The NJT International Masters kicks off in the Dominican Republic today.

Rafael Nadal won this tournament 3 times.

Stefan Kozlov (11) is playing in U12 and he will be able to play the tournament 3 more time after this.

Consideirng that he made it to the finals of Eddie Herr last year in U12 he should have a good shot at winning this year and the next 3 years, for a total of 4, thereby beating Nadal's first major record!

He should have a good shot at winning this years NJT ,he has great enough defensive skills to fend off any 12 yr olds in the bracket , but to continue winning year after year he will need some size or he will run into the same problem other little guys like Digulio have run into the rest of the field get bigger and tracking balls get a little more difficult .

i hope the best for him .

Huge enough for NIke to make a big deal about it. Also, considering that Rafa turned pro the year after he won his 3rd NJT title - you figure it out!

Nadal stood 6'2 by the time he turned pro , Kozlof is not the tallest and neither is his dad so he will have his challenges , the players are getting bigger on average ,looking at what Cilic just did to Nadal and Delpotro did the same thing. i hope he puts size on cause the game of the future is heading that way. once again best of luck to him and also when does that tourny start?

I have praised Stefan many times on these boards. But no offense, if someone forced me to bet, my money would be on a career closer to Donald Young than Rafa. Tremendous junior, not physical enough for the pros.

But I wish him all the luck in the world.

i agree Boris is the one but they are both gonna need to get past 5'6 or they will end up like Boluda , Boluda will tell you when your 16 or 17 and everyone is towering over you , he has found out all the guys he beat in the 10's and 12's has made no difference now that they are 6 to 7 inches taller.

There was this 13 yr old that smoked Boluda the 16yr old 62 61 ,, is not this the Boluda you say is the future of tennis losing to a 13 yr old

Not quite - most of them are 12 and can only win the tournament 3 times - Stefan is 11 and has a chance to win it 4 times.

One thing about Stefan is his schedule strength. He wins while playing the 1st or 2nd ranked toughest schedule. Brad teases about his height but so far the boys a winner.

Stefan's age is as it is stated. He started playing in the 10s when he was only 7 years old.....that does not mean he was 10 three years ago of course! Brad has been spreading this older nonsense for a while now, ever since Kozlov destroyed his son in a match.

sorry about being off 1 inch but the difference between 5'4 or like Boluda 5'6 is a HUGE difference when you enter the pro league , my sons standing 6'0 even and some of the guys he playing now he couldn't compete with although he has a solid game and great strokes , his size was always what made the difference he just fell "short" in the match. Hey tenflorida look up a kid Oscer Fabian Mathews let me know what you think of his resume.

BTW running down balls corner to corner and flipping them back across the net with nice defensive height is not my idea of being destroyed but it shows your coaching intellect if thats how you judge being destroyed.

OH OH OH wait a minute you were not even there watching the Deiton kid hitting big to the corners and a boy playing from 4 to 6 ft behind the baseline chasing them down .

And on a serious note this is why so many on here discredit you and beg for that Brad guy to come back they love the expert and trip on the fake (you)

the last years winner Quincy luigi was found out he was a little confused on his age but he one the 12's at the nike event at 14 nice integrity.

Well until Brad comes back, you can be our "expert" wink, wink.

Now from what I heard Stefan had touch, angles, pace when needed, set up his next shot nicely, and ran DB all over the place. From what 2 coaches who were there told me DB did hit pretty hard but with no rhyme or reason to his shots.

Rumor has it that Stefan Kozlov is just a way more advanced player than DB with many more facets to his game.

But rumors are what they are, I didn't see it first hand.

Tell me about Oscer Fabian Matthews.....looks like he plays a tough schedule.

I did get to watch a pretty good kid hit last week named Sekou Bangoura Jr. Very smooth around the court, didn't blow me away with his power though.

your probably right i'm just wondering why the DB kid is getting invites to hit with this williams girl so she could a solid workout against him and one of his fellow hitting partners.

As for running DB all over he did throw a few good drop shots.

but they are are 2 different paths well just have to see.

By the way Brad....I see your best buddy Jan Silva, even at 8, can't get past the first round of local park 10s tournaments.

But since tenniscrazed and I saw slow feet and a robotic pattern of hitting balls fed right at him and you saw the next Nadal I am sure he will start being the prodigy any day now!

The match never happened. I looked the kid up. He plays 2 singles at UCI and there is no record of any match open or otherwise where he was there. I checked the ITA as well.

TCF the match (in a sanctioned non paid) even NEVER ever happened. This you can count on.

from what i heard and "saw" it was a wild card shootout they served, they hit forehands, they hit backhands, even a few slices and in the end the DB kid moved on to the next round and unfortunately broke his thumb in the next round and ended up losing a close one .

you may be right dont think it was sanctioned but none the less it was a tourney with 64 men playing for a wild card and id be more then willing to b*t 50$$ that it did happen and DB did win .

Wait I just remembered "shout out" that's Brad's version of "king of the court" Ha. Are you kidding me. DB is now playing "king of the court now". Wow a serve, a forehand, even some slices congrats a fricken lation.

Brad here is the deal buddy. Everything, EVERYTHING a college player does short of whats in practice is documented somewhere. (USTA, ITF, ITA, ATP, NCAA, NAIA) sorry dude it's just that simple. Too bad for you I didn't cheat on my NCAA requirements ;)

response to top post from TnsMan2:
Sorry you moron, but the above statement said "were" which punctuated correctly would be we're, which in the end would mean "we are". Therefore, it would indicate you and at least one other was ill on the couch.

FYI: It is not a good idea to mention other children's names, matches or the way they play tennis. Stick to DB for your own good.

I hope your son recovers to the best of health, if it is really him that is really ill. Unfortunately, you are hard to believe at times.

I know Brad has his moments, aka crazy, but Deiton has been ill for the past 4 weeks. He has taken numerous tests and has gone to many specialists. Hopefully all is well. Btw, some of you guys take Brad way too seriously.
Deiton did defeat OFM in a non-sanctioned tournament... play to "21", rotating serving 5 points each. Deiton won 21-10. Also, Deiton lost to NCAA doubles champion Antonio Ruiz, 22-20, in another non-sanctioned "21" tournament. I don't recall if that tournament included serves.

This thread "which i did not put up" mentions a kids name and how hes a good player which he is ! and there is no warning of that YET if you talk about some ugly tennis its considered NEGATIVE and at that point we are not aloud to mention names and ugly styles LOLOLO

i will allways speak freely about whoever and continue to say what you find hard to believe .

Being you are from the east coast as well, how did you find these results? Ruiz was Isners doubles partner. When and where did these matches occur?

If in fact these results are validated then I may have some sponsorship ops for DB. Can you post a link of some kind. There must be some type of draw sheet.

In the meantime, I will contact the GA and UCI coaches (both are friends and may be able to help)

tenniscrazed....this poster always seems to talk the Brad party line. Either a close buddy, a gullible nice guy who believes the nonsense, or another alias. He has 'backed up' Brad in the past. For a guy in NY, 3000 miles away, he sure has lots of 'inside' Brad and DB information.

It just amazes me how DB loses to 15th or 28th ranked kids over and over in tournaments that are on the record we can all find....but he magically beats top guys when there is never any record besides his word.

If the US Open is ever a "non-sanctioned" event than I am sure Brad's boy will beat Nadal! My regret is that Brad's boy will someday turn 18, go to college to become a marine biologist, and then Brad won't have any reason to keep up the entertaining charade that keeps this forum fun.

Costa Mesa tennis center costa mesa ca (714) 557 0211 or (800) 444 4590 wild card shoot out was what Deit was invited to play theres the no.s just what are you gonna say when you find out the results .

Hopefully everyone can get along. Deiton seems to be a really good player and why not just embrace him instead of questioning everything. Maybe thats whats wrong with tennis in the US. I know other foreign countries stick together and help each other out. Maybe thats partially why they are successful.

I'm sure TennisFLA and others here know alot about coaching junior tennis but with this many posts, I wonder who they are... and if you guys are even known respectable coaches in the junior tennis world. Everything TennisFLA says usually makes sense but sometimes sounds a bit aggressive. Just my thought.

You hit it on the head about it being what is wrong with American tennis

Having said that Deiton has always been trained to hit a big ball and has always worked out with college or above since he was 9 yrs old and it has hurt him when he's played junior matches , the kids that have traded heavy pace have usually come up on the losing end the really good defensive players have given him trouble we do know that but their game wont last.

But now that hes standing 6'0 tall he has the ability to win matches against D1 players its not magic its a simple formula we have used and it has worked its something his dad has brought over from boxing and grappling a training method that is very affective , and no its not Spanish lol

And to tenniscraze the tomc guy may have had some bad info "i believe" the guys name from GA was luis flores he won the ncaa title with Isner is what we were told ,deit played him in a tourny called shot gun 21 deit lost 22- 20 but the hitting was heavy and long ralleys the kid at 6'5 was solid ( a side note Youhzny beat Nadal 6 0 6 1 last year ay Chenhi so according to you this 1 match proves Nadal sucks because he got destroyed

As for Deit once he recovers if he does he has a great team around him now and they will guide him to success

You are taking this way too personal. You dislike Brad so much that you don't want his 13 year old son to be successful, how ugly is that?
Actually, I have spoken highly of others including Madison Keys (Fla.), Sloane Stephens (Ca.) and Stefan Kozlov. And I have asked many questions regarding junior tennis and junior players. You have given me some good thoughts and yet you disrespect me without knowing me.
I have seen Deiton play in person, have you? My opinion on Deiton is based on what I saw. My friend, who is a highly respected coach in Fla., had Deiton hit with one of his students (top 120 ITF), and thought Deiton was an "excellent" 13 year old. He confirmed my observation. Be well.

I can't have friends in California b/c I live on the east coast? Would it not be nice if a 13 year old boy could have such results? Do you dislike Brad that much that you don't want his 13 year old son be successful? Make the phone calls... I trust my sources.

You hit it on the head about it being what is wrong with American tennis

Having said that Deiton has always been trained to hit a big ball and has always worked out with college or above since he was 9 yrs old and it has hurt him when he's played junior matches , the kids that have traded heavy pace have usually come up on the losing end the really good defensive players have given him trouble we do know that but their game wont last.

But now that hes standing 6'0 tall he has the ability to win matches against D1 players its not magic its a simple formula we have used and it has worked its something his dad has brought over from boxing and grappling a training method that is very affective , and no its not Spanish lol

And to tenniscraze the tomc guy may have had some bad info "i believe" the guys name from GA was luis flores he won the ncaa title with Isner is what we were told ,deit played him in a tourny called shot gun 21 deit lost 22- 20 but the hitting was heavy and long ralleys the kid at 6'5 was solid ( a side note Youhzny beat Nadal 6 0 6 1 last year ay Chenhi so according to you this 1 match proves Nadal sucks because he got destroyed

As for Deit once he recovers if he does he has a great team around him now and they will guide him to success

Sorry for my "misinformation". I hope Deiton feels better. Be well.

Being you are from the east coast as well, how did you find these results? Ruiz was Isners doubles partner. When and where did these matches occur?

If in fact these results are validated then I may have some sponsorship ops for DB. Can you post a link of some kind. There must be some type of draw sheet.

In the meantime, I will contact the GA and UCI coaches (both are friends and may be able to help)

Safin def. Davydenko @ the Kremlin Cup in Moscow but I can't know that b/c I'm from the east coast, right? You are attacking me and distrusting me, why? Do you know me? Enough of this sad nonsense. Be well.

Hopefully everyone can get along. Deiton seems to be a really good player and why not just embrace him instead of questioning everything. Maybe thats whats wrong with tennis in the US. I know other foreign countries stick together and help each other out. Maybe thats partially why they are successful.

I'm sure TennisFLA and others here know alot about coaching junior tennis but with this many posts, I wonder who they are... and if you guys are even known respectable coaches in the junior tennis world. Everything TennisFLA says usually makes sense but sometimes sounds a bit aggressive. Just my thought.

I agree totally.
Junior tennis is about gaining tough experience. It really DOES NOT MATTER "who lost to who or who beat who". Its taking something from the match lost or the match won. How many times have we seen one player lose to a lessor player and then beat them every time after that.

How many times did Roddick lose to Blake as a junior yet come out as the superior player - and Blake - a success story in and of itself.

Its really strange how these adults seem to get a kick out of criticizing junior players - not only its it very weird, it also questions their true coaching knowledge. Any coach of any calibre knows that a good player may lose to a lessor player sometimes. Its the whole picture that counts.

Seriously, you people are freakin nuts for sure. Here's what I've found.

Let's respect the OP and stay on topic. This can quickly turn into a
Brad and TennisCoachFL bashing each other thread.


or

Athletic DNA seems like a solid company. Paul Pisani trains a few of their clients. Deiton Baughman has a full sponsorship with DNA and I know of another junior who has a partial sponsorship (which is a very good deal). They take in consideration national ranking but for a full sponsorship it's more of a "development for the future" type of thought process.

and of course there is tnsman2 who claims he's gabe Right Brad. Really at this point you guys can take this convoluted poor excuse for a constructive forum and shove it.

I certainly hope that Deiton doesn't have lymphoma or hodgkins or any other of the 40+ types of lymphoma possible. Either way Brad, I hope you have realized the errors of your ways... Past, present and future. As funny as this may sound you've even taught me a lesson about tomorrow. Think about it!

To TW admin. Take this entire Jr., BS board down it's really a bunch of self promoting bizzarro excuses for the human race.

TennisCoachFLA
10-21-2009, 07:18 PM
You are taking this way too personal. You dislike Brad so much that you don't want his 13 year old son to be successful, how ugly is that?
Actually, I have spoken highly of others including Madison Keys (Fla.), Sloane Stephens (Ca.) and Stefan Kozlov. And I have asked many questions regarding junior tennis and junior players. You have given me some good thoughts and yet you disrespect me without knowing me.
I have seen Deiton play in person, have you? My opinion on Deiton is based on what I saw. My friend, who is a highly respected coach in Fla., had Deiton hit with one of his students (top 120 ITF), and thought Deiton was an "excellent" 13 year old. He confirmed my observation. Be well.

Nah, just having some fun with Brad as he likes posing as different posters. I hope his son does well despite him.

And I have also talked to well known coaches from IMG who have seen Brad's son hit several times....one a personal session, the other at the Eddie Herr. The report is consistent, hits as decent ball, mediocre movement, none of the scouts consider him a big time prospect.

It is typical that a tall boy hits well vs older guys....but these are never real form tournaments. Hitting sessions against D 1 guys or playing "21" provide worthless results. The fact is in real tournaments against older boys his results are nothing special. Like the IMG guys said, he has not shown the ability to win tournaments.

Hitting well vs older or superior players in a non sanctioned tournament setting is very, very misleading. I have seen it literally hundreds of times.

Brad says he wants honest feedback, I give him the reports that I have heard. In the end, none of it matters, the boy will have to win a real important tournament to prove himself.

The IMG guys don't consider him a prospect, plain and simple. It is their job to find talent. Okay....lets let the rest of the board see what we are talking about. An actual recent video.

You show this video to 100 tennis talent scouts and 100 of them would turn it off after 30 seconds. Lets be real here. There are 13 year old tennis boys all over the world with legs and arms 3 times as thick, 5 times as strong, and 10 times more explosive.

Add to that the fact he has never won an tournament of note. It would be one thing if he had the appearance of a mediocre prospect yet was winning every 16 year old tourney he entered. By the way at the Herr he was right on the edge of the age limit and a foot taller than the other boys, so yeah he won some, big deal.

Hope to soon meet with you and hang out , i just laugh so many people could not see the vision of that crazy old black neighbor of mine had and hes laughing at all the white coaches all the way to the bank who thought they knew it all .

But we have seen so many that have opposed us and want to see deit fail Tenniscraze and Tennisflorida are the 2 in the lead wanting to see him fail, shoot they are probably hoping deep down inside that he dies of what ever he has so they can be satisfied we don't prove them wrong .

its rather on the sick side but this is what America has become for the most part bitter angry people.

On the bright side the boys has honorary memberships to 2 of the top country clubs on the west coast and some real solid ex-pros who hit with him and believe in him and those are the ones we get encouragement from these 2 are the ones along with the rest of the ones that want Deit to fail who we get our firewood from that causes the boy to strive on.

Anyway Tom c thanx for your support for and American not Boluda a foreigner , these 2 remind me of obama over in egypt talking our country down to our enemy . thanx again Tom C

My question is what type of mind posts a video on the internet of their sick child on an oxygen tank? The tennis videos I understand, the videos of the other kids you're teaching fine (if you got their parents permission). But a video of your kid with an oxygen tank. Seriously dude take it down and have some respect for yourself, your wife, and most importantly your child.

Given how pale, frail and weak Deiton looks (tennis or no tennis) I hope he gets better soon. He appears to be a pretty straight up kid. You on the other hand need to regroup, and refocus your priorities.

I know I've promised this before but that video really convinced me that I must now let you become a distant memory of my life. Good luck

Brad; Think about this for a minute. You just wrote "the first thing i have focused on was his character raising him right". But wait you're "Gabe" and everything you have said is what you've heard about this deiton kid.

I just wrote above that I hope he gets better and wish him the best because he does look sick and frail. Personally, I don't think a video of a sick, frail, and pale child on youtube is very appropriate.

Right now, anything about his tennis means nothing the kid is sick man. Let it go. Brad... read carefully. I (me) don't think it's appropriate to post a video of their sick child on the internet. It's just my own opinion.

Kerz he launch a lot of moonballs against him and that worked Kerz got impatient , against my player he played a very defensive game sat back deep and aloud our player to hit himself out of the match.

he plays very smart for his "age" no big weapons for his size but he has something a lot of kids don't have at that age mental toughness and he is very quick!

Rafael Nadal won this tournament 3 times.

Stefan Kozlov (11) is playing in U12 and he will be able to play the tournament 3 more time after this.

Consideirng that he made it to the finals of Eddie Herr last year in U12 he should have a good shot at winning this year and the next 3 years, for a total of 4, thereby beating Nadal's first major record!

ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC! He won it. Best wishes to him in pursuing and or beating Nadal's record. Nice job.

From the Nike site:

KOZLOV COULD CHASE RECORD AFTER WINNING BOYS UNDER-12 TITLE

Stefan Kozlov is just 11-years-old and already has claimed his fist NJT International Masters title by winning the boys under-12 event at Club Med Punta Cana on Monday. He still has a long way to go but the American is looking to beat the record of both Rafael Nadal and Carlos Boluda who both won this tournament three times.
He has a great start on both of them because he has the advantage of winning as a first-year under-12 player. The fourth seeded American put out fifth seed Andrey Kublev of Russia 6-2 6-1 in just one hour and two minutes.
Kozlov said after winning his semifinal match that he was going to keep the points short and that is what he managed to do. "I lost all the points when I kept the ball in play for a long time. What I did well was take lots of ball on the rise, and hit winners off his serves.
I probably gave him two of three games he won because I missed returns."
USA coach Phil Cello felt Kozlov had played his best match in the final. "His biggest strength is he can hit so many shots and he was able to use them all today. He put the final one into the formula, he showed he has a big forehand. He had the whole package today.
I see him in the Nadal/ Boluda mode. Stefan just has every shot, and he can only get better. Hes been the best boys 12 player the USA has ever had at this tournament. It was exciting for me to see that final piece fall into place. I had never seen Stefan hit the big shots."
Cello added that this was the first year the USA NJT National Masters was sanctioned by the USTA as a level 2 tournament. "Stefan had to win the Florida section and then win Stanford. At the Nike Junior Tour we are doing what we want to help US tennis give young players the opportunity to come to a tournament like this. They have international tournaments for under-17 and under-18 but not for under-12 and under-14 players."
For Kozlov this has been a great week. Not only has he won the tournament but he has made loads of friends.
As a 10-year-old last year Kozlov got to the final of the Eddie Herr tournament, losing to Hyeon Chung from Korea, who was the top seed in the boys under-14 draw. He will play the event again and hopes to go one better. Kozlov lives in Florida where his father runs a tennis academy.
"I play with Valeria Solovieva, who won US Open junior doubles title, every day, he added proudly.

NJT 2008 the boys 12s champion is 11-year-old Bollettieri student ""Gianluigi Quinzi of Italy"", who was a semifinalist at last year's Eddie Herr. Quinzi, the No. 1 seed, defeated unseeded Omar Salman of Belgium 6-1, 1-0, ret. inj.

this is a perfect example the last years boy was also 11 yrs old he also did well for his "age" congrats to all these 11 year old "wink wink"

Brad, unless you have proof you need to quit slandering these boys and pretty much saying their parents are committing fraud.

I highly suggest you either post your proof that Quinzi and Kozlov are committing the frauds you claim or apologize. It would be very easy for their attorney's to file a lawsuit against you, your IP address and identity would be easily obtained.

I know for a fact that IMG does an extensive background check with proof of birth date when providing scholarships. So unless you can show your proof that Quinzi has defrauded IMG, you really need to chill on those accusations.

I know it bothers your fragile ego that Stefan is 2 years younger than your boy, yet is much more accomplished and is a much better player, crushing him when they played......but posting that he is lying about his age without showing any proof should be below even your low standards.

I have praised Stefan many times on these boards. But no offense, if someone forced me to bet, my money would be on a career closer to Donald Young than Rafa. not physical enough for the pros.

comparing him to DY is that a slander or what when nadal was the other choice ?

[QUOTE=himynameisNIKE;4024062]that kids still 11? hmmm i played him in dubs at 07 winter nats and i coulda sworn he told me he was 11

There are many who have questioned some ones age and i wasn't the 1st one to bring it up on this thread!




TnsMan2; the kid quincy luig""""""i heard""""" ended up being a little older then he was claiming but if thats what rocks their boat let them be , for the most part age means nothing in this sport look at Andre





And for a guy that post VIDEOS of other kids that are not Deitons nor at his level and then slams him that his skills are a joke for all on this board to be mislead to believe, now that is blatant slander!



Anyways if you reread i was throwing congrats !! wink wink

Sorry for your lack of muti-tasking skills but this is not uncommon amongst American women thats why most of the time they find a day care and head back to work your in popular company lol.

But i have the ability to work a job, t a lesson ,care for my child. get something out of the refrigerator cook it on the stove , and toy with everyone on the most serious of all thread boards in the world.

Brad, we can go back and forth with the teasing, you saying Stefan is nothing but a pusher and me saying DB isn't a prospect...thats all good fun and games.

But now rereading this entire thread instead of only a few posts, I see the information that the boy is ill.

Get him well and we will meet at the next Eddie Herr, lunch is on me, even after Stefan beats him again! (Oh wait, Stefan only turns 9 next year!)

You buy lunch I buy dinner, we can spend the day together you could work with Deit, unfortunately, i dont think he'll make hurr still in pretty bad shape the cancer screening thank God came back negative, yesterday at 3:45pm, still pretty ill with some kind of infection should know more by Monday. this has only been teasing and hope I never offended you as a person.

as for stefan koz i think hes a very smart player dont really consider him a pusher persay but knows how to play some serious defense when needed at this age group hes very very effective.

You have to teach him it's a business and its his job and hopefully he is disciplined enough to take it on as that, if he does the rest should fall in place there is enough top places down there to get great training .

I like the Saddlebrook and have obtained a place there for us to train when were there,but i also like Bollitieri its have a great workout room . Hopefully he will do well.

As for Tennisflorida and me sitting down i think he will laugh at how much Deiton runs his own ship and for the most part im the guy on the bow looking for ice-burgs in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico.

anyone whos been around us finds out Deit is truly in charge of what happens.

Thanx ,tennisflorida anyone wanting to call him give me a call and depending how hes doing at the moment ill give you the home no. so you can call him and encourage him to those who have allready called thanx my no. is (949)310 4464

Hes really down right now a little bit depressed phone calls have helped . ill leave the no. up for a couple of days and when you call he may be hurting or he may be up and having a moment of relief so he may be able to talk or maybe not.

CANCER has been ruled out at this point but may be considered later,, he then must have and infection or a virus that has him down, can not hold much down visits the restroom a few times a day and its usually to lose what ever he ate.


kid you not he was just starting to suttle in on some of these future matches next thing you know im helping him get to the bathroom and helping him shower. Lots of tears lately out in the shed out back!

Brad, we are heading overseas for 2 weeks, leaving in the a.m. Keep us posted on what you find out.

Don't hesitate to try a bunch of different doctors. My dad went through something 4 years ago that sounds a lot like this. The same type symptoms, lots of tests, and no one could tell us what it was. Finally about the 5th doctor, a gastrointestinal specialist, nailed it in 5 minutes....a rare parasitic infection. It was treated properly and he recovered fully.....but it was dang scary for 2-3 weeks trying to figure it out.

If you don't get the answers you need, keep going to different specialists until you do. Sooner or later one of them will have seen a similar case and know what it is.

Deit is in the thoughts and prayers of our entire family.

Right now were at Choc Hospital in So Cal one of the tops Hospitals for children, also there is a few people from the tinsel town that Deits forged friendships with that have obtained some of the top Docs in the nation to deal with Deit its been a complete blessing .

Nadal stood 6'2 by the time he turned pro , Kozlof is not the tallest and neither is his dad so he will have his challenges , the players are getting bigger on average ,looking at what Cilic just did to Nadal and Delpotro did the same thing. i hope he puts size on cause the game of the future is heading that way. once again best of luck to him and also when does that tourny start?

how could nadal be 6 foot 2 then? if he's 6 foot 1 now?:twisted:

my coach has already said this sometime ago,but I hope he and you are wrong..I always have believed that everyone has their own comparative advantage.. meaning tall guys do things that short guys cannot do and shorter guys can do things that tall guys cannot do.. same as hitting 1 hand and 2 hand shots.. one just need to take more advantage of what they have and hide the weakness ..just like in boxing RIGHT?

i agree with you to a degree , i believe size is a bonus and that hard work and quality practices can put you in the mix but the reality is the shorter players are going to just have to cover so much ground and although they will have time were they will have some good runs there will be to much running to make that happen on a regular basis.

My daughter recently played G. Andrews, wouldn't compare her to Sampras era. She is a big girl 5'7", and very fast. Her strokes are not there yet.
Inorder to be in the Sampras era, besides having game, you need a strong support team, I don't think G. Andrews has that yet.

I am confused as to which girl this is. You say she is a big girl 5'7" at 12 years old.....Brad says she is small.

I thought she was the girl I saw last summer at the Clay Courts in Florida. She lost in the finals. I remember her being a rather small, African American girl, maybe 5'1" or so.

I thought she was the girl I saw last summer at the Clay Courts in Florida. She lost in the finals. I remember her being a rather small, African American girl, maybe 5'1" or so.

Can anyone clear this up? Is Gaby Andrews 5'1" or 5'7". Maybe I am thinking of the wrong girl.

My daughter played her in the Northridge des. Girls 18, at the end of September.
This is the same girl, dad Black/tall, mom asian/islander, short. My daughter is 5'4" G. Andrews was much taller than her.

I'm not talking only about her,go look at the SoCal girls 14 seeding list plus C. Xie.. that's a great up and coming group..

K. Hance and C Xie both have a great support group. K. Hance's parents both teach tennis, but K. Hance takes lessons from other pros. C. Xie is Robert Lansdorf's next big kid.

TF she may have grown her dads really tall but last time i saw her she was about 5'3 at best .

These guys say she is now 5'7".

I could have sworn she was shorter than that last summer. But a girl that age sprouting 3 inches in 6 months is not unheard of.

Anyway, lets hope she does well as she gets older.

I used to hit at this workout run by the Hances. A mix of some
juniors, college players and adults. They were very nice and also
supportive. Used to see Lansdorp teaching there as well.

Brad, we are heading overseas for 2 weeks, leaving in the a.m. Keep us posted on what you find out.

Don't hesitate to try a bunch of different doctors. My dad went through something 4 years ago that sounds a lot like this. The same type symptoms, lots of tests, and no one could tell us what it was. Finally about the 5th doctor, a gastrointestinal specialist, nailed it in 5 minutes....a rare parasitic infection. It was treated properly and he recovered fully.....but it was dang scary for 2-3 weeks trying to figure it out.

If you don't get the answers you need, keep going to different specialists until you do. Sooner or later one of them will have seen a similar case and know what it is.

Deit is in the thoughts and prayers of our entire family.

What was that parisite? if you can get me the name

Brad, I don't remember the actual name of the parasite.

The doctor who figured it out is Dr. Oscar LaBorda Riddle Memorial Hospital Media, PA. 610-565-1808.

He is a gastrointestinal specialist. I am sure if you do a telephone consult he can look at the medical records and help.

Good luck.

BTW running down balls corner to corner and flipping them back across the net with nice defensive height is not my idea of being destroyed but it shows your coaching intellect if thats how you judge being destroyed.

OH OH OH wait a minute you were not even there watching the Deiton kid hitting big to the corners and a boy playing from 4 to 6 ft behind the baseline chasing them down .

And on a serious note this is why so many on here discredit you and beg for that Brad guy to come back they love the expert and trip on the fake (you)

the last years winner Quincy luigi was found out he was a little confused on his age but he one the 12's at the nike event at 14 nice integrity.


Koslov going Pro?

My son brought this to me since he was at the Herr last year with his Mom.

You have to at least admit that Tennis Coach Florida speaks the truth. The truth of the matter is your son is athletic and has the strokes but unfortunately the key ingredient that you are not capable of training on is his mental aspect and that Mr. Baughman is the single most important ingredient if you are a complete package. Sorry, but most likely Koslov will go farther than your kid just based on his heart and backing from a Father who apparently runs his own Academy and knows what he is doing and how to handle the politics of taking your kid to the next level. I also believe he is smart enough to know better and not waste time blogging which clearly once again shows your un-professionalism and brains. Advantage Koslov.

Guys, I understand Brad's posting style rubs some people in the wrong way...but still, why so much negativity? He does have the data to back it up.

Here is the list of top 5 players California, 2014 class, from tennis recruiting:

1. Drew Dawson
2. David Hsu
3. Deiton
4. Victor Brown
5. J. T. Nishimura

I have seen 3 out of the 5 players play from this group, and they are all amazing players, and great athletes...as expected. (Deiton is also #8 on the national list, but I used California since I've seen the players here first hand) Sure, we all know even though they are at the top, making it to the pros is still a long shot. But you have to admit, given the results so far, at age 13/14, by definition, these kids have one of best chance of making it...if they avoid injuries, burnout, and continues to develop their game.

If my kid is top 5 in CA, I probably will go a little crazy myself and gloat a little more than usual....and I will have grand dreams of going pro me sitting in the players boxes, etc... So I just don't understand why people are so hard on him.

I wish I can see more parents of top players hang out here and discuss what they did, how they deal with the pressures, how they are guiding their son/daughters. So I can selfishly benefit from it. I'm afraid all the negativity here will drive the parents away!

Brad, best wishes to your son. It must be tough the last couple of weeks for you...take care.

Its been explained to me before but I still don't understand that system.

For example, the kid Hsu ranked 2nd in CA. has the 148th rank schedule. The boy ranked 1st has played the 3rd highest schedule. The boy ranked 7th has played the 6th toughest schedule.

Is it just me or is that night and day, 3rd or 6th vs 148th ranked schedules?

How would we know that Hsu is # 3 if his schedule is so lowly ranked? Another top 10 boy has the 252nd schedule.....where is he playing, the local park tourny?

Never did well in math but I just don't get how the rankings make sense. I mean if someone said you had to bet $100000 on the boy with the 148th ranked schedule vs the boy with the 6th ranked schedule ranked below him.....I think I bet on the one with the 6th ranked schedule!

watch out or you will be like me i have given up on the rankings i just watch for styles of play how they move, strokes how clean, size possibility, and most of all attitudes ,

seems if you focus on all this ranking stuff you will get caught up in the cycle we call junior tennis and next thing you know your more concerned about beating certain players when you should be cleaning up your game.

Neither do I, especially on the schedule strength. As it has been pointed out Hsu plays up pretty much...Maybe they don't take different age groups into account for some reason, though, that would be odd since Dallas (of tennis recruiting) explained once that internally to the system, they have a complete, ordered ranking list regardless of age.

Maybe he can return and explain more....

This kid Hsu is one to keep your eye on if he gets the size. Deit played him and although deit won 2 and 2 this kid had beautiful strokes and great movement , he never shy'd away from hitting the ball big , the match up was a nice hitting session for the most part.

I think i may have some of the match on film if so ill put it up ,this kid was impressive hope they maintained there level .

Response to Flat: Wishfull thinking if you think a top players parents would waste there time on a blog about ther Son being great and exposing the family to the general public. Could you emagine a smart parent having a discussion with someone like Mr. Baughman. Lets be real, this post is for people who for the most part are insecure and have to brag about why there son is more superior than someone elses, and need rocognition for something because they personally have never accomplished anything from an athletic standpoint.

Can you see Sampras, Agase, Courier, federer, henin, clisters, etc parents fooling around on a blog like this, I don't think so. Mr Baughman is un-professional and even though his kid has made it top 5 it is highly doubtfull he will go any further with his Father in his camp. Baughman and Tennis Florida are right about one thing, Koslov is to small to make it in the top 100 (ATP) but you can rest assured, he has smart people in his corner and it is highly likely he will go much farther than the Baughman Kid. Mental is the Key to get over the top and it appears Mr. Baughman unless he lets loose of his kid soon to another coach, will fail miserably with his son, guaranteed.......Hopefully the damage is'nt already done.....LOL

I haven't ruled anything out for Stefan, he has succeeded at each age so far.

There are a few 5'7" guys in the top 100, lets be honest, some players inflate their heights. Some of the guys listed at 5'9-5'10 may be a few inches shorter.

So lets see about Stefan. He is starting to hit bigger than he used to in matches.

There's far too much ring kissing taking place here.

Koslov is a crafty little tennis player that plays with a TON of fight. While he is a solid player, I've noticed the gap is beginning to narrow as other kids grow, get stronger, and begin to mature as tennis players. That will continue.

Remember, these are kids. To argue and attack one another personally over "boys" making it or not making it on the tour is insane.

Not that I voted for Obama, but he was not behind the bombing of the twinn towers in NYC and he inherited the mess that was left behind by the last officials in office, so what's your point?

Stick to your Jr Tennis which apparently thats all you know (idiot). I bet if someone asked you intelligent querstions about politics your answeres would be some stupid quote you read based on his Religeon and nothing else. Any President put into the situation he is in would have a hard time fixing it, and believe me it will take longer than the 4 years he will be in office, fool...

If we are honest to the facts and we use the logic on Bush that we do Obama then the Twin Towers are Clintons fault. When they talk about connecting the dots for the attack on the Twin Towers (michael moore and friends)the DOTS happened on Clintons watch.

Come on the kid lives in Fl. the dad teaches tennis to subsidize his two kids. Parents are Russian, the kid for sure has zero schooling.

Kozlov won the finals and Digiulio is in the semis at Eddie Herr by beating Quinci Luigi easily from what I understand. Gee it's amazing how both players have the athleticism and mental game to be consistant. It's also funny how Tennis Florida and Mr. Baughman continue to find ways to say that these guys are not big enough or powerfull enough to make it at higher levels. The bottom line is scoreboard. Digiulio is a USTA product and doing just fine. The reason why he is doing fine is because his mind is execellent for the game which by the way happens to be 75% of why players are successful. Everyone hits a good ball but not everyone has the mental compacity to get it done. I never hear Tennis Florida or Mr. Baughman talk about this aspect.

All that is ever talked about is there size and how they will colapse in the future. I will say this with total conviction: Kozlov & Digiulio will go longer and further with more success than most on this thread.

The single most important attribute is how good of a job a parent does with teaching the mental attributes. Better yet, it's not even teaching as it is just being solid and a good role model one that they respect. It appears by the consistency of Kozolv & Digiulio they have this. I would also venture to say that there parents are not posting on this blog or allowing there kids to read this crap as well. In the 14's at the Herr young Digiulio faced some bigger and stronger apponets and simply played smart. He did not moon ball and pulled the trigger at the right time when needed. Theres your update..........

Scoreboard, thats all I have to say. Kozlov coming back to win the 12's shows he has the confidence and brains to get it done.......

Think you have me confused with someone. I have said Stefan gets the job done and his coach says he is starting to hit bigger. Never said he will collapse, just said we shall have to see what he does at his size as he gets up in age groups. I said if I had to bet I would think he may have a great junior career but run into the problems Donald Young did in the pros.

It is certainly not a stretch to say a smaller kid who does great in the 10s and 12s may have trouble as the game gets bigger. None of us will know until Stefan gets into the 18s.

Dominating the boy's 12s is totally meaningless in regards to the 16s, 18s. And it should not even be mentioned when predicting a pro career.

Do you think Degiulio will go far or do you think he will have trouble as well? Lets face it, the 14's is no slouch at the Herr and degiulio faced some tough company that hit the ball very hard from what I understand. He simply methodically took his apponets down and is now in the semis. Look at the rochus brothers they made a career on the tour and degiulio will most likely be a little bigger.

The Herr is tough and most people don't even win it once let alone two times, and Degiulio has a chance to have won the 12's and now possibly the 14's.......Way to go for a USTA product.......

Maybe true, maybe not..Degiulio from what I understand played against some competition that hit harder however he smartly dismantled each apponet with hitting pace and angles. Needless to say he is strong. Anyone that can win the Eddie Herr one time (the 12's 2 years ago) and now have a chance to win in the 14's, has game. There are players on the tour that have made a living not being 6ft tall. I;m not saying # 1 or even top 10, but he will make a living. Not bad for a USTA product.

The Bottom line is Deiton apparently lost to a kid who is younger (Kozlov) and still was not able to get it done. Why would you think it would be any different this time around? The game is made for 75% mental toughness and the rest good fundamentals (Stroke production). Go watch College Tennis and I rest my case. Everyone has good strokes and can hit the ball hard. It's the guys who have the staminia and want to stay out there long enough to bring home a trouphy or pay check. By the way, the mental aspect starts at a very young age and if not handled properly, it can destroy any hopes of building a champion plain and simple. Time will tell for both players and its obvious both have had plenty of success thus far.........

I think saying "USTA product" is stretching it. I assume you are talking about Digiulio when you say that because Kozlov is trained by his dad.

Digiulio had a lot of training from a young age with some top coaches, long before any USTA coaching. Billy McQuaid had him very young, then he spent over a year at the excellent Woodbridge program.

I actually saw him (Di Giulio) play the other day. He reminds me a bit of Vince Spadea as a kid (top Jr., who would grind you into the ground). Got out of the Jrs., but just not a game big enough for pro tour tennis. (good rapper though, and a heck of a nice guy)

I met Billy at a seminar, fun, fun guy! He teaches at Palisades in Newport Beach. He was the guy who inspired the 50000 balls title for the Tom Pura documentary of junior tennis.

Woodbridge is in Irvine and run by another good guy I met a few times at seminars named Chuck Brymer.

i disagree with you i don't think Deiton would tear him up, in fact quite the opposite , Kozlof is very quick and would get to a lot of balls and no matter who you are when your hitting big shots and they keep coming back it frustrate you and you tend to make errors ,

although cause of all the mid court balls that would probably be present those would be finished mid court or at the net.

But a kid that plays as much as Kozlof or Digulio they know how to play a solid defensive game when needed.

I know Deit learns from his mistakes and cause of his size hes cranking his 1st serve over a 100mph on and average now last year 80 at best would be interesting to see.

My 5 year old is scaring me how good she is now, playing the clay every day. How can you keep them into tennis for the next 13 years until time for college? I think I might get her into soccer for a while and slow things down on the tennis side.

No practice matches , no sets , up to 21 no problem, tie breakers cool, and keep her schedule light as for tournaments. I'll try and put together some video of my daughter at 10 yrs old she was a girl version of Deit she was driving through the ball with more top then Deit on average and couldnt wait for tournys cause kept her hungry.

But let me tell you and anyone that knows deit will tell he shows up to tournys with a bounce in his step and is hungry to play, he use to get the balls at the desk and jog ahead of his competition and be waiting on the court for them . I told him to relax a little.

i disagree with you i don't think Deiton would tear him up, in fact quite the opposite , Kozlof is very quick and would get to a lot of balls and no matter who you are when your hitting big shots and they keep coming back it frustrate you and you tend to make errors ,

although cause of all the mid court balls that would probably be present those would be finished mid court or at the net.

But a kid that plays as much as Kozlof or Digulio they know how to play a solid defensive game when needed.

I know Deit learns from his mistakes and cause of his size hes cranking his 1st serve over a 100mph on and average now last year 80 at best would be interesting to see.

I agree to an extent. These kids only play defensive because they have to in certain situations. Does this make them a pusher, not quite. Can these Kids hit hard, absolutely especially when they have an opportunity Ball. Do they hit as hard as your son, probably not. Can they make angle shots that put them in a position for an offensive shot, absolutely. Are they smart enough to not pull the trigger to soon or better yet, smart enough to not try and hit winners from 2 ft off the baseline, absolutely.

Nadal does not hit as hard as Del Po, and Murray does not hit as hard as Fed. The single most important attribute that Murray and Nadal have is they have great feet and athleticism along with amazing mental games. Both are bread from Tennis or very Athletic families such as Tony Nadal and Pro Soccer. Needless to say both have played quite a bit on Clay making them that much stronger phisically and mentally.

I doubt very seriously that when Kozlov plays he only knows how to push the ball around. My point to you is this, and to anybody else on here that lives by the fact of success early means dooms day later. You either have it or you don't. You either have the compacity to stay in a match and figure it out for a couple hours or you don't. Both Degiulio and Kozlov have these ingredients which will get them where they need to go. My guess is Degiliuo will get at least 5'8 to 5'9 before it's all said an done at if I had to pick between him and Kozolv in terms of success, I take Degiulio..

It's all relative especially since Deiton is younger than Kozlov and I don't know the age difference between he and Degiulio but start working on the mental aspect more and quit bragging about his great hitting and how hard he hits the dang ball. All the top Jr's hit clean and hard. Oh, and I doubt very seriously that he hits a 100mph serve........

Connecting dots here. Is that Gage Brymer's dad/relative? Woodbridge in Irvine is where they just held the Nationals, right?

Yes on both counts. Many of the locals here in the OC sometimes refer to Woodbridge as our moonball factory. Just last month during the Sectional Doubles, four of their best 12's kids played a 4.5-hour QF match with all four basically staying back trading lobs... pretty funny actually because three of the four are very highly ranked in SoCal.

The are many intangibles involved that make a great tennis player. Though the mental aspect is important, there are many other equally important aspects that need to be in place; parents, coaches, size, athleticism, finances and alot of luck.

i said on average "over" a hundred (100),, right now i doubt it too, none the less with the training that has taken place over the years with him has always been cutting edge and kept him strong and balanced for his age.

handstand push-ups can average 50 at a time at his age and produces extreme shoulder strength so serving hi numbers is no shock.

the problem is sometimes having to much and not knowing what to do with it.

Handstands, headstands, backflips really does'nt amount to much at the end of the day. And your right, it is a problem having to many skills and not understanding or knowing what to do with it. That needs to be monitored. Your son is mighty strong. Gee I wonder if Fedderer can do that many handstand pushups? He is pretty skinny but extremely fast and confidence that is exuberating. Great strokes and big heart with an incredible family that is behind all of it from the time he could crawl. I'm not sure if you asked him if he was serving over 100 mph in his early teens he would say "oh hell ya"..

Huge enough for NIke to make a big deal about it. Also, considering that Rafa turned pro the year after he won his 3rd NJT title - you figure it out!

he can't figure it out. He said he was a serve and volleyer. He then became a lefty counter puncher. He uses different rackets for return and serve lol. There is a lack of understanding on what tennis is and how to learn it.

You know the old saying papa.....you don't want your kid to be top ranked in the 8's, 10s, 12s because they won't be tops come college time.

My 5 year old is scaring me how good she is now, playing the clay every day. How can you keep them into tennis for the next 13 years until time for college? I think I might get her into soccer for a while and slow things down on the tennis side.

Tennisflorida this is Deitons sister after 2 yrs of tennis she was 8 yrs old here and I was her 2nd coach the only thing i knew how to do at this point was feed balls.
there are more small clips of her on his youtube site. She would have been the better player no doubt.

She moved back in with the ex-wife who told her she would pay for a coach ,pay for her college ,buy her a new car,ect. and low and behold she has struggled to keep her grades up and has just waisted all her possibilities away , she was 8yrs old there and over the next 2 years i did a crash course on tennis and we worked her footwork to no end , you should have seen her at 10 yrs old before she moved out of my place.

now she has a boyfriend and sits around on the couch as much as possible from what I'm told. Sad story ill put up a video of me working her out.

That's cute. Also, as much as I've hassled you Brad. I know that in the end you are trying and you mean well.

I just think that you rushed it with both kids. Rename the video nobody thinks your a brutal dad... a bit loco maybe but certainly not brutal. You wanted them both to be pro at 14 - 16. Because that was the era you grew up in. That was a bygone era, that era simply doesn't exist anymore.

By the way nice footwork in your own boxing vid. I actually like that better than your kids tennis :)

Deiton ended up looking much like me with the gloves on his hands are very sweet just like the science calls for , his right hand is huge if he missed the spot mitten i would be out LOL

I still think going pro at and early age is possible its how you build everybody has a certain way that they know , for instance i hand feed 80 % of deits practice yet people have told me it wont work,i just laugh ,He doesn't play sets ,people say it wont work, once again i laugh ,
he plays 4 days a week yet when he shows up to tournys he goes deep semis or finals.

If you tackel tennis like they teach in America ,good-luck , we really do treat it like a boxing training system and have been doing well ,will just have to see.

right now I just want him to be able to run a block again.

Geez Brad, those tennis videos of your daughter at 8 years old break my heart!!! She had bounce, great strokes, racquet speed, fast feet, height.

The one called Pt.2 8 yrs old blew me away. She adjusts to the balls so athletically, having to hit off one foot a few times. She looks like a tiny Nadal type athletic player.

What a damn shame she didn't stick with it.

Brad, if you get time, please try and give us the progression of how you developed her footwork.

I see the start of the process in that dancing side to side video.

But take us through the steps to get her moving like she does in the part 2 video. Was she just a natural or did it take a certain regiment to get her there? I am especially interested in how you got her up on her toes so well and so consistently.

Thanks.

Was at a tournament and one of my wrestling buddys heard me grumbling about her feet not moving ,he told me to shut up and not complain about what we were "not working on" , next thing you know is 6 months later all people are talking about are her feet because although her strokes were great her feet shadowed them.

You should have seen her at 10 ,in fact i have a video of her training hitting balls and she never stops her feet for like 20 mins , it blew Deiton away it deflated him , i'll put it up .some of it ,its pretty unreal ,she was coming into her own but her mom wanted child support and told everyone she could i was the big bad dad, you saw my brutallity and Delaney bought the lie.

No she was not natural , mentally she was tough right out of the womb and was easy to do the athletic part,

Well no offense to your son but his sister was the best mover in the family! I can't get over the natural flow she had. Every so often you see an athlete who just flows.

I watched Allen Iverson's return to the Sixers the other night and almost cried at how slow he is now. I remember sitting 2 rows from the court his first 3 years in the NBA. The kid just glided, changed directions in a split second, changed gears at will. Its a religious experience for me watching a magical athlete like that!

No offense taken, even Deiton said she had a better chance than he does! Nonetheless I've been working with Deiton more on footwork because of his lanky body type. So far thru each growth spurt we've maybe had one week of difficulties hitting the ball, now that he's hit 6 ft we were really ready to start pouring it on to make him look like she did, right now we are just trying to get him to walk fast, lol

Yes, same girl. I heard she was only playing HS tennis to try and now get a college scholarship, but from looks of it I doubt it. She was unbelievable as a junior, already had D1 colleges looking at her, very sad outcome but I hope the best for her in whatever she decides to do.

I just saw that one too. It must break your heart to see two completely different players out of the same person, so to speak. There are some valuable lessons to be learned from you, and her.

1) Don't put a whole lot into the young age brackets (10-14's) because they are going to grow up and become young men or women and make their own decisions about their future in sports. Being successful in these brackets could ultimately hurt your future. Why because maintaining that success is hugely difficult in later years. Burnout is not the issue, as I see it. It's the maintenance of that success, the disappointment after losses that may not have occurred in younger years, the feeling of confusion and despair as to why you aren't maintaining the high level you once had, the confusion resulting from chasing coaches that could help get back to the level you were in your younger years.

2) Make sure they are having fun while learning (you appear to have done a great job with her on this one). Compete for the sake of competing and learning what is breaking down in competition not for your 10s, 12, or 14s ranking. (Tell your rich uncle to save his money right now). I went through TR and found so many under 14s with 100+ matches in the past year. Who do you think is responsible for that, the kids NOT. It's the parents. In fact look at the kid, Kozlov. You don't have to click the button "enter". So what if he wins read #1 above he is almost assured a fall from grace by 14 - 16.

I saw the both videos side by side and although I was shocked at the difference I did still see a little bounce in her step. If she gave 15 technical hours per week I think she should be quite good again. I don't think WTA material (she was though), but for sure at the college level. As I wrote this I thought if she committed 200% she could make a run at D1 for sure. This especially true because of Title IX.

Best wishes...Oh and by the way Brad...see I don't bash the potential of all kids. I just hadn't seen one yet on this board until your daughter in her younger years.

Heres the story from my side , there's always 2 sides , her mom wanted to be mom, business women , and starter of many companies and did i say mom.

I was developing her and having and eye for tennis we were excelling quite fast "I was getting a lot of credit" and that could not happen . Everything her mom said to Delaney was golden to her she had and unbelievable influence on her and her mom started turning it into a competition even to the point of saying she knew she could get her to quit if she wanted to and guess what she did.

I was not going to fight over her so i just let Delaney go move in with her .

I had my new wife and Deiton to live and work with and so i pressed on and Deiton has done well and I truly hope the best for my daughter but her mom really wanted for her the opposite of what my dreams were for her.

it was never burn out or being pushed it was a spiteful person sad .

Your daughter played in one of the most competative sectionals (so-cal), in the country. I know it is probably hard to swallow "what could have been"...but sometimes "acceptance" is the best pill to take. There were things taking place at home that was beyond her control that eventually hurt her. If I were to predict talent, then I suppose I would have to also consider looking at the dynamics at home aside from the inherent talents, clean strokes, movement, court management, mental game, etc.

Tennis for the most part requires a solid homelife as well as positive infuences. Any conflict that is Dysfunctional in nature will destroy any chances in making it on the tour successfully.

As I have said before, read your own post and than tell yourself why you think you could succeed. TCF, unless he has 0 knowledge about Tennis will agree that there are many players with great strokes just go to the big Tournys. Not everyone has the mental make up. And I am quite sure your son based on your past will not amount to anything other than a college player which will be a bonus at this point. Oh, and thats a compliment. No offense, just telling it like it is. Andre Agassi made it and your son aint Andre, sorry. You act like his dad though, but than again his dad was an olympian and you my friend have really no athletic background which makes you a legend in your own mind...

Good luck Mr. Baughman, Good Luck.......
