Comparing TRN to UTR for Class of 2015 Girls

Today marks the beginning of Spring Signing Week, so here is my report on where the Top 200 players according to TennisRecruiting.net are headed (a blank next to the player’s name means she hasn’t announced a commitment yet) and a comparison of their TRN ranking to their UTR rating. The charts below are for the Class of 2015 Girls. Click here to see the Class of 2015 Boys.

The first chart you see is ordered by TRN Ranking. The second chart is ordered by UTR Rating. It is interesting to note that the UTRs of the Girls range from a low of 7.69 to a high of 11.99 while those of the Boys range from a low of 10.51 to a high of 14.56. With the way scholarships are set up now – 8 for the Girls and 4.5 for the Boys – the vast majority of these Top 200 Girls will receive significant, even full, funding assistance for their college educations while many of the Top 200 Boys will not.

As with the Boys, at the top of the rankings the two charts are pretty similar. There are a few things that stand out, though. For example, TRN’s #5 ranked player comes in at #15 in terms of UTR rating, and #23 on TRN comes in at #99 on the UTR list.

As I mentioned in the Comments of the Boys article, these rating/ranking tools are much more effective when used together. No one system is perfect. When you add in USTA’s Points Per Round ranking – which, I think we all agree, is the least accurate of the 3 – you get a more well-rounded picture of the player. Not a PERFECT picture but better than relying on any one rating/ranking by itself.

2 Comments on “Comparing TRN to UTR for Class of 2015 Girls”

  1. Interesting note: Claire Liu, 2015 Asics Easter Bowl ITF Champion, has a UTR of 12.19, is ranked #47 in the ITF Juniors (world ranking), and is #1 (Blue Chip) on TRN for the Class of 2018.

  2. Would be interesting to see a later class – say 2017. During senior year the TR senior rankings don’t seem as accurate (IMO) as some players stop playing juniors as soon as they committ to a college causing TR to drop, but do play pro and open events which are picked up by UT and not TR.
