I for one think it's pretty impressive to be roughly as good as a 12 year old Gasquet.

I consider pretty depressing but also amusing that a guy expecting to make tennis his job and break through ATP tour wouldn't be able to win "Les Petits As" at 22 years old.

The guy I beat in the 1st round was ranked #37 in the state of Florida in the 4.5's, and I'm pretty by making the SF, I am going to gain 50 points and jump from 152 in the state in the 4.5's to #95 or so in the state

By contrast, I am ranked #549 in the state in the Men's Opens, the true ranking, really. A bit of perspective, the #1 in the state in the Men's Open is Matt Bocko, former #400 ATP in 2010, #9 in the state is Joe Cadogan, ranked 1351 ATP currently, and most of the other top 10-20 in the state either currently or formerly have had rank or are playing futures.

So its a long way to go

I was getting all hyped up reading this thread, all the talk about top 100 and playing Futures, kinda anticlimactic to discover you're only a 4.5

I don't mind Groove keep us in touch with his latest results (a bit an attention-whorism attitud however) but the word career in the thread title is a lie. You have no career, replace it by hobby, leisure time activity, adventure or something like that. You are lying to us and to yourself and that's not a good thing. I hope you won't take my post as an offense, it is not.
