The USTA Self-Rating System

An experienced real estate professional, Abraham Valentino founded the iMetros.com Corporation in 2012 and continues to serve the real estate investment firm as chief executive officer. Outside of the office, Abraham Valentino stays physically active by playing tennis. He ranks as a 4.0 on the USTA rating system.

The United States Tennis Association (USTA) has developed a seven-point self-rating system so that individuals can seek out opponents and tournaments of comparable skill levels. Players ranked between 1.0 and 2.0 are considered beginners, struggling with stroke competency and basic positioning, while a 2.5 ranked player is beginning to understand stroke mechanics. Players at this level still fail to make efficient contact with the ball and struggle with movement around the court.

Between 3.0 and 4.0, a player is considered to be of intermediate skill. These players can hit with consistency and some direction so long as the pace remains at a manageable level. By the 4.0 mark, a player is capable of effectively implementing various skill shots, including lobs and drop shots, while consistently modifying the depth of his or her ground strokes.
