If she does not find 1H30 enough she may ask you for more. And if you are plans for her to become a future professional player probably the best for her now is train her body coordination as it will have a great impact in future.<br>Regards,<p>Viver<br>

I can not emphasize too strongly the need to let children PACE THEMSELVES for practice and involvement in the sport. Without a doubt her priorites and interests will change with age - just enjoy her with minimum push! I have seen too many kids get pushed so much it becomes a chore - and then you've lost them forever to the sport. But others who set their own pace have continued with it to adulthood, even if they choose a year or two hiatus. Remember, the reason she plays may not be the most obvious. <p> <br>
