Well, looks like he's got options for his life already!

you mean it should be in the "Future Pro Player Talk" section ? ;)

impressive and smooth technique for a 7 years old kid...
(his backhand reminds me a bit of baghdatis !)

Doesn't seem that impressive to me. :-P

Apun94 01-02-2013 09:58 AM

Overall great game but a bad slice technique

Prodigy1234 01-02-2013 02:38 PM

I am retracting my statement as I have watched more of his game. Looks like he has a bright future ahead of him

barringer97 01-02-2013 03:21 PM

Great Serve! Fun to watch.

Chemist 01-02-2013 03:45 PM

Nice footwork too.

C'mon guys he is certainly a good player for his age. The problem is that a lot of the smaller kids are more coordinated at younger ages. Later on the bigger kids get better. Some of the smaller kids grow and some do not. The kid that has the talent, drive, and needed coaching all the way through is a rare kid.

ShoeShiner 01-03-2013 04:05 AM

Still too far to predict, but this is a talented kid.

How about comparing with future Nole, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vHoksl74Qos ?

He looks good. Wish my 8y/o hit like that.

I particularly like the service motion. Smooth and going *up*.

But as others have said, it's a small kid who moves well. Tough to predict what the future holds.

There are many athletic big kids I have seen over the years. It is more of a result of exposure to multiple sports and activities.
Kids who play several sports, riding bike, skating/rollerblading, playing basketball, throwing football, etc when they are under 10 do better (after 10) than kids who practice solely tennis.
Tennis is a skilled sport and athletic kids can catch up once they spend enough hours to learn tennis skills.

Don't give big size as an excuse of being clumsy.
Get the big kids active and involve in many sports and you will see no difference between big and smaller kids. Look up youtubes of Jerzy Janowicz a 6 ft 8 inch guy playing tennis and compare with John Isner and Sam Querrey.

What is depressing is seeing someone call a 7-yo "mindless baseline basher". Winning points at the net isn't the best strategy when the net is taller than you.

I just could not see from the video that this little kid would be afraid of charging the net. Actually this video is rather similar to several tennis recruiting videos for 1-2 star high school seniors. It would not surprise me if this kid has a good match against several 18 yr old boys who wanted to play D2-D3 tennis.

Agreed. That was an ignorant comment.

That kid is unbelievable for a 7-yr old. That doesn't mean he will be an elite junior or go pro. Still, it's funny to see the peanut gallery jump in and find fault.

I agree...he's been taught well and is off to a great start. I understand wanting to get some constructive input, but most of the time these vids are posted, it attracts negativity. Sad.
