Sorry I was not aware of any L5 or L4 national events. I hope to have a chance to get a definitive answer from the USTA folks at the upcoming winter national (their 3rd listening meeting) if they are eliminating L5 or they would let the sections decide if they would continue to host L5 for section ranking points in 2014 and beyond.
