Ya dink?
Maybe rather than play tennis only, for 9 hours a day, 6 days a week, a developing player should consider basketball, soccer, and air hockey/table tennis?

Baseball/football would help a lot with developing a natural throwing motion.

This article is a big DUHHHH. Repetitive use injuries are easiest to avoid by cross training. Nothing new here.

That natural throwing motion is best developed when one is much younger. Then again, it does not necessarily transfer. I have always thrown a ball much better with my right arm than my left. OTOH, my lefty tennis serve is much better than my righty serve. Throwing a tennis racket is somewhat different than throwing a ball.

I find that I throw a football or baseball much further than I throw my tennis racket.
