What NTRP is this?
 
I personally think I am in the 5.0 range (I am the one hander).

Man, if you had a serve, you'd be 5.5.

Maximagq 03-24-2014 04:26 PM

So you are saying 5.0 is a good estimate eh LeeD? :)

Matt, you're at the very least a 5.0. Not a question about it

LeeD 03-24-2014 04:28 PM

We'll see, if you can win a 4.5 tourney, or go a few rounds in an Open level tourney.
Seems like your opponent is a solid 5.0.

Maximagq 03-24-2014 04:31 PM

Di Giulio plays #6 for UCLA, pretty sure he is 6.0.

KineticChain 03-24-2014 04:54 PM

did this match take place before he was playing at UCLA? players usually improve pretty quickly after joining a D1 program. and i'd say you're definitely in the 5.0 range.

Maximagq 03-24-2014 04:56 PM

Yeah this was before UCLA so June 2013, three months earlier.

dizzlmcwizzl 03-24-2014 05:14 PM

You would the best in my 4.5 league ... So that makes you either a 5.0 + here or a decent 3.5 in NorCal.


But the guy you are playing is very good indeed.

Maximagq 03-24-2014 05:18 PM

3.5 are you serious LOL, isn't So Cal much stronger than Nor Cal?

LeeD 03-24-2014 05:29 PM

Who mentioned 3.5?
If looks could kill.
I"m saying, if you had a serve, you'd be 5.5. What the serve is worth is subject to debate.
Also, YOU posted your best vid, against a player who latter became No.4 for UCLA.
Might not mean that much, that vid. Before RalieghZalameda graduated high school, I was beating him more often than him beating me, and I'd go farther both the Q's than he did. His freshman year, he played No.4 for CanadaCollege, admittedly not in the class of UCLA, but a respected tennis college back then.
I was 4.5 officially.

Maximagq 03-24-2014 05:29 PM

I was referring to the poster above me, dizzlmcwizzl

LeeD 03-24-2014 05:33 PM

Dizzle was just mocking me, kinda jumping on the Arche3 bandwagon. Don't take him seriously. He did say you would dominate the 4.5 league he plays in.

Maximagq 03-24-2014 05:34 PM

Oh okay, I apologize. Misunderstood that sorry. But from my understanding, aren't Southern California and Florida the two hardest sections in the country? That's the way it is with the junior rankings.

Raliegh Zalameda, is he the father of Riza Zalameda who played tennis for UCLA around 2005ish?

TeamOB 03-24-2014 06:01 PM

You are very good! At least 5.0, maybe 5.5+. That first BH return was unreal.

TeamOB if you are ever in Los Angeles I would be down to hit.
I live in Pittsburgh and will be going to college in Boston in the fall. But if I'm ever in LA I would be happy to hit! If you are ever on the East Coast let me know.

There is no real functional rating past 5.0 so the anything above that seems pretty subjective. From what I saw in my area the guys that were competitive in open tournaments (meaning ranked in top 10/20) and had real shot at winning tournaments got bumped to 5.5.

Watching video is not very accurate but I think you are clearly a 5.0. I don't necessarily think you would dominate 4.5 though as there seem to be a set of people out of level every year.

so you are suggesting that even though he is having a fine match with soon-to-be UCLA bound player, he is pretty much an everyday 4.5 level player? ok, let's just say I'm going to disagree....

Maximagq 03-24-2014 07:16 PM

I think he's trying to say some people sandbag at 4.5 levels.

gmatheis 03-24-2014 07:17 PM

Matt you have some serious game!
