Ratings vs. Rankings

January 1, 2017
<h2>Junior and Adult Tennis</h2>
<h1>Ratings vs. Rankings</h1>

Interested in learning the differences between Junior NTRP Ratings, Adult NTRP Ratings and USTA Rankings/Standings?

 

Ratings are your National Tennis Ratings Program (NTRP) skill level assignment for participating in a USTA League, USTA Junior Team Tennis or in USTA-sanctioned adult or junior tournaments. Rankings & Standings are determined by points earned and your results at USTA-sanctioned tournaments.

 

The information below breaks down some of the major differences:

 

Used in

Junior NTRP Ratings: USTA Junior Team Tennis and USTA-sanctioned junior tournaments.

Adult NTRP Ratings: Skill level is generated by results in USTA League and/or USTA NTRP adult tournaments.

USTA Rankings/Standings: USTA-sanctioned junior and adult tournaments.

 

Reflects

Junior NTRP Ratings: Skill level is generated by results in 12U-18U divisions in USTA-sanctioned and non-sanctioned junior tournaments and/or USTA Junior Team Tennis leagues, USTA men’s/women’s Opens, USTA Pro Circuit events and/or U.S. International Tennis Federation events.

Adult NTRP Ratings: Skill level is generated by results in USTA League and/or USTA NTRP adult tournaments.

USTA Rankings/Standings: Ranking and standings points are earned by winning singles and doubles matches at various types of USTA-sanctioned tournaments and designated ITF tournaments.

 

Updated

Junior NTRP Ratings: Junior Ratings are calculated nightly and will be updated every two weeks for public view.

Adult NTRP Ratings: Year-end ratings are published in December and determine the level at which a player must play the following year.

USTA Rankings/Standings: Standings are released as often as once a week. However, final rankings are released in January and reflect a player’s final position in a given age division for the previous year.

 

Scale

Junior NTRP Ratings: The rating scale for junior players is shown in tenths, starting with 2.0, which is the lowest, progressing to 2.1, 2.2, 2.3, 2.4, etc., until 7.0, which is the highest rating given to world-class players with ATP/WTA points.

Adult NTRP Ratings: The rating scale for adults starts with 2.0, progressing to 2.5, 3.0, 3.5, 4.0, etc., until 7.0, which is the highest rating given to world-class players with ATP/WTA points.

USTA Rankings/Standings: The ranking system uses a Points Per Round Combined Ranking System (PPR). Ranking points earned in singles and doubles matches are combined (with greater weight placed on ranking points earned in singles) and players are ordered based on this total. The range of points possible varies based on level of tournament (district, section, national) and the player’s advancement through the main draw.

 

Results

Junior NTRP Ratings: Junior ratings are based on match results from the last 18 months with more recent matches weighted more heavily in the calculation.

Adult NTRP Ratings: Adult ratings are based on match results from the last 12 months with more recent and championship matches weighted more heavily in the calculation.

USTA Rankings/Standings: Adult and junior standings and rankings are based on results from the best six tournaments for each player during the past 12 months. A player may have played in more than six tournaments; however, only the results from the six best tournaments will count for rankings and standings.

 

Gender Comparison

Junior NTRP Ratings: In Junior Ratings, boys and girls are on the same scale. A 3.2 boy and a 3.2 girl will have an equal chance of winning a match against one another.

Adult NTRP Ratings: In adult ratings, men and women ratings are intentionally separated from each other. Generally, a 4.0 woman would have an equal chance of winning a match against a 3.5 man.

USTA Rankings/Standings: In tournaments, men and women are traditionally separated in unconnected draws. However, in 10-and-under and entry-level junior tournaments, boys and girls can be placed in co-ed draws.

 

Doubles

Junior NTRP Ratings: Junior Ratings include doubles and mixed doubles in the calculation.

Adult NTRP Ratings: USTA League players who only play mixed doubles will generate a rating from mixed doubles. For those who participate in the Adult or Senior divisions, mixed doubles results will not affect their final rating.

USTA Rankings/Standings: Doubles in juniors and adult tournaments contribute to a player’s standing and year-end ranking.

 

Appeal process

Junior NTRP Ratings: Junior Ratings do not have an appeal process.

Adult NTRP Ratings: Adults can appeal their year-end rating. However, the appeal will only be granted if they meat appeal criteria.

USTA Rankings/Standings: If players find an error in their player record, they can contact their USTA section administrator to correct the result.
