I would love to be a professional tennis player. I think I would like it because I really love tennis, it's the thing I like the most.

When I was 9, I was hitting up against the wall and I told my dad that I wanted to be a professional tennis player. He just looked at me and said, "Oh really, you think it's THAT easy, do you!?" I never felt so sad in my life. I kept playing and practicing very hard but I never pursued it in case it made him mad again.

Oh yes, that would be fantastic!!!

I'm so devoted to tennis!! I love it!!!

It would be a dream to play a Grand Slam and to win it in a tought 5 sets match finished by a 14-12 for me!! And falling on the court, crying, kissing my professional tennis player girl friend (Jelena )!!! Hearing all the crowd cheering at me!!! It would be great!!

Well, what will be the greatest is to play everyday!!!!

I've always wanted to be a pro tennis player. I still have a chance because I'm good and I'm only 13 years old!

A few years ago, i really wanted to become a professional player...I really was serious about it at one point, but then i knew that i couldn't really keep my tennis up becuase of school....and then i thought, well, u don't really lead an interesting life...getting on and off planes, going from one hotel to another...Now, well i just like to play for fun, and watch it on tv....!

I mean, I love the game etc. but having to play tennis all the time would just get on my nerves!
Some hours of practice a day (like 5 at least I think), singles matches, doubles... I'd have no time left to do something else besides playing tennis. Really, I'd feel really empty if my life consisted out of tennis only...

I'd love to play professionally, but I only get to play one day a week because I have SATURDAY CLASSES at my school. I'm starting to play the New England 18s division (first tournament is next week) and I hope to crack the top 20 eventually since I'll play every day in the spring and summer. Realistically, I know I couldn't make a living professionally, but I do plan to take a year off after college and play on the tour just for the hell of it.
