- There is no direct one-to-one comparison between NTRP and WTN due to many differences in each rating system. For instance:
- WTN and NTRP operate using two, distinct algorithms.
- The match results that make up a player’s Computer Rated (C) NTRP rating and WTN will not always be the same.
- WTN has a separate singles and doubles rating, while NTRP takes singles and doubles results into account for a single rating.
- NTRP and WTN handle mixed doubles matches differently.
- WTN ratings are calculated and published once per week, whereas NTRP is published once per year.
The ITF WTN algorithm uses match result data as provided by the United States Tennis Association (USTA) to calculate your ITF WTN. Results provided by the USTA from as far back as 2016 can be used in calculating your rating. The more data used, the more accurate the rating. Pre-match ratings of both players are used by the algorithm to project the outcome of the match. Your ITF WTN changes depending on your match score and how it compares to the projection. Current results carry more weight than older results. Over time, a result carries less and less weight in your rating calculation. Match results are analyzed at set level; the algorithm takes into account each individual set as its own result.
