4. Matches considered for Wheelchair national ranking. Matches that
use the scoring system specifically described in Rules 5, 6, 7 and
No-Ad scoring described in Appendix IV of the ITF Rules of Tennis
and that are the best of three sets or the best of five sets in all
sanctioned tournaments shall be considered for ranking.
Matches that use other formats in main draws, qualifying draws,
and consolation draws of USTA Wheelchair National Championships
shall be considered for ranking if their use is authorized in advance
by the USA Wheelchair Tennis Committee.
Matches that use other formats in all other tournaments shall be
considered for ranking unless their use for ranking is prohibited by
the USA Wheelchair Tennis Committee.
Results of head-to-head matches between USTA players in ITF
sanctioned tournaments held outside the United States shall be
considered for ranking if reported to the USTA. Players are
responsible for reporting match results to the ranking coordinator.
5. Matches generally may count in only one division. No match may
count for ranking in more than one division. If divisions are combined
and a player is placed in a higher division, the player shall
receive participation credit for the division in which the player
originally entered.
