    Liam,

    I was unofficially rated at 5.2 on the old scale by a LTA coach.

    For people state-side LTA 1.0 = USTA 7.0.

    I'm confused

    If LTA 1.0 = USTA 7.0, and you are a LTA 5.2....

    That means you are a USTA 36.4? I think I'm missing something here.

    :lol: yup, I am the supreme being in the tennis universe.

    Ace, The scale is numbered the other way. Basically Tim Henman is LTA 1.0, i.e. an ATP top 100 player(USTA 7.0 = top 100 pro?). In England we only have one LTA 1.0 player :shock:

    On the new LTA scale a 10.0 is a complete novice. The same as USTA 1.0?
    On the new scale My 5.2 translates to lower-medium club player. Probably 3.0-3.5 USTA.

    That would be LTA raitng 1.1 not 1.0. I will start from bottom to top.
    The worst you can be is 10.2 followed by 10.1, 9.2, 9.1, 8.2, 8.1, 7.2, 7.1, 6.2, 6.1, 5.2, 5.1, 4.2, 4.1, 3.2, 3.1, 2.2, 2.1, 1.2 , 1.1 That is the lta rating scale from bottom to top:).
