 They most certainly do! Wimbledon qualies , Eastbourne , Bad Homburg, all count plus the usual other places our places will be participating 

but Wimbledon qualies will certain be ones to watch for this as well as many other reasons!

Just checking you weren't putting them with Wimbledon itself in July (the qualis are really a separate event, glad it's going in June)

 Agreed - I think we had a debate on this previously and I was persuaded that was correct !

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, followed by Golubic at Ilkley

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 also reached the Final of the Nottingham Challenger. 

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 officially 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.

15, Katie Boulter - for winning her first WTA 250 title at Nottingham as a wild card

16. Jodie Burrage - for being runner up for the first time in a WTA250 at Nottingham as a wild card

17. Heather Watson - for reaching the SF at Nottingham, producing some of her best tennis since last summer. Also she also reached the doubles final (with Harriet)

18. Sonay Kartal - very impressive over the first 3 weeks of the grass season beating WRs 113 (1 & 0), 125, 136 and 151 all in straight sets with her 2 losses being in 3 sets to WR 77 and WR 125 (Boulter).

So, with Harriet, Naiktha, Anna, Lily for the women, and then Liam, Charlie, Billy, JoMo and Toby in big matches today, and not nominated yet *, great chance to see more get on our list if they do well.

* Jodie already nominated but could build her record
* JoMo and Liam nominated as part of a doubles pair - if you feel they deserve an individual nomination, go ahead, there is no restriction and I will make sure to keep them apart in the groups voting if that transpires. Their individual record could include both their singles and doubles performances if that occurs, as a full record of their own performance

PS not forgetting the likes of Liam/Jonny and Joe in doubles QF action, plus many more around the world in the early stages of ITF or Junior action; the wheelchair play at Eastbourne seems to have disappeared from view, I am assuming something has caused to cancel it but it may just be reporting and system glitches? But the ITF and LTA seem to have stopped reporting after the Queens event and the ITF website has taken the Eastbourne events off

I think Billy's record will need updating before the end of the weekend - not sure anyone else yet though!

Not saying he is going to win or even get a vote, but a player who gets their first ever WR point deserves a nomination. I nominate Luke Simkiss.

Thanks Bob - that was nowhere near my radar! We need at least one more nomination now to even out more groups! How old is Luke, by the way ?
