Question
Hi,
I'm Akshay from India.
I'm 17yrs 5months old and have lots of interest in tennis. My life time ambition is to become a world class professional tennis player  and i want to achieve it through complete hard work and confidence. But the problem is that i have not even played tennis before. And my question is that, can i reach my goal if i start playing tennis from now? and what all efforts is needed to make my dream come true?
My interest is at such an extent that i daily practice my forehand and backhand with mosquito bat! Hope, you show me a right path to achieve it.
Thank You.
Akshay.
