Is there any one thing your coach is really good at coaching? Like a speciality.
A specialty? I would imagine it is his experience. He has coached Andrei Pavel to the top 15, and several women into the top 20 WTA. He has had 40 years in the business.
I am curious, give us a sense of what is your tennis background, how old were you when you started what has been your best tennis victories momments. Did you get to play High school tennis, did you play USTA tennis are you a 4.5 5.0 level of tennis etc.
First time I ever watched tennis was 2001 Wimbledon, because I liked to say "Ivanisevic"
I followed casually the next few years until about 2004 when I really go into it. I had played baseball and racquetball when I was younger, and picked up tennis at 14. I remember watching Roddick lose to Pim Pim at the 2004 USO. After that I said to myself: "USA needs a new tennis star. Why not me?"
So I trained myself the next few years, hitting on the walls and learning from youtube videos and online articles. I have played thousands of matches, and my best one was a match I won 8-6 in the 5th one time during college
i played on my high school team and USTA when I was younger, and recently 2 future qualies back in January. Scores? 0-6 1-6 and 0-6 0-6
I am at least a 5.0.
2014 Wimbledon R1: Groove Dude def. Roger Federer 5-7 6-3 4-6 6-4 6-2!
Also, watch out for me, bitch!
2016 Roland Garros R1: Me def. Rafael Nadal 6-0 6-0 7-6 <------ pity set.
Being serious, good luck. I may hate you a lot, but it'll be interesting to have an MTF poster being a huge player! Hopefully X joins you!
If Nadal lasts until 2016
Yay! all the best, Jon!
Thanks for the support!
and yeah jon man...
best to remove yourself from all bullshit and negativity if you really want something... american futures qualy draws are tough enough as it is, 128 at times, so your condition is tough enough as it stand without shit getting inbetween your ears... surround yourself with some hard working people who are straight enough to not feed you the truth and not what you want to hear...
good luck with the first point...
Good advice, mate, thanks much
do you have any video of you playing?
I am travelling in 4 hours to Czech Republic to finally play my first match futures level. Maybe I'll see you in Roland Garros final one day
No video yet, the next few weeks perhaps.
