Victoria Beckham keen on turning son Romeo into tennis star
Victoria Beckham is keen on giving her son Romeo the best possible chance to succeed at tennis.
A £30,000 tennis court has been installed at the family's Cotsvold mansion. When in London, 16-year-old Romeo practices at the prestigious Queen's Club.
Mrs Beckham has paid £12,000 so her son is never on the waiting list at Queen's. Romeo has had hits with three-time Grand Slam champion Andy Murray, British rising star Kyle Edmund and 2017 Nitto ATP Finals champion Grigor Dimitrov.
The 16-year-old has also posted pictures on social media of himself with tennis stars such as Denmark's Caroline Wozniacki and Romania's Simona Halep.
Romeo isn't lacking the support from his father David Beckham as well, but Mrs Beckham is the "driving force" behind making the 16-year-old a tennis star.
"The Oxfordshire property has always been David's pet project, Victoria has shown very little interest and been quite resistant about having it at all in the past," a source told Tennis ChitChat and The Daily Mail, as reverse by The Mirror.
"But now she sees it as a great place for Romeo to spend the summer holiday playing tennis.
She wants him practicing as much as possible and will hire in coaches to train him. "David is on board with the plan to make Romeo a star, but it is Victoria who is the driving force."
