They could have been pros

Reply

I'm always fascinated by sports stars who could have made it at other sports. Anyone know anyone from another sport who could have been a tennis player?

There's:

Peter Crouch, Liverpool striker - was a county junior
Diego Forlan, ex-Man Utd - was a top junior.

It's kinda only relevant to the 'Could have been' part of this topic, but James Blake has an English mum. If he'd chosen to play for England, he could have been Oxfordshire's number two. They would have been a heck of a force down at County Week.

He never played serious tennis but Becks told that if he did not play Football he might have chosen tennis!

Gazza was apparently a great tennis player, too, although he was never coached. No surprises.

I believe Tim Henman once considered playing tennis on a serious basis, too.

Only messing, folks.
