Probably because I'm also one if the few people who actually plays tennis and therefore has a rating

But yeah, the level of play can really differ from area to area. Although I'm probably at least the epitome of a Dutch 5.0 player since I became one eight years ago and never went up or down in the meantime.

Do you have a similar rating system like us? Here your dynamic rating changes after every match you play. Here a 5.0 is a 4 and 5.5 a 3, so let's say you're a 4.23 and beat a 3.85, you get a 2.85 and your rating improves, while your opponent gets a 5.23 and sees a decrease in his rating.
