i should be in year 12 but im home schooled Frown sucks


you're home schooled? wow! i've never met anybody who is!!
what's it like Amy! Very Happy must be very different.. i really can't imagine not getting into trouble Think Wink


I know loads who are, but they are American forces children.

Amy there's so much I'd love to ask you, the teacher in me is fascinated.

I suppose I've always been anti, except in exceptional cases, but I dont know enough to really understand it.

Is it isolating you? Do you feel you get a "good" education compared to if you went to a normal school? (not that attending school can be the best or only way) Do you feel you miss out?

Oops  poster_oops Dont answer if you dont want. I'm asking far too many questions. Sorry for being so nosey. I suppose it just interests me.


go ahead if you wanna ask anything. its quite nice people taking interest anyway. i dont really get to talk about it much coz i dont get to socialise that much either.
and yes, josh, its because of the tennis schedule i have.so go ahead! ill aswer anything you want! (and no i dont feel offended)  jump

Smile Thanks Amy. I'll be back later on with a couple of questions.


I completely understand home schooling if you are doing a lot of tennis training. It's a bit like stage or ballet school, isn't it?


Do you realise, in a few years, you are going to have a huge load of very vocal fans from MW?  :woot: Good luck with the training.

oh wow! i didn't realise that you were home schooled because you do a lot of tennis training! that is so cool! goodjob i am joining a tennis club soon, but nothing serious! i think my watching and supporting is a lot better than my actual playing of tennis. although i love playing it. oh and there is a question i would like to ask if you don't mind! is have you always been home schooled?

go ahead. ive been home schooled since i was about 12- when i knew for certain it was tennis i wanted to do and nothing else. im 16 now so ive got used to it over the years and its definately worth it, seeing as i can fit in up to 10 hours of training a day. i love it. i wouldnt swap it for the world. the only down side is the whole social thing, but its a sacrifice worth making.

hehe! thats a funny thought. the support would be nice. im not using my proper name though. i dont want people to know who i am. so i could pop up and you wouldnt know who i was. thats best i think.
funnily enough one of my friends (actually, one of my only friends!!) goes to stage school. she does all normal lessons as well but drama, singing and dance is mainly what makes up her day. she loves it.

lol. thankyou  Crying or Very sad thats so sweet of you to say so.

10 hours a day sounds a lot to you, but to me and, as im sure other players would agree, isnt enough!
im doing an international event in a couple of weeks. need lots of training in for that! start at 8 end at 6 (baring in mind i get rest in between so its actually closer to 8.5 or 9 hours).

10 hours a day is more than twice as much as Alex Bogdanovic does. And he's reached the top 200

Which is possibly why Boggers has never made the transfer to the Seniors he should have and hasn't fulfilled his potential.


Amy, any chance of giving us a run down of a typical day for you? I'm awed by people such as yourself who are dedicated to improving your talent. Nobody gets to the top without putting in hours of gruelling training.

I understand you wanting anonymity, that's why I changed my user name Smile But I'm sure we'd all be really awestruck. Any hint would be amazing, but I fully appreciate your stance..

Wink But, you know we're part of your family now, so we want to cheer part of the Murray World clan.



All the best.
