What is the difference between a 3.5 and 4.0 tennis player?

Between 3.5 and 4.0, the difference is 100% based on percentage of unforced errors. I would say the 4.0 can reliably make 4 or 5 shots reliably per rally, with few double faults. The 3.5 still makes too many unforced errors, often inexplicably. Also, depth and spin should start to be on your radar.
