Tennis Schools

Just a bit of help needed. I would like to know how difficult it is to become a tennis player in your country? How they are trained? Whether its for rich or working class people? What type of system they go through to become great tennis players?

Doing an article at uni on tennis and the lack of great players coming from Britain, but would like to compare the systems to those from other countries. Some sources from the internet would be great aswell if possible.

All Italian Players

Especially Simone Bolelli and Fabio Fognini

Juan Martin Del Potro

Roger Federer

Thomas Berdych

Fernando Verdasco

Re: Tennis Schools

Well, a brother of a friend at my school happens to be #1 in the U.S. (around there, anyway), and, according to his old coach, has to be homeschooled and play 10+ hours a day. That's about all I know.

Re: Tennis Schools
