How does the Player Strength Rating differ from the USTA NTRP or dynamic rating?
Per the USTA website, the standard USTA NTRP and dynamic ratings do not include mixed or Tri-Level league matches; some sections do not include combo or sanctioned tournament matches. Players who exclusively play mixed doubles receive a mixed doubles NTRP rating. So substantial differences in what's included in USTA ratings exist between sections of the USTA. TLA's goal is for the TLA Player Strength Rating to reflect the "true strength" of a player so all matches are included. This is the main reason that the top rated team in our league and championship reports so often win.
