Weekly Records Report - 10/27/03

Matches Played
No change at the very top; Miguel Angel Lopez-Jaen took another first round loss, but Bartolome Salva is playing at the Spain #4 satellite and qualified and reached the second round in leg 2.  So he plays 6 matches and rises to 4th place, making it a four-way Spanish block at the top.  Javier Garcia-Sintes reached the finals in that event and is now at #11.  Rainer Schuettler remains the top ATP level player, reaching the semifinals at St. Petersburg and has a rare shot at the century mark for an ATP player.

Winning Percentage
Young-Joon Kim returned to action and picked up where he left off with another title and extends his win streak to 12 with a win in Sri Lanka F1.  Kim dropped only 2 games in his first two matches and took his second futures title of the year along with a challenger title in Busan.  His record is now an amazing 20-2 and he is in action in Sri Lanka F2 this week and has already posted a 6-0 6-0 win in the first round.  He now retakes first place.  Jimy Szymanski went in the opposite direction with not just one loss this past week, but two.  After dominant success at the futures level, Jimy went to the Torrance challenger and lost in qualifying only to get in as a lucky loser.  He then reached the second round and lost to Paul Goldstein.  So now Szymanski stands with a 38-6 record in second place.  Wesley Whitehouse reaches the top 10 with another title in Africa, this time at Nigeria F5.  It is now his fourth futures title to go along with three satellite titles from West Africa.
