How would winning the tournament peg you at 4.5?
It just means you are AT LEAST 4.5, if not more....
It also means that if your intention is to just "have fun, play tennis", you likely would be competitive at 5.0 even it means you wont automatically win every match....
I know that generally they may let you self-rate appeal down a level, but they wont let you appeal down two levels.
