I would trust your judgement over a number.Contrary to my feeling that I'm better at singles (but enjoying the learning process of getting better at doubles), I pulled my TR match ratings over the past few years and found:
- avg singles match rating was 3.16, though only 1 took place in the last 18 months
- avg doubles match rating was 3.38 (3.36 women's dbls and 3.41 in mixed)
So either my doubles partners are carrying me to victory (although their rating factors in too to try to account for that), or I'm actually better at doubles. Most likely: I'm not as good at singles as I thought. My mental game is garbage, so I think playing with a partner helps keep me focused and pulls me out of a death spiral quicker than I would on my own. Pretty big pro to add to the dbls vs singles pros and cons list, I'd say.
I'm about as good in singles and doubles but according to @schmke my rating is much higher in singles. This is probably because I was sabotaged by a couple of partners and because I played a couple guys who are very strong doubles players in singles and trounced them.
