Yeah I think that it is hard to base a rating on one video, some of the feedback is really interesting, especially all the comments about us looking 40! But yeah looking at the averages it looks like I'm probably a 4.5 or maybe a 5.0, but my serve and weight of groundstroke has to improve
Yes I am based in the uk, my rating is 6.2 atm but should be going upto 6.1 in this ratings run. I have seen the conversion chart before its a pile of rubbish. My partner is a 6.1 but he plays better than that
Thanks for the post, I think this is really accurate. I think my return and serve are the reasons why I'm not a better player, when I get into a rally with a better player I feel relatively confident although I could hit heavier.
Thanks for the last two posts, yeah hopefully its the video that makes the pace look slow ha, my partner actually hits pretty hard. Consistency wise I missed a few too many returns and he actually won 4 and 4
here is a small part of the second set, footwork got slower as my fitness is really average, my partner kept drop shotting which was pretty effective, thanks again for the responses
Here is a few highlights of me and a friend hitting. What NTRP am I? (I am in the white shorts) and any technique tips for either of us?
Would be really grateful for any feedback
Ross K here is the list of the points - http://www.lta.org.uk/Global/Downloads/Competition%20Resources/Ratings-Rankings/Rankings-IndividualPoints.pdf
and asiank90 my name is george adey, im going up to 7.2 in this run.
You get 100 points for quarter finals. If your rating is 10.2 sorry but you have no chance. Even if your a good player because of your rating you will come up against a seed very quickly. If you look across some grade 3 results you normally see 5.2s - 6.2s winning grade 3 tournaments
