My friend/coach got a scholarship to Oxford University and played in the Prentice Cup in 2006 at Wimbledon, the one with 3 oxford players and 3 cambridge players play a combination of Harvard/Yale. He said he had an LTA rating of 2.1 and I was just wondering what this rating would be in the US system?? Thanks.

found this-

There are 20 rating bands. A rating of 1.1 is the highest level and 10.2 is the lowest.
The ratings scale goes (from the lowest): 10.2, 10.1, 9.2, 9.1, 8.2, 8.1 and so on until 1.2 and finally 1.1. Junior beginners will start with a rating of 10.2 and adult beginners will start with a 9.2.

yep, just wondering what that would be in the US rating system though.....I am not familiar with either as I am not from Great Britain or the States, am from Ireland. All I know is that he was a 2.1 when he was in England.

I think its 1.2= 7.0
2.2 = 6.5
3.2 = 6.0
4.2 = 5.5
5.2 = 5.0
6.2 = 4.5
7.2 = 4.0
8.2 = 3.5
9.2 = 3.0
(.2 includes /.1 at the end just easyer to type it this way)

Yes, technically a 2.1 is equal to a strong 6.5.

However, I think it's probably a little easier to get to the 2.1 level than 6.5 (not that a 6.5 in the US system means the same practically as a 2.1 in the Uk) - i.e. plenty of 2.1's won't be competitive at futures level, but I would expect a 6.5 to be so.

Ah I doubt he's a 6.5 to be honest....he's lost 3 and 3 to and Irish guy who had a career high ranking of 1,400ish in singles last year and he's beaten him in doubles and he has a current ranking of 1,140. He's undefeated though in singles league matches to a guy who has a current ranking of 549 in doubles(career high 533) and who has a current ranking of 830 in singles....he also beat him him in January in the league in doubles but the guy he was playing with was weak a class 3 player and they were playing class 2, the two clubs actually met again in the final and got promoted to class 1, the highest class. I'd say he's a 5.5 really, no? He's never tried playing a futures tournament before.

A very strong 5.5, maybe a weak 6.0 depending how he gets on with the big boys.

Certainly a very good player.

I know a 2.1 guy, who also played a couple of futures events, and was one of the best University players in europe. definitely very close to 7.0 as he was playing guys ranked 200-300 and doing quite well.
