That's hardly a gameplan, Johnny. these things must happen every time you step on court, regardless of who you play against. Number three is something that happens if you think about it during match.

I don't think so. I mean, you have entrepreneurs who mortgage their house and put all their fortunes in their business... which isn't smart! You can still give a 100% effort, but not sacrifice your life in the process. Not saying that you're doing this, but having a backup plan is no sign of weakness. I remember you talking about teaching history, is that still on the table?

yeah teaching history is a backup plan, I have one more class to graduate in the spring. But teaching history would just be another Dominos. Another job I can't stand, that is taking time and energy away from tennis training.

In order to do this, you must make something of a leap of faith.

My analogy would be that you make a leap of faith, but make sure you have something relatively soft to land on! And it seems that you do, good

why? most girls want security in their future, and it sounds cliche and superficial, but the reality is if you want to start a family and things (early 20s, looking ahead to late 20s) then it certainly would be nerveracking if your guy is unwilling to do anything except tennis and is not a prodigy

no, no, we never even technically broke up. We trained together with the same coach for a long time, but I always took it very slow with her. Then, last summer, right when we were starting to get a little bit serious, she had to move away

Well, luckily she is:

A- A few years younger than me, which gives me some time, but not too much time, to get my shit together.
B- A tennis player herself who also has pro aspirations that have taken big hits, her results are similar to mine of late, actually she hasn't played a tournament in some time.
C- A fellow Sagittarius like me, with a thirst for adventure.

Besides, I don't want to start a family until well into my 30's, and she will still be late 20's, which will be perfect to start the family. To think of starting a family while the man is in his 20's still, unless he is rich, is unfathomable to me, personally.

I mean, my father had me at barely 25 years old. That would be like me starting a family NEXT YEAR

I have learned, and will take my time.

god she was mega pretty, its hard to remember sometimes. she's not terrible looking now by any means, but obviously getting older and having kids naturally not as athletic.
she was stunning back when they were both playing though!
