    Do Grand Prix Points or rankings have any effect on your year end NTRP? even a little since it shows you are playing tournaments. asking because I'm playing up a level trying to get bumped up.

    Are you talking about local USTA "master's cup" tournaments that are usually held in October? I don't think the points matter, but I think your individual tournament results matter.

    I would think that winning a tournament counts for a lot toward your NTRP. But someone else with more experience would have to chime in on that.

    I am no NTRP guru, but I think varies by section. Here in NorCal I am pretty sure tournaments don't count for NTRP rating.

    That's not true. I know a couple of players who have a T (tournament exclusive) rating, because tournaments are all they play.
