Can I create a topic?
This one should go for the best and worst players in Challengers in 2009.
Would be good to have some help.

May I start with:

Best:

Blaz Kavcic- W: Alessandria, Constanta F: San Remo, Rijeka. Rose from 286# to 132# (10/08).
Horacio Zeballos- W:Campos do Jordao, Manta, Bucaramanga, Bogota F: Pereira, Bogota-2. Rose from 196# to 82# (10/08).
Michael Russell- W:Savannah, Carson-2. F: Salinas. Rose from 257# to 117# (10/08).

Worst:

Jesse Huta Galung- W:Caltanisseta. 6 DEFEATS in a row. Fell from 176# to 238# (10/08).
George Bastl- 2009 CH record: 4-9 (qualy:3-3). Fell from 234# to 277#.

Best:

Benni Becker - W:Cremona,Rhodes,Baton Rouge,Heilbronn. F:Ramat Hasharon. from #135 to #48

Flo Mayer - W:Karlsruhe,Bangkok. F: Noumea,Sofia. + 4 semis. from #409 to #129

Jan Hajek - W:Prostejov,Ostrava(both out of q). F:Bytom. from #474 to #154

Worst:

Olivier Patience - 2-9 on CH tour. from #140 to #179

Tomas Tenconi - 7-16 on ch tour. from #159 to #157 :lol:

both didn't lose too many positions in the rankings but have really bad results for players around #150 and former decent ch players

worst doesn't make much sense imo

best challenger player this year seems to be between Becker and Zeballos right now

Luczak's had a decent season as well

Well not exactly worst but let´s say disapointments.
Until the end of year we could make a top 10 in best performances and disapointments. :)

I have actually been compiling statistics, including win/loss-ratio.

When filtering out those players who played ten or fewer matches, these are the top ten. The number in between the first set of brackets indicates the number of titles they won. Please note that only matches in the main draws are counted.


Top 10 W/L-Ratio:

1. Becker, Benjamin (4) / 87.10% (27/31)
2. Demoliner, Marcelo (1) / 81.82% (9/11)
2. Vik, Robin (1) / 81.82% (9/11)
4. Vliegen, Kristof (2) / 81.25% (13/16)
5. Gonzalez, Maximo (2) / 80.00% (16/20)
6. Beck, Andreas (1) / 78.95% (15/19)
7. Dolgopolov Jr., Oleksandr (1) / 78.57% (11/14)
8. Zeballos, Horacio (4) / 77.08% (37/48)
9. Minar, Ivo (2) / 76.19% (16/21)
9. Starace, Potito (1) / 76.19% (16/21)

And then the same for the worst win/loss-ratio, again only for players with n > 10 matches.


Bottom 10 W/L-Ratios:

1. Miele, André / 13.33% (2/15)
2. Petrazzuolo, Giancarlo / 18.75% (3/16)
3. Amado, Juan-Pablo / 20.00% (3/15)
4. Ghedin, Riccardo / 23.53% (4/17)
5. Sirianni, Joseph / 25.00% (4/16)
6. Silva, Daniel / 25.00% (3/12)
7. Nuńez, Eric / 27.27% (3/11)
8. Moraru, Gabriel / 27.27% (3/11)
9. Pospisil, Jaroslav / 28.57% (4/14)
10. Widom, Todd / 29.41% (5/17)
10. Naso, Gianluca / 29.41% (5/17)


Interestingly enough, Pavel Snobel, Tomas Tenconi and Kristian Pless (all of whom have n > 20) are not far removed from these bottom ten.

Don't know how you got Patience on 2/11, unless you included this week's results.

BEST

Peter Luczak- W: Furth, Poznan | F: Tampere | SF: Burnie, Meknes, Lugano (from #167-#98)
Marcos Daniel- W: Marrakech, Zagreb, Bogota-2 (ATP QF-Belgrade, SF- Gstaad) (from #102-#57)

WORST

Vince Spadea- 5-8, best result was a semi-final out of 8 events. (#88-#134)Tough year for Vinnay:(
Aisam-Ul-Haq Qureshi- 4-8 in 8 events. Best result was a QF. Never made it through qualies when he didn;t get a D.E. (#302-#458)

Hehe Qureshi never qualified :lol:
Stats are great, thanks Martjn.
Some players like Russell doesn´t have top 20 stats but they surely won good strategic positions.
Maybe at the end of year a requirement of 15 or 20 matches would make a good filter.

Yes, will have to think about what the best filter is. Somehow the filter will also have to be different for the top and bottom ten; obviously it is 'easier' to get to 20 matches by winning a lot, yet if you keep losing in 1R and 2Rs, then twenty matches are a loooot of tournaments.
