Or perhaps it is the match rating that is used for the first few matches as a rolling dynamic is established?
I suspect they use individual matches until a dolling dynamic is created ... but again who knows.
IF I were the USTA ... I would choose to use a combination of the two. In my world strikes could be generated for individual match results or for getting the rolling dynamic ratings staying above the threshold for multiple matches.
I don't think it is based on individual match results because so few players ever end up being DQ'd.
