It's a tough life

Tennis is a very rough way to make a living. Only about 100 of the world's best make a decent living solely through winning matches. Of those, only about 50 make what a cardiologist makes with the top 25 making wall street figures.
What amazes me, year after year, is how much the draw changes. Only 2 to 3 players from last year have returned this year. Maybe one made the big show, but the rest have done worse.
At my urology meeting, I saw all my old colleagues and everyone was successful. My dad was right. Play as an amateur, be a professional.
Good advice..
