can of worms time.

is it worth considering different ratings for singles and doubles?

I have a national open singles ranking, but I'm rubbish at (high level) doubles, Cindy soundsl like an excellent doubles player but is a self confessed bunny on the singles court.

It is kind of like the Bryans vs Fed, both awesome, but they are almost different sports!

I guess my point is that an NTRP computer rating derived only from doubles has no meaning in terms of a singles tournament. Sure, a player MIGHT be equally good at both forms, but in reality few are.

just putting it out there.
