Answer: If a player only plays mixed doubles, it is possible for him/her to play for two years with a self-rating. Mixed doubles starts in the fall and there are no dynamic ratings for mixed doubles. If a player self-rated early in 2012 but only played mixed doubles, he could start the 2013 season with the same self-rating. His 2012 rating based on his mixed doubles results was not published until December of 2012.
Question: Where are the Early Start ratings? When I look up a player I played against on a 7.0 MXD match, it shows him as a 4.5.
