I'm pretty sure Nicole is pro since she's played two full seasons on the WTA Tour. ;)

vaidisova is a pro according to the 2005 Official Guide to Professional Tennis. and given that she is like 11 in the world, she must be

I always thought that being a professional means that you gain money from a sport.

edit: and that these money is enough to make a good living so you don't need another job.

Yes, it's right - if you are an amateur, you don't get paid in tennis either. There was a thing with Alex Stevenson when she had her runat Wimby, and she was still and amateur, but she turned pro half way through the tourney so they would pay her...

If Nicole isnt pro, then that means a lpayer in the top 10 is not a professional tennis player :lol:

I think Peng IS still an amateur :rolleyes:

I am alway curious about what decides if a player can turn pro or not :confused: I heard when Peng Shuai told CTA she wanted to train in US and play alone in 2005 , CTA threatened not let her turn pro if she left the national team but fail to get a gold medal in 2008 olympics :o why can't Peng turn pro by herself?

Peng is still listed as an amateur in the WTA rankings.

CTA fund part of Shuai's training/travel etc...I think Shuai thought it would be too expensive to try and go it alone in the US having to pay everything herslef. :shrug: (There was a big discussion about this I think around this time last year...I'm pretty sure that's what was said...)

Peng is still listed as an amateur in the WTA rankings.
It also says she's won $591,928 in prize money, so that should tell you how reliable the website profiles are.

Both Radwanska & Vaidisova are pro. No doubt
