This is because the range of abilities at that level are so varied that you can "fit in" for awhile and not be accused of sandbagging and sharpen your game. Any lower and you're not really playing tennis, going higher means a lot more physical conditioning and practiced shots. Biggest difference in my experience as you play up is the serve.
Wow think a bit much of yourself here?
Obviously you are in the level that is "real" tennis ... kudos!
