Do you agree with the USTA ratings? I don't. I can beat players probably in the 5.0 range because I'm more mentally tough than most, but if i was rated, I'd be a 4.0.
You mean the NPR something something whatever those letters are ratings? Like the ones with 4.5 5.0 5.5?
I don't really agree with them either...but it's more because I'm quite an inconsistent player
One day I can be up there on the chart but the next I can be as bad as a 2.0
. Haha, no really, not THAT bad but you get my drift.
But yeah, I guess it's for fun...but I'd like to win..
Oh and I play city tournaments once or twice a year whenever they have them
I never get far in the doubles
I suck at doubles, can't make it past round robin. Actually, can't even win a single game
But in singles, I got to the Quarterfinals before I had to play my teammate from school
It was such a tight tight match, I played my heart out, and I still lost...2-6 2-6
I choke under pressure
Meaning...I don't fair well when it is no-ad scoring
