The talent even at the lowest level of pro tennis, satellites, futures, challenger etc. is pretty darn good and if you think that some of these guys have been playing these events for a few years and not even been able to sniff an ATP point...well that kinda tells you how tough the competition is. For you to progress thru the ranks to be able to compete at that modest level you'll need to work like a psycho and have truck loads of motivation ( and cash) and the unshakeable belief that one day you'll make it ( and by that I don't mean main ATP tour)its not impossible but its gonna be damned hard. Google Al Parker, an American 'phenom' who had all the talent one guy could have and couldn't make a dent in pro tennis.Hi,I'd like to know how do you turn pro in the UK?
Say I'm a 10.2 junior(14-16)and want to be a pro,what do you do and what's the best way?
I can't find info on this and how to progress to national level.(1.1)
Please can anyone help?
