    The Captain Confessional

    Would love to really see what this roster looked like. I cant imagine these middle of the road 4.0 teams are better than 4.5 and 5.0 National teams that werent overly loaded with 20-something D1 and Futures players. Plus if this was really how your team was built, how did it feel to really cheat...

    Only 1 singles for Nationals 40+ :(

    If #1 doubles becomes worth two poibts in the PPP format that may eliminate teams splittingvthe 5.0s unless they have a really strong 4.5 to play at 1 doubles. Sent from my SM-N975U using Tapatalk

    USTA League Nationals start in four days

    That singles match finished about 2 minutes after Texas went up 3-1 but the guys playing singles didnt know the team match was over yet i dont believe. Ronan was down 0-5 in the first and lost it 3-6 and then down 1-3 in the second set before winning that set 6-4. Super was 10-8. Great battle...

    Self rated 3 strikes question

    Hey all, I can't find the answer to this question in writing so I am hoping someone can point me in the right direction... I coach a lady who self-created at 3.0. She is playing in a 3.5 league and just got her third strike and bumped up to a 3.5S rating. Does she start over with 0 strikes at...

    Retired matches and dynamic rating

    Does anyone officially know how a retired match will effect a dynamic rating? My last two singles wins (one against a guy who was a D1 AA and rarely if ever loses) were to guys retiring before the match was complete? I know USTA really stresses completing matches at Nationals so it doesn't mess...

    hit someone in the head, feel bad

    Had this happen at 9.0 Nationals this year. It was cold and windy and the lob was carrying deep into my court, I knew where the woman was at and she moved while i was in the air and I caught the ball a little late. I hit her pretty hard in the mouth/nose area. I felt terrible. Her lips swelled...

    Mixed doubles: "but what do the guys get out of it?"

    No truer statement has ever been said about mixed. I say this all the time. I love mixed. I get to play with my wife (not this year since she got bumped) but at 9.0, everyone on the court can hold their own and there is a unique mix of strategy that differs from men's or women's doubles. Love...
