RE: February 2024 Player of the Month Nominations Thread


Just a quick update to Harriet's entry to show she made the final of the doubles.

And that's a great nomination from CD (and one of the reasons I enjoy PoM, bringing my attention to performances like that).

 

1 - Jodie Burrage for reaching the quarter finals of the WTA500 in Linz from qualifying, including getting through some tough moments with composure.

2 - Felix Gill for reaching the semi final of an ATP Challenger 75 - on clay - beating 2 seeds & other higher ranked players on the way

3 - Lily Miyazaki for winning the tournament at Andrezieux-Boutheon; some great wins, including beating the top seed in the SF.

4 - Heather Watson for a timely reminder that she can still mix it with the top players. At the Abu Dhabi WTA 500, she reached the final in the doubles (with Linda Noskova), resulting in her rocketing up the doubles rankings. In singles at the same event, she came through qualifying and then won her first round match against the world number 16.

5 - Harriet Dart for coming through qualifying and making the semi-final of a 250K event for the first time, beating WR 56 on the way. Also for making the final in doubles.

6 - Mark Ceban - age 14 - won the single title at the J60 Tunisia. This will boost him to about JWR 350, and take him to third best player in the world for his age

As an aside, Sarah Copley won the singles title AND the doubles title at the J30 at Liverpool last week

If somebody thinks that's worthy of a nomination, or follows Sarah, in particular, it would be a reasonable shout.

I didn't because (a) it's only a J30 (the very lowest of the junior ITF events), (b) Sarah is 16, rising 17, not a tiddler, and (c) there's another J30 this week so it seemed to me, if she won them again, this week, then that would be cause for a nomination but I couldn't get too excited about just one week's worth

However, again, just putting it out there if anyone feels otherwise.....

Equally, Hep won the J200 in Germany which seems quite a big deal (she's the same age as Sarah, for what it's worth). Again, I was waiting just to see what else she did this month, but it could merit a nomination in and of itself

Nice one Christine, good to see a team nomination! In general, our pro mens players havent made an impact yet this month, compared to the women, so hope one or two of them may get through - early potents in Glasgow look promising

Good list developing again this month. Remembering, the close date is March 3rd, plenty of time left. I suspect we could get somewhere in the 15-20 nominations range again this month if things continue like this. 8 at the halfway part of the month.

Thank you Tanaqui!

Still two weeks left so plenty of time to unfold - at this point, feels like last
Month, where anyone of several could win it; lots of good performances but no one yet quite sticking their head above the rest
