ANYone who self rates too low is at risk for incurring a self rate grievance or striking out, both of which can negatively affect your team (not to mention relationships with your new-found tennis acquaintances).
If he has no prior competitive tennis history at all, I seriously doubt a grievance filed against him would hold up. I suppose he could get a computer DQ, but I am not sure in Mixed dubs this would occur or not. I just think based on his experience he stated that it is unlikely that he would over rate. Most tennis clubs inflate ratings compared to UTSA.
