Andy Murray (GB), aged 17 and ranked 510. Won 2 futures titles on clay
and the semis of another, after losing half the year for knee surgery and recovery. Aiming to be in top 100 by May and top 50 by November. Few points to defend until June. Watch him!
Alex Bogdanovic (GB), aged 20 and ranked 196. Won 1 challenger, final and semi of another 2. Has beaten Gambill and Joachim this year - no mean feat. Has not played in 2 months - suspected injury. Few points to defend until June.
Josh Goodall (GB), aged 18 and ranked 363 (up to 325ish on Monday). Unranked until March, been challenger semifinalist, and finalist of 1 futures event. Could well make top 250 some time next year.
OLD GUY WORTH TAGGING: -
Jamie Delgado (GB), aged 27 and ranked 223. Risen over 300 places this year with 2 challenger semis. Few points to defend until June - could we see a resurgence (has been up to 121 in 2001)?
