You have to put in vastly more hours of practice to achieve top level success.
When you look at top class tennis players, the skill and cosistency is simply mind boggling.
Far more people play football but you can get away with a lot less skill and dedication.
The likes of Federer, Murray and Nadal would find it much easier to change careers and slot into top class football.
A top footballer would have absolutely no chance of slotting into tennis.
Sorry dude, there is no more difficult sport to succeed at then soccer/football. It has nothing to do with what you deem as being more difficult. It has everything to do with the size of the pool you have to contend with. Soccer is far and away the largest sport on the planet with nearly all of the 6 billion people on earth playing it at one time or another. No other sport even comes close.
