I'm currently looking on ***************** and have no idea what the difference between

ITF rankings
SWE rankings
ETA rankings
USTA rankings

could anyone explain that to me?

thanks :)

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 ;)

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 :rolleyes: 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.
