This UCI player from Germany has forced me to learn about the German Tennis Federation rankings which is written in German.
- A German to English translation website was invaluable.
Rangliste = rankings
Damen = women
Datum = date
That's all I pretty much needed to know to find the current and past German rankings!
- Some interesting notes I found. Mucki is from the club TC Schoenberg, the same club as Hawaii's former #1 Ellen Linsenbolz.
- Mucki's Under 21 ranking was about the same as Nebraska's #5 singles Janine Weinreich. Weinreich defeated Long Beach St.'s Sarah Cantlay last season.
- Mucki's highest Under 21 ranking was better than the highest ranking of both Pacific's #3 singles Julia Hansen and #2 singles Christina Goehl. That's encouraging. Now it's more clear why UCI is taking a chance on her.
