New to the top 100 - 2017 [12] - Bublik enters

Time to kick this off. Kovalik looks closest to the entry point this year. Last year it was Nishioka (which eventually entered), but the first one to enter was Fritz.

New Top 100 in 2017:
1 - Nicolas Kicker - February 27th 2017

2 - Ernesto Escobedo - April 3rd 2017

3 - Marius Copil - May 15th 2017

4 - Norbert Gombos - May 15th 2017

5 - Tennys Sandgren - June 12th 2017

6 - Alessandro Giannessi - June 19th 2017

7 - Andrey Rublev - June 26th 2017

8 - Marton Fucsovics - July 17th 2017

9 - Henri Laaksonen - July 17th 2017

10 - Laslo Djere - July 24th 2017

11 - Denis Shapovalov - August 14th 2017

12 - Alexander Bublik - September 16th 2017

Another year for milestones! I wonder if the average age will be higher than last year. We had another record oldest Top 100 breakthrough last year so who knows. I wonder if prospects from last year will finally breakthrough here this year.

It's looking like Rublev might be the 1st, which is great.

The average age of the new top 100 was significantly lower last year than in the previous ones. But I am almost sure that it will be even lower this year. There are quite a few U21 with reasonable chances to make it (Rublev, Escobedo, Kozlov, Lee, Ymer, Halys, Bublik, Opelka, Rubin, maybe even Ruud or Tsitsipas) but not many above 25 (maybe Copil, Gombos, Giannessi, Ignatik?), in my opinion.

With Nicolas Kicker reaching the QF in Rio, he is currently at 100 in the live rankings. He could definitely be passed by a few players still active this week but he could be the first of 2017.

Kicker in the Top 100 would be quite something

Congrats to Kicker, happy for him, hopefully he can make some noise on the tour now, maybe he's not quite ready, but he should get there.

Re: New to the top 100 - 2017 [0]

Kicker is not yet confirmed as pjr428 mentions. Gombos can still theoretically pass him if he wins this match against Kyrgios (not likely), in which case, he'd be the one to enter Top 100.

One way or another, at least one player will enter Top 100 this week.

Re: New to the top 100 - 2017 [0]

Ruud would be another option. But even more unlikely.

TT Singles: W 2014: Heilbronn I; 2013: Marseille, Sarasota; 2012: Blois Fut QF 2012: USOpen

TT Singles ranking: 64 (High: 51)


TT Doubles: W 2017: Cincinnati, Washington, Acapulco (w/ supertom) 2016: Madrid, Meerbusch; 2015: Wimbledon, Gstaad, Moscow, Sarasota, Fergana; 2013: Winston-Salem, Sarajevo; 2012: Antalya, Tiburon; 2011: Izmir (w/ appleGirl); SF 2013, 2012: USOpen (w/ appleGirl);

TT Doubles ranking: 7 (High: 7)

Re: New to the top 100 - 2017 [0]

Yeah. Gombos fell to Kyrgios, so while he's still the favourite to be #2 the only way for Kicker to lose his #100 spot is if Ruud takes the Rio title.

As it stands, a RU for Casper would take him to #103 and the title to #67 so I dare say Kicker's got it safe.

Interestingly, the 3 closest men are sequentially ranked at #111 (Rublev), #112 (Gombos) and #113 (Escobedo), then #115 (Kozlov) and #118 (Kovalik, who for some reason is still managing to evade his berth)

Re: New to the top 100 - 2017 [1] - Kicker kicks it off

Well, congrats to Nicolas. Well deserved. Interesting that the first entrant this year is exactly 52 weeks after last year's first entrant.

Re: New to the top 100 - 2017 [1] - Kicker kicks it off

Congratulations to Kicker for making his improved form count and join the club! it's still the 3-digit spot though, let's see if he can get one better.

Let's make the round for this week's contestants.

Escobedo and Kozlov need QFs at Acapulco, and that wouldn't still be totally safe.
Same with the eternal Kovalik and a SF at São Paulo, a F would make the trick.
Copil has very fringe chances with a QF at Dubai.
Giannessi needs a F at São Paulo.
Ruud also needs to be São Paulo's finalist. So close from being within touch with that MP against Carreño!
...and Safwat needs to be a finalist at Dubai and I can't really say the odds are favourable there.
