Well, after a barrage of injuries, I'm now 19. At 16 I was training pretty frequently and was going to start competing in some provincial tournaments when I injured my wrist. 2 years later I finally start playing again. I hit too hard on the 2nd day back after 2 years of inactivity and hurt my outter upper-arm. It's now 1 year later and I feel good. No injuries and with constant jogging I'm in good shape. I'm 1.85m , 80kg. I was interested in joining one of those junior programs (like I was once in) to train and compete but since I'm > 18 now I don't think that will work. I want to train 5 times a week and compete. I guess it's a 2 part question. a) How do I go about training for competition? Paying for individual private lessons doesn't seem like the thing to do since I'm looking for something so regular. b) How do I go about competing? What would I need to do to get a tennis scholarship in an American university? What sort of ranking would I need to show? Advice from all is welcome. I live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, so advice from fellow Canadians would be even more replace/insightful/pertinent.
