As a strong 3.5 female, would you all suggest that I play 7.0 or 8.0? I honestly thought that 7.0 would be my only option, but am now wondering if 8.0 might be better as I'm not sure I like being the stronger partner. Sorry if this is a dumb question, I'm new here (and somewhat to USTA)!
If you are a strong 3.5F you will be high demand in 8.0 mixed. The teams that usually go to playoffs will be filled 4.5M, 3.5F pairings. I haven't seen a team yet filled with 4.0M/4.0F go to playoffs.
Just be prepared to be targeted in every match.
