What is a Level 3 tennis player?
Level 3.0. You are fairly consistent when hitting medium-paced shots, but are not comfortable with all strokes and lack execution when trying for directional control, depth, or power.
4.0. Intermediate-Advanced Player: Has dependable strokes, including directional control and depth on both forehand and backhand sides plus the ability to use lobs, overheads, approach shots and volleys with some success. May be starting to master the use of power and spins (though tends to over-hit difficult shots).
The 3.5 is simply trying to keep the ball in play. The 3.5 player will win points and games by staying in rallies and letting the 4.0 make mistakes. Whereas the 4.0 will win games by forcing errors and hitting more winners.
