    I would like to see some of the 5.0+ players post some videos of them hitting.

    I'm an elite 3.5. There are very few of us. The USTA assigns two bodyguards for 24/7 protection.

    I don't think I can reach the super hero level of 4.0 and become a national treasure

    I'd guess 3.5, maybe 3.0 based on Youtube videos.

    I think I am closer to a true socal 4.5 now :)
    But I am maybe only a TW forum 3.5 if I posted videos here for review.

    I don't think our resident "experts" would approve of your continental gripped forehand.

    I'd rate myself as 3.5 for social purposes. For league purposes 3.0. I find that if you call yourself a 3.0 you will beat the few people you play who are all rank beginners. <g> No one rates themselves socially under 3.5 - ever.

    I've just voted myself 3.5.
    30 years ago, went 4 and 5 rounds in Pro Q's, could beat most A players, hang with almost any Div11 top singles player.
    Now old and decrepit, and haven't hit a ball in 5 months.

    4.5 for sure. Just played a 5.0 and knew exactly what to do, and was able to win every point when executing my plan.... but was far too out of shape to do so very often, let alone enough to win.

    Computer rated 3.5 with a winning record at 4.0. But early start ratings come out on Monday, so I'll update. I (and everyone else as well) am expecting a bump to 4.0.

    first of all, nice job getting the bump!

    anyway, it interesting what you said about your partner, but completely consistent with the USTA's administration of NTRP ratings. i recently read the following when looking into what early start ratings meant (it's from this link NTRP FAQ):

    thus, if you always play with the same partner, this means you will always maintain the same relative dynamic NTRP difference, which in turn means you will always get bumped together, whether UP or DOWN.

    just thought this was interesting when i read it, and thought i should comment b/c i don't think many players know this (it was at least new to me) ... esp, since it has implications (both good and bad) that affects players dynamic NTRP.

    I knew that that was the case, but it was still a little surprising, since only a few of our matches were won with true authority.

    That being said, he had heart surgery a few years ago, so he has a legitimate medical appeal. :)

    wait ... now that i think about it. my post was way off. in part of what i said i was confusing dynamic rating with year-end rating. most of what i said about dynamic ratings was correct ... but my conclusion about getting bumped up and down together was wrong. nevertheless, it's an interesting "rule" that i didn't know about.

    so ... if it is true that you didn't win matches with authority, it just means that your dynamic rating at the season start was close to the 4.0 threshold and his dynamic was close to the 4.5 threshold and you earned enough for your bumps.

    I think an interesting followup would be: What is your current rating now and where do you hope to be within a year?

    I'm not surprised that most serious players are around 4.0. At that level, there are still some pushers who rely on their superior fitness and then there are some people with very good strokes who lack consistency and have poor mental game. 4.0s aren't really good players but they don't stink either.

    He might be referring to his ranking in TopSpin 3 computer game.

    Well...it seems that my partner's medical appeal is likely to be denied, and his dynamic rating appeal was denied. Looks like I'll be a 4.0 playing 4.5 instead of a 3.5 playing 4.0 soon. :-|

    At heart, I'm a 6.0 to 7.0. But really a........3.0 or 3.5 or 4.0, depends on whom I play or how I'm playing that day.

    I think if i was self-evaluating myself i would fall under the 4.5 NTRP category. From what coaches say and the adults i play sometimes (im a junior) and the club tournaments i play I would be more of a mid-range 4.0 player. but if i posted a video of myself I would be probably rated as a 2.5 - 3.0 from all the understanding TT members.

    3.5 but played 4.0 doubles last year...with a one-eyed guy. We lost every match.
    Won half of my 3.5 singles matches.

    I put 3.0 because I haven't seen any leagues lower than that. After seeing that video of him hit with TonLars -- if Slapshot is ~4.0, then I'm like a 1.5

    Tony makes me look like a much better player than I am, courtesy of his pace. I don't have to generate any of my own. ;)

    For Official ratings: Initially you self rate. Then you play matches against computer rated players and you get moved up or down accordingly. At the end of the year USTA will publish a year end rating of you.
