For what I saw in the video you would probably win the 2nd amateur league no problem and be between the best of the 1st league, but the futures would be a different story, you might be able to win a few games, probably a set but not many chances on a game. I have 2 futures that train every day next to me, one is Argentinean the other one is American they are around 17 years old and I can assure you they would double beagle me and it would be hard for me to get games or sets out of them, can't even dream of wining a match.
I couldnt find many videos of a futures but this one is of 2011 and it played at the club that I play at and its of the winner of the tournament: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CLlq3gsmVLM
I have no idea what the level of futures in USA is, but if its near the argentinenan one you will have a hard time, I wish you all the best and that you win many games and if possible tournaments!
I still have some work in my game to do. I am training as much as I can right now. I have two friends that play in futures, I am a little under their level, but not by much. I would say I'm a half level, USTA rating wise, under them. If I can do it, great, if not, well then I tried! It's just for fun for me.
