Well doesn't sound like he is from the US so he doesn't probably understand the rating system. No problem... but yah 2 years and basically self taught without any competitve experience is actually closer to 4.0/4.5 at best.
The only way he is making it to the first round of a main draw futures event is if he gets a WC by buying his way in or knowing the TD and getting one. To get it the regular way he would have to beat three 5.5-6.5 players in their 20s. Nothing wrong with having goals though
