Amir, don't quit. I started playing in the 9th grade as well. I would've killed to be part of a tennis academy. My parents couldn't afford any lessons let alone an academy. I read some tennis books and practiced all day against a backboard, and got to number 3 singles on my high school team. I played several USTA tournaments but got spanked each time. I tried out as a walk on at Vanderbilt but did not make the team. I didn't play tennis again for the next 20 years because of family and job. I am now 40 years old. I recently started to play again and looking to join a USTA league. I am once again excited about tennis. So don't quit, tennis is a sport for a lifetime.
