Hi Kevin,

They talk about the 10,000 hours principle to master something.  So at 8 hours a week it will take around 1250 weeks or 24 years.

Sounds like a long time doesn’t it.  However you can still improve your game greatly over the years and become a high level player with regular training.

Yes, in the mastery. But i i see average players before that after a year, their game really improve a lot in just a year because they have great trainers! so is it possible for me to improve my game? For now, i know how to topspin forehand and loop forehand, but not really in backhand. And i am not good in receiving services yet. I mean in a year, can i be average in all the strokes if i train qith great trainers? Thank you so much for helpong me. =)

Hi Kevin,

Definitely.  If you train 8 hours a week you will see some really big improvements in a year.
