Eastbourne sets a new record for best competition of a non-GS tournament when 65 of the 79 players were ranked top100 at the start;
this is worth a 71.5 % value and is 4 percentage points more than the previous record holder, Dallas 1972.




Wimbledon

Forest Hills

Can you believe this? This year it has the better competition than Wimbledon!
78 of the 96 players were ranked top100 the week before its start, what is worth a value of 92.4 %.
It is 6 percentage-points more than Wimbledon this year and only 1.4 %-points behind the best ever tournament: Wimbledon 1972.
