First set, first game, I served, won the first point, 15-0. Then, DF, I could not push off with my legs. 15-15. Next point, good rally, 30-15. Next point, another DF, nothing in the legs, 30-30. He ends up breaking me. In the first set, I was to 30 or at least one deuce in every single game, even his serve games. I was a step slow, and my changing directions was very poor. I could not do the quick movements needed to adjust to the shots.

The 2nd set I was toast. I could not push off at all, and after he broke me in the opening game, I thought to retire, but I played it out. At the handshake, I told him I had nothing left after the first round, and he said: "Yeah, they were telling me! You were done, man". Lol, even he knew it.
Why is your fitness so awful? How will you ever climb the rankings if you can't go 3 sets without being utterly impotent in the next round?

And by the way.

In the mean time, Johnny boy, you're 201

Yeah, Johnny's ineligible for a national ranking.

He must play national open tournaments for that. So, about his level. He's here:

Challenger level
Futures level
National level
Regional level

So he's not almost top 1000 in the states, he's just outside the top 200 in Miami?

Yeah. And if we add 200 for each state in the US (maybe except Hawaii and Alaska), we get about 9600 players potentially better ranked (not necessarily better) than him.

That can't be right, you're out of your league here.

I think Men's 30 means 30 years old and up.

Nothing. In terms of national associations of tennis anyway. Some countries, like the US have district rankings. Like Johnny is in Region 6 of Florida. But this is not universal, Romania doesn't even have regional rankings, although it does have regional tournaments. Of course, below that is the amateur level. Romania has "Tenis Partener" for instance, where anyone can play. I think the US has the National Tennis Rating Program as equivalent:
