I'm starting this year to play tournaments and I already lost in the first round of my L4. I'm so confused. It feels like I should quit because Im wasting time and money playing a sport that'll lead me no where. I COULD run cross country and I know I could get a scholarship because I've ran a couple times and the coach said I'd be extremely good. All in all, I'm just asking everyone if I should quit and run cross country or if I actually have a chance playing D1 like unc and those schools. I really don't want the whole "Just work harder" speec because I've gotten it a million times. Thanks
Your friend may be right. You will have a better chance of running for a college. If you really want to play competitive tennis in college, you would need to work hard in the next 2.5 years and then you would have a pretty good chance of playing in a club team.
