Does Ultimate allow players to "cherry pick" their opponents?

Conversely, there are a number of players at my level who I am probably even money or worse against, so we'd each likely win about five of those ten tries.
My point is that depending on their mix of opponents, someone could easily not get better but still dramatically improve their win/loss record against players of a particular rating level.
