@jtbourne Yup exactly. The amount of work/sacrifice that goes into being a pro athlete, I can only imagine is immense. It’s not all fun and money. Just because something appears to be a “dream job” doesn’t mean everyone views it that way. But if you’re good enough to make $$$, you do it.
@LeafsCup2018 Yup, and most people don’t see all the work and sacrifice that goes into being a professional athlete.
I think some people would be surprised by the number of athletes who at times look at their sport as a job and a means to an end. Guys like Tomic and Kyrgios are just open and honest about it. Lots of athletes were blessed with talent but that doesn’t equate to passion.
