I must say, I'm more excited for the ratings than Combo Districts which starts on Friday 12/3, haha. It better come out tomorrow!

Nope, not yet. I wrote a simple program/script that will email me when it sees an update to anyone matching my name (there are 28 people with the same first/last name combo but only 6 having rankings)!!

It runs every 5 minutes.

^I heard USTA has a mega-virus that wiped out all match results for all players nationwide. Everyone will have to self-rate at 2.5 and go from there.

Last year it took all day to get them changed. They seemed to do the bigger sections first. Here in the Missouri Valley, they did not finish until fairly late in the day.

Where in Ark do you live? And, naturally, HOW 'BOUT THEM HOGS!!! :)

Now that's the best idea I've seen in a long time. :)

But it's too logical for the USTA micromanagers.

Latest update on TennisLink is that the ratings will be published at 6pm ET today. Best part is they hedged themselves saying the date and time are subject to change..

Actually, I just checked and the rates are out, at least for our local level.

Southern Section, South Carolina.

Edit -- this apparently is only for those that played adult league. The mixed exclusive ratings haven't been changed yet.

My script, mentioned above, notified me of a change. Looking at it it was someone who was "C" computer rated. Their rating didn't change, but the field for "Year End Rating Date" is no longer 12/31/2009 and is instead blank. They are in Alabama if that matters...

Does yours have a year end date of 12/31/2010 on it now?

I noticed the date disapeared on mine but it still has the same rating and still says B for benchmark. Maybe it's in the works....

Several players on my team have new higher ratings. The year end rating date is blank now as well.

I was changed from a "C" to a "B" rated player as well even though I was not bumped up a level. So it looks like the new ratings are being published now.

Same here in TX. Showing as bumped with the date disappeared.

Oh joy I get to spend another year getting waxed by former d1 college players and former touring pros. Guess my 1-5 record was not enough to bring me into proper level.
 
We are seeing them in the ******* as well. It is a slaughter for 4.0 men in my area. Some guys who didn't win a single set and had very few competitive sets at 4.0 stayed 4.5 and guys who were 3.5 computer rated just a year ago bumped up to 4.5. A lot of them. Holy cow. Just the 4.0 guys, everyone else seems fairly balanced.

My goodness, Tennislink is slow. Would you people log off so I can see what's happening?

If the current rating holds, I'm still a 4.0. I'm still trying to have an undefeated season at 4.0 - I came close a couple of seasons ago at 8-1. Maybe the USTA wants a perfect season as well. ;)

I swear that the next time I get called a ringer though....

Y'all, stop clicking that "Refresh results" link, you are abusing the internets! I'm clicking it every 30 seconds and it refreshes real slow and I blame y'all!

They have a new message on Tennis Link that it will be 6pm or later ET before the results are posted. They are doing strange things like erasing the year end date on some people who played this year and not others. I wouldn't trust anything you see on the site at this point. They should have shut down the database to ratings request until the update was completed.

Now Im starting to see year end dates.

My entire 4.0 team is now rated with a year end date of 12/31/2010 except for one player who was self rated, it still has his self rate date.

^ i agree, but the changes i am seeing while erratic are logical changes relative to who was bumped or not, so you may be able to trust your rating listed.

How Do You Tell?

Quick question: How do you know if your rating was updated if it didn't change? When I search for my name I see my rating hasn't changed but I can't tell for sure if that means I'm going to stay at my current level or it just hasn't updated yet.

I think it goes in order of who played the earliest in the year.

I say that because in our area there is only one small league that played last winter that I was in, and I always notice that the players in there show up first.

Not that it matters eventually they all show up anyway and this discussion becomes sort of irrelevant.
 
Are there any tell-tale signs to know if your rating has been updated? A date stamp or something?

Even if it's unchanged....how would I know that it's the new updated number vs. the old rating?

I'm still pretty surprised that a couple of guys on my team didn't get bumped. One guy was 10-2 (6-0 at districts/sectionals) and he didn't get bumped. Another guy was 12-3 and no bump.

Didn't get bumped, still 4.0 for another year. Not surprising. I had a good year, but far from dominating. We lost only one guy from our team, a guy who has 4.5 strokes and played and won 4.5 matches last year but is wildly inconsistent. He's a young kid, though, and he'll have fun at 4.5 full time.

no happy here :cry: Not bumped despite 15:4 league record (singles and doubles) with 6:3 6:2 average winning scores. The tournament record was 13:11, a couple of showings in the singles and doubles finals but essentially a wash. I'm in a good company though: the #1 ranked guy in the state also wasn't bumped. Nor were the two guys at #1 doubles ranking in the state who have won all five tournaments they entered and only lost one league match all season.

Yes I know the ratings have nothing to do with rankings or win/loss ratio, and are based solely on whom you played and the game differential. However the DNTRP algorithm appears to produce nonsensical results, at least at the margins...

Well, looks like no league play at level for me next year. Unless I find home at a team at the next NTRP level, it's going to be all tournament play up a level.

Why ESR 4.5 but YER 4.0?

Just noticed a buddy who was bumped up to 4.5 in ESR. But just bumped down back to 4.0 in YER.

I thought YER can't be lower than ESR. Looks like I was wrong. How could this happened?

Not quite sure how this happens, but I've seen it before (a couple of cases last year). So I don't think it's completely unusual.

From Nov. 2, 2009 to Oct. 31, 2010, I was 6-2 at 3.5 (finishing up early start) and 1-12 at 4.0. My year-end rating is 4.0 again.

I saw this happen to someone in our area today too. He didn't play a single match between the time the ESR's came out & the YER's came out, but he got bumped to 4.0, then bumped back down to 3.5 without playing a match.

I have a quick question, I have a self rate date of july 25, 2010, and only played combo doubles and a few tournaments, so i guess i wont get another rating until next year.

You will get a year-end rating. If for some reason you don't like it, you will probably have the option of appealing upwards. Downward appeals are only valid for medical reasons....

sigman: i assume that post was directed torwards me, other people with my last name have a 12/31 rating, so does that mean they just haven't gotten to me yet?
