NTRP Rating Question
leagueCO -- I have some questions
I am in Colorado where everything seems to count -- all of my league participation matches (USTA leagues and CTA leagues) and all of my sanctioned tournament matches. Looking at my record for 2012 so far this year, I believe I am really close to moving up from 3.0 to 3.5. I wondered how much the Benchmark matches figure in to this and how USTA looks at a player who wins over 3.5 benchmark players (sometimes) but loses to 3.0 benchmark players (sometimes). Is it the same kind of math that is applied to any other match, just with maybe a multiplier of 2 or something?
I want to do everything I can in the little time that is left to make sure I move up. I basically have decided that playing against 3.0 players whether I win or lose is a lot riskier for me than playing 3.5 -- especially if I am pretty sure I can post a competitive score at 3.5.
