Re: Johnny Groove 1-6, 4-6 vs. Marc Yurgenson (ITF #2,223)

Just stick to your strengths. If Tennis is not your strength no need to go in that. Pick up something you are good at, Get a Girl Get Married and move on... Life is not a Hollywood Movie or a Fancy Novel.

Re: Johnny Groove 1-6, 4-6 vs. Marc Yurgenson (ITF #2,223)

Bottom line is to make it to top 300/200 at least you must have a big serve like De Schepper or Groth and you don't have it, the other option is being an excellent pusher even without serve but you can run 2h30/3h day after day. The example for that would be Daniel Taro but you have a one handed BH so that doesn't help too. You don't have these style of games so what's your gameplan to win matches against top 500 players? Also forgot another option Khaddari is 533 in the world and he is an absolute mug none of his shots land beyond the service line and he still could win an itf this year. For that you need to have a better grunt than Granollers it certainly disturbs the opponents.

Johnny, are you serious that you can't handle this guys serve?!

You should be making mincemeat of this guy, something like 6-2 6-2 or something pretty simple. If you play a consistency game without experimenting or whatever, you could double bagel this guy.

Re: Johnny Groove 1-6, 4-6 vs. Marc Yurgenson (ITF #2,223)

Clay/Hard is pretty common for American tournaments. Highfalutin clubs like to mix clay and hard. Clay usually for the older folks who like it for their knees.

Never understood this need to hurry up and get married. I'm 23 for fuck's sake. Of course I want that, but later in my life, when I've got my shit more together.

As for Hollywood, I'll be acting in movie after my tennis career also

I have to improve EVERYTHING in my arsenal, beginning with my shoulder and serve.

He usually serves much better than that.

This is at the Sunrise Tennis Club, I'll be playing on the green clay, usually they have the women on the hard court.

Not much French, and I HIGHLY doubt they will respond positively, but thank you mate for trying

Re: Johnny Groove 1-6, 4-6 vs. Marc Yurgenson (ITF #2,223)

I notice you have some decentish results at 4.0 level. Why don't you play more events on that level to build up confidence ?

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

Hmm I see you didn't mention the 6-0 6-0 loss in consolation in the last tournament.

Not when I am mere points from winning in the 4.5 level. Besides, when i won that 4.0, I felt: "Ok, now what. That means shit in the long term."

I'm not interested in that feel again.

Pretty sure I mentioned walking onto court mere minutes after finishing my first match and having nothing left to give, and semi-tanking so I could get to work on time later that night.
