Groups placed - not sure what chance there is of anymore players joining the party, 20 is a record, that is for sure!

If we get 21, I might make myself a little work and make it 3 groups of 7; 22 and I will keep it at 2 of 11. Like to keep it balanced. It is all about balance!!

I am not sure if nominations will close Saturday or Sunday - depends on whether anyone is still playing by Sunday!! I will see where we are when we have the Friday feeling post tomorrow and if Sunday play is possible still, let's see.

I will announce either way on Saturday at some stage but it could be a quick call if players go out by Saturday evening, as I want to try and get this vote done before too much attention changes to Wimbledon!

Looks like its down to the singles in just three or four itf events as to whether anyone is still playing Sunday - will keep a close eye as when they are all out I will give a couple of hours for final nominations and then we will go!

We seem to have Simkiss, Tarvet, Matusevich, Goodger/Summers still left in for Saturday play. The singles finals would be Sunday if any of the 3 make it.

Women look like they are effectively all done for the week?

Wheelchair action is all done or will be tomorrow.

Not sure re juniors ? Roehampton is a July event so doesnt count to this process.

So looks like the mens singles players and doubles pair are who we are watching to see if anyone comes into this list - Simkiss is of course already on it but can add to his record

Count anton out of that. Just Oli tarvet and Luke Simkiss to determine the timings and possibly the numbers of participants as well

Alisha lost her singles earlier and has just lost her doubles as well, so no women left going into Saturday

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. Then in the Eastbourne ATP 250 event he lost a very tight 3 setter to the former JWR 1 ( 19 yo Van Assche WR 79 ). Into the world top 400 and GB top 10, and awarded a Wimbledon MD WC

11. Liam Broady/Jonny O'Mara - Having won the Surbiton Challenger they also reached the Final of the Nottingham Challenger. Was awarded a Wimbledon MD WC

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 on grass during the month, beating 6 top 160 players - WRs 110, 113 (1 & 0), 125, 136, 151, and 157, all in straight sets, with her 4 losses being to WRs 51, 68, 77, and 125 ( Boulter - now top 100 ), 3 of these being in 3 sets. Was awarded a Wimbledon MD WC.

19. Luke Simkiss - Getting his first ever World Ranking point by taking out a player ranked 716 which means a career high ranking scalp in the process.

20. Anna Brogan - reaching the final round of Wimbledon qualifying despite little support from the powers that be and beating the 5th seed

Thanks Bob - and snuck Oli Tarvet in as well.

I can only see one possible addition to the group this weekend, although not sure where juniors stand and CDs propensity to add players from there!

Haha.

Anyway, 21 if it sticks will be 3 groups of 7; 22 will take us back to 2 of 11. 23 is just my worst nightmare. Conversely 24 would be my dream, but highly unlikely!

That wasn't me.  See the post above mine from Johnny Aitch.

Edit

Good shout though.  He certainly deserves to be in there.
