i think the usta has it right.
im supposed to cry for this former 5.0 player.
sorry.. u used to be sooo good and now can't find a league nearby?
probably cuz so few people around you have ever been as good as you!
the author is exactly the type of player most usta teams try to recruit though.... ex college player... a few years of not playing. getting back into the sport. try to get low rating. a few matches and BAM... they are crushing their self taught twisted wrister opponents that only started playing when they were 25 and have enough bad habits and lazy technique that there is no way to compete with somebody that had proper techniqe engrained into muscle memory as a 7 year old thru college.
jordan might not play like "air jordan" any more... but i wouldn't want him in my rec. basketball league either!
