That's an impressive singles record. Do the USTA matches in Atlanta happen on weeknights like they do in USTA Eastern? Were any of your USTA matches played in the afternoon in conditions similar to that of your match against travlerajm ?Well I can address part of this:
The 14-1 in question actually spans 3 calendar years-
Mid Nov-Dec 2019: 4-0
2021 (through Feb): 4-0
I was "only" 7-5 in singles in 2019, so no bump there. In 2020 there were no year end ratings adjustments, so 6-1 may as well be 1-6 from a ratings standpoint. 2021 is TBD. I'm also 2-2 in USTA doubles since 2019.
Our USTA team won the 4.5 District for Atlanta last season and went to the State finals. I was 4-1 in the regular season and 3-0 in the District playoffs playing Singles. People can decide for themselves if that's a "weak team."
Regarding what's on video- comparing exhibition matches that are purely for fun against USTA matches that actually count for ratings and playoffs is like comparing an NFL preseason game to a late regular season game with major playoff implications, at least as far as my approach to them goes.
EDIT: one more question, were all these matches played in the 18+ category, or were some of these in the 40+ age group?
