Hey all

1. How do you guys now what tournaments are on now, etc? If its grand slam its easy because its major/big, however if its not? How do you girls keep track?

2. Those very young tennis players , what was the first step that they took? Of course, they first joined a tennis club, then what? Their coach recommended them to enter competitions and stuff? Or they think theyre good and they joined?

Thats it

THanks

1. Try looking at the tournament section on http://www.sonyericssonwtatour.com/3/global/includes/TrackIt.asp?file=http://www.sonyericssonwtatour.com/2/global/pdfs/events/2008/TourCalendar.pdf

2. Look at the ITF section of their website: http://www.itftennis.com/womens/startingout/

Hope it helps.

Besides those officials links, popular website like ESPN, Yahoo Sports and NBC Sport also have the yearly calendar for WTA and ATP.

The four GS sites (Wimbledon, French, US Open and Australian Open ) have a wealth of archival info about their respective tournament.

Thanks everyone, a lot of great help there.

So basically, according to your opinions, what is the V_E_R_Y --- F_I_R_S_T --- S_T_E_P to take if you want to bring your tennis to the next level? Obviously, join a club and get a coach, but then what?

Thanks all for the help

Well basically you start at the very bottom. Tiny tournaments and work your way up. Joining a club and getting a coach will start this.

Your coach will know of local tourneys;)

Also, play every day and talk to everybody you possibly can, and remember all their advice; take notes and phone numbers.
