pay a 7.0 to teach you a basic slice serve, and basic block volleys.... practice that for 6 months.... you become a 3.5 player at that point.
now, for the next 6 months, the 2 of you enter 4.5 doubles tournaments together and win a bunch of them.
on the NTRP computer, you will be a real 5.0
Too bad the OP is listed location is in Greece.
Your plan would work, but I think the OP wanted real 5.0 skillz, not just a 5.0 rating any way possible.
