This is my nigga.

Where does he live? I need to train with him.
He used to live and travel in a van (aka Dustin Brown) all around the country. I met him in Turkey 3 years ago when I was supposed to play bunch of futures (unfortunately I got injured so ended up playing only one match). Really interesting guy, was coaching/stringing rackets at the tournaments so that he could afford this tennis lifestyle for over 10 years. He used to have a few ATP points in doubles but he never got a ranking in singles. He even launched his own clothing brand called "Grinder" or something.

John's youtube channel and blog are even more epic than this thread . Seems like he has not played any futures since last summer. I'm not sure if he retired (he is already 38 or so ) or got injured/currently taking a break.

Mardy Fish!

So let me get this straight, MTF kills me for going after a girl, but when I don't go after a girl, I get criticized also

Interesting, interesting, very interesting. What is his last name? I want to look him up. I sent already a message to his youtube channel, I wanna see what else is going on. If he is 38, he surely has some valuable wisdom with which to impart to me.

don't pretend you don't get what we are saying. this girl handed you a WC, clearly had an interest, was available and in the same location as you were.

the other girl lives hours from you, seldom talks to you, it is to be seen if she's into you. probably banging other dudes.

Look, I am not trying to go around trying to be Wilt Chamberlain

Look at Federer, one woman long term. Nadal? The same. Djokovic? The same. Murray? Well him and Kim have been on and off, but right now they are certainly on.

There is a pattern here. Even Wawrinka is playing better now since he got married/reconciled with his wife.

Re: Johnny Groove vs. Lendale Johnson

in terms of eccentrics, groove v. johnson beats out some of the most intriguing atp match-ups. i mean, on the one hand you got groove with all his antics, and on the other hand you got this man...
