard to see our women replicating Nottingham.  Of course Wimbledon qualifying is also on next week as well.
