When I observe junior tennis for 20 plus years and talk to coaches with decades more experience....and they all conclude that ceilings are reached after 10-12 years of tennis focus, I get information.
This is not simply guessing. Its tennis history. There are no cases we can find in tennis history of a guy being fully tennis dedicated from age 5 for 10-12 years, growing at a steady pace, and not reaching his approximate ceiling after those 12 years.
Top 75 pros do not surprise anyone once they train for 10-12 years. Some may have very late growth spurts which delays their maturation, others like Roanic may not be fully into tennis until a later age....but we can not find ANY surprises in players that went fully into tennis as kids when we go back over the current top pros.
TCF a question out of the current top 10 ITF players right now which ones have a chance of being top money makers ?
