    NTRP Bump - The hard numbers

    This is NOT the way the system works, but maybe you are discussing what SHOULD be (I can't tell). Remember that the system keeps track of players to the 100th of a point. So - anyone at a 4.01 level in the system is a 4.5. In theory - it wouldn't be highly unusual for a 3.99 to beat a...

    USTA Year End Ratings - When?

    USTA Year End Ratings - When?

    Sure looks like they've run the 'program' already - perhaps there is another 'posting' process? Good find!
