Sure most of them do not but still play and practice. First they do it to please their parents, then to protect their ranking and social status and finally they realize that they can cash in on college acceptances/scholarships. So it is a complicated love/hate relationship.
Sureshs, girl's tennis field is very shallow. Semi-talented girl absolutely can get a tennis scholarship practicing 10hrs/week. More talented/athletic girl can get a scholarship to a ranked D1 team on this schedule. Majority of 5&4 stars and even some blue chips go to regular school and do not practice more than 12hr/week. During school breaks/summer they are obviously training more - 20-30hrs/week.
