Eh, I'm claiming ignorance on this. Back in 2004 the self-rating guidelines were much different and it was my very first run at USTA. He fell within the guidelines but had a "big name". So, someone *****ed about it. He filled out a background check form and they DQ'd him. We were fine with it and it actually benefited everyone else because we lost all his matches. On top of it, he lost a match legitimately; so I'm not necessarily sure it was completely warranted.

Either way, to answer your question...no. We didn't intentionally try and do anything shady.
