I was supposed to enter qualifying for the Australian Open back in January, but I injured my shoulder and I'm still working to get over it. A pro career is what I've dreamed of, and hopefully it's something I'll be getting into this summer with qualifying for some events. :)

This may be a silly question:

Can anyone enter a qualifying event on the ITF?

oh WOW thats awsome - hope you guys take tennis seriously there because Dubai can provide a lot of support 4 the players there just needs to be some talent there - i think she did Ok won a game or two which is great.

Who's Leena? Is maymator's friend Jennifer Klara Smith? So many questions I'd like to have answered. :p

I started too late to become a pro, I'd have to move country, etc. I wouldn't like it, and I'm not mentally strong enough to, I choke sometimes :o

You can get into the qualifications of many pro tournaments/slams without having played a pro tournament before or even being ranked. I've played ITFs.

Jamie Hampton is on this board. She played (and won a qualy match) at Memphis last week. She lost in the second round to Gullickson in three sets. She posted after her first round match and had a lot to say about the experience. This past week she lost to Clarissa Fernandez in the Clearwater Beach, FL challenger. She is a very talented girl, she's only 16 as well. Best part is shes from my area:) Check out her posts in the Memphis forum form a couple of weeks ago.

I know a certain guy from Canada who played ITF-events just for fun. :p I guess the Canucks know who I'm talking about.^^ :D

I'm planning on it in the summer between my senior year in high school and my freshman year in college. I think I'll not accept the prize money though, just in case I end up playing in college.

I haven't, specifically. But, my friend Rachel - who plays at my tennis club, has played an ITF match. Here is the link to her profile:

http://www.itftennis.com/juniors/players/player.asp?player=100066015

My brother and I beat her and her other partner 8-0 in Doubles. I've beaten her, when I was thirteen, 6-0 6-1.

Also, my tennis coach is BOBBY MAHAL. He's a great coach, but says dumb stuff sometimes. He's on the ATP Tour site.
