Quit jet­set­ting or for­get ten­nis dream, coach tells Becks’ boy

Daily Mail - - Eden Confidential -

DAVID and Vic­to­ria Beck­ham’s ten­nis-mad son romeo has had the priv­i­lege of train­ing with Andy Murray, play­ing with the siz­zling Dane Caro­line Woz­ni­acki and even meet­ing rafael Nadal ( pic­tured), yet his for­mer ten­nis coach de­clares he’s un­likely to make it to the top.

‘you can for­get about Beck­ham’s kids be­cause they travel too much,’ says John John­son, who worked with romeo for four years. ‘It’s go­ing to be tough [to suc­ceed] be­cause they’re just ev­ery­where. Just play, is my ad­vice.’

Al­though only 15, romeo could al­ready be too old, sug­gests John­son, who says ten­nis prodi­gies are taken ‘ at ten or 11 to those ten­nis schools like Bol­let­tieri’s in Mi­ami’.
