Epic victory there! Shocked to have knocked off the Ox and Drake in consecutive matches. I'll be demanding a higher appearance fee next year too.

Stoked to have made the quarters, decent end to a somewhat inconsistent and arguably forgettable season.

Played Smeltz. Clearly a class above the rest. The Ox still choking near big titles, I see.

Was worried about the Russians there for a moment...seem to have some good team spirit going.

Wins-Losses

Total Win Percentage (ATP & Challengers)


Hard (ATP)


Clay (ATP)


Grass (ATP)


On the other side, the worst record at all levels goes to India's Harpreet Gupte at 0-8 (0-4 ATP, 0-4 Challenger). Russia's Evgeny Volkoff, meanwhile, went 0-6 at ATP to be the worst there.

The hard courts were particularly tough for Switzerland's Pascal Schmidt who went 6-16, whilst recently retired Vladimir Gryzlov went 6-15. Rob Bowenburg, a more competent hard courter, didn't have the results to show for his hard work as he went 8-14. From the higher ranked players, CWLand's Jamee Hancianu went 9-11 and Jean-Alain Depuis 10-16.

On clay, Chinese Taipei's Tu Haifeng struggled at 2-8, whilst Chile's Jefferson Quezada lost all five of his matches on the softer stuff. It is quite something also that Radek Spidla finished the year at three; his record a paltry 6-5 on clay and equal to Darcy Cowan.

Haha, actually these are the July stats. I'll edit in the real ones, and you won't be as pleased. :p

EDIT: That more accurately represents the late season slide.

Season I - Movers & Losers


Movers

Sven Oxenstierna
We Ranked: NR; End Rank: 5
All we knew about Sven Oxenstierna at the start of the season was that he had been signed to a contract to live in new oil nation CWLand for an undisclosed amount. Since then, his rise has been rapid starting with a fourth round appearance at the Australian Open as a qualifier. Oxenstierna grew from strength-to-strength as the season progressed, and undoubtedly the high was making it through to the final of Roland Garros where he took Daniel Páez Blanco to four sets. If there was one weakness in his game it was his performances in the late stages of tournaments; he managed just one title for the year despite three finals performances. Even if his late season form didn't match the start of the year, the Swedish-born Ox was a real revelation for CWLand.

Illya Altman
WR:
23; ER: 9
The Ukrainian always had the potential to be a real threat on the circuit this year, but we didn't think he had enough weapons to compete with the world's best players. We were proved wrong as the softly-spoken East European quietly went about his business and more than once nearly became the first player to beat Blanco on clay. Whilst he didn't ever capture the 'big' title, he made a Grand Slam quarter final and claimed three titles to go close to New York.

Henry Charles
WR: 176; ER: 15
The Brit was one of our real ranking misfires as he came out of nowhere to at one stage be a top 10 quality player (peaking at No. 11). In the glimpses our reporters saw of him before this season, most criticisms were levelled at his fitness and power - two things that he improved out of sight this season. After being forced to qualify for an early tournament in Chennai and at Melbourne Park, Charles really hit the jackpot with an unseeded appearance in the final of the Monte Carlo Masters. He made one more final in Bangkok (which he lost) and struggled in Grand Slams, but his End of Year ranking gives him a great launchpad into Season II.

Other Winners:
Jefferson Drake (NR-11); Javier Villaneuva (349-55); Ion Andueza (253-40); Jason Bradley (182-35); Li Wang (89-32); Dwayne Murdoch (32-10).

Losers

Johan Ortiz
WR:
21; ER: 102
A supremely frustrating season for Ortiz started with a first round exit at Melbourne Park and spiralled from there. A supremely talented player, the only question marks we had over him came over his work ethic and ability to play outside of South America. Both of those came to the fore as he fell as low as No. 145 in the world back in July. Some good Challenger results brought him back inside the top 100, but he fell out again with a season-ending injury.

Danijel Micic
WR: 3; ER: 23
No. 23 doesn't seem like such a bad finish, but for a man of Micic's ability it is sorely disappointing. The most outspoken man on the tour had a season to forget; claiming two titles but largely struggling in the big fields. He peaked with a final in Shanghai and showed glimpses of his undoubted potential, but will look for a bigger start to season II to push to where he rightfully belongs. His Davis Cup performances were testament to his ability.

Václav Zeman
WR:
24; ER: 110
We called him a steady player with a booming serve, but he didn't fulfil the first part of the equation and the second part was at times brilliant but mostly awful. Zeman did not make it to the quarter finals of any ATP tournament, and was instead forced to rely on Challenger results to remain relevant. Finishing his year off with a second round exit in Lyon after being forced to qualify represents what a poor season he had.

Other Losers:
Bogdan Maurer (35-99); Fok Zhenyu (41-98); Li Ming-Wang (28-74); Carlos Machado (26-104); Maarten Berg (19-56); Hau Li-an (60-189).



And that ladies and gents is season I basically done. There's still a UAE exhibition and wildcard playoffs to do, but that'll be done as a kickoff for season II. If there's any of your stats you want to know, just ask and I'll have a look.

I would really like a subforum just so I can split this up more and to make signing up for tournaments easier to track, but if I'm not allowed to do that I'll just make a second thread in this forum. :)

Sub forum would be tops about now. Would certainly get the interest from some other members up too.

Excellent work, SBI. Definitely needs its own sub-forum (as I may have already said a couple of times ;) )

It will be a necessity if I'm going to be helping out in Season 2.

Fantastic effort SBI. Was definitely a well run and organised sim, that kept interest going. Will be looking to get my ranking into the low 20s for singles next season and obviously push for more titles in the double with Davis. Early season form will depend on whether I concentrate more on singles or doubles.

Stoked at making the finals there.

No shame in losing to Drake.

Happy with the ranking of 116.

Happy just to get a win in that tournament, as well as play some of the big names for a change...

Agree with the sentiments of everyone else, Super work SBI... +1 for the sub forum
