Weekly Records Report - 11/11/02

Matches Played
Uros Vico of Italy has moved up to third place on the list.  He has won the first two legs of the Italy #8 satellite and now has 94 matches on the year.  That gets him past an idle Guillermo Garcia-Lopez and an opportunity to move into second place next week.  The top American, Andres Pedroso, also moved up this week.  He has had some good runs in Mexico, reaching the quarterfinals in Mexico F15, the semifinals in Mexico F16, and last week the quarterfinals again in Mexico F17.  He now has 90 matches on the year along with Paradorn Srichaphan.  Fernando Verdasco of Spain moved up to #11 after reaching the semifinals in the Eckental challenger.

Winning Percentage
South African, Wesley Whitehouse has been tearing up the African circuit as of late.  He had only played in three tournaments on the year coming into Namibia F1 on October 21.  He dropped the first set in his opening match and never looked back, not losing another on his way to the title.  The next week in Botswana, it was much the same as Whitehouse took his second in a row.  Then last week in Zimbabwe, Whitehouse made it a hat trick with his third futures title in three weeks, pushing his 2003 record to 19-4, enough for 5th place on the percentage list.  Netherlands Antilles' Jean-Julien Rojer racked up another title last week in Jamaica F19.  It was his second title of the year and it brought him just outsite the top 10 at #11 with a 27-7 record.
