Little news summary for this week.
With the Murrays out of action for the week you'd expect it to be quiet on the boards but the return of Tim Henman to the tour after a long time off with injury saw this didn't happen. Also, the board was buzzing with news that a young guy by the name of Youzhny was making a big footprint on the game. Oh, and a star studded audience turned out earlier in the week to watch Boggo lose. So all of this has done what to our ranking places? Singles
Big 4 first:
Andy being out of action this week gave Djokovic the oppertunity to make some points on him, which he did, (only 15 though, so nothing to worry about) and he slips -1
Good news is these guys seem to be pulling away from Gasquet who's trailing 110 points behind Andy.
Tim, despite winning his first match back has managed to slip out of the top 40 -7
Boggo Still floating around that 150 mark slips again -2
this week to 153
Richard Bloomfield starts the catchup going +11
Other big movers:
A lot of big movers in the singles this week:
Greg slips further still falling -3
this week to 245
And Joshua Goodall slips back a little -1
to put him 213
Jamie Baker unfortunately has big disappointment this week by falling -14
Biggest mover in singles this week is a whopping -396
places. And the honour goes to David Sherwood who now sits at 1173
A whole host of other 3-figure movements this week, unfortunately most of them in the wrong direction, the biggest drops going to Ian Flannagan and Colin Fleming.
But two outside ranked youngsters (well 18 year olds) had big results this week both of them reaching new career highs.
Edward Corrie is +100
and Matthew Illingworth +117
Big week in singles, now doubles:Doubles
The big 4:
Jamie Murray, losing 129 places in his singles ranking but yet sitting on the sidelines waiting for an alternate place has clearly decided on his career path, and no wonder as his doubles ranking continues to climb +1
places to 43
James Auckland also climbing that little bit. He's back into the top 60 with a climb of +3
Andy and Jamie Delgado switch places again this week as Andy goes +1
And Jamie Delgado loses -4
to come in at 113
Quite a bad week for the doubles on the whole as all the big movement is on the downward scale.
David Sherwood manages to be the biggest mover in both singles and doubles this week with a -305
Richard Bloomfield and Martin Lee drop -28
respectively to world no. 365
And that's kind of the headlines. Following someone in particular you can check it out here, and you should really give it a look as there was a LOT of movement outside the big 4 this week:SinglesDoubles
Still waiting on that IW WC for Jamie and Booty...
Good luck to all for next week!
