    2019 Men's National Indoors

    It was actually closer then the scores would suggest. Axel had set points to even the match, he lost those and never won another game. If he did get it to the 3rd set they're was hope since I think Stanford would have won on court 2.anyway does not matter much, the winner faces Ohio and no one...

    2019 Men's National Indoors

    The great thing about hosting at that club is that you can sit essentially next to player's bench. And the acoustics are such that hits are like cannon shots. They may be just a tad above 4.5 ttw player. Just by a whisker [emoji6] Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    I'm not sure where did you get the idea that they do not pay all 6 singles at the same time. They pay two matches at a time, and there are 12 courts they play on Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    Am I the only one who hates UTR?

    because that's what tennis, or any other competition, is all about. To win. Not to get more yards, more time of possession, more shots on goal, longer drive in golf, etc, etc. You play the game to win. That's the only thing that matters. Which is why both UTR and NRTP are so flawed - they...

    ReopeningWed's 5.0+ Video Diary

    in the Spring of 2017 Jolly posted a challenge "Hit 20 consecutive balls up the middle 1/3 of the court with sufficient pace/spin that they pass the baseline before the second bounce. " [ here ]. There were over 150 posts in that thread. 3 videos were posted. Three. By 4.5 players. And you...

    was that the party after that conference for captains on 'How to properly hide UTR 11 player on 4.5 team to avoid disqualification'? With special keynote speaker giving a talk on 'How to outsmart other sandbagging team by willingly having your highest rated player lose almost bagels to trigger...

    this should be a sticky under 'TTW League and Ratings' Thread. Knowingly using a disqualified way-underrated player from his own team (that still plays only as #2) as an example of a 'regular adult player for a given level'. And also arguing that the said team is _not_ underrated because they...

    JRs vs Adults

    well, to be fair, that Derek player _did_ lose a game over two sets to a strong 4.5 player. So, you know, he is probably only one level underrated, although two levels is not out of the question either.... :rolleyes: On the very USTA page of Marina's team he is listed as 5.0, and it looks like...

    oh, I tell you, these days, if you have too much time on your hands, you can find anything. Here's another nugget. In this very thread the certain poster stated: " I'm talking about a 18-35 yr old adult at 4.5 and I'm from OC SoCal so this is were I base my level of 4.5 vs juniors. The good...

    so let's see what you are saying here: If I understand your posts you are saying that _now_ in 2018 you are beating this player https://www.tennisrecruiting.net/player.asp?id=652462 (4 star), and you are using that as an argument that a good 4.5 NTRP player should beat an 18 yr 4 star player...

    JRs vs Adults

    ok, I'm now confused as to what your argument is. Matt is a very high 4.5, if he played USTA singles and not 'trying' to stay at 4.5 he would likely be 5.0. Now. Which is what, 6-7 years after he played Joseph? He was likely at least 5.5 back when he played him, at the time when he actually...

    JRs vs Adults

    I'm not suggesting that _you_ are not beating 4/5 stars 18 yr old. I'm saying that if you _do_ you are not 4.5 player. You are apparently way better than that. And because of you being apparently grossly misrated in NTRP you should not be using yourself as an example of what a properly ranked...

    JRs vs Adults

    two points. 1) there are indeed many threads on UTR to NTRP rankings comparison. Most of them are based on a single instance of some adult with NTRP ranking playing a non-sanctioned match against UTR ranked junior, and then declaring that the official conversion table is all wrong. When you...

    ok, so according to TennisRecruiting the 100th ranked senior (i.e. 18y r old) is a 4 star player. He happens to have 11.92 UTR ranking. Please let me know a computer ranked 4.5 that has UTR ranking remotely close to that. Or, since any good 4.5 should 'smoke' such 18 yr old 4 star junior, let...

    How long does it take to achieve a UTR 13, is it too late?

    That very well may be. Although I do know that Lou Reed was _not_ a lead singer of the Blue Velvet band.
