Question
I am 21 years old and have been learning tennis at a local academy  for the past 6 months. I rate myself (unbiased) 7 on 10 for forehand, 4 on 10 for backhand, 5 on 10 for volley, 6 on 10 for smash and 6 on 10 for service. Based on this can you please tell me what chance I have of turning pro in the next 2 years?

Answer
 THOUGHT I ALREADY ANSWERED THIS;;;AT 21 ON THE ATP TOUR  U WOULD HAVE 'LITTLE' CHANCE...PLAY IN SOME USTA/ITF TOURNAMENTS,,,../GET A RANKING THERE ..THEN PLAY IN SOME QUALIFYING 'PRO' TOURNAMENTS....GET BACK 2 ME IF YOU NEED MORE INFO....SERVE 'EM UP!
