    Should have chose the graduate school route, great D1 player not making too much of an impact in the pro circuit.

    He spent the summer in Virginia Beach, walking around with Gasquet and discussing stroke techniques.

    He is a promising player.

    In the Fall he was reported riding horses in the Roanoke area with T. Huey.

    He beat overgrown Isner and will beat him again.

    Of course, I chased him down with a huge fake tennis ball and got him to write down the number and the chipotle location with a magic marker. He wrote down that information and asked me not to share it with zapvor. He said zapvor doesn't have enough respect for Ryan Sweeting.

    He is having a hard time coming back from injury, He is able to hardly win matches in qualies and challengers. He had an easy 1st round at USO with his PR, still he messed up.

    If he does not do well in the next 6 months, it could mean the end of his career.

    I just hope something clicks. Not sure whether he has doubles skills either ala Bopanna, Paes and Bhupathi.

    Looking for a perma-ban.
    What's new with GOATdev? :D

    After beating Delpo(via retirement), he lost his very next match in Dubai, and lost in the qualies of IW :(

    Journeyman when healthy don't do too well injured. I hope he can recover and stay top 100.

    Bopanna Qureshi really surprised me with their fluid doubles play at IW
