Unfortunately, tennis is an honorable game depending on honesty and sportsmanship of the competitors. A number of years ago, I played 3.5 league tennis. We won our league and went to the city championships where the verifiers were out in force. We win the city and I am verified as a 3.5 benchmark player. Next season our team falls apart and I can only find a 4.5 team to play on. I proceed to lose every match I play. The next season I am rated a 4.0. I never received a good explanation from anyone for this bump. I guess I lost to such good players they had to bump me.
