Thanks for your answers. Do you think it's possible that that special something that separate the good players from the great players comes together later in their young career? What I mean is that you have a player who has all the tools but the thing that holds them back is their mental. Do all the great ones have that mental strength from day 1 or can they have all the athleticism but achieve the mental strength when they're older. I have another child who has received the same training, same coaches as my son, is bigger, stronger and quick but is so far behind my son in terms of tennis IQ and mental strength. It can be very frustrating to see your child that you know has the tools but it is so inconsistent. When it's good it's awesome, but when it's bad it's horrid.
