i know over 30 complete amateurs (me included) who'd double bagel Johnny without much effort even.
things are not optimistic Johnny, don't quit your job, you seem to have little idea of the real level of guys around the top 1000.
As harsh as it might sound - you have no chance, it's just impossible.
Don't get high hopes on the trolling of some mugs here, things are absolutely irreversible, it's way too late.
This kind of level you should have at 12 and work twice a day, everyday, with a competent and devoted coach, and it's still a 1% chance you make it to the top 500. 1%.
So keep playing, it's no harm, on the contrary it's very good for you in every possible aspect, but get real and re-define your life goals, coz while you're deluding about tennis, life and youth are passing by.
I'm serious. At least start thinking of a plan B, like for real, coz this one ain't happening.
