If they're worth of playing against seriously, they're close in playing level.
If you're just fooling around, using your wrong hand kind of thing, it don't count.

This guy was an ambidextrous fairly athletic ex-hockey player with good hand eye coordination who had grown up somewhere in Kansas I believe where his next door neighbor supposedly a ranked junior used to destroy this guy (my opponent) routinely. So, my opponent had probably hundreds if not thousands of pick up matches under his belt which he had played against that really skilled neighbor, and that's why, I think, he was able to beat me the first 26x we ever played which was also during my first year of playing tennis.
