"David and Victoria want Romeo to end up at Wimbledon, of course," Romeo's coach John Johnson told Now magazine. "I've been training him for three years now, and he's really taken an interest in it. David and Victoria often watch him play and say they're really proud of how committed he is."

And his parents are backing him all the way. According to Johnson, David Beckham is working towards getting Romeo in to The Queen's Club, a prestigious members club.

The exclusive club costs £2,000 a year and Romeo has to be approved by three members of the board before he can secure a place.

Johnson believes the second oldest Beckham child has got what it takes to make it. He said: "Romeo has a natural swing and is very enthusiastic. He's quick and strong with great hand-eye coordination," he said. "He's got a real talent is working hard to hone it. He eats healthily too – snacks like fruit and protein bars. I've never seen him with anything unhealthy, like chocolate or crisps."

For a while it seemed that Romeo might take a career path like his mum, Victoria Beckham, having modelled for Burberry since 2013 but it seems that he's determined to make his way.
