    Thoughts on this Checklist for Junior Tennis Players?

    The one thing i noticed particularly, is that they start their training at age 3. while it is essential to start very young, i wonder whether their is any statistic about at what age the current generation of pros started their training. In other words, is it too late to start at age 5 or 6?
