Since many seem to be reading this, a rating question: many websites have the standard description of the NTPR (or is it NTRP) ratings, which description are, admittedly, somewhat vague and lend themselves to quite loose interpretation, as we have often seen. I have seen once, however, and was never able to find again, an expanded description of the above rankings, which contained more detailed comments about what a player of every level is supposed to be capable of during actual play situations. These comments made the levels much more understandable and well defined and made it easier for one to rank him/herself. For example, I remember one of the things for a 4.5 (where I usually rate myself) was- 'you should be able to return virtually every kind of shot, provided it is hit right at you'. Before you laugh, this said 'every kind'. How many of us 4.5's can really return a pro's heavy groundstoke hit right at our weaker wing? How about several of them in succession? Makes one wonder about our self-rankings sometimes. Does anyone know where these comments can be found?? Those were a really useful read.
