More playing oppportunities, and more team registration fees for USTA.
You are correct, of course, though from my way of looking at it (51), I felt that they were raising
the Senior cutoff from 50 to 55, so I was only eligible for Seniors for one year before it was taken away.
I didn't look at it as lowering it from 50 to 40, since I play with 40 year olds already, as I mentioned before.
