I just don't get it!
Say you're at a bar and meet a hottie. Conversation shifts to tennis, she asks you what level do you play? You're gonna say you're a 3.5? Like beginner level competitive tennis?
Wouldn't you look better saying you play 4.5 or Open level tennis?
Now shift your hottie to a bunch of jocks. Same thing.
I won my second C or 3.5 tourney my 3rd year. I entered 12 consecutive A/Opens after that, and 2 Q's. Only lost in the first round a handful of times, and going 3 rounds in both the Q's for the TransAmerica tourney in SanFrancisco.
Why waste time cheery picking?
