Was looking at the appeals info for the Norcal ESR ratings that just came out: http://www.norcal.usta.com/NorCal/G...ating_Information_2009_Automatic_appeals.aspx Take note of the following line: ** NEW FOR 2010: Appeal is automatically denied for a player with 6 or more match dynamics.** This is saying that if you have played 6 or more rated players across both Adult and Senior seasons, then you can't appeal if you get bumped up. A rated player is either computer rated, or a self-rated that has played enough matches to get a dynamic rating (3 matches, I think). According to someone in the know, this is going to be implemented at the National level for 2010 and is not just for Norcal. Anyone else have any additional info to confirm/deny this? Assuming this is correct, it will severely limit the number of potential appeals... good thing or bad thing?
