That 5.5 player (Scott Bayer) is a self-rate. I checked his tennis link scores and he has lost to other 4.5 players. So that 6-2, 6-2 victory is more like a victory over a 4.5. Secondly Sydney Jim has won some closer matches against other 4.5s, with scores like 7-6 , 6-4 etc.
So in essence he's more like a very strong 4.5 at the moment.
