I think Men's 30 means 30 years old and up.
I thought so at first, but there is nothing younger besides that list when you search for rankings. Only older. 35. 40. 45... Ideas?

That's quite unremarkable.

Maybe there simply isn't a national ranking of that nature? Considering the size of the country it's only state based.

Nobody would have the money to travel the country playing national tournaments

Feels like the beginning for Gasquet-Nadal rivalry, with Gasquet winning the first match aged 14

You know the pattern afterwards

Maybe, but it's impossible for them all to have one, because there are only 135 USA players in the ATP rankings.

Mee for instance, who is above Perez, does not have one.

I've been working mad hard, and my game has completely been reformed. He told me I have made improvements in one week that most other players don't make for 3-5 months. He has also told me that top 100 in the world in 2 years is a very realistic possibility.

Also, Perez gained the ATP point in USA F4, after that list was generated.

True, but it's an indication for the level you need to get on there.

He played the 2nd match in the same day.

It takes pro level training to be able to be fresh for the 2nd match.

It's not enough to train hard for a couple of weeks and then slip back into old, lazy habits. Do you wanna be a futures player or don't you?

Johnny is a full time tennis player, this excuse is unacceptable.
