    MEP vs ET Players - Original TT Epic

    I think it depends on your perspective of “high level tennis,” if you look at percentages of all tennis players, then I believe 4.5 would be a decently high level. If you asked me, I would have to say 4.5 is not a particularly high level of tennis, based on the caliber of 4.5 level players I’ve...

    MEP vs ET Players - Original TT Epic

    Tbh it’s honestly a shame MEP never took the initiative to learn more conventional strokes to develop a stronger all around game. He’s obviously got amazing racquet skills and feel for the ball. He has top tier anticipation and strategy. Seemingly limitless stamina, an amazing throwing arm, and...

    MEP vs ET Players - Original TT Epic

    essential tennis channel received 1.1 million views in the last 30 days, up 10% from the previous 30 days. About a month ago is when Ian started the “MEP saga.” I’m guessing 5 dollars per thousand views is what Ian makes, so that would equate to a little over $5,000. Now, Ian is a business man...

    MEP vs ET Players - Original TT Epic

    Exactly, that’s how I got bumped up to 5.0 playing my second season ever at 4.5 in 2015. My only loss came in a close 3 set contest when I was sick and my captain couldn’t find a sub. Then my other 8 matches I won easily in straight sets every time, with some of the people I straight setted...

    MEP vs ET Players - Original TT Epic

    Sean looks like a benchmark 4.0 to me. However, to say a 4.5 would have no problem destroying him on any surface, anytime is something I disagree with. Some players play better indoors in perfect conditions. Some players play best outdoors in hot conditions. Some players reveal their best...

    MEP vs ET Players - Original TT Epic

    tennis troll has a very simple editing style, similar to my own tennis vids. a 90 min match takes me about 90 minutes to edit. Troll puts a bit more effort than I do, so I’m guessing a 90 min match takes him about 105 min to edit.

    I’ll go on his channel after the MEP saga ends, problem solved.

    MEP vs ET Players - Original TT Epic

    ET got 18K views in one day, just because some of y’all are impatient doesn’t mean everyone else has lost interest... Ian is doing an amazing job milking the MEP saga for all it’s worth.

    To each their own. Some people value “looking good” on court. Some people value winning on court.

    MEP vs ET Players - Original TT Epic

    As a pro fishing YouTuber, I can say with 100% certainty that any player in the top 50 ATP is head and shoulders above MEP RIGHT NOW in terms of popularity. Your analogy here might come true in the future (but I doubt it with 99.9% certainty). 6 years ago professional anglers made fun of us...

    MEP vs ET Players - Original TT Epic

    if you read my post, I said in my “current form.” I am a completely different player right now than in the videos you’ve seen. The me right now would beat the me of those videos 6-2 6-2 or worse 100% of the time.

    MEP vs ET Players - Original TT Epic

    I appreciate that, but no plans to upload any vids unless I play someone real interesting. if I was invited I’d go play some of those essential tennis guys. In my current form I believe I would win against MEP and Ian but I’d probably lose against Mark.

    MEP vs ET Players - Original TT Epic

    One of the best ways to rank your video higher on the YT algorithm is by having high amounts of “watch time.” Now with that being said, videos that are too long tend to thwart away viewers that are on the fence about clicking. For a tennis vid, I’d recommend an 8-12 min vid for non match play...

    Using the app “social blade,” you can see that mark received 154,000 views across his entire channel during the last 30 days. Considering I’m making $8-$10 per 1,000 views right now and Mark is running multiple ads the same as me, it’s fair to estimate that he’s likely making $4 - $5 per...

    you know what, I agree with you here. I was in the wrong to bring her up and our divorce. From this point forward I shall refrain from mentioning either one. Not everything’s about how much money u can make bro. For me, my main goals are to live a free, fun, and fulfilling life. And my current...

    Lol all good bro, the toxicity here is nothing compared to computer games and youtube. No matter what anyone else says, even if all 7 billion people in the world thought I was a bad person, it would make no difference to me. As long as I believe in myself, that is more than enough.

    She’s currently going back to school to became a nurse practitioner. I too hope she can move forward and find success for the sake of herself and our son, I simply could not continue my marriage with her. To help her succeed, I’m even given her our marital home which I bought with 100% with my...

    My Journey to 6.0 Has Ended... Can I Still Improve? (TennisProdigy Video Diary)

    Not that I have to justify why my divorce was the best decision of my life, even my ex-wife’s aunt (who is also best friends with my ex-wife’s mom), told me on the phone that she can’t believe I lasted in a relationship that long with her. And that she was happy that I’ll be able to live a...

    My Journey to 6.0 Has Ended... Can I Still Improve? (TennisProdigy Video Diary)

    The issue is that I made 100% of our income, AND I watched our son 50% of the time, then my ex-wife watched him 20% of the time and her mom watched him 30% of the time. The judge specifically agreed with me that able and willing parents should take precedence over raising our son vs...

    Everything I’ve said is 100% truth as I’ve always told, and it just so happens that the entire court case is public record. I am simply regurgitating facts that are already out there. But I do agree with you, since this is a tennis forum, this thread should focus on the pursuit of my 6.0...

    Thank you, my performance in court on October 12, 2020 was one of the proudest days of my life. My ex-wife wanted sole physical and legal of our son and I, being the very fair and reasonable person that I am, fought for 50/50 custody and shared legal custody. Another key factor that helped me...

    As much as I’d love for that to happen I could practice for 10,000 hours and it wouldn’t be even half as good as theirs... I simply don’t have natural talent as much as it pains me to :cry: The only meds I’ve taken over the last 15 years are over the counter allergy drugs. I also have an...

    Is a USTA computer rated 5.0 a real 5.0? Rescheduled match is this Friday, and I will be using my side arm serve and my new 2HBH. I still have yet to take a set off Bill in our 3-4 full matches played, should be a good test for me!

    “If you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball,” - Patches O’Houlihan. If I can beat 5.0 level players with a sidearm serve, I can beat 6.0 players with an overhead serve by using the same logic from one of my favorite underdog movies.

    hmm? Which part blew your mind? I have never been hospitalized in any type of mental institution, I’ve only been hospitalized for severe asthma attacks about 4-5 times as a kid. However, my ex-wife has been forcibly hospitalized at a mental institution for 4 days. They wanted to keep her for...

    #4: Green Shirt Guy / Most Exhausting Player :: The Megamind Interview Series

    Inspiring story from GSG! His tennis improvement was quite fast and furious initially, possibly from his basketball/weight lifting background but seems to have plateaued somewhat in terms of NTRP level. He seems to have been working very hard in the last year or so to improve, I wonder if 2021...

    Roger that coach! two things: 1. With my ability to learn, if I haven’t mastered it in 7 years, I ain’t ever gonna master it unfortunately. 2. You’re correct on the jumping. It might look excessive to you right now, but once I get my timing down and with my athleticism I’m actually able to...

    I am very much looking forward to my match with MEP, his shot tolerance, stamina, and tennis IQ are extremely impressive. With that being said, his play style is going to limit his ceiling to about 5.0 minus tops. My ceiling is much higher than that.

    My Journey to 6.0 Has Ended... Can I Still Improve? (TennisProdigy Video Diary)

    although I could play two forehands no problem, the anatomy and physics suggest such a technique to be obsolete having played with both, I 100% see where you’re coming from. the one handed backhand has more spin potential, more power potential, easier to hit cross court and down the line when...
