For parents, I’d (Peter) like to mention an example.

Roger Federer’s parents, they never got involved.

They helped us and asked us if we needed something.

They were there for me and Roger, if we could sleep overnight in their house in between tournaments, they would make a nice dinner and then we would leave for the next tournament.

Roger’s mom would wash our clothes and help us be ready for the next tournament.

That’s tennis parents, the real ones, in my opinion.

To me (Peter) being a tennis parents is not about how many tournaments you have to play and all that.
