Choosing between tennis and completing your education can be one of the toughest decisions you can make in life. If you choose to play tennis worldwide, one of the first things that you must have is sponsorships. Sponsors like Nike and Wilson pay for your worldwide travel and provide you with tennis equipment.
Many promising tennis players dream to be sponsored through Nike, which is endorsed by World No.1 Rafael Nadal and World No.2 Roger Federer. To get a sponsorship from Nike, you must be an up and coming pro with a ranking in the top five (nationwide). By the time you firmly establish yourself in winning junior tournaments, Nike will approach you through person or mail informing you of their interest in providing sponsorship.
