If you were a pro

would you...

Option 1: Be like Safin/Nalbandian. Have several interests and pursue them but also have your tennis potential take a hit.

Opiton 2: Be like Federer and Nadal. Tennis is your passion and try to win everything that you enter.

Option: 3 It would depend on my rank

Option 4: It would depend on my health and age

Option 5: Other

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

Re: If you were a pro

I picked "other". First I wanted to write "be as Mirka, spot a very promising junior in the Olympic team and then enjoy watching tennis" but then I thought taking care of someone like Fed is too burdensome, being like Santoro is better-- get a decent ranking, go to all the interesting tournaments, lose in 2nd round and then, again, enjoy watching tennis

You would kill yourself with the pressure with 20 years old. The great champions never try to win everything, they go step by step and in each game they have their faith in their game to be proved once again to themselves.
