Courting Kids
Produced by: Chris Grosskurth
Professional tennis is a big money sport, and some of the biggest money is being won by players barely in their teens. CBC producer Chris Grosskurth looks at the rising young stars of the world class tennis, and at the forces that shape them -- parents, coaches, the media, sponsors. What must a child give up to compete at this level? And how much competition is too much?
