Nptr rating
 
My highest ranking in the twelves group was 27 in georgia. my ranking now in fourteen's is 173(I'll bring it up since I've only played seven tournaments). So what would my nptr rating be(guess).

They usually say I'm a 4.0-4.5 rated player, depending if I'm having a good or bad day. It's considered amazing for a 14 year old, so I hope I'll be joining some big tournaments in the future.

4.0-4.5 isnt amazing at all for a 14 year old

a 4.0 isn't very amazing at all for a 14 year old. Your just pretty good. What's your ranking?

region2champion 11-09-2008 11:31 AM

i just turned 13 and I'm a 4.5-5.0 (i've heard from adults) and I was only in the 40's of my section, Florida. My national ranking was only in the like 400-600s.

Bro, if you were a 5.0 you would be playing at a Division II college. No way in hell is a 13 year old a 5.0. And yes, a 4.0-4.5 is amazing for a 14 year old. Please, get your facts straight before posting

Hold on a sec here bud, your telling me you know 13-14 year olds who are 5.0? Tell me what does a 5.0 mean to you? Look at this thread http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showthread.php?t=131731. Tonlars is a 5.5 and playing DII college tennis. Your telling me a 13 year old can take games off him?

Enlighten me

Depends completely on how long you've been playing, so there really is no average. If this helps, its definitley not a 5.0 or even remotley close to that. Cut of age is 18, 18 and above you recieve NTRP ratings

region2champion 11-12-2008 06:25 PM

I know MANY 14 year olds who are 4.5-5.0.

Wow, are they playing college tennis? If what you say is true, they'll be pros by the time there 16. look at this thread http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showthread.php?t=131731

Tonlars is a 5.5 playing DII college tennis. You honestly think these measly 14 year olds can compete with an alleged DII college player?

Enlighten me

a 5.0 to me is "You have good shot anticipation and frequently have an outstanding shot or attribute around which a game may be structured. You can regularly hit winners or force errors off of short balls and can put away volleys. You can successfully execute lobs, drop shots, half volleys, overhead smashes, and have good depth and spin on most second serves."

I have a friend who's 16, and beats our adult friend who plays 5.0 singles and 5.5 doubles, but then again, he's a couple of years older. He doesn't play many tournaments though, because he's not into it, but played at tennis academies.

Just by that post you show how little you know about tennis. USTA website gives very VAGUE and General guide lines. These players here are true 5.5 and 6.0. Look at this vid and tell me that your 13 year old friends play even close to Santo in this vid, who is a 5.5.

also go back and watch tonlars play, hes a good example of a 5.5

TonLars 11-13-2008 07:06 AM

The confusion comes from the difference between: the NTRP ratings chart descriptions, and NTRP level league/tournament results. Since a good 14 year old probably could have all the shots and fairly sound technique, I can see where one could think a kid is a 4.5-5.0, because they cant place him any lower from the chart descriptions. But then adults or people who play leagues, base people's rating strictly on results or complete playing ability. They know that almost any 14 year old wont beat a decent 4.5 mens player, so you can see what theyre saying as well.

first of all we are talking about 4.5 KIDS, not adults, adults are much stronger and more developed, so a 4.5 adult would and should beat a 4.5 kid. But their skill level and technique would be about the same!! and stop posting vids and links of 5.5's and 6.0's, i was talking about how 4.0-4.5 isnt amazing for a 14 year old. and yeah theres no way a 4.0 cud beat a 5.5, so stop posting vids of 5.5 6.0 players!!!!!!
