You know you're in trouble when Becuzzi's service motion is more fluent and effective than yours. Practicing serves isn't really useful when everything about your technique is wrong.

I think you should try and make it in Hollywood for your next project, should be entertaining.

Re: Johnny Groove Tennis Career

Johnny I can feel your agony too.

My advice is to give it a final push this season. Of course you will never be a top 400 player, but if you enjoy the game and wanna be competitive on the futures level then give it a try.
But also think about what you gonna do for living after your tennis "career". You are from Florida, so there are many options I think (including adult industry you fancy so much ).

i won my first singles tournament 2 weeks ago

5 matches, one day, 3 consecutive really good opponents (lost today in 1/8 to the guy i won the final against two weeks ago 7-5 in the TB..), huge satisfaction

not today though..

Amazing you've been playing this long and still serving like this.
Yes, cousin leng jai, you are right. I am trying too much for the kick toss, and going overboard. I served better today, and will attempt another video on my improvements on Monday, so we gonna see. I worked today to get the toss more to the right, but still needs work. It is tough to change 10 years of a certain muscle memory in a day. So we gonna see.

I dunno, baby. I still believe I can be much much more than a 400 player. I may not have much time left, but we gonna see, I'm gonna give it all I got these next few months, and we gonna see what's going on.

You know, the more I think about what I want to do other than tennis, the more my mind settles back on the fact that I MUST make the tennis happen. I can deduce that whatever job I am at, I will always dream about playing and the lifestyle of the top pro. I gotta make this happen.

As for the porno thing, I mean it may be fun, for a little while, but it would eventually get tiring, imo. And how fulfilled would I be?

Trying hard to get that toss more to the right, succeeding slowly, ever so slowly. Toss still drifting a bit too far left. Overall some very good serves in here, but not satisfied yet. Gotta toss it more into the court I think, maybe more body turn, even more knee bend, paying attention to the ball right at contact, using the wrist correctly on take back and to contact, for fuck’s sake, keeping that left arm up.

I think gradually I am making some progress in this video from the last one, but more work to do. I think as I work on my neck muscles and open them up, I am feeling more free in all of my shots, but especially the toss, and keeping a close eye on the ball during the serve, and being able to bend the body and still look up at the ball, and then twisting into the shot, all requires a strong neck to stabilize the body. Also need to work on getting the ball closer to the lines. Many of my serves are landing too central in the box. In the end, I practiced until I couldn't see anymore.

We getting there.

Most likely no, I am swamped with school these days, at least until May 1, when I graduate. One day, yes, especially after I write, direct, and star in the movie about my life. But perhaps a tease montage in the coming months would also be fun to make. Delivering pizzas, getting stiffed for a tip, cleaning dishes till 2 AM, injuries, setbacks, everything.

Something like these:

Or this, the best montage ever:

What do you mean? All that's standing in his way between banging Mateya is getting Seppi to join the action. Shouldn't be that difficult

I bet he's trying to get a hold of him 24/7, no wonder his career isn't taking off
