Been playing USTA for 30 years. Generally very competitive. Usually play court 2 or 3 doubles. Very good win record in 3.5. Move to Columbus Ohio. Been playing for 2 years. I play last court if I am lucky. Have had some double donut losses, first in my Career. I am playing with and against many 4.0-4.3 in my opinion. The 3.5 USTA league in our area is extremely tough for a true 3.5 like myself. In addition our team won the sectionals last year, played in Dayton Ohio and our strong team did not win one match in 3 days of playing! Yesterday the ratings came out for the 2 teams at our club. The team I am on had 7 of 11 players rated up. The other team had 8 rated up. Looks like a shakeup to me to a truer 3.5 league. If so I hope its not just in the Mid West USTA.
