    40 and over how to win with four courts

    Might be nothing new, but just got an email from our Section Coordinator (Missouri Valley) that 40+ tie breaker rules are changing mid-season. The old GWP is gone, and D1 as the 3rd level breaker is effective, and will be used in post-season. Personally, I think a ranking order of...

    Worst Tennis Etiquette EVER

    So what is the “rule” on #1? Let’s say I refuse to put up with my opponent taking the point after I call out. He decides it’s his point and starts to serve. I stop play and say we don’t agree on the score, as I called out. We find ourselves in a disagreement on the score, so then what. I feel...

    40 and over how to win with four courts

    Schmke - Regarding your comment on the tie-breakers above; I shared your confusion on the meaning of the Game Winning Percentage breaker, until this weekend.

    Why are USTA’s dynamic ratings a big secret?

    Can someone share where the official USTA ratings are made available, once the new ones come out in a few weeks? On the USTA site, I've never seen anything other than 3.5C, for example. Thank you!

    Granted this is my first nationals, but given the “good” forecast, they better let us play full sets tomorrow. If not, something is very wwwrrooooonnnggg. As many of you know, a short set is unforgiving with a single break of serve. Oh, no adds as well.

    Weather is cooperating and the flights haven’t landed on the courts yet (but trying). Looks like the day will be complete without too much drama. Great crowds!

    FYI, morning forecast has greatly improved. We are supposed to be getting word at 8a if morning play is on.
