You have a point there. I can't imagine the expectations from the tennis world that would be placed on them. On Steffi's SportsCentury they said that when their son Jaz was two he hit the ball over the net from the baseline. I just see one of them being outstanding, talent-wise and mentally(if anything like Steffi).
