The road of a champion - PLEASE READ AND COMMENT
Okey hi everyone i'm Erik and i'm from sweden. I've been playing tennis since i was 8-9 and today i'm reaching the age of 18 in 2 months. So i have been playing in around 9 years. I'm playing in a tennis highschool in sweden and i guess im pretty good (there are better peoples though lol).
But the dream of that atp match nadal did when he was 16 is kinda blow'd away lol.
I guess i just need someone to say that i really can go to the pro level one day. Is it just extremly hard training that takes you there? Or is there anything else too?
Cause my mind is 100% and my attitude is not like everyone elses around me, i don't want to get that work at that office sitting there and dreaming what i could have been one day.
I really want to get to the atp's one day.. But when i see all those 1993's and 1994's that are BETTER then me, they kinda rip my dream appart.
I don't really know what to belive in (i'm 1991). Is 2 or 3 years really that much of a deal later when you play in the men's class and do you really have to be one of the best in your country at the 16-18 years age to ever reach the pro's?
I've heard 18-20 are going to be the time of your life, but all i'm think about is that i might be to old (late) to go tennis pro.
So my question, (honest) Is it too late?
EDIT: I'm sorry if this is in a wrong topic but i didn't think of any other topic it could fit into.
