Re: Top 100 in 2 years? My coach thinks so

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...

Why go to Czech Republic when there several futures in Brazil, unless of course you are not from Argentina.

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.

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.

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

Thanks mate

Re: Top 100 in 2 years? My coach thinks so

Just one thing, do you know how many people in the world train daily and have done this for years and still cant be in top 500? Some cant even get an ATP point. Top100 is too much of a goal.

And you are in the same boat right, what gives you confidence that you are going to get your ATP point, what is your tennis background? do you expect to make a career out of it ?

I thought Excalibur played golf

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.
Somewhere out there, there is a homeless person who once took betting advice from GSMnadal
