After age 14, something unexpectedly kicked in and she started to practice better and started to compete better in matches. from age 14 to 18, she was ranked 5th in all of Asia 14U, ranked 200 in ITF 18U, played Fed Cup for 2011 and 2012 for her country and now is on a D1 full scholarship. Given you pedigree in tennis, I think your daughter will find her way in tennis and will shine in her own time. Hang in there!
WOW!!!! THANKS!!! THAT IS GOOD TO KNOW. YOUR POST GIVES ME HOPE!!
