This probably deserves its own new thread, but we've been discussing here so I'll keep it here. I have another scenario where it seems pretty clear that an opponent of a self-rated player can have a match rating calculated and potential strike before the self-rated player has played their first 3 matches. Or this DQ was the result of something other than 3 strikes. See http://tennislink.usta.com/Leagues/...C7E5027D4A59487F3E2D1C63D2B1&par2=2013&par3=0 The 5/5 match was played with another self-rated player (not a problem) but against a self-rated player (Kendall) playing his first (and only) match of the year. So this can't have generated a match rating. The 6/2 match was played with a C-rated partner against a self-rated player (Mikhail) playing just his second match. Unless Mikhail has a dynamic rating for computing opponents ratings against after just one match, this can't have generated a match rating. The 6/16 match was with the same self-rated partner as earlier and against a self-rated player (Terry) playing his first match. This can't have generated a match rating. The 7/14 match was a default, so no match rating. So through 4 matches, there should be no match ratings calculated. He proceeds to play 2 matches at Districts, both generating match ratings so I can see there being 2 at this point, but he now shows at DQ in TennisLink. Ideas?
