This is my first year in USTA and I self rated at a 3.5. My biggest issue is that I have a permanent disability in my arthitic ankles. Solely based on my strokes though, my captain has placed me at singles. I am losing weight a lot, and my mobility is getting a little better, but in all honesty as my first year back in 13 years I would really like to play another "competitive" year in 3.5 next year(I was one of the last players to join my league and a lot of my teammates are 3.0's who are playing up). If I am playing 2nd singles or even first and go say 4 and 7 is that a bump up? Where do you think the cutoff is?
