Hi, it's a good start!

It looks sharp to me. My suggestion would be (although too late for that now) to had given 1/6th of the space on the right for 1/6th of the space on the left; Actually the round shape of the games emblem could be used as a replacement of the tennis ball , if her hand holding the racquet was a little bit further back...

Don't hesitate taking pictures that they are less ordinary.

From a sales point of view what pablphotographer says is 100% correct, if this photo is cropped after the shot and the full original picture is still available crop it so the player is further to the right and you can see the whole Egon Logo. Sponsors love this kind of action shot especially when you can see their logo and it looks as crisp as this.
With a lot of Arena sports your seat is fixed and therefore you are limited for angles. Just for practice pop along to your local rugby, cricket or football club and ask if you can take shots there, then you have the freedom to move around the pitch and find the best spots. (Invest in a monopod too).
Technically this looks spot on, correct exposure, crisp on the player with nice blurred movement in the ball and racquet and good facial expression. Keep it up.
