If I may give you a piece of advice...

I was groomed to be a world class tennis player from the age of 4 by my father, and all went great till the age of 17. At that point I became one of the best juniors in the country. Few months later I completely destroyed my wrist and I was in and out for most of a good 2 years. At that point I got into drugs, sex, and alcohol and basically drifted onto college. Once I discovered the life outside of training, I loved it. College was a blast!!!

Now i'm 24, got through college successfully and running a great business. However, since I started working, I haven't gone through a day without regretting what could've been. I realized that all that fun I had in college is not TRUE happiness and it ends as soon as college ends. I think about how I could've been travelling the world playing tournaments instead of sitting on my desk and negotiating with the Chinese. Loving your work and livelihood is very underrated.

I started training fulltime again a few months ago (even tho chances of succeeding are 1 in 1000 since i'm damn old in tennis years) but the feeling is just unprecedented. I love it. Training fulltime beats everything I ever did in college.

So what i'm saying is, you need to continually communicate with your son. You have to guide him 100% the whole way because its only when you are in your 20s that you realize you knew nothing about life when you were in your teens. We think we know it all in high school and college. But it all turns to blank ones you're out. That's why so many athletes in this day and age are sick in the head. They become adults too early.

I hope my 2 cents is worth it.

And yes, he's got game!

great advice and i'm glad to hear you're back into the sport that u love. i wish i had stuck w/ basketball when i was a kid, but i became a bit of a rebel and didn't have anyone really to push me into it or work w/ me. i could have made my HS varsity squad practically w/o trying out according to that coach that wanted my height.

the line where the child is wanting to play and the parent is pushing them to play is thin. so far, he wants to play as much as he does and gets mad when i tell him to sit back and relax a bit. i sincerely hope that he keeps this pace up and becomes the ballplayer that he's showing the potential to become, all the while i'll be guiding him through it.
