I'm in the top 40 in my USTA section, but I live in an area with no programs for juniors or other juniors to hit with. I call and play matches and hit with 4.5 and 5.0 adults. I try to play 2-3 matches a week and hit 2 days a week or so. I play about one tournament a month where I usually get at a few matches in. So I'm playing 7-12 hours a week, depending on homework. My goal is to play college tennis wherever I fit best. First question: I'm nearly 17 and I want to know how many matches a week I should try to play. I've had some injury issues in the past (wrist and tendonitis in my knee), so I don't want to overdo it, but I want to maximize my development with the time I have away from school. Second question: I have a tournament this weekend. How many matches should I try to play this week. I'm thinking every other day and take off the day before? Don't really have a knowledgeable coach in my area, so I'd appreciate as much feedback as possible. Thanks in advance.
