no idea what 4.5 exactly is in comparison to Euro standards, but if Johnny is 4.5, then i must be more than that.

Which isn't bragging, i have no big dreams about tennis, but i believe i have an objective view over myself and i can estimate realistically.

There are some younger guys on our tour just like Johnny, they have some game, but they have issues like - no patience, problems with shorter balls, no slice, weak defense, weak second serves and all they have is a 30% first serve and good ground shots, which aren't enough for a competitive match.

It looks fairly equal at warm up an it ends in bakeries. That's just how it happens and it's not an unusual thing.

4.5 is a euro standards measure actually

i was about to write that i don't even know Euro standards except for the Swiss one (or at least how it was in the past).

I would be an R3-R2 in Switzerland (in case they keep the 90s way of ranking players..)

Apparently Bulgaria isn't relevant enough

R3/R2 is 4.5/4.0

You wouldn't even beat Johnny, let alone double bagel him

I'm actually probably mistaking my potential Swiss ranking.

I can see Johnny playing with my eyes and i watch this level of tennis week in, week out, playing tournaments every week end.

6th in my age group this year (in the official ranking).

So i guess i'm an N in Swiss, i haven't played there since 1993, so my initial estimation is probably wrong.

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).

Draw is out.

http://tennislink.usta.com/Tournamen....aspx?T=128903

I have a bye in the opening round and will be playing Marc Bell at 1 PM tomorrow. Lucky for me, that bye. Light practice today, work from 530-930 tonight, light shift, get in bed relatively early, prepare to peak for tomorrow at 1. Gonna be a tough match, Bell is a very good player, ever though I've never seen him play and he has no results, but still gonna be a tough match, I gotta play my best to have chances, no?

it is literally impossible. 101%

maybe if you were extremely rich and could hire a team of experienced tennis professionals, coaches, hitting partners, etc., then it might be like only 99.9% impossible

maybe Dominoes managers get paid OK? are people buying a lot of pizzas in florida? might want to stick that out

I fucking love pizza
Impossible, eh? Well, we gonna see. Dominos GM's get paid 50-60K per year, but I have ZERO desire to do that shit. I'd rather work in an academy, making half of that to start and be much happier.

I still think it will happen.

The records in that regard are held by players from the 70s and 80s, nowadays i believe Raonic is among the late starters, smth like 9yo.

You can't succeed starting after 10, max 11yo.
Well we gonna see. Tilden didn't do shit in tennis until 26-27, got beaten in his college days, but then again that was in the 20's.
