Many years ago now, I developed a rating system, in my Triangle Software,
which I called CTRP, where the 'C' stood for 'club' instead of 'N' for
'national'. It was an extension of FILE&RANK, a point ladder program. The
net of it was that people played matches and got their ranking or ladder
positions expressed in points which could be converted into the NTRP format
with two decimals (3,57, 4.15. etc.).
The result was that you had NTRP-like ratings, based on actual match
results. Not only that, the same person could have one rating as a singles
player and a different rating as a doubles player, which is very realistic.
The USTA, which is all about politics, never paid any attention to that
idea, but what else is new?
I get paid for surfing the web -shouldn't you?
Don't forget to use my ID (HMM-938) if asked if someone referred you!
