-Me taking part in my first MTF contest, blasting through the draw until facing a candidate to GOAT MTF clown with no ACC title yet in Start da Game, getting off to a tremendous start but eventually losing by a hair.

Young upstart losing to legend en route to missing resumé piece. - check

-Del Potro getting a dose of reality, getting crushed by Hewitt in the next Slam, three routine sets.
-Mark Lenders getting routed by Hewitt =Legend in Popcon. 39-14.

Back to reality. - check

I hope the symmetry continues with me winning the next big event, and then breaking my wrist and beginning to type with only one hand.

You will be peaking in the next 2/3 years imo.

I don't mind though because you're doing a great job on here making friends with people from different fanbases, being creative (I don't even know how to make a youtube video ), posting good tennis commentary, bringing the lols... all without trashing anyone.

There was some silly thread here a while back about how all the great posters are gone/banned from MTF, but looking at the names left in the Popcon draw I'd say we are doing just fine.

Thanks and well said.
