sorry to derail. hey OP - keep it simple and just take notice of what the guy wears and brings to the court.

matching gear from head to toe and a 12 pack racquet bag with only 4 racquets = poser. likely wildly inconsistent. short day for you.

scrubby non matching clothes and looks like he just finished mowing the lawn. carrying one racquet - possibly wooden. small thermos of water = tighten your laces and apply the diaper cream. you are about to be handed bagels and breadsticks. your entire tourney may be over in about 30 minutes.
Yeah +1 here too. My wife also plays league but has watched me play a match only once when most of our state tournament matches last year were rained out and we had to play a 4 game mini-match against the first place team to finish out the round robin part of the tournament on a Saturday night. She watched us blow a 3-1 lead with a chance to serve out the deciding game but instead we dropped four games in a row. I don't think she was too impressed with that display of intestinal fortitude. At least my kids weren't watching too.
