Re: Who wants to become a tennis player

Hi Jordan!
(I'm french,so apologize me for all my mistakes.)
It's nice you'll play tennis and wanna become a pro!
I am too bad in it to play and to hope become a real player someday,but I like watching matches,especially juniors'.
Since this summer I am a big fan of Alex Kuznetsov and some of his opponents.

This is my website:

Love actually is all around...but,where?

Re: Who wants to become a tennis player

I'm Mexican, just turned 16. I am really looking forward to become a pro.I really thoght it was diffucult, I thought that if I wasnt a good junior I wouldnt have any chances.

But my trainer straightened things up for me, he said that when I turned 18/19 I should start playing Sattelites and Futures. the best option is Europe. There are 34 Futures in Spain yearly, so I'm planning to train hard (as I have been) and get good results in junior tennis so I can go confident to Eruope.

Re: Who wants to become a tennis player

I wish I had a coach. I will ask one of my junior opponents if they will train full-time with me

Re: Who wants to become a tennis player

Hello! I'm new on this site and I don't want to mess up your routine, I wonder if anybody can help me with tennis star's more detailed biography. I'm not a tennis player never played tennis in my life, just ping pong( originally from USSR ), I'm coaching my 8 year old son play tennis and I always wnted to know what stars did when they were at that age, because when you read their bio there's nothing in details

Re: Who wants to become a tennis player

Good luck to all of you who wish to become pros in the future Remember that you should never give up!

I started playing when I was 8, and I´m soon 17. There has been times when I played more, but now I only play 2 times x 1,5 h / week. but that´s enough for me! I know I´m not good enough to become a pro, but now I just play for fun. Last weekend I entered my first tournament in almost a year, and did pretty good, so I was really happy. I had almost forgot how nice it is to win matches, play good and bbe satisfied with yourself!

Wink Re: Who wants to become a tennis player

Hi,

It is again me tomorow I'm going to the Open Super 12 in French Bretagne in order to play again the top 2 players of 26 contries.
My coatch and my father told me that it's probably the most importante or difficult tournament of 12 years old in the world.

I'm only expect going in the final round, for this I have to win 4 matches....

The last 3 weeks I've practice 5h each weeks in order not ro be so bad...

See you next week, I will give you the result if you want.

Fernando from Proam team.
