The teams may be evenly matched, but the players sure aren't. Well done in sidestepping my question
BTW, I am in no way making a criticism of dizz or anyone else. The problem is with the system that puts such unevenly matched players on the same court together (e.g. a 4.5 male and 3.5 female), not the individuals playing.
