I would advise you to go for it.

If you can build yourself up to that level than that is a huge accomplishment, unfortunately that isn't nearly good enough to support yourself financially but it is good enough to get some clout to be a coach later on in life if you do decide to go the coaching route. And I agree coaching lessons kinda sucks, but college tennis or coaching competitive juniors is a different animal because there is the raw competitiveness there that can satisfy a competitive person.
You do make good points here. I, at the very least, want to get some job at an academy somewhere training high level junior players, sure. I could make enough to live on and raise a family with not *too* much difficulty if I make the right decisions.

But to do that, I need at least 1 ATP point, a ranking over 2000. That is the big one. But when I get the first point, I will think I can get two. Or three. I am not just going to get 1 point and then, ok, that's it.

Improving my serve, better net game, and more solidity from the baseline.

Not everybody is trying to be Phil Heath or Jay Cutler.

My ultimate physique will some kind of cross between Bruce Lee and Kenny Rosewall.

http://www.brucelee.com/bruceleecom/...gacy_block.jpg

http://toptenplus.com/wp-content/upl...n-Rosewall.jpg

Not size, but definition. My ultimate playing weight may end up being less than 150 pounds. Very possibly 145 pounds. Like 65 kg as my playing weight.

Are you not entertained?

Now- if you really want to get an ATP point, you're going to have to make some HUGE changes to your game. It's pretty fucking obvious you don't have the talent to do it, even considering you have great fitness and the passion of 5 Nadals. (Not your fault, you started playing at 15).

The only way for you to get anywhere is to play out of your comfort zone. The typical aggressive grinder is so common and there are thousands of people better at it than you. You need to be focusing on troubling your opponents game and picking out their weakness, instead of focusing on playing your own game. Develop a killer forehand slice, ballbash into the center of the court, moonball to an opponent’s forehand and charge the net. 3 underrated tactics.

Either that, or get a sex change. It’s expensive, but you might get into the top 200 that way
I want to be the Johnny of all trades, I want to have the most complete game ever, I've got to improve my serve and volleys, drop shots and lobs. I am only 1.75 m tall, so I will never have the serve of Karlovic, but there are players like Grosjean and T. Johansson, under 6 foot tall players who serve pretty good.

I want my game to be tricky as fuck, weird spins, outright power when needed, I want my game to be able to do it all.

Yes. And it's quite an effective troll attempt.
At this point, perhaps, but we gonna see.

No trolling, but do be sure to check out Part 1:

Trolling isn't subtle when you simply type the most ridiculous things you can think of in an elaborate live journal like post.

Johnny Groove, strength is not directly proportional to weight. You could quite easily bench 50kg 50 times at 70kg body weight. Bruce Lee is case in point, he was very strong but also very light.

And yes, you're quite entertaining. I don't read this section enough. Not sure how serious you are though. There were videos of you playing before and you weren't very good. A competent club player, certainly, but nothing else. That makes me believe that you might be taking the piss.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

So can I. I was doing 3 sets of 10, 55 kg.

1 rep, I dunno, I've never done, maybe 70 kg? I can always be stronger.

Well whatever you decide to do, good luck to you.

If you're desperate enough to become a pro, I'm sure you can find a long living in tennis one way or another.

Just enjoy yourself, playing matches competitively on a regular basis is fun anyway. Do whatever makes you happy.

You might actually be the best player on MTF, yeah. I'm a 5.0 but I don't think I can come close to beating you.

Although it's a bit sad that everyone on MTF would get routined by a woman, I'm happy it's by you
