    What NTRP are Juniors playing on the ITF Junior tour. What rating would the Top 100 be and then say 400-800.

    Just curious.

    Wouldn't that be dependent on WHO actually we're talking about?
    Some top Boy's 18's can be 5.5 level players.
    Some top Boy's 18's can barely beat a tough 4.0 (who is experienced).
    I just hit with HarvardUniversity's this coming year #2 singles.
    I'd say he was 6.0 or better.
    He was top 10 National 18's last year, but has grown and practiced tons since.
    He's also beaten the #1 at least twice without a loss, but he's a full scholarship freshman, and the #1 is a senior.
    It's embarrasing to get old.

    I'm not talking about american nationals. I'm talking about the Top 10 in the world aka Bernard Tomic, Grigor Dimitrov etc. All of their names are hard to say/spell.

    And then 400-800 would be:

    Fernando Archilia who's 800 in the world Juniors. And Ivan Conejero who's 400 in the world in the Juniors.

    Top 10 players are most likely 6.0+
