Another brutal loss for Groove. After losing 6-0, 6-3 to recently released out of prison Bryant Mohns in the first round of the main draw, Jonathan Morgan lost in straight sets to 59 year old Steven Kaplan in the first round of the consolation draw. This is a great confidence booster for Kaplan coming off of his first round double bagel loss, as he had not been competitive in any of his local first round Men's 50s and Men's 55s events coming into today.

Here were Kaplan's last five main draw results coming into today:

Groove already in contention for ATP's most improved player of the year. From 0 games to 10 games. :D Won't be surprised if he ends up with positive H2H against Fedalovic. This groove guy is talented. :bowdown::bowdown:

Groove should hold his head up high after this tight contest. Tie-breaks can go either way.

I too was beaten by a senior during inter-club play. I was at my absolute peak and he had a limp.
I went after my shots like Gabashvilli, but he
was a patient pusher. Prolly explains why I have a bee in my bonnet for PushRay.

There IS something for Groove.

Prediction.

Groove has now been beaten by a 59 year old, a 14 year old. Nobody can ever accuse him of age discrimination.

Morgan is just like Tomic or Monfils. Lots of talent but has a hard time motivating himself for mug events. We saw his potential at the challenger level, no surprise he doesn't care against felons and seniors :wavey:

I watched some of your videos, and I'm serious, my 56 yo dad would most likely double bagel you Groove. No offense meant but you're seriously overrating your actual level.

Groove probably wouldn't even make the quarter finals of a MTF tournament so I'm not sure why people are still following such blatant trolling... Although to be fair I'm not sure many people are these days...
