And yes, some 4.5's do this, but not many. The ones who fake their warmups are usually the ones who really care about winning pusher level tennis.
My mate who I play regularly warms up terribly. I mean, he literally struggles to hit one over the net, especially on his backhand (if you can call it that) and gives me nothing to get into a groove on. Then when we play, he's as consistent as high-grade oil...its quite frustrating. He's not faking in the warm-up, he just needs a competitive environment to play his best tennis. Quite amazing actually. Probably opposite to a lot of players out there who play worse in actual matches.
