Losing to a lower ranked player would likely lower your ranking, unless you also beat a higher ranked player in the same tournament. If you are a 4 star junior and you lose to a blue chip senior in 3 tight sets, very likely your ranking would get a small boost. TRN uses a master ranking list for all players. They actually have people looking at the computer generated list every week and make some adjustment - I think this is when a good loss gets noticed.
