She was flirting with you. Is she hot?

Even making adjustments in work schedules just for someone's hobby is a bit much to ask for especially for a minimum wage pizza delivery job.

I don't think it's that difficult for a part timer. I said I needed to work earlies on a Wednesday to play Tennis in the evening and it was granted. I am not sure of Groove's contract whether he is full time or part time.

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

Dominos has been pretty good for the most part in terms of schedules which is why I've stayed here so long and not gotten a higher paying job that wouldn't give me 3-5 hrs a day to train.

And User Name, fuck you. This ain't no God damn hobby, motherfucker. You don't dedicate your life to a fucking hobby. You don't spend all your time playing, strength training, video analyzing, working to pay for, and sleeping to recover for a fucking hobby. 24/7/365 life dedication is not a fucking hobby. Tennis is love, is life, is death, is passion. I fucking live for this shit. I fucking die for this shit.

This ain't no God damn hobby, motherfucker

Agreed. Just imagine a situation where the manager has 10 guys working for him. One likes to play some tennis on Mondays, one collects stamps on Wednesdays and one insists on eating doughnuts with grandpa on Friday evenings. Just doesn't work like that.

Once you reach a certain professional level, you can start saying stuff like "I'll be taking the Friday off", or "I'll leave early on Tuesday". But getting there requires hard work.

If your job is to deliver pizza for example, you pretty much do what the boss tells you, or he will replace you with someone else.

The easier the task is to master, the easier you are to replace

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

Re: Vol. 2: JGTC: Summer of Groove; Highlight video bonanza



I had to comb 2 months of footage for that, it isn't as much as it seems

Yes that one was the best, I got a short high ball from a serve, I hit it clean in the center of the racquet, and the winner he had no chance. Other times I may mishit the ball but it is still effective. Even the famous one, the flicka da wrist, was a slight mishit.

Plenty of backhands I hit with feet on the ground, traditional, but many shots I hit with my weight slightly off the ground at least, some a full jump.

Players push into the ground so hard and leave their feet on the impact on the FH 99% of the time, why not do it on the BH?

Biggest is the recovery after the shot. Many times I just watch the shot and do not recover for the next one

Schedule for tomorrow

9-11, teaching the U-10 girls again but they are good
11-1, practice serve and if anyone wants to hit, leave for gym
Arrive to gym at 130
Leave gym at 340
Back home at 4, shower, change
5-10, Dominos, get to sleep quick, teach again 9-11 Wednesday

So we gonna see

Who is doing all these coaching workshops, playing tournaments left and right, uploading videos, transforming my body? Who is starting to break through and get lessons? ME. That's who.

What the fuck have you done?
hahahahaha Groove talking out of his ass, the same person who WON a future's qualifying match and then did not show up for the next RD the ONLY time he ever had managed to get into a future's qualifying event (bear in mind he got in for free because no one else showed up and the lobby girl said 'hey how about him, let's let him play, he brought us that free pizza)

don't go around telling people what you've 'done'. you blew off the highest RD you've ever seen to run back and talk to a girl who in your head you had some imaginary relationship with

I'm all for goals and positivity but when someone like Prodigy calls you out for not having the balls to actually back up your talk you have no room to get pissy and berative about it. the reality is he's right, you are avoiding the reality of delusional goals. you talk a lot but if you were anywhere near the level it takes to win qualifying rounds in challenges or future events then you would be willing to drive a bunch of hours to go play some events, as risky as it may be. you've been in a 'financial issue' section of your life for quite a while and it's not something that's going to magically change

'coaching workshops'. god damn I hope for their sake no other players are taking your technique advice as a serious thing. I also love how 'meeting Kyrgios' somehow speaks volumes for what you have accomplished

oh my god Prodigy I read a post of yours on here and thought you had the right idea, but don't encourage the delusional attitude. a MAJOR pizza chain company, even an individual franchise, is not going to magically put money into an amateur sports player for absolutely no reason
