    Who knows about Raymond Sarmiento? I just picked him up on the internet as a top college recruit for the upcoming year 2010.

    decent player,very flashy ,played USA Jr. Davis cup,part of the USTA elite player development group of kids.. he's a USTA kid and everything is all free for him to take advantage of...

    IMO.. I don't think he'll make it as a pro,he's too short and not a big hitter,moves well but tend to self-destruct in big matches..he surprised me though,with a big win over Kudla in the Easter bowl.. watched him at Kalamazoo last year,he was holding serve all the way and when pressure situations comes around,he'll do silly things like trying to hit a perfect dropshot or something in that nature..

    solid player,great doubles player at the Jr. level but not enough fire power for pro tennis..

    What qualifies a person to receive money from the USTA?

    these kids got sent to Spain for like 3 months and everything all paid for... I think it's so unfair the way USTA does things... well that what happens when you're like the outside looking in..

    I'm not a Jr. tennis player,I 'm in So. Cal.

    I don't know about all these kids who goes to the USTA training center in Florida,they get free schooling and do tennis all day.. how do they pass the grades to go to major universities ? Evan King wrote some items for USTA and he seems well educated ,but the others, that I've seen aren't quite as(how do you say)academically enriched ..I know one kid came back from the USTA program and went back to normal high school and he was academically ineligible to play high school tennis for a term..

    Raymond Sarmiento-- in the clay nats.. good test next round.. let's see if all the USTA money was worth it.. G.Brasseux is a solid player,they're about the same age...

    I wonder why he entered this tournament . All the other kids that play ITFS are not in the Clay Courts. Is he playing it as a test?

    brasseaux is a great player....played him in dubs at easter bowl and got dominated.....hits good pace and a ton of spin and moves well.....raymond and him should have a good, close match
