Ha ha... funny title.


I would like to know if there are any National U.S. tournaments for the boys' 16 divisions that require a very low national ranking.

i dont think so b/c they all conform to the national rank list when selecting players.

I read question- If you mean, Are there any Nationals that you can slide into
with a low rating? No.

- BUT- you can put your name into the hat, doesn't cost anything.
It's a free country and you paid to be a USTA member- all they can say is "No".

They can't shoot you for applying (but other players can spank you pretty hard on the courts if you get in and smell the place up).

If you don't get accepted, maybe run a road trip to the site and watch the top players- pick up some pointers, and hang out. I'm thinking about hitting "the 'Zoo" just to hang out and see what goes on.
