ITF are the World Rankings U18 level

ETA ranks are for players in the European Tennis Association (Tennis Europe now) but U16 and U14 groups

USTA ranks are for US players in their various age groups

they're all Assocaiation ranks

Good luck to my favs

thank you

so if a player is ETA - does that mean they're not good enough for ITF, or not old enough?

they can have ranks on both, some players World Ranks are higher than their ETA rank cos they haven't played many tourns in that age-group.

most of those are pretty new players, you look for the young ones in groups and least tourns played.


Good luck to my favs
