I am not going to get any point, further more I am completely out of form and practice. I only started playing 2 weeks ago after a 2 year stop. My tennis background starts when I was born I was always surrounded by tennis players since a young kid, play since 4 until 18.

I don't really care about what other people do and train. I don't use what other people do to gauge how I will do.

If you have that mindset, you will never reach it. The mind is the most powerful muscle in the body.

My only disappointment would be to never get a chance

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

Good luck man!

I've been playing since I was 8, was county standard until I was 15 or so, but stopped playing for 3 years between 16-19, been wishing I kept it up for a few years now - maybe I would have tried to pursue a similar route

Anyway, all the best - obviously keep us updated

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

Very best of luck Groove. The best thing is that you're getting a decent shot at what you want to do.

Good luck dude!

Tough goals but you sound like you have the right mindset to try. Keep us posted on your progress once in a while. And regardless of what happens, I'm sure you'll learn a lot about yourself through the process

Interesting story. I imagine a large % of people can relate to your experience. Thanks for the support!
