    so. now what? are you still trying to get him to agree that he stinks? that he needs a complete overhaul?

    he must be a pretty nice guy if he continues to associate with you despite your criticisms.

    what if he chanages but those changes don't satisfy you?

    come to think of it: What changes can he make that will satisfy you, induce you to stop criticizing him? :confused:

    thank God!

    a new ranking system is coming. the best solution.

    finally, we are moving in the right direction.

    what cant be measured cant get done.

    As a newbie, I didn't understand this thread until I read another one. I think I get it now.

    I read this thread only partially, but could it be that this is a political thread? Maybe someone tried to endorse for a new ranking system and this thread was his way to show why this is needed:D.

    telling that guy's life story at a USTA convention might convince some people:D. sounds really extreme.

    I get your point. the rating should ensure that players of similar level play each other. playing too high is neither for you nor for your opponent funny.

    I think rating by an expert and later a system where you can drop and raise could help against that problem.

    You could say that a player that looses more than x% must go down half a level next season and player who win more than y% must raise a level. that would make the fields more even, although it also would need a lot of effort.

    Sorry, I didn't answer till now.
    Maybe the reason we are always in disagreement....
    I finaled my first C or 3.5. Won a big draw C the following. NEVER played a B tourney ever. Following year, they gave me a top 20 B ranking. Why, I don't know, I played 4 A/Opens that year and went 3 rounds once, 2 rounds once, and got bagelled twice first round.
    Following year, much better A/Open results, but didn't check rankings for the year after.
    Maybe I am the guy you are talking about in your first post...:)

    He's allowed to play any level he wants, as long as he's playing up and not playing down. A guy who is 50 years old can enter an Open tournament. There's a reason they call it an OPEN tournament. Its not up to you to decide who does what.

    no, only you

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    wow, are you educated?

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    you from KW? working on the education part. will get back to you.

    btw, what is your contention? please dont respond by saying, what is mine.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    strange, that bubble is in KW

    high probabilty of lying

    that comment was a rebuttal to your commnet - i know my level, which was not backed up with stats. even leed backs up his claims

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    why do you lie about KW? you can continue to avoid. i will continue asking.

    You're posting on a public forum and telling people to mind their own business? Hilarious

    I'm not from KW. You trying to find stuff about me? Great, I'm sure it will be very exciting.
    Like I said, its a public forum and I commented in your thread like you commented in mine. I never told you to leave or became hostile towards you so not sure what the problem is here. This was a funny post however:

    "@tennis balla. u are a teaching pro. get a real job"

    I guess all the guys that post here that make their living teaching tennis aren't really working are they....or no wait is it just me again?
