|Sample Rating Chart results for a 4.0 NTRP player.|
After playing each match, your dynamic NTRP changes.
In my case, I was "stuck" at the 4.0 level for nearly 4 years in a row, even though I had a high win-loss ratio.
It is important to note that depending on the "difficulty" of your opponent, your rating may go up or down more (or less).
Winning 6-0, 6-0 will boost your rating more than after a 3rd set tie-breaker.
See this FAQ for more details.
Live Dynamic NTRP Rating
There is a special online service offered by Kevin that calculates this. http://computerratings.
He can give you a very accurate estimate on your current dynamic NTRP ~$20 (please refer to Tennis-Bargains when you contact him).
Rating Status report card
In the provided charts and report he provides (example below), he explains how close you are to reaching that next level (or falling to the level below).
Bump Up or Bump Down
If you reach those thresholds, you may get your rating adjusted by the computer. Also, if you get close enough to the threshold (like in my case), you will be able to appeal to go up to the next level.
USTA Nationals - Team Assessment Tool
This service will be most valuable to teams, captains and players who are seeking to advance to USTA Nationals, or at least Sections / District championships. To have a good chance, it is better to have a team with players who are on the upper end of the rating cut-off. For teams, Kevin also has a Flight Preview Estimate report that helps gauge a team's average rating from the previous year.
In 2017, USTA has moved some of the National Championships to Orlando Florida (at their new National Campus).
