The idea of having separate ratings for singles vs doubles comes up periodically when ratings are discussed, and there is some merit to the idea as with today's technology, courts, and playing styles, somewhat different skill sets are required to do well at each. I've never heard the USTA mention that anything like this is in the works, so I don't think we should hold our breath that it will happen, but for those curious about it, I've updated my Estimated Dynamic NTRP Rating Reports to break out the summary stats by singles and doubles and also to show the singles and doubles match ratings in different colors in the chart. See the blog for more details, but here is an example. John Doe Current NTRP: 4.5C Estimated DNTRP: 4.29 Match Record: 19-8 Singles Record: 13-3 Doubles Record: 6-5 Sets Won-Lost: 43-20 Games Won-Lost: 281-191 Best Match Result: 4.82 on 3/18/13 Worst Match Result: 4.01 on 7/17/13 Highest Estimated DNTRP: 4.49 on 3/18/13 Lowest Estimated DNTRP: 4.26 on 7/17/13 Singles Average Match Rating: 4.4 Doubles Average Match Rating: 4.25 In this case, this player is noticeably higher rated when he plays singles than doubles. What do you think? And do you think there should be separate singles and doubles ratings?
