Mixed doubles

Has anyone figured out which are the likely top teams with direct entry in mixed doubles (assuming everyone eligible plays)? I just want to know how far Bhupati-Mirza will be from the cut-off...I think this pairing is better than Paes-Mirza.

Re: Mixed doubles

I think they do it with a combined ranking so Mirza/Bhupathi should easily qualify as only 1 team per NOC

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.

Re: Mixed doubles

Isnt it 2 teams per NOC?
Also, does anyone know whether they will take June 11th rankings for deciding the entry for mixed doubles, or the most recent rankings? And are singles and doubles rankings treated at par (Serena and Bryan will then have a combined ranking of 6+3=9)?

If the above is correct, then the 12 teams I get which have direct acceptance are:
myrni-azarenka
bryan-williams
bryan-huber/raymond
zimonic-jankovic
djokovic-ivanovic
matkowski/frystenberg-radwanska
bracciali-vinci/errani
nadal-martinez-sanchez (what was M-sanchez' ranking on June 11th?)
ferrer-llogestra vives
berdych-hradecka
stepanek-peshke
potro-dulko

petzner-kerber*
Bhupati-mirza*

Would anyone care to verify? And does anyone know if any of these players will not be playing mixed doubles?

Re: Mixed doubles

The ITF will select doubles teams for direct acceptance from mixed doubles entries comprising players accepted in the singles and/or men’s/women’s doubles events, received from National Associations no later than Tuesday 31 July 2012 at 11.00, taking into account the recognised international singles and doubles computer rankings of 11 June 2012. A maximum of two (2) women and two (2) men, two (2) mixed doubles teams, from any one country may compete in the mixed doubles event.

Four (4) ITF Places shall be selected for the mixed doubles event. Selection will be based on the recognised international computer rankings and geographical location.

For direct acceptance: Ranking as of 6/11/12 (p 10);
For Seeding: The selection of seeds for the Doubles events will be at the discretion of the ITF, however the latest available recognized international computer rankings shall be a primary, but not sole, basis for such selections. (p 16)

According to ITF communications, direct acceptances will be based on the combined world rankings of each pair, with each player using the better of their singles and doubles world ranking. E.g., if DTB will nominate Angelique Kerber/Philipp Petzschner, their combined ranking is 27 (9+18). Looking at the entry list you created, I am under the impression you have adjust it accordingly.

Re: Mixed doubles

Thanks!

I didnt have the June 11th WTA rankings, so I used the June 25th ones for my list. Kerber was 8th in that. So if Kerber/ Petzschner is 27, that puts them behind Bhupathi/Mirza

Do you know where the June 11th rankings are available?

Don't think Nadal and Djokovic will play mixed doubles. Sepanek will play with Kvitova and Zimonji/Ivanovic.

Re: Mixed doubles

The most likely Mixed Doubles field:

1) Azarenka - Mirnyi (BLR) --> Combined Rank 3 ---> Playing Wimbledon together hence likely to play Olympics
2) Bob Bryan - Huber (USA) ---> Rank 4 ---> Playing Wimbledon
3) Mike Bryan - Raymond (USA) ----> Rank 4 ----> Playing Wimbledon, USA may include Serena Williams as part of one of the pairs but they will most definitely field 2 pairs whatever the combination
4) Stephanek - Kvitova (CZE) ----> Rank 17 ----> Announced they will play ---> http://www.tennis.com/articles/templ...16491&zoneid=4
5) Paes - Mirza (Rank 19) or Bhupathi-Mirza (Rank 26) (IND)
6) Ivanovic - Zimonjic (SRB) ----> Rank 20 ---> Announced they will play ---> http://www.tennispanorama.com/archives/27401
7) Dulko - Del Potro (ARG) ---> Rank 23 ----> Announced they will play ---> http://www.ubitennis.com/english/spo...together.shtml
8) Vinci - Braccialli (ITA) ---> Rank 25 ---> Playing Wimbledon
9) Kerber - Petzchner (GER) ----> Rank 27 ----> Playing Wimbledon ----> Announced they want to play ----> https://twitter.com/svenja_sportch/s...17232002809857

Other likely entries
10) Radwanska - Frystenberg (POL) - Rank 12 - Sure to qualify but Radwanska may not play
11) Berdych - Hradecka (CZE) - Rank 20 - Sure to qualify but Berdych may not play
12) Llagostera Vives - Almagro (ESP) - Rank 27 - Pretty sure to qualify, Almagro can step in if Nadal and Ferrer don't want to play 3 events
13) Jankovic - Tipsarevic (SRB) - Rank 30 - Novak has indicated he may not play Mixed. Tipseravic may step in but unlikely
14) Tomic -Stosur (AUS) - Rank 32 - Announced that they may play - http://au.news.yahoo.com/thewest/spo...lympic-charge/
15) Lisicki - Kas (GER) - Rank 37 - Have not announced anything and may not qualify
16) Nicolescu - Tecau (ROU) - Rank 40 - Have not announced anything and may not qualify
17) Parra Santonja - Verdasco (ESP) - Rank 41 - May not qualify
18) Errani - Fognini (ITA) - Rank 45 - Playing Wimbledon but may not qualify for Olympics - Errani and Seppi have rank of 27 and are likely to qualify if they want to play
19) Shvedova - Kuluskin (KAZ) - Rank 57 - Playing Wimbledon but may not qualify for Olympics
20) Lindstedt - Arviddson (SWE) - Rank 58 - Playing Wimbledon but may not qualify for Olympics

Likely Wild Cards - Britain (hosts), Tunisia (only African team), Australia if they dont qualify directly (only Oceania team)

Re: Mixed doubles

My two cents:
  1. Victoria Azarenka/Max Mirnyi (BLR – 3 = 2+1)
  2. Liezel Huber/Bob Bryan (USA – 4 = 1+3)
  3. Lisa Raymond/Mike Bryan (USA – 4 = 1+3)
  4. Agnieszka Radwanska/Marcin Matkowski (POL – 11 = 3+8)
  5. Petra Kvitova/Radek Stepanek (CZE – 17= 4+13)
  6. Sania Mirza/Leander Paes (IND – 19 = 12+7)
  7. Ana Ivanovic/Nenad Zimonjic (SRB – 20 = 14+6)
  8. Lucie Hradecka/Tomas Berdych (CZE – 20 = 13+7)
  9. Gisela Dulko/Juan Martin Del Potro (ARG – 23 = 14+9)
  10. Roberta Vinci/Danielle Bracciali (ITA – 25 = 4+21)
  11. Angelique Kerber/Philipp Petzschner (GER – 27 = 9+18)
  12. Samantha Stosur/Bernard Tomic (AUS – 32 = 5+27)

It was announced already that Lindstedt-Arvidsson will play . If they don't get in, they will get an ITF Place(Wild Card)
