Is a tree as a rocking horse
An ambition fulfilled
And is the sawdust jealous?

OK... I know Ill probably get 'ribbed' for this question...but since I have never actually "played" tennis... I'm at a lost.  What exactly is the difference between the points for players... like 4.5-5.5, etc.? :confused1:

1.0 is the bottom or a beginner (you) and your boy Fed is at the top of the scale at 7.0.  The scale goes by 0.5's so you have 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, 2.5, 3.0 and so on up to the top at 7.0.

Wow!  Thanks for the info!  That helps a lot.  And I would classify me as a -1.0 player! Until I really pick up the racket, I can't be a 1.0! :rofl_2:

Actually Dallas what OSU said is wrong. The numbers represent the average number of shots per rally you "can" hold in a match. A 1.0 player will make only one shot, and a 5.0 player will make about 5 shots.
Another way of looking at it is, its the number of OMG shots one can make in a given game (on average). A 5.0 player can pull of 5 OMG shots - maybe an ace, a superb volley, forehand or something like that. A 1.0 player can get the serve over the net and goes Oh my God! and collapses, if a 1.0 player can resist collapsing he can become a 2.0 and beyond.
