I've been playing USTA 3.5 for a couple of seasons as I return to tennis after a back injury and I keep running into former Div II and III college players. The competition is great and a lot of fun, but is Div II and III tennis really equivalent to a USTA 3.5 ranking? I thought 3.5 meant average, as in middle of the bell curve. Most of my 3.5 buddies wouldn't stand a chance against these guys. I guess during my leave of absence, the curve shifted right and average got a lot better. If this is true, I'm really ticked off, cause I could have played college tennis, at least based on these guys current ranking.
