Presumably he is estatic, since now he is more likely to be bumped and get to play challenging tennis and better quality tennis, no?
Or is he upset since he may no longer get to beat up on weaker players? (by definition if he is close to 4.5 boundary, then he is stronger than the vast majority of 4.0s)
