Hey everyone. Last year was my first year playing in NTRP tournaments. Here are my results from last year: 2008 3.5 tourney: Won first-round 6-3 6-4 to a guy who never plays in tournament Lost second-round 6-2 6-2 to the guy who won the tourney 3.0 tourney: Won first-round 6-3 7-5 Lost second-round 3-6 7-5 7-6 to a guy who got creamed in the finals Here are my results from this year: 2009 3.5 tourney (in this tourney, the guys who signed up for 3.5 usually play in the "C's" division in our local circuit, and "C's" normally being 3.0 guys) Won first round 4-6 6-1 7-5 Won final round 4-6 7-6 6-1 The tournaments I play in are in a totally different section than I reside in, since the section I reside in doesn't have that many NTRP tournaments, none near me, and they don't have NTRP rankings. I live on the border line basically of the Southern and M i d w e s t sections. My next tournament is going to be next month and it is a Sectional Indoors event. I was thinking about playing 3.0 in that and see how I do. Do you think that playing 3.0 is alright? With me living in a different section and playing in the other, do I have a chance of getting bumped up?
