Do most pros come from wealthy families? There has always been a trend of people who turn pro at an age of 16-19. The way i see it. you usually dont see anyone turn pro after or during college which is at an age of 18-22 about. Ive been told that professionals come from wealthy families because they dont need to go to college and just play tennis all the time. They make the decision to not go to college and make it to the pro level. but if they dont make it to the pro level. they still have enough money in the end to live pretty decent. Then there is the path of going to college to play tennis because they cannot afford to take the risk of not turning professional to compete. And also, are there any top pros who went to college and came out to compete fairly well? so yea. do a majority of the pros come from wealthy families?
