I actually don't know. I think when I was about 10.

My first trophy was like 2003, runner up in under 14 doubles at my tennis club. I have passed my peak

Clearly, the level of your high school team wasn't very high...

Doesn't matter if you trained at Bollettieri's five hours a day, five days a week... Two years is two years. Just sayin...

I played soccer and baseball since I was 5...it's not like I was un-athletic. Tennis became natural, not the finest technique but great anticipation and knowledge as well as athleticism.

Re: When did you start playing tennis?

When I was 10 or 11 because I had played and quit every other sport imaginable tennis is the longest I have been playing a sport. I didn't actually know if I was good until I played a U16 tournament when I 13 and won And I haven't even had a proper coach

I'm watching since the end of 2005, so it was actually more than 5 years.

Re: When did you start playing tennis?

I remember when I actually sat down and watched my first tennis match when I was 18. July, 2000. My best friend at the time called me up and told me to watch the Williams Sisters play. He said it was rare that they played each other.

Before then, I had no clue on how the scoring system operated nor did I even know much about the Sisters. I actually thought the were twins and from Africa

So I turned it on and they were playing on Grass. It was a semifinal encounter and Venus was up 3-2. From there I began watching the match with a lot of interest. Chrissy Evert and Johnny McEnroe were commentating and it just enhanced the first-time experience.

They were athletic and super intense. I knew then that I had found another sport to play. At the time I had ran Cross Country, Track-N-Field, played Soccer, Basketball, and Football.

That September, after the Olympic Games and the US Open, I picked up my first racket. I have not put it down ever since

Probably about 10, though I didn't really care or start seriously really enjoying it until I was 18-19.
