Why did you take a set off Brent and not the younger 4.5 player(Justin)?Want to see what the national #1 and #2 ranked 75 year olds look like? Check this out. Jimmy Parker, in the red, had more gold balls than anyone else I know of. Moves like a kid and has a killer drop shot.I agree with the later posters that guys like Brent Abel, and a lot of the top seniors, would beat most of the 4.5 players out there. I'm a senior whose played these top guys and I can tell you this - for some reason, you never quite get set enough to execute that great game plan you had to pick on their one-handed slice backhand, or their supposed lack of mobility. They dictate the action more than you can imagine.
Does it come down to pure foot speed?
