    I captain a 7.0 40+ mixed USTA team that has been quite successful. Last session we won the league, sectionals and going to Maui for nationals in April 2014. WhoHoo!

    Ok, we are four matches into the 2014 "early start" session. The are only four teams and we will play each team four times. We have started off 4-0 and things are looking well. I will probably jinx us but I don't think we will lose a match. So I am working on setting up the line-up for Sunday and looking at our opponents records and line-ups for previous matches as you do. I notice one couple doing really well so far and beat one of my lines in a previous match. Then I happened to notice the girl is rated 4.0C and the guy is 3.5C. However on the team page she is 3.5. Should I say anything? And if so to the other captain or to the league coordinator? I am thinking on just letting it go as I really think we will win anyway. Thoughts?

    Just play. Just my opinion, but it hardly seems worth the effort and fallout. Trust your confidence in your team and play.

    Sounds like she was an early start bump down to me.

    And we have a winner! I forgot to check. I think she will be bumped back to 4.0 at year end though but she is fine for now. Thanks John!

    Also--just to keep readers informed--let me mention that once in a while a player's NTRP rating will appear different on the tennislink team page than it does on the player's individual page. I am not sure why this would occur, but I have seen it happen when the correct NTRP rating was the lower one.

    Lets look at it like this. What would you do if your teams were tied and you had to play them one more time for it all? My answer is this. If I'd tell it in one instance I'd tell it in another. I wouldn't cherry pick whom I'd tell on. That makes you just as bad as the people that are doing the cheating. It looks like you condone it as long as your team isn't threatened.
