USTA haven't done visual DQs in years. I heard they use to be able to DQ them on the spot at Nationals and sectionals, but that was a long time ago. Now the party line is you have to have proof of higher level play- like college or high junior level ranking and even that is easily worked around once you get into the system and get your C rating. I have never seen a USTA official come out to watch a regular league season match to assess a self rater. I would say that is very unusual.
