Kokkinaki should be more cautious in retweeeting, some of these labels stink more than an unwashed Hollywood woke star's ass

Fact is they'd just work in their daddy's thriving business given they were already rich. Likely in a managerial position.

I mean, if you really wanted to accurately guess what they'd be doing if not for tennis that would be the best way.

In some cases they'd be professional athletes in other sports.

Couldn't picture McEnroe in his father's law practice -- "your honor, you cannot be serious!!"
"Your Honor, you cannot be serious, YOU CAN NOT BE SERIOUS!!! My client is clearly innocent, chalk flew up, he did not cross the line.
YOU ARE THE PITS OF THE WORLD!!!"

"Please leave the court Mr.McEnroe, you are disbarred!"

Short career. ;)

If I wasn't a pro chess player I'd be a pro bridge player? You have to take into account the finely tuned path to being a pro athlete. The mentality has to match. Genetics have to match. Luck as well.

OPelka could be basketball player right now given how that it is a genetically structured game. Apart from that, go run dad's oil company.

What I mean is that some of them did many sports as kids and eventually settled for tennis. If they had settled for an another sport, the most talented ones could've reached professional level in that too.

Also not every tennis players' dads are company owners so some of them would've also just ended up in pretty regular jobs.

Club tennis coaches. Isn’t that what those who fail at a pro career do after spending most of their childhood learning no other life skills except playing tennis?
