More like misaligned with reality

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

Re: Johnny Groove Tennis Career (Retiring for real this time)

Listen dude, I had respect for you, I was a supporter, I think this thread and everything going on on MTF about your career and stuff was great. Your decision to quit is legit and everything.

But you fucking can't say couple of weeks ago that tennis is your life and then say today it no longer makes you happy. You can't write the post and then quit like less in a week after that. For that, I lost a lot of respect for you, you son of a biscuit clown. Don't think I judge you, just wanted to say this.

Just one more thing:

Fucking seriously Groove. It was clear you weren't training the proper way and weren't going in the right direction.

Already said gl & everything in your first retirement,so,would be nice that you come back again.

Re: Johnny Groove Tennis Career (Retiring for real this time)

It's true it would probably be a better route to try and get real coaching than just practice constantly

Re: Johnny Groove Tennis Career (Retiring for real this time)

MTF will now start accepting nominations for the next Johnny Groove - we could do an American Idol style casting call, and they let them loose on the futures circuit. Strong writing skills a must.

You can catch Johnny's pledge for a masters degree on Twitter. @JohnnyGroove420

Mark Lenders banged your girlfriend, I'm sorry to tell you that mate.

Re: Johnny Groove Tennis Career (Retiring for real this time)

Can you please ask organisers to put this in the speakers at the end of your match and film the whole thing?
