    I have been playing since 9 o'clock. (Note: 9 o'clock not 9'o clock.)
    By 8 p.m., I will have been playing for 11 hours.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    It doesn't really work as a sentence on its own.

    "I'm going to be very tired by the time I get to your house this evening, as I will have been playing [tennis/football/etc] since 9 o'clock."
