Look, I know the feeling. When I won the first match at the big Open tournament a few weeks ago to a walkover and then won the 2nd against a local highschooler, I made it to the weekend rounds with the legit players.

It was pretty cool sitting in the lounge chatting with the other guys who were playing futures and challengers this summer, and in walk a couple of people from my local club who were just there to watch the matches, and they were like "YOU made it to the weekend? YOU play today?" because I definitely didn't belong, but it was fun to play the role.

But that's a far cry from actually getting ATP points! There's no way a 4.5 or 5.0 would get there unless he's 14 and on the path. It just doesn't work that way in tennis.
