Default Old start as tennis player

Do you think a player with 19 years old but with some natural talento to tennis but that hasn't been playing on tour (junior or future before) with appropriate training can start a pro career?

People are not "free" to express an opinion. Instead, if they choose to express anything, they choose to pay the price. The price is the effect on others and the effect on the person. There is no free lunch in this world.

I don't think you could become an ATP pro, but you could definitely try some Futures tournaments and if you get lucky with a draw maybe could get an ATP point.

Well if you started early teens , 13 or 14 like you said . Then it's probably too late to go pro . I am not sure what the format is as far as it goes for National Tennis where you are but maybe see how you get on at that level first . We have County tennis in the UK and some of the top level players ( National Players) for that level can and have gone on to get ranking points . Best to test yourself gradually and see how you progress . I find it would be unlikely you could go pro as these pro's get it hard wired at a early age even just the top 300 / 400 guys start at about 4 or 5 . There's the odd exception . ( James Ward Started at 11 ) and I believe 2 of the Griekspoor's started at 12 .
