JJ Wolf is legit good

Villain

Semi-Pro
JJ looked strong in his first set against Milos and had a chance to break for the set on a second serve. Unfortunately, it didn’t work out and he then lost the set in a tiebreaker. He then lost all of the momentum in the second set. Tough loss. Interested to see where he plays next. His play style is fun to watch.

Dude is just being a pest

if his point that he wants to shove down our throats is that there’s not a 100% guarantee Wolf and his ranking will continue to improve, you win, great contribution!

there’s an overwhelming chance he will
Wolf highest ranking is 120th... He is currently at 122nd. He also lost to Alexei Popyrin, ranks 109, on Oct 17th.

Oh wow, he’s two spots below his career high, god help him!

you really thought you had some gotcha moment based on a tiny short-term ranking variation? Let me know if he doesn’t have a new career high 6 months from now

Will JJ Wolf have a better career than Steve Johnson?

This is not a troll question.

He seems like he could be a dangerous player up to a certain level, but will he reach that top 20 to 30 range? Win a couple tour level titles?

Hard to predict. So much depends on how hungry Wolf is to succeed, especially when he consistently faces stiffer competition. I'm still a big fan of his game though. Optimistically, I'd say the potential is definitely there.

Wolf is so good that he lost to Roman Rishatovich Safiullin today who is currently ranked 184th.

For somebody who's not a fan, you seem to follow Wolf very, very closely ...
I was a big fan of Wolf, until Summer 2019, because Wolf attended my alma mater, the Ohio State University. Wolf and OSU should have won both the single and team NCAA that year. They lost to an inferior team. In single competition, Wolf lost to a freshman from U. of Florida.

Wolf has always an under achiever. I would like to be proven wrong but I've been right so far about Wolf.

he has been on tour full time for functionally less than a year, given the degradation of this year's calendar d/t Covid

those of us that think he has a lot of potential haven't been proven right, far from it
those like you that think every loss proves he's a bust haven't been proven right either, far from it
give it a rest for a few months

and Wolf didn't lose the match against UNC - you know that well - and so do I, since I was there in person - maybe talk to McNally and others about that loss if you're still upset about it, not the guy who won his matches at 1 singles and 1 doubles

Isn't he the one that hooked the Illini on a ball a half-foot inside the baseline? Lack of character indicates a lack of meddle. Neither he nor his 80s mullet impress me.

he was not, that was McNally


any more nonsense we can blame JJ for?

OSU losing to UNC in NCAAs? oh, he won both his matches, #1 singles and #1 doubles...

famous bad college tennis line call? oh that was mcnally, who was also the one that lost the clinching singles point vs UNC...

maybe both of you guys need to be in a support group where you learn not to blame Wolf for all the **** McNally does :)

Support group? For asking a question? Are you a Buckeye? I ask because you apparently don't understand the syntax related to the punctuation referred to as a question mark. Notice, I asked if you were a Buckeye. Also, do you have a mullet? Typical Buckeye nonsense. :)

i have no relation to OSU

just think it’s humorous all the random crap people are trying to pin on Wolf in this thread, and thus tongue-in-cheek suggested a support group for you fools

your post wasn’t an innocent question, you took a shot at his character based on wrong information, now you’ve been corrected, sit down

I made an observation based on inaccurate information, which I couched. You got personally insulting. I responded in-kind.
