That's the way if you still think about rating players... although from my
coaching experience I can say that you need to apply different approaches to
different type of players.
You can have a guy whose strokes are technically terrible, there is no use
of him during the group training because he is off pace, messes with
everything on the court. You could watch him play all year long, and you
would still say he is 3.0 player... but when it comes to matches he beats
everybody including ATP starters. To make him loose you would have to send
him to Nick B. tennis camp for straightening those politically incorrect
Once, somebody here, in the U.S., told me that NTRP is for the reach snobs
who are champs of pro shops at their country clubs... So, you see, now, I've
developed "a speciality shots" for them, based on NTRP rating of
course...you know what I mean, just another approach to "tennis players".
Have fun out of this little provocation...
