    Is this a junior? Or is there an age division? If so you can look him up in tennislink.

    High school player? I don't think that any of them can be beyond 4.5.

    Okay, so some ratings are "inflated", depending on regions. . . so it is possible that you could find *cough cough* "5.0" high schoolers (inflated 5.0s, that is.). ;)

    4.5?

    I have been playing serious tennis for two years, and made my varsity team as a freshman. I was slotted at second doubles for the league champion 14-1 team. I have been evaluated and rated at 4.0...If there are no players in HS above 4.5, how does our first singles player, who is about ten times better than me lose to players that are twenty times better then him. You have absolutely no idea what you are talking about, Roddick the Beast. What do you base your "facts" on? You are a joke and should never post anything about this topic again. Sorry for the harsh words, but something had to be done.

    Roddick the Beast is a total dumb****. He needs to learn something about tennis. Any player can play high school tennis. The Brian Brothers and countless other pros have played high school tennis. And at the same time they were world ranked juniors. They had to have a rating of at least 6.0. So that theory is out the window just by that. In addition, Ratings dont mean ****. All they are is a list of skills that the USTA thinks that someone should have. The higher the rating, the more skills in the list. The fact of the matter is, I know people who are 5.0 that have all of the skills on the list, and then other people who don't have half of the skills on the list but can still beat the 5.0 with all of the skills. This just shows that ratings dont mean jack.

    #2 - N.E. Michigan (U18 )
    #355 - mid-west Section (U18 )

    #1 - N.E. Michigan (U16)
    #26 - mid-west Section (U16)

    but there are only 30 ranked players in N.E. Michigan... most playesr are in S.E. michigan but his section ranking is pretty good. so i wouldnt doubt if he is a 4.5 player...

    Haha, this guy is just mad cause I dissed his sorry mechanics in another thread. Haha.

    Plus, in my "original/first" post in this thread, I "cleary" wrote "I think". Go back and read. As you can see, I did not "edit" anything to add those words. Learn to "read" and "comprehend", asswipe. :mrgreen:

    I agree. Roddick The Beast has not contributed anything useful to this forum thus far. He clearly has no idea what he is talking about here.

    Same applies to you. And yes, people do know what I am talking about. You are just too much of an idiot to even know. Don't bother trying to understand. Your brain might not be able to handle the small load and then malfunction. :mrgreen:

    so what are we arguing about? i love how half of the threads here end up being flame wars talking about things completely irrelevant. just because you cant do this in real life because you might get beat up doesnt mean you can do it here and feel good about yourself. makes you look like an a-hole is what it does... NO ONE CARES, get over your own little insecurities.

    The thing is, you don't joke around a lot. You're totally serious. You go around flexing your immaturity, obsessively commenting and participating in meaningless banter with mediocre looking people. Yep, that's about it.

    You can become as good as this guy if you keep playing. His ranking shows he's solid, but certainly not at a skill level that is in any way unattainable.

    yes, he is definitly good. though, N.E. michigan isnt as populated as S.E. michigan where most of the top players are (mainly from state champs, ann arbor pioneer if you know this), but 28 in mid west section is very respectable.

    S T F U! You start out by saying that inflated 5.0s are the best among high schoolers, then you start an argument about how contributive you are to this forum all the while making useless posts like "go to hell, terdface" ??? Did you know that Michael Chang won the French Open when he was 16? Does that make him an inflated 5.0?

    wow you guys are pathetic...

    i feel like the only one here providing... inteligent information... like a message board should be. Who are you guys here to prove? serisouly.

    anyways, I think David Farah lost in the semis of the state tournament at #1 singles in michigan, his school is in division 4.

    Meg, he said "you guys" . . . so he is saying that YOU and I are "pathetic". Can you please bite him for me? I'll let you do the honors, since you seem to enjoy doing so. . . . .can't let him get away with that now! :mrgreen:
