    Default Great Britain's race to London 2012 Olympics

    We are nearly half way through the years Olympic qualification period so I have only chose the best 5 results thus far to give a more accurate picture of how it is going.
    (inclusive of french open)

    MENS SINGLES (only one gent will qualify as zero chance of both getting into top 16)

    1.RAJIV OUSEPH 17082.1617

    2.SCOTT EVANS 10970 (outside qualy rankings at the moment)



    WOMENS SINGLES (only one lady will qualify as zero chance of both getting into top 16)

    1.SUSAN EGELSTAFF 14000

    2.ELIZABETH CANN 13631


    Mixed doubles (Only one pair will qualify due to very small chance 2 pairs being top 8)

    1.Bankier/adcock 26760


    2.Robertson/wallwork 21922.23


    3.Blair/White 17560


    WOMANS DOUBLES DOUBT IT.

    MENS DOUBLES ADCOCK AND ELLIS MIGHT SLIP IN THE BACK DOOR WITH COUPLE OF REALLY GOOD RESULTS.

    Will update it when appropriate.

    Scott Evans is from Ireland, so he could qualify on his own.

    Can you put the current world ranking in as well? It save some misinterpretation.

    The last couple of super series events have been less than spectacular for 'team GB'

    Robertson and Wallwork's results have been very disappointing since the World Championships in August. I was under the impression that Robertson was trying to extend his career so he could play in the Olympics in 2012, I don't think he'll qualify by right and does he really deserve a wildcard?

    I would rather imogen or blair and their respective partners qualified so there is some scottish representation but robertson is only a couple of good tournament results away from taking the lead if the others had a bad tournament so not that unrealistic. What do you mean by wildcard? GB has over a minumum of 2 players qualifying (likely) so will not get any wilcard, correct me if i am wrong.

    Under no circumstances whatsoever should Elisabeth Cann be sent to the Olympics next year...

    True, if Blair loses in:

    1st match 6050 - result replacing 2660 = 3390 + existing best 7 22950 = total 26340
    semi 7700 new total = 27990
    runner up 9350 = 29640
    winner 11000 = 31290


    So even if they win Blair and White will still be behind imogen/adcock after the, 7 best tourneys so far stat. If they are runner up they will over take robertson and wall.

    my guess is the 2nd ranked MX pair will get the free places offered to the host nation.

    Ha! agreed, if a bit harsh. The "GB setup" does not agree with you though please read article link below:

    Yes, having read the article it's clear who they favour (it always has been clear who they favour-cause they're English)

    But surely they have to reconsider this stance after this: http://www.tournamentsoftware.com/sp...91FD&player=31

    And they want Cann to go to the olympics, what a joke if it was to happen after some of the results she gets...
