    So why isn't Llodra playing the singles tomorrow?

    Thank you USTA for all the changes in USTA ratings bumps

    Back to the original post, I know a bunch of 5.0's who got bumped from 4.5 to 5.0...

    my youtube vids

    You obviously have a lot of talent and had great training. All of the major a technical concepts are well drilled and confident. If I could only add maybe a couple of small ideas that could help. I have played against 3 star girls and ex - highly ranked D 1 players (Yale etc. in their mid...

    Best match you've seen live.

    even though these aren't Fedal finals, but I was at the Ryan Harrison/Stahovsky match at the US Open. Amazing energy. Also I was at the Oudin/Petrova match last year at the Open...amazing energy from the crowd!

    I'm playing a 5.5 tonight...

    You can also go down the line during the rally don't have to do it on the serve esp if the person has a good serve. hit a deep crosscourt shot return and if you see a ball that you can change directions on, rip it down the line!

    The Nicest Thing An Opponent Has Ever Said To You

    I was slated to play with a 4.0 in 4.5 men's league. The team we played is tied for 1st and the doubles team we played had a player who wins 90% of his matches and his partner was no slouch either. So, basically its was 8.5 vs. 2 4.5's. The first couple of games were not pretty but I started...

    Your NTRP progression

    "I'm Actually Watching This Match, Brad."

    sometimes BG makes me laugh, sometimes he is too meatheadish for me, but i can't stand how he says David Ferrer's name!

    NTRP Rank me (video link included)

    It is hard to make a real opinion without real gameplay videos. Sometimes pretty strokes and shots go AWOL in a match....if this is how you play in a match, 4.5, if you compete at 75% of the level of the video, a strong 4.0.
