What a win for the DRC's finest! Knocking off world #971. There will be a Congolese in the ATP in 2 weeks!

Passion or drama does not equal quality. They can put a lot of heart in it but in the end it's still a shitfest

As opposed to the ATP's fake tennis? :confused:

Ah yes, the Futures circuit, where players always give their all, never fix, and never tank. And play REAL TENNIS(TM)
i find it better going to some future with some of my players than madrid open to see the top 10 guys ;)
and if you went to more futures, you would appreciate them too. they are epic! deserve a visit, really

I absolutely would love to. Unfortunately, the closest one is 5 hours away by car from where I live. Same with Challengers. Welcome to life in the US Midwest.

I haven't but that's not because i was not interested in it but because i didn't have the chance to do it :shrug: My town in Romania will never have a tennis event (not even a futures one) and i didn't really bother to travel in other towns for futures events

go to a division 1 NCAA match. Where do you live? Plenty of college players play futures and make quarter and semi runs. Even mediocre college players can qualify for futures and wina round here and there.

Well, that's not to say I never see that level of tennis live. I live in the great and unpredictable as fuck state of Michigan :)

you could then go to Ann Arbor and see Michigan play. They have produced Evan King and Jason Jung, upper future low challenger level play. Also Michigan State had a player (John Patrick Mullane) make an unexpected run to the quarters in a future event. There's some good stuff. Even Western Michigan has Nadin Indre from Romania that can do some damage

and then when these schools play visiting schools like Ohio State you could see players like Conor Smith, Devin McCarthy, Blaz Rola, Peter Kobelt, Chase Buchanan etc. and that's just one visiting school
