i guess jeff is right too, after i retire my pro carrier after winning a few grandslams i'd have millions to race as a hobby lol

either way i'm finishing school so i have a foundation to fall back on

BTW, the Fall Festival Tennis Championship is coming up the end of sept. i'm debaitin on playing the open championship, anyone wanna come support

Re: I'm debaiting....

tough decision bro', you enjoy both and you are trapped between the two. However, there is one that superceeds the other in experience...Tennis. That is probably the one you should persue, train for it and try it, whether you do well or not you'll still be young enough to persue the other. Maybe you ought to give yourself a reasonable goal for a certain period of time and see the results.

Good luck man, remember, you're in a win win situation because whichever one you choose to do, you already do well and feel passionate about. :biggthumpup:

Good luck man! I hope you do real well out there.... it is always nice to see people succeed at something they are passionate about. Try to work into your contracts where you can spend some time at the track in the off season. right:
