^Since I'm French and understand the system, I'd rather believe their ratings on that once. Because you're content with putting balls in play because your opponent is self destructing on the other side doesn't mean you're not 5.5. It means you have a tennis brain. Beautiful shots =! winning. And yes, 5.0 roughly equals "seconde sÚrie", so here the ITF chart is correct. Maybe not always, but in this case yes. Ranking deserved IMO, he plays intelligently and goes for it only when he has a clear chance. You can watch the other videos on the channel if you want to have a better idea. Look at the videos where he still is ranked 15/1. If it ain't minimum 4.5, I don't know in what kind of league you're playing.
