Kid I hate to break the news to you but you're way out of touch with reality.
Even the best men's tennis player in all of college, the NCAA Division 1 singles champion traditionally doesn't break into the top 200 in the pros their rookie year. If you can even get ranked among the top 200 boys in Ohio that would be a big accomplishment.

If you really want to become a pro you'll have to change your goal from ATP touring pro to local teaching pro or local tennis coach.

I was ranked 50 in Ohio playing one event...so, there you go on that one. Second, I said lifetime. Did I say in my rookie year of playing? All that matters is that I want to achieve that goal.

Next stop: Roland Garros

Ana ('08 RG), Serena (21), Venus (7), Petra (2), Angie ('16 AO)
Vika (2), Sveta (2), Simona, Garbi, Ka. Pliskova
Kim (4), Mahree (2), Monica (9), Dokic, Sandrine, Jie

Um, he is playing practice shots. He seems very decent. You could say the same thing about many Pro's when they are warming up, hitting practice.

Re: Video or Photos of You Playing Tennis

I only have a vid of a terrible second serve, a forehand which forced an error and a fault. I use videos as a training tool, but havent done in awhile. Wish I had ones of when I was fit haha
