Arcticle about 5-year old "wunderkind" Jan Silva...

Here is an interesting(?) article for those of you who understand German. It's about five year old "wunderkind" Jan Silva, who is training at the Mouratoglou academy (who brought up players like Baghdatis, Karlovic and Mathieu). His tennis talent was discovered early, but his parents couldn't pay the fees for one of the (bigger) American academies. Now he got some kind of scholarship from the academy, where he is living with parents.

Don't know what to think of it, but maybe some of you have heard more about him. Here is the link:

If I hear one more thing about this kid until he's actually 20 or so and winning titles I'm going to scream.

Hmmm this thread is going to be derailed by one or all of the following things:his dad being black, something about genetics, Omgz new federer, dads bulge in pants, etc, etc, you get the drift.

If this kid doesn't win 10 slams minimum he's a "miserable failure". Not to put any pressure on him or anything.

There is a thread on this forum for almost a year and actually more than a thread about him. :shrug:

If you care to use the search function and using the name of the kid, you will easily find his thread.

Funny thing is in 2027, someone will post that quote to prove what everyone knows at the time(2027) that Jan Silva is the GOAT. Anyone else will be a Jan Silva bandwagoner/tard. :D :D

French TV already televised him several times, he left Mouratoglou to go back to USA with his family. Nobody can tell if this kid will become a tennis player or another job...wait and see but it's because he likes tennis at 5 that he'll enjoy it at 15 or 20
