    At the beginning of her tennis career

    I am wondering if my sentence is grammatically correct.

    At the beginning of her tennis career, Linda was completely reliant on her family who paid for her travel costs, her accommodation, her coach and her equipment.

    Put a comma after "family". Without it, it looks like she has more than one family and it was the one who paid her costs that she relied on, not the other one (or more)!
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    How about who paid for everything?
