Hey Johnny, I finally found this thread.
Ignore the haters, they're just bitter they are not following their dreams like you. There's nothing that pisses people off more than to see someone else doing something they'd love to do, but don't have the guts to try. You're young, you should go for it man.
Anyway, I'll be checking in here to see how you're getting on.
bitter? maybe in some cases, but what you said is just not true, ANYONE could do what Groove is doing, pay the stupid USTA membership fee and then you can sign onto events like Groove does as long as you pay the entry fees. you just need a few bucks and plenty of free time to do what he does. although anyone who did not have their brain in the clouds wouldn't bother, because the fees to get into the tournaments and possibly avoiding a regular job would make the $$$$$ add up, expenses to amount up
ALSO NO. no one says that Cilic is young anymore! Groove is like 24. dinosaur age for tennis! at least in terms of where he is. with his game I think everyone would prefer if he did well, but the haters are only hating because of how bizarre and dramatic Groove exaggerates his potential
I MEAN FOR GODS SAKE I THINK HE RETIRED (unofficially, officially, I don't know?) LAST WEEK and then had some kind of revelation
with all of that said I can't wait for Groove to break into the top 100 and see his face on the ATP homepage banner
