Unofficial Live Youth Rankings Poll

This thread has the purpose of preparing 3 new threads for Youth Live Rankings.

Well, I can add 3 more automatic exports along with the regular 5 pages of live ATP rankings and my very own Romanian Live Rankings image to be refreshed regularly. I was thinking to ask everyone what age groups would they like to see as Live Rankings.

The poll will run for 7 days.

Under 19.

Proud supporter of El Tio , the greatest genius alive!

Alchimists transform iron into gold. Boriiiiiing!
Movie-makers transform dreams into reality. Yeah, whatever...
El Tio transforms Dull into a multiple GS champion! Daaaaamn!

El Tio has the keys to weather, court speed, draw making, umpires' decisions and perception of time between points, top players' fatherhood, and my libido!

This signature is in no way ironic. Please don't ever let El Tio think that, for my sake!

Re: Unofficial Live Youth Rankings Poll

I myself like the drivers license/drinking divisions of U16, U18, U21.

Re: Unofficial Live Youth Rankings Poll

I like U16, U18 and U20 or 21. I want to see the youngsters coming through, going up to 24 is no longer a youngster to me.

Re: Unofficial Live Youth Rankings Poll

I assume that you mean their senior ATP ranking?

Not sure what the best divisions are, but this would be interesting.

Unlike the WTA, the ATP doesn't include DOB in its ranking list, so it can be hard to pinpoint the younger players who are doing well.

I'm not sure that there are enough U17s doing anything significant on the senior tour to make that worth a category in its own right, but if a U18 category was sortable by age as well as rank, it could be interesting.

This is about having this: Unofficial Live ATP Rankings [in Post #1] filtered as an image for age groups. One can already download the excel file from the link located in the OP there and do their own filters. This is for the lazy people that want to see the top youth players in the ATP rankings without bothering much.

Re: Unofficial Live Youth Rankings Poll

I think you should make clear in the original post what U stands for. Does U19 include 19 or not?

Re: Unofficial Live Youth Rankings Poll

Voted for U18/U19/U21/U24

But, since you only wish to make three lists, you do the three excluding U21, since that is available here

Again with that site. Don't you follow my live rankings? I have created an alternative to that site. live-rankings.eu is wrong way more times than my live rankings. So what they have live rankings of the U21, they also have live rankings of all the players, but since they include no futures, they're wrong most of the time.

In the specific case you posted, they aren't even saying what world ranking the U21 have.

Re: Unofficial Live Youth Rankings Poll

I would like U22 and U20 ... if that means until 22nd and 20th birthday.

That quite coincides with some "breaking years" from what I've observed.

If you make a third one, I would prefer under 24 or even 25 ... I mean there are many players improving in these ages,
and as the list is not about top-top players but rather looking at an extensive list of players, I would personally like it best.

To know which players approach the top-100 especially. The players who approach the very top everyone knows them anyway

Maybe that's even the list I would personally prefer, even though I understand that some may be shocked by that kind of youngsters' list.

I don't think it's useful to go in younger ages than 19 in current period.

useless old guy
