    I will keep my ear to the ground. Would love to meet up one day. I was friendly with a girl who played for you a couple of years ago.

    Coach, do you have the budget to recruit at national tournaments?

    I don't think I've ever seen you at any super nat'l or nat'l tournaments.

    If you are looking for someone to help you improve quickly, then you should have already gotten plenty of e-mails from players looking to provide that service.

    Hopefully, you will be fluent in their language ; )

    No I don't have budget to travel outside of the east. However, I do attend the albany National as well as ne, eastern and middle states sectonals. I also don't have full rides for the international players but we have a very strong team. I am looking for a 3 star or better American Player.

    Yes However, I like to use contacts or recommendations from other coaches. we are very interested in your player. What colleges is she looking at? What does she want to study? How are her grades. If her grades are solid I could give her academic money plus tennis money. qc tuition is 12000 plus 6000 for the dorms. I could possibly put together a very strong offer.

    Give me two more years of highschool and I would do anything to play for Queens. New York is my dream state for school.

    I am a 3.5-4.0 player and live in forest hills queens. Do you think that level can walk onto your mens team? I am assuming with the talk of junior ranking your team is about a 5.0-6 ntrp rating but just wanted to know do you take my level players to play doubles?

    I don't know about walking on but I've seen Queens play before and they have a very good team that I would guess is a minimum of 4.5 at the bottom of their lineup.
