Hi all, is there anyone you know or you want to that is considering turning pro, or at least trying to get into the main draw of a future? I have been playing tennis on and off for about 4 years, and i think i am going to take it really seriously now. When i think i am good enough whihc might be a while, i am considering trying to enter a really low future tournament so i can get a pro ranking.

I am 17 and from the UK. I know you might think 17 you have left it too late, which is true becuase most players start playing when they are about 8, 9 sometimes before that. My coach says i need a bit more pracitse but i could at least get a pro ranking with a bit more practise. I don't know if i really want to, i want to go to uni.
Are you considering turing pro?

no, i'm not. you must be really talented if you can still become a pro. Most players actually start when they are about 5 years old, so they grow up with tennis. But I wish you the best of luck and hope you make it!
