Welcome to the Assessment Department of the Tennis WikiProject. This department was made to assess and grade the quality and importance of articles related to tennis. The main purpose is to recognise excellent articles and to identify articles that might need more work or could be improved.

Frequently Asked QuestionsEdit

How can I get a tennis article rated?

Please list it in the section for assessment requests at the bottom of this page.

Who can assess tennis articles?

Any member of the Tennis WikiProject is free to add or change the rating of an article. Please note that the GA and FA classes need to be assessed by the community, and need consensus for promotion.

Someone put a {{WikiProject Tennis}} template on an article, but it's not a Tennis-related article. What should I do?

Feel free to remove the template, if it is improperly placed.

How do I assess a tennis article?

Place a {{WikiProject Tennis}} template on the article's Talk page using this tag: {{WikiProject Tennis|class=|importance=}}

  • Nick Kyrgios – Rated C-class, Low-importance, would you please reassess the article in light of my edits, thanks! Anewyorkercomic (talk) 09:34, 7 September 2022 (UTC)









  • Not sure if Melbourne Cricket Club should be should be part of WikiProject Tennis, but it is at the moment, and it doesn't have a rating so could someone either rate it or remove it from this project --Jenks24 (talk) 15:01, 16 May 2010 (UTC)
      Done - reviewed and removed. Mjquinn_id (talk) 21:32, 26 July 2021 (UTC)




  • Hi ... can someone not involved with the editing of his article pls rate importance of he Dudi Sela article? He just played through the 4th round at Wimbledon, and his rating increased to 30. Also played for Israel in Davis Cup against Russia. He is not yet rated for importance for tennis. Also, I believe that the article is much better than the old C rating at this point. Tx.--Epeefleche (talk) 02:45, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
  Done - currently B-class. Mjquinn_id (talk) 21:15, 26 July 2021 (UTC)


  Done - most are C, couple still Start. Mjquinn_id (talk) 21:15, 26 July 2021 (UTC)
  • I rated Steve Denton as a high-importance article. He won the 1982 U.S. Open doubles title, and I assumed that the importance assessments are based on doubles as well as singles titles. He also held the world record for fastest serve for a long time. I feel as though this qualifies him for high importance, but was hoping to get a second opinion.
  Done - currently C-class. Mjquinn_id (talk) 21:15, 26 July 2021 (UTC)


  • AAMI Classic - I've been working on this in March, and while the subject is not extremely important, I think the article is worth at least a C-class, or a B-class tag.
  Done - currently C-class. Mjquinn_id (talk) 21:15, 26 July 2021 (UTC)
  • Pablo Cuevas - Article has been expanded. I set in discussion page the article as Start and Mid, but I wonder if it should be High instead of Mid (Roland Garros winner). --Scuac (talk) 14:51, 2 April 2009 (UTC)
  Done - currently B-class. Mjquinn_id (talk) 21:15, 26 July 2021 (UTC)
  • Added tag to Andy Murray page. Set quality as B and importance as high. It's well written and he is obviously a highly important figure in men's tennis.
  Done - Currently, GA article. Mjquinn_id (talk) 21:15, 26 July 2021 (UTC)
  Done - currently B-class. Mjquinn_id (talk) 21:15, 26 July 2021 (UTC)


  Done - Currently C-Class. Mjquinn_id (talk) 20:23, 26 July 2021 (UTC)



  Done - it does. Mjquinn_id (talk) 20:19, 26 July 2021 (UTC)


  Done Mjquinn_id (talk) 20:21, 26 July 2021 (UTC)


  • Rafael Osuna Spent some time improving this article, and I think it's come a long way, though it needs someone to sift through back issues of Sports Illustrated (et al.) and add a dozen more refs. Goldenband (talk) 18:14, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
  Done - currently C-Class Mjquinn_id (talk) 20:19, 26 July 2021 (UTC)
