I live this scenario: I'm a 4.0 in my 40's and started playing in my early 30's. I win around 50% at 4.0 and rarely at 4.5, so I think my rating is accurate. My wife, also in 40's, played since she was a kid and played high level club tennis in Europe (not pro, but likely D1 level). She is rated 4.5. I can take a set here and there but have never beaten her in a full match. I do suspect she is closer to 5 than 4.5.
