Haha I admire your enthusiasm!

Let's put it this way: if you are over the age of 16, and want to go pro, enter an open level tournament. If you don't win with commanding scores, know that there is very little chance that you will be going pro in the near future. Opens are the key to success in high level tennis. They give you points that you need to be considered for ITF events such as Futures.

Ive watched some former future and challenger level players, and the difference between them and myself is so massive it's not even funny haha! I have the game to push decent 5.0 players, and I'm not even close to their level.

Good luck! If you have specific questions feel free to email me!
