I've just checked Johnny's results. If he's struggling (i.e. getting double bagelled) in 4.5 tournaments, then I reckon I could give him a decent match.

Johnny Groove "doesn't need coaching"?

Guess all those pros must be doing something wrong then.

Groove, can you beat a Colorado high school state quarter-finalist?

I am sure we would. I would not take you lightly. I will be sure to pound you into submission.

Then we will play a tennis match

All my 4.5 matches of late have been ridiculous losses:

1. Johnny Groove vs. Dennis Oliviera, 9/7/13 in Weston. I won the first set 6-4, had chances to get the break in the 2nd, lost a 7 deuce game to lose the break, ended up losing 10-2 in 3rd set supertiebreaker

2. Johnny Groove vs. Mario Rodriguez, 8/31/13 in Sunrise. I had 5-5, a chance to BP to serve for set, couldn't get it done, this one was relatively tame.

3. Johnny Groove vs. Khalid Nahro, 4/27/13 in Boca. This was the worst. I was cruising, 6-0 in the first set, again I had 4 chances in 2 serve games to get the break, didn't get it, ended up losing

4. Johnny Groove vs. 4/6/13 in Plantation, this was even worse. This was the biggest choke of my career, I won the first set 6-3, had 3 MP when he serves at 4-5 in the 2nd, miss 2 returns, and change my mind on a drop shot return, instead of going down the line, I go back CC and he hits into open court. I end up losing set, then I have 4-2, 40-15 in the 3rd, choke that one away, and smashed a spare racquet to smithereens after the match.

Not to mention a 5.0 match vs. Scott Wolff in Sunrise on March 23, when I had 4-3 serving, and also 5-4 serving, 40-30, DF, I end up losing 5-7, 2-6, I also had 2-1 with break in 2nd set.

Not to also mention my practice match loss vs. Akash Israni, my boy, who had won a handful of 4.5 titles this past spring. I won 6-3 the first, lost 0-6 the second, ended up losing 10-6 in the 3rd set breaker.

So in the 4.5, I should have multiple titles already if not for my ridiculous choking.

My coach, when I had one, even told me himself. "Johnny, what you need, I can't give you". "Well, what do I need?" "Experience."



Even when I've gone back to him, he has said to me that I have the shots, it is all about playing tournaments and getting experience and eventually results. Remember I didn't start playing until 15. I have played only like 20 tournaments my entire career, juniors, college, and now.

Are there any other tennis players on the island?

Johnny, it sounds like you could pretty much walk into any club anywhere and bring the hurt in a big way. That's a quick way to build confidence. Register for the year end tournies at various clubs and start adding the hardware. Make a trophy room, etc... A win is a win. For quick boosts, play some inter-gender matches.

One week from today, I'm not sure to play the 4.5, the 5.0 or the Opens. In the 4.5, I ought to win the title, 5.0 at least a finals, Opens, I'd like to win one round.
