Andrew Bettles
Year Born: 1993
ATP Ranking: 2007 (CH = 917)
LTA Ranking: 146
ITF Ranking: N/A (CH = 157)

Having taken up a role as stand-in coach for one Ana Ivanovic for the back end of 2015 (at the meagre age of 23, no less), Bettles earned his last ranking point for the year in the Wirral in March by beating Josh Milton, indicating the potential to succeed as a player is there. Before turning coach, he was a student at Boise State in the States.

Piers Farhang
Year Born: 1997
ATP Ranking: 2007 (CH = 1870)
LTA Ranking: 108
ITF Ranking: N/A (CH = 401)

A mixture of British Tour and ITF Futures followed Farhang on his first senior year on the tour. He made it through two out of five Futures qualifying draws (and secured one DA) and picked up the one MD win in Egypt in August. Closer to home, his efforts secured him a place in the MD of the British Tour Masters in December 2015, his yearly highlight coming after reaching a Tier 2 final in Bath back in January (l. to James Davis).

Ravi Patel
Year Born: 1993
ATP Ranking: 2007 (CH = 1877)
LTA Ranking: 738
ITF Ranking: N/A (CH = 1618)

Ravi Patel graduated from Drake University in May 2015 and returned to where he began his studies, the University of North Florida, as a volunteer coach in August 2015. Hence, his main ITF Futures events in 2015 were in the States (and more specifically, in and around Florida.) He picked up his sole rankings point in Pensacola, FL, and also has a Tier 2 British Tour semi-final appearance from June to his name.

Dylan Gee
Year Born: 1995
ATP Ranking: 2007 (CH = 2005)
LTA Ranking: N/A
ITF Ranking: N/A

Completing only two years at college at Jacksonville State on a tennis scholarship, Gee has returned to the UK to coach at Bounds Green Bowls and Tennis Club. In November he travelled to Tunisia for the F30-F33 Futures tournaments, qualifying once and gaining two wildcards and winning one R1 match, picking up his first ever ATP rankings point in the process.

Sizya Ernest Kivanda
Year Born: 1991
ATP Ranking: 2090 (CH = 1880)
LTA Ranking: 70
ITF Ranking: N/A (CH = 993)

Since 2009, Kivanda has won just one ITF Futures main draw match in 13 – and that happened in July 2015 in Dublin. That’s not for want of trying: he entered a total of 17 Futures events but qualified for just 4 in 2015. He’s had slightly more success on a national level, reaching the final of the Tier 2 event in Warwick in March (l. to Jhun) and a clutch of SFs, QFs and R16 appearance that give him a fairly lofty LTA ranking.

Marshall Tutu
Year Born: 1992
ATP Ranking: 2229 (CH = 1077)
LTA Ranking: 483
ITF Ranking: N/A

Five years on the senior tour has seen a measure of progress for Tutu, after he endured two years (in 2011 & 2012) without a tour win in 17 attempts. He signed up for the East London Tennis Campus and took a year out from the Futures circuit, before returning and recording a much healthier 6-7 win-loss record and reaching his career high. A slightly less successful 2015 saw him collect his two ranking points in Britain and Egypt.

Oliver Hudson
Year Born: 1993
ATP Ranking: 2251 (CH = 986)
LTA Ranking: 59
ITF Ranking: N/A (CH = 993)

A hugely prolific player, Hudson entered 15 ITF Futures events in 2015, qualifying for 9, and winning just the one match in Tipton in November (d. Bothwell [IRL]). He also performed very well on the AEGON British Tour, consistently reaching quarters- and semi-finals in Tier 1 and Tier 2 events, the highlight arguably coming in Bournemouth in April where he beat Evan Hoyt en route to the semi-finals.
