I see little evidence he can win more often then not against 4.5s. We have been watching him on tennis troll channel now and he LOST TOWell in the sense as it might not "look" like 4.5 tennis but it beats 4.5 players all the way up to strong 4.5s borderline 5.0s. That well.
Did you read what I wrote? I never said he would beat 5.0s. I said his level is 8.37 UTR which is high 4.5/5.0 (see below) and 5.0s would have an easier time (winning) rather than 4.5s against him.
Playing close and not winning is also an indicator of level. That's how UTR works in the first place.
The 'woman that beat him' got baged second set no? She won in a match tie-break. There was no third set. I hardly call that a 'crush'.
Why would I take that bet? A 10-10.5 UTR against a 8.5? That's like Djokovic vs. some top D1 college kid 13 UTR. He would destroy him. Who would take that bet?
TennisTroll, Old 50 year old, US Open John, an 18 year old female baseliner, - and he beat NYC 4.5. I lived in NYC. 4.5's there are badly out of practice because the weather sucks and its hard to play a lot with regards to court availability. Yes it is impressive that he beats some 4.5s as a 4.5. But it seems that no matter how often he loses - and who he loses to - he has this persistent fan club that overrates his play. He is not going to challenge 5.0s. UTR is just not that accurate..
In fact when I point this out I get accused of bashing the guy. The guy is very good at tennis with awful technique. Kudos to him. But it would not be fun watching him get beat down by the better players at 4.5 - never mind actual 5.0s. There are couple guys on TennisTroll channel that would beat him 6-1, 6-2 on a regular basis, IMHO.
It reminds me of the first Rocky Movie. Despite what people think - Rocky LOST in the first movie. LMAO. MEP made his legend off a LOSS to tennis troll. TennisTroll IMHO is a pretty standard 4.5. Good skills - lacks a bit of power off the ground - decent speed and solid (but not awesome serve). MEP is like the Rocky of tennis.. But here is the truth Mike Tyson would have beat the lights out of Stallone.. Real life is not a movie. And you ain't beating 5.0s with a 3.0 push serve.
