Yes I knew that 1115 in Florida ranking was familiar. That was my rank at the end of 2013. Now as you see it is 201, and will go up to roughly 196 in the state whenever the new rankings come out. Which is supposed to be every month but sometimes they do it by 2 months, sometimes by 2 weeks, its weird.
Why is your fitness so awful? How will you ever climb the rankings if you can't go 3 sets without being utterly impotent in the next round?
I have no problem to go 5 sets, against the same player, I actually prefer.
I do have a problem to go 3 sets, and then have to play another match where the first guy had a bye.
Yeah, Johnny's ineligible for a national ranking.
He must play national open tournaments for that. So, about his level. He's here:
I'll be playing a USTA National in May in Fort Lauderdale.
Yep, that's the one.
Feels like the beginning for Gasquet-Nadal rivalry, with Gasquet winning the first match aged 14
You know the pattern afterwards
Yep I do want to incorporate some of these when I am doing the Dustin Brown van travel in 2015.
He played the 2nd match in the same day.
It takes pro level training to be able to be fresh for the 2nd match.
Not so much pro level training, but at least have the other guy also have a tough match. So we are both tired, it will be more fair of a match.
Why did Johnny have to play 2 matches in a day?
And was the child rested? That's so unfair!
I know right.
This is the schedule in these tournaments. The whole tournament needs to be done in 3 days: Fri-Sun. Sometimes in 2.
Some start Friday, but most run Sat-Sun-Mon. This one probably will run actually into Tuesday since its a 128 draw.
Is this true? Does Johnny really train and play tennis full time? How can he afford it?

You blow hot and cold with this and for what I can see, your fitness is atrocious, you should be ready to play 5 sets in grueling conditions if you want to do Davis Cup, you just can't grind it out for 3 sets and end up with an empty tank.
Fitness is the key here and it seems like you're more interested in Natalie and other things than in improving that aspect.
I love you man, I really do but unless you're willing to give yourself completely to tennis, you will never get past the first round of a futures qualy.
I have no problems to go 5 sets, I love best of 5.
But its unfair that one guy has to go to war for 3 hours while the other guy is brought in like a prince.
He already did
The way I got it,most of Groove's off court training is based on weight lifting and he's not doing enough cardio.
It was. Until very recently. 2 weeks ago or so I haven't lifted since and have been doing more long distance running. I think it really helped in that 3rd set in the 1st match.
