I have been playing in flex leagues for a couple of years now, working my way up from winning only one match in my first 3.0 season to winning the city 3.0 tournament to winning only one set my first season in 3.5 to going 4-2 my second season in 3.5 (beating a guy in straight sets who'd previously beat me 6-1,6-1.) All of this progression happened in LeagueTennis. With a sweet $10 season deal they had going this spring, I decided to sign up for UltimateTennis this time. The last time I played Ultimate was last summer, I went a respectable 6-1 with a loss in the second round of the 16-person playoffs in 3.0. However, I won several three setters and my rating was a little shy of causing me to be bumped up. All of this happened around the time I was getting demolished in 3.5 LeagueTennis (as mentioned above.) In the months after that season, I took a few lessons, worked on some weak areas, improved my strengths and found a racquet/string setup that gave me a lot of confidence. Hence, the turn-around and 4-2 record in the fall season of LeagueTennis 3.5. And I think I'm now better than I was in the fall. I sent an email to UltimateTennis telling them this....that I'd finished with a winning record in 3.5 LeagueTennis, along the way beating a guy who regularly does well in Ultimate 3.5. Basically requesting to be bumped up to 3.5...seemed reasonable. I was sent a form copy-and-paste-from-the-website letter response denying my request. So.....here I am. Stuck playing 3.0 for one more season. Should I: (a) Attempt to double bagel every person that I play. (b) Play the whole season with my Jimmy Connors and/or Chris Evert American Star Wilson woodies. (c) Be a cold machine on court and forward my opponent Ultimate's response at the first sounds of "sandbagger." (d) Both a and c (e) Create your own. ???
