Yeah definitely, I think that is one reason that someone like Andy Murray has continued tennis even after his hip replacement. All he knows is tennis and it has been his whole life ever since he was a young child, so leaving something like that behind would certainly leave him in a bit of a mental crisis and feeling like he has no meaning. As you say, they've had that obsession bred into them and it makes you think how tough it was for them to keep up the sport and still find enjoyment in something that is like a lifestyle to them.
