Out of those juniors is there one in particular that you would say stands out as having the ability that is needed to make it into the top 100?

It would be a great step if we could begin to fill the top 200 with young British players. It offers a great stable basis off of which to work off..especially with the Davis Cup Team.

Shame bout Andy Kennaugh though. There was a fair amount of hype not so long ago that it was looking like he could make some giant strides up towards the business end of the rankings. However, as you say, he seems to have slipped away recently, it would be interesting to hear what anyone knows or thinks about this...
