    Here are somethings I wish the USTA would do

    Make the rating process more transparent by letting us see the dynamic rating. I think this might encourage more people to sandbag but they could have a system where they have incentives for players to move up. Imagine a regional/national ranking system. Maybe trophies I wouldn't mind having some of those.

    Let me know who I'm gonna play a week in advance so maybe I can prepare for him/her. Maybe have a social network where people can post comment (positive) about the strength and weakness of players.

    Encourage people to play singles more.

    What changes would you like in the USTA ?

    Sorry, this is a horrible idea. If people knew their exact dynamic as well as the dynamic of their opponent, it leaves the system way too open for manipulation. It would be a nightmare.

    Don't know how this is possible when most captains struggle to even set a lineup a week in advance!

    With you on that one :)

    Add a singles flex league across all sections and have it count towards your rating. At least one a year.

    We have the singles flex league in SC and it is great. Last year it was just you. This year it was a team of at least three and included a state tourney.

    I agree with Flex League ratings counting as well. I know now, each level is very wide, but it could narrow with rating (of course except self-raters, who usually go low).
