That is our understanding yes. If you keep winning (or losing) by the expected margin your rating will not change.

Furthermore, if you only play with the same partner exclusively then your relative dynamic ratings difference will remain the same after each match.

What I mean by this is that if you are a 3.60 and he is a 3.70 at the start of the season and you only play with each other then by the end of the season his dynamic rating will still be 0.1 higher than yours.... no matter what happens during the season.

Further - further more, the USTA ratings system is supposed to be a zero sum calculation .... meaning if you and your partner do better than expected and after a match each of your ratings went up 0.05 points then the ratings of each of your opponents would go down by the exact same margin.
