Tournament schedule for the next few months:

1. Plantation Men's Opens- April 5
2. Coral Spring Men's Opens- April 12
(Not sure if I will play Savannah Georgia CH Q. 6 hour drive and $10 entry fee, which is not bad, and 4/5 years there were byes in the draw so if I go, I figure I'll have an 80% chance of getting in, but we'll see)- April 19
3. Vero Beach Futures Qualies- April 26
4. Orange Park Futures Qualies- May 2
5. Tampa Futures Qualies- May 9
6. Palm Beach Gardens State Closed Men's Opens- May 15
7. Fort Lauderdale National Men's Opens- May 17

Then 2 weeks off, then 14 tournaments in 15 weeks, during which time I'll run out of money somewhere along the line, maybe some Dominos before I start teaching in August.

So we gonna see what's going on.

She probably assumed you were in your mid-30s, which is a reasonable assessment.

Re: Johnny Groove un-retires from tennis

WHAT?



I have a feeling you are trolling us. Anounces retirement, then comes back in a couple of days.

Good luck...you are gonna need it.

Re: Johnny Groove un-retires from tennis

I don't know whether this is real or some serious trolling. Doesn't really matter, because this really cheered me up this morning. I'm looking forward to seeing how Johnny's career develops.

Too young to retire... Good stuff!

Vamos.
I think it's nice that Querry is inspiring young players like you. Who knows, maybe one day you will get to play with your idol.
