    USTA mixed leagues

    The issue op describes in the last post may have more to with the large disparate in men’s and women’s ntrp ratings than captains. If usta wants mixed leagues to grow they should address that.

    Interesting. "Which matches do and don’t count toward a player’s rating? All USTA Leagues (i.e., 18 & Over, 40 & Over, 55 & Over, 65 & over, Mixed) are included in the Year-End Rating calculation. Mixed Doubles divisions will only have an effect on the ratings of players who played...

    I thought if you played 3 rated mixed matches you would get a mixed rating. (assuming you do not play enough matches to get a c rating)

    I agree. But would add it is not all illegitimate tactics though. Those areas where the weather is nice for tennis year round will naturally have more players per mile. That means they will have an easier time filling their teams with players that are at the very top of the rating level...

    I am not sure how to interpret what they are saying - other than they are clearly trying to communicate - oh no we didn't screw up by not rating after 2020. Here is what they said: "The 2021 year end algorithm ran as it typically does in any given year. The difference was a longer date range...

    I think the most important sections would be the sections with the most players. The exception might be 3.0 players since they are rapidly advancing - so I would say for men the 3.5 18+ and 4.0 18+ sections would be the most important. Plus I think it is important to focus on teams with c...

    Is this UTR to NTRP conversion chart accurate?

    I think that chart makes sense and shows how wide the levels are in men’s ntrp. Utr won’t even rate a match between opponents with more than 2 rating points difference - unless the weaker player actually wins the match. I think that makes it so the better player doesn’t feel like they have...

    Chael was that you saying "come oahhn!" at this point in the match?

    Is this UTR to NTRP conversion chart accurate?

    Do you mean what "Tennis record" has their dynamic rating? I didn't think tennislink shows your dynamic rating. I agree this would be interesting.

    Is this UTR to NTRP conversion chart accurate?

    If a few of you have newer ratings then it will bounce around for a while - maybe longer.

    I just played the match and lost 6-1 7-6. The first set was not as much of a blow out as it appeared (I got to 40 in about 5 of the 6 wins he won) but the second set was not as close as it appeared either as I felt like I was on the defense most of the time. If I had to guess I would say...

    I self rated 3.0 and played five mixed doubles matches. In 4 of the matches my partner was also a self rate with only 5 matches. In the one match I played with a partner that had more rated match experience we played against a self rate that will only have two mixed doubles matches in before...

    Is this UTR to NTRP conversion chart accurate?

    Men’s ntrp is different then women’s ntrp. I am saying the utr conversion in Ian’s chart fits women’s ntrp in my area. It does not fit for the men’s ntrp in my area. Edit: according to that chart a UTR 4.5 can be a male ntrp 3.0 a 3.5 or a 4.0.

    Is this UTR to NTRP conversion chart accurate?

    Interesting. UTR shows which matches boosted and lowered your rating and by how much in a graph. Are you saying this match point is below your rating? Also if one of the people you partnered with in the past had a big win that may have lowered your rating. I'm not sure how many matches...
