4 weeks into my first foray into 4.5 level tennis and I'm sitting at 1-3. I'm probably only playing 4.5 because my club decided to field two teams in that division this year and I'm rounding out one of the rosters. My question for more experienced people is what experience to do most 4.5ers come from? I played a guy week 2 who was in his mid 20's. I find out this past week that he played at a DIII college that plucked him out of eastern europe where he had played in some semi-pro developmental league as a school kid. His 1st serve was cruising in close to 120mph! Week 3 I play and lose to a guy who again I later find out played at a DIII college a couple years ago and teaches tennis at a smaller club! Don't get me wrong I am enjoying it but I didn't realize how many former college level players are at 4.5.
