No one in our family sacrificed their whole childhood for tennis. If that was the point, I agree with it. Lots of other sacrifices, some small, some significant were involved.

In our family we teach that sacrifice is a precondition to success.

(Not preaching that you or any other family should do this, it is just our personal belief)
Exactly. To me, those are not sacrifices, but choices of how to spend time and money responsibly.
