Fitness is the key here and it seems like you're more interested in Natalie and other things than in improving that aspect.
I love you man, I really do but unless you're willing to give yourself completely to tennis, you will never get past the first round of a futures qualy.
He already did

The way I got it,most of Groove's off court training is based on weight lifting and he's not doing enough cardio.

Yes I knew that 1115 in Florida ranking was familiar. That was my rank at the end of 2013. Now as you see it is 201, and will go up to roughly 196 in the state whenever the new rankings come out. Which is supposed to be every month but sometimes they do it by 2 months, sometimes by 2 weeks, its weird.

I have no problem to go 5 sets, against the same player, I actually prefer.

I do have a problem to go 3 sets, and then have to play another match where the first guy had a bye.

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

Challenger level
Futures level
National level
Regional level
I'll be playing a USTA National in May in Fort Lauderdale.

Yep I do want to incorporate some of these when I am doing the Dustin Brown van travel in 2015.

It takes pro level training to be able to be fresh for the 2nd match.
Not so much pro level training, but at least have the other guy also have a tough match. So we are both tired, it will be more fair of a match.

I know right.

Some start Friday, but most run Sat-Sun-Mon. This one probably will run actually into Tuesday since its a 128 draw.

I know right, actually I hadn't even started yet. He is 14 and 2 months, I started after USO 04 which would be 14 and 9 months or so.

Nat

I have no problems to go 5 sets, I love best of 5.

But its unfair that one guy has to go to war for 3 hours while the other guy is brought in like a prince.

It was. Until very recently. 2 weeks ago or so I haven't lifted since and have been doing more long distance running. I think it really helped in that 3rd set in the 1st match.

Long distance is good,but you also need short sprints,Hiit,direction changing and that kind of stuff.

To me, you get enough training changing directions when you play.

Endurance running gives you the lungs for a long match like the one I had. If needed, I could have gone 5 against him, definitely.

I watched my first Johnny Groove video.
Your technique is kind of special/strange. The serve is No-Go you have to fix this... If you really want to get better results you have to push your body forward, when you hit your groundstrokes. You tend to step back. Are there any videos of volleys from you?

Oh wait, that's just for Florida.
clueless there are many many thousands of players better than Groove in the States. hell there are probably thousands of senior level players (40+ age) who are better than him

that said maybe he can magically improve all facets of his game and change this
