Trying to get serious about tennis...

Say you are a casual tennis player who wanted to try and get serious about tennis. Not like a start from scratch type player, but just making a decision that you want to focus a good amount of time on it, and see what happens with it.

What do you go about doing? Steps, etc. I know there is no blue print how to do anything, but just any suggestion to get out of the box?
