What NTRP level would you say each of these two players are?
 
Just wondering how the TT NTRP radar is calibrated these days....

5.0 or higher

marosmith 02-01-2013 02:54 PM

Total guess but maybe 4.5/ mid 5.0?

user92626 02-01-2013 02:57 PM

I think the level correlates with the number of consecutive shots they could make in a point. So in this case, 3.0.

luvforty 02-01-2013 03:08 PM

grey shirt 5.0

blue shirt 4.5, falling backwards on the serve, and that FH, ugh!

mikeler 02-01-2013 03:08 PM

Only saw a few points but probably 5.0. Could be higher. Both guys are very fit.

The average number of shots per point in the ATP is less than 3.

Probably about 5.0 or 5.5 in the US. ITN ratings don't transfer very well in real life.

TimothyO 02-01-2013 04:49 PM

No higher than 4.5 (US). Way too many wildly unforced errors to be any higher than that. They lack the patience and discipline to develop the point and the skill to recognize a true opportunity ball. The kids that I watched last weekend at a USTA nationals tourney could easily beat them. The strokes certainly look impressive on the surface (oh, look how hard they hit!) but they're just not consistent enough to be higher than 4.5 (there goes another easy shot long or into the net).

Darn. I guess Sampras is a 2.0.

:confused:

I am surprise you guys rate them at 5.0. I am no expert but would guess they are 4.0-4.5.

jonnyboi09 02-01-2013 07:28 PM

My guess would be Higher end 4.5. Serve and a few wild errors make me think 5.0 would be a stretch. Very entertaining nonetheless.

Hollandtennis 02-01-2013 08:46 PM

Paul Barton is a 5.5

this but 4.5. They do spray a lot of balls

Chemist 02-01-2013 09:21 PM

They are among better 4.5 players in my opinion. If they improve their consistency, they would do ok in a 5.0 league.

Venetian 02-01-2013 11:26 PM

Looks like 5.0 or above to me.

- How bout these 2 guys - how do you think they'd rate?

Fugazi 02-01-2013 11:55 PM

Guy in grey is 5.0, guy in turquoise is strong 4.5 or 5.0.

D-money 02-02-2013 01:08 AM

This doesn't look like the 5.0 tennis in my area but they are really good. They are really attacking each-others serves I like it. They could self rate at 4.0 get bumped up at the end of one season and be competitive at 4.5
