I haven't played a tournament since 1978.
I still play tennis, and player's always ask me my level, whether they played with me or not.
Mostly say "4.0".
I beat EVERY member of MarinCounty''s No1 4.0 team, only lost twice at night to their no.1 singles, and beat him daylight maybe 15 times. Never lost a set to the other 11 guys.
Still say I'm a 4.0.
What else can I say if someone asks me my level.
I see real 4.5's hit all the time, play doubles with them, and I KNOW I'll lose matches to them.
