I want to turn out to be a specialist tennis player terribly. Sadly i only created a enthusiasm for tennis when i was 13, and i commenced getting tennis classes then. I am now 14, and i have been taking part in tennis for a year, and my trainer says he is looking at quick advancement. I take 3 and a 50 percent several hours of tennis lessons in the course of the weekend, and for the duration of the week i invest every single afternoon on court working on my sport for about one and a fifty percent hours every single working day. I was questioning, is this sufficient apply to get me to a professional amount in a few several years?

Why are you asking about the pro’s when you have not even been ranked at the sectional level but? Hmm, nicely, at least you happen to be optimistic :-)

The ATP has in excess of 1900 gamers outlined in its singles rankings. They are all robust gamers. Nonetheless, in the ATP rankings, there are various skill ranges. How a lot of is difficult to say, and the differences are refined.


Rather of considering and chatting about the pro’s, I advocate that you target on achieving brief-expression objectives in your apply classes connected to racket-handling on all the strokes. That will be a lot difficult ample!

I would also recommend that you spend one working day a 7 days NOT taking part in or working towards tennis. Burnout is a critical, widespread difficulty with a lot of juniors, school gamers, and professionals alike. The pro’s usually have to get a few of months away from tennis when they get burned out, and even then, they might be ruined as much as determination is anxious.

If you coaches are intelligent, they will hold you OUT of significant tournaments until finally you’ve been education for two or 3 years. Study about this in “The Expertise Code” by Daniel Coyle.

Nobody understands no matter whether you will “blossom” into a entire world-class player or not. It will take a whole lot of cash to play the tour. Most of the gamers with ATP or WTA rankings are NOT earning enough prize money to pay out for their expenditures.

Just keep going out five or six times a week to exercise, and do the very best you can. As Tilden said long back, “It get 5 several years to make a tennis participant, and ten a long time to make a champion.” You’ve got only been taking part in for about a yr now, so it truly is way also early to make any predictions like this.

Be skeptical of anyone who tells you that you have expertise at this stage. Hard operate, excellent training & coaching, enthusiasm, sportsmanship, these items are a lot more crucial than “expertise.” I’ve noticed a lot of players who experienced gobs of expertise, but fizzled out because they would not put in the perform, or wouldn’t adhere with tennis lengthy sufficient to realize success at it. It is NOT easy, so never anticipate it to be.

Sportsmanship might not be #one, but it’s way forward of whatever is in 2nd location.

For that reason, read through and understand “The Code” in addition to the official “ITF Policies of Tennis:”


Ideal of luck, hope you have a minor entertaining together the way :-)
