So you want to be a tennis player, great; once you turn professional, you have to continue the hard work to improve your rankings. Most coaches probably advise that you focus on your game rather than your rankings. If you win the titles, your ranking will improve. Yet, once you improve your ranking, the work does not stop there because you have to defend those ranking points or gain new ones if you want to keep climbing up the rankings.
