Default When does a player turn pro?

I know this hasn't got a lot to do with Belgium, but when does a player turn pro? Is it when he or she plays thier first atp non challenger match?

I always thought you turned pro when, a player plays his or her first Atp match, a non challenger one?

It's the same like in all other sports: you turn pro the moment your sport is the only way of income you have. Then your sport is your main profession.

In Belgium most players turn pro, the moment they finish school (age of 18) and give tennis a full shot. There are soms exceptions for the big talents who turn pro earlier (Malisse, Clijsters, Henin, Rochus,...).
