Again, I'm not trying to insult anyone - I am only a 4.5 myself. But if you are 4.0/4.5 and you think your game is complete, you are going to be in for a rude awakening if/when you play a 5.5+.

Do you have a topspin BH passing shot that you can hit on the run? Can you make 90% of overheads from behind the service line? Do you have placement and variety (kick, slice, twist) on your 2nd serve? Etc, etc. A 5.5+ is going to have all that.
