I USED to play above 4.5 levels...13 A/Open tourneys should qualify, and 2 Q's that I went 3 round in....
I'm 64, heading towards 6' under. My tennis play has slipped a bit (
) since the late '70's. My main sport from April thru Oct. is windsurfing, so tennis often get's less than once a week.
Always was a rec player, but the top A/Open, or 5.5's are also rec players.
Even a couple of buds now on the Futures/Q circuit are really rec players, since they haven't made a first round of a main draw yet.
Had I beaten two more guys during my Q's, I'd make the the first round and actually get paid more than what I paid to enter the event.
