Sloane Stephens started playing when she was 9, and will soon be a top 10 player. An abundance of evidence (Russian sports system) suggests that kids should not specialize at a young age. There's only so much improvement a young kid can make when they are 6 to 12 years of age. Who cares if they are practicing 10 to 15 hours a week at this age. Save th harder training until the 13 to 15 range.
