My experience:

I train an 8 year old girl who started about 6 months ago and last week won her first girls 12 challenger. Im sure if she continues, she will have a great future ahead of her in tennis. So it is my experience that 7 to 8 is a good age to start some more serious training, without compromising the child's love for the sport though (making them jump rope, hit a million forehands). you have to know how to properly train and coach someone that age appropriately.
