What is UTR?

UTR is a rating system that allows skill level-based competition to ensure that players are maximizing their matches to become the best tennis competitors they can be, and to encourage fair play.

How is UTR Calculated?

UTR is calculated by an algorithm using a player’s last 30 eligible match scores from the last 12 months. For each eligible match, the algorithm calculates a match rating and a match weight; a player’s UTR is the weighted average of all the match ratings.
