Re: irish tennis

Not quite - ITF U18 rankings count your 6 best singles and 6 best doubles results (although doubles don't count for as much). All 6 of John's best results at the moment are worth 30 points, so when he gets this 80 (or possibly more! ) it will bump off one of those 30 point results. So, he'll end up with an extra 50 points, which will bump him up to around 80-85 in the rankings.

Here's John's ranking breakdown right now

Re: irish tennis

IRL MORRISSEY, John d. 11-ITA MOLINA, Emanuele 63 60

This puts him to up to 70th in the rankings, which is pretty much guaranteed MD acceptance into the Junior Slams!!

Unfortunately, the number two seed who took out Sam will be his opponent, but who knows what could happen?

Re: irish tennis

He certainly did John and Sam are both on the entry list for another Grade 1 next week, in Malaysia. The field is very similar to the one in Thailand, so here's hoping for another great week

Re: irish tennis

Yeah definatly, Mills should be easy enough to defeat if they meet.

But Im worried about Kelly at the moment.
