Re: German Amateur Tennis League and LK-Tournament Thread - Season 2013 - Vol. 1

As a layman let me ask what you mean with "LK" and how it works to get a lower number. Crazillo already gave a hint in his comment. It must be something like handycap in gulf.
A very few words on it would be fine.

Re: German Amateur Tennis League and LK-Tournament Thread - Season 2013 - Vol. 1

Had a good season last year and moved up from LK 14 to 13. It will be not so easy to hold this.

Never played LK tournaments in the past, so propably I should start with it this year. Even though it's not that easy because of having also other priorities with being married and still playing at the GLTA-Tour.

LK means Leistungsklasse, your teams have to be made in accordance with LKs, so 10 plays in front of 14 etc. Before some teams used to play with a weak No. 1 to have a tactical advantage which is not possible anymore.
When you start, you get the lowest LK, that is 23, 1 is the highest.
In my case, I got 7 or 8 but didn't play for years, and when I started again I had 14 (I think you drop two LKs each season if you don't play).
Also, tournament entrance is organized according to LKs, so you can only play A level with high LKs and B level with lower ones.
And there's a lot more tournaments now than before, I think that's the best thing about the LK system. When I was a junior, we only had very few tournaments that were also waaaaay overpriced. It's better now and I wish it was like that before. Nevertheless, the system has some flaws, too. You can only go up if you beat a certain amount of players with a higher LK than you have yourself. Also, some players won't meet good enough opposition in regular interclubs so their LK might drop despite winning every single match.

Re: German Amateur Tennis League and LK-Tournament Thread - Season 2013 - Vol. 1

Sascha, maybe you should mention that you get points for each win

if you beat a player with 2 LK´s (or better) LK better then you
then you get 150 points
1 LK better then you = 100 points
same LK = 50 points
1 LK worse then you = 30 points
2 LK worse then you = 15 points
3 LK worse then you = 10 points
4 LK or more worse then you = 5 points

as example for me this season

i need 80 points, and at least 1 win against a LK 17 (or better) player to keep LK 17
if i reach 250 points and at least 1 win against a LK 16 (or better)

there would be even the chance to move up to LK 12 or more
but for LK 12 i would need 1500 points, and at least 2 wins over LK 12 (or better)

it was just a example to make it a bit more clear


you earn the points when you play a official Teammatch for your club, or you can enter "LK Turniere"
at such a LK Tournament they try to pair you with players on a similar LK
because it would be useless if a LK 10 would face a LK 18
the LK 10 wouldn´t earn much points, and the LK 18 hasn´t a real chance

Re: German Amateur Tennis League and LK-Tournament Thread - Season 2013 - Vol. 1

Danke, Sascha!

Yeah and I think you need three wins against LK players of the level you eventually wanna move up to. So I am LK 5 now but I played a DTB tournament (they count for LK, too, but not vice versa) last winter where I beat two LK4 so now I need one more LK4 or better win in order to be LK4 for Summer 2014. DTB recalculates annually.

Re: German Amateur Tennis League and LK-Tournament Thread - Season 2013 - Vol. 1

A higher LK you need more wins
At my level mostly one win is enough to move up or stay at the same LK
A higher LK they wanna lower the influence of luck and retirement I guess

Re: German Amateur Tennis League and LK-Tournament Thread - Season 2013 - Vol. 1

tomorrow we have our first tie, but our #1 can´t play
so i have to play as #3
most likely against a LK 15 player, it´s a good chance for me to earn good points since i´m LK 17
but it will be tough to win
