    Another good show from the Wellington crew. A few more picked up their second MER while other riders continue to grab MERs with different horses, some are now up to three different horses. Quite the collection.
     
    Update: Didn't realize this was a 160cm course, everyone with 8 penalties or less get the MER.

    Speaking of Davis Cup requirements, this week was the first opportunity for athletes to fulfill the requirements. Looking at the current top 100, we have 28 singles and 40 doubles players obtaining at least two Davis Cups appearances with one being in 2023-2024. This seems pretty low, but you have to remember that are not competing this week due to getting a bye to the next round and are of course suspended from Davis Cup play. If we were to filter athletes from those nations out the numbers are 28/70 and 40/83.
     
    Here are the 10 highest ranked athletes which have not fulfilled the requirements (and are not from the nations listed above).
     
    Singles
    1. Novak Djokovic
    4. Casper Ruud
    8. Taylor Fritz
    9. Holger Rune
    10. Hubert Hurkacz
    15. Frances Tiafoe
    21. Marin Cilic
    26. Sebastian Korda
    28. Diego Schwartzman
    29. Grigor Dimitrov
     
    Doubles
    5. Jean-Julien Rojer
    7. Mate Pavic
    9. Austin Krajicek
    11. Ivan Dodig
    12. Lloyd Glasspool
    13. Horacio Zeballos
    18. John Isner
    21. Andreas Mies
    25. Santiago Gonzalez
    26. Kevin Krawietz
     
    There's still plenty of time for the top athletes to fulfill their Davis Cup requirements, but I suspect some will take the exception route.

    I thought we'd get more riders with two MERs, but apparently almost everyone used a different horse relative to last week. We'll probably get some next week.

    We have our first athlete/horse combo with a complete MER in jumping. Just to let everyone know once an athlete/horse combo has fulfilled the MER requirements I will stop mentioning them. Perhaps in the future I will share a link with everyone who has completed the MER requirements. As a reminder, for the Nations Cup only, an athlete can get the MER is either the first or second round. Also as this (and the Grand Prix event from earlier) were 1.60m events the MER is 8 faults or less as oppose to 4 faults or less in 1.55m events.

    Decided to show the qualifiers from the Grand Prix event prior to the Nations Cup event. Some athletes have obtained their second MER result after getting one last week while other athletes decided to compete on a different horse. The Austrian pair will have an opportunity to be the first athlete to complete the MER at the Nations Cup tomorrow. Austria still needs to qualify a quota if it wants to compete at the Olympics.

    The first CDI-W event in Europe sees everyone that finished the Grand Prix grab an MER result. Looking at the calendar, I see there are seven weeks with events in Wellington from January to March. This make it a good place to farm ranking points without the stress of traveling and still have enough time to fly over to Europe (or stay and travel here). However, only Schopf (who's American-born) and Venezuela's Patricia Ferrando competed this week. Perhaps more will attend in two weeks.

    The exceptions are so vague that if a player really wanted to attend the Olympics they can easily get around the requirements. Worst case scenario you'd just need a doctor's note suggesting they should take rest for a mild sprain which coincidentally was on the same weeks as the cups.

    The Davis Cup/BJK Cup requirements (two appearance, at least one in 2023/2024) still apply, but all players can apply through the exceptions...
     
    1) Injury/Illness
    2) Newcomer clause (their ranking was too low to be realistically selected until recently)
    3) Strength of nation (their nation has too many top players)
    4) Historic participation at Davis/BJK Cup and/or Olympics
     
    The exceptions are pretty vague, but if you are a young player, an old player, from a nation with many players or just injury prone then you are probably safe.
     
    Basically if you are in your mid-20s to low-30s and from a nation with few top players and in good health you better get your Davis/BJK Cup appearances in.

    With two singles quotas per gender available to previous GS/gold medal winners I wanted to see who would be eligible. The priority goes to the athlete with the most Grand Slam and Olympic wins with the next tie breaker going to the higher ranked athlete. Athletes must be in the top 400 and not already qualified through the rankings.
     
    Here's where we stand after the 2023 Australian Open.
     
    Men
    Athlete GS/Olympic
    Wins
    World Ranking Rafael Nadal 23 6 Novak Djokovic 22 1 Andy Murray 5 64 Stan Wawrinka 3 135 Daniil Medvedev 1 12 Alexander Zverev 1 14 Marin Cilic 1 21 Dominic Thiem 1 99 Not too many options since Nadal, Djokovic and the now retired Federer won so many Grand Slams and most will probably qualify via rankings anyway. Murray is pretty safe should he drop in ranking and wants to go for a third Olympic gold. If he doesn't retire, I could see Wawrinka taking the quota. Thiem might be eligible, but he's been on the record at not caring about the Olympics.
     
    Women
    Athlete GS/Olympic
    Wins
    World Ranking Venus Williams 8 659 Naomi Osaka 4 65 Iga Swiatek 3 1 Angelique Kerber 3 106 Petra Kvitova 2 13 Simona Halep 2 15 Victoria Azarenka 2 16 Garbine Muguruza 2 82 Svetlana Kuznetsova 2 1292 Aryna Sabalenka 1 2 Belinda Bencic 1 9 Elena Rybakina 1 10 Jelena Ostapenko 1 12 Barbora Krejcikova 1 30 Sloane Stephens 1 39 Bianca Andresscu 1 42 Emma Raducanu 1 77 Sofia Kenin 1 207 I sometimes forget that Venus Williams has not yet retired. Regardless even if she breaks into the top 400 she won't compete at the Olympics due to the United States quite likely already qualifying four women. The same can be said for Russia (should they compete), Czechia and Spain. Given Osaka's decision on taking mental breaks she may still compete at the Olympics even if she decides to take an extended break. Kerber is currently taking a pregnancy leave, but is in a good position to take the quota if her comeback is a bit slow. I wouldn't be surprised if Raducanu ended up taking the quota when all is said and done.

    A large part of those 40 nations are those that disagree with their participation, but would still compete if BLR/RUS compete. The amount that would boycott is in the single digits (unless something drastically changes for the worst)

    He did say, that he wanted to play the 2024 Olympics, though. He loves Roland Garros and has been successful there.

    Not sure why a Danish rider is in Mexico, but he at least got the MER unlike the Argentine riders that competed.

    I thought we'd get more riders with two MERs, but apparently almost everyone used a different horse relative to last week. We'll probably get some next week.

    With two singles quotas per gender available to previous GS/gold medal winners I wanted to see who would be eligible. The priority goes to the athlete with the most Grand Slam and Olympic wins with the next tie breaker going to the higher ranked athlete. Athletes must be in the top 400 and not already qualified through the rankings.
     
    Here's where we stand after the 2023 Australian Open.
     
    Men
    Athlete GS/Olympic
    Wins
    World Ranking Rafael Nadal 23 6 Novak Djokovic 22 1 Andy Murray 5 64 Stan Wawrinka 3 135 Daniil Medvedev 1 12 Alexander Zverev 1 14 Marin Cilic 1 21 Dominic Thiem 1 99 Not too many options since Nadal, Djokovic and the now retired Federer won so many Grand Slams and most will probably qualify via rankings anyway. Murray is pretty safe should he drop in ranking and wants to go for a third Olympic gold. If he doesn't retire, I could see Wawrinka taking the quota. Thiem might be eligible, but he's been on the record at not caring about the Olympics.
     
    Women
    Athlete GS/Olympic
    Wins
    World Ranking Venus Williams 8 659 Naomi Osaka 4 65 Iga Swiatek 3 1 Angelique Kerber 3 106 Petra Kvitova 2 13 Simona Halep 2 15 Victoria Azarenka 2 16 Garbine Muguruza 2 82 Svetlana Kuznetsova 2 1292 Aryna Sabalenka 1 2 Belinda Bencic 1 9 Elena Rybakina 1 10 Jelena Ostapenko 1 12 Barbora Krejcikova 1 30 Sloane Stephens 1 39 Bianca Andresscu 1 42 Emma Raducanu 1 77 Sofia Kenin 1 207 I sometimes forget that Venus Williams has not yet retired. Regardless even if she breaks into the top 400 she won't compete at the Olympics due to the United States quite likely already qualifying four women. The same can be said for Russia (should they compete), Czechia and Spain. Given Osaka's decision on taking mental breaks she may still compete at the Olympics even if she decides to take an extended break. Kerber is currently taking a pregnancy leave, but is in a good position to take the quota if her comeback is a bit slow. I wouldn't be surprised if Raducanu ended up taking the quota when all is said and done.
