That's why I excluded him from my challenge to USTA 3.0Cs.
Whatever mechanical problems you see, I think he is intelligent enough and motivated enough to improve upon.
So, I'm issuing a new challenge. I expect that by 2015 NTRPolice will be a bona fide, solid 4.5C USTA player.
He certainly could end up a 4.5. I'll bet against 2015. That would mean 3 bumps up in 3 years. I havent seen someone accomplish that. I'd put the over-under on 2017...slightly ahead of his own prediction (by age 35 = 2019).
