Re: 2013 Individial Championship Tournament

Rankings are based on a fairly complicated formula that values best wins vs worse losses. The formula really gives a lot of clout to big wins. Cunha went undefeated in the dual season until losing to Novikov but stayed down at 9 because he did not have the amount of wins that others did. Like Bogaerts had several losses, like 5 or 6 but got higher than Cunha based on wins. I actually think the system is flawed in that way.

Rola is only that low because he did not play the fall events because he played futures. So he started the dual season in January unranked while other players had already accumulated a lot of points.

Re: 2013 Individial Championship Tournament

What is the probability of Jenkins winning the triple crown (team, singles, doubles)?

Re: 2013 Individial Championship Tournament

He has a shot. I'm surprised he and Styslinger have made it this far. Jarmere's brother who played for Clemson said that Jarmere actually doesn't like playing with Styslinger.


Fanselow beat Jenkins last year in the team semifinals so Jenkins has his hands full there.

Rola is the favorite to win this thing now. De Klerk is the Cinderella man this year after knocking off King.

Re: 2013 Individial Championship Tournament

Yeah, to me Rola, Cunha and King were ranked lower than I would have suspected.

Re: 2013 Individial Championship Tournament

I wish the US Open would give Rola a wildcard if he won. He isn't American but he did chose an American university to attend and is ranked 297 in the ATP.

Re: 2013 Individial Championship Tournament

They would only give it to an American?? I'm sorry but I think this is crazy, Blaz Rola has almost the ranking to play the qualies and still, just because he is from Slovenia, which has only Futures and maybe a Challenger here and there.

Re: 2013 Individial Championship Tournament

It'll be interesting to the strides Rola makes this summer in the pros.

Yeah. I was surprised to see he might even come back for his last year.
