What NTRP rating combination works best in USTA League 7.0 mixed?

I wrote a few days ago about different rating combinations in 8.0 mixed and which win more often than others.  I had folks asking about 7.0 mixed too, so here goes.

When a 4.0 male and 3.0 female play a 3.5/3.5 combo, the 4.0/3.0 pair win about 60% of the time.

When a 4.0 female and 3.0 male play a 3.5/3.5 combo, the 4.0/3.0 win about 54% of the time.

Last, when a 4.0 male and 3.0 female play the opposite pair, the 4.0 male and 3.0 female win about 57% of the time.

Other than this last point, the percentages are awfully similar to the 8.0 numbers.

What do you think.  Does this jive with your experience?
