    With most tournaments today the responsibility to check match times on the internet is the players. That said if a tournament is even worth its entry fee, if they change a match time that late and make it earlier they usually contact each player by phone. Of course if they don't get in touch with the player and leave a message who knows what could happen at the new match time. Players could show up late, etc.

    I do agree that updating the website at 12:35 AM could be in bad form. Of course their could be extinuating circumstances, like a late match, computer website, illness or internet access issues and so on. I hope they are not change match times on you..........

    its incredible the way tournament directors do that crap. In texas it happens more often then it should, TDs have no respect at all for the players. The quality of people running tennis here in the states seems to be declining every 10 years IMO

    the tournament directors all are about making money ,you should see some of the trophies they give out now.. at the National Dunlop and same director as Quiksilver/Roxy ,these tournaments have sponsors and they gave a B/S novelty 6inch gumball machine and hot wheel car with a surfboard on it .. I guess it's ok because all trophies end up in the trash anyways on the long run..

    no .. he's not that good to win the 18s.. I don't even think he could win the 16s.. 18s ,the winner should be the 2nd seed...SB

    I think you saw they are on the same side of the draw----------although he outpowers /outsizes most of the field as he get closer to the finals the experiance vs talent will be a questioned that will be answered.

    I'm working on him and hoping he will be ready for this weekend -----------his first 3 rounds were pretty easy but he faces his first tough seed in 2 more rounds,,,,,,,,,will see.

    Although I'm working for the family right now I think he has a shot but why would you think he could win it?

    Is this a weak tournament ? I was told it was a tough field.

    I have a friend of mine in the G16's. . .who's more like a baby sister as our families are close. Her name is Jasmine and she's seeded 17. . .along with a bunch of other girls. LOL. Hoping our training has paid off so she can do well. :)

    However, now it should get interesting. Seth Stolar will either beat Deiton or give him a very tough match. Either way, if somehow he gets by Stolar (which I doubt), he loses in the next round.[/QUOTE]

    Deit may get by Seth and then maybe get by Shuhei S. but the roll should stop there...he's going have to play his very best to get by Reo or Warren Wood.. he might get lucky if W.W. beats Reo..

    Stolar is a good 16s player but would not be a contender to win the 16s draw in this tournament. It looks like he is playing up to 18s to test the waters. According to the threads Deiton should have an easy time winning this match.

    I agree with you, he may win but I doubt it.

    I do not think any 14 year old can win the 18's in So Cal personally --------- this is my opinion ! I work with him but the rest of the field is to big, to talented and can out play any 14 year old , for this young guy to win he would have to be one great player ................ so lets see what happens-----------

    The only meeting I could find was in 2007. It is interesting to note that Deiton was ranked higher than Shuhei in boys16 SoCal in 2007. Deiton was 84 and Shuhei was 104.

    What's your child's level? Is Deiton your kid?

    What does this kind of question have to do with anything? Does it establish your superiority over the group?

    What's your real function here?

    reading all this talk about Deit,is fine and dandy but I got to say.. the pressures of playing and winning in your own age division when you are expected to win is a totally different factor.. yes it's sure nice to win go out and beat older kids and show your complete skills ,but one has to remember,those older kids have alot more to lose and alot more pressures to overcome . .. those younger kids playing ,I feel are just running away from the other aspect of the game and that being able to win when you are expected to do so.. a lot of strange things happen when you throw a different set of pressures into the mix.. I sure Deit will see it soon enough ,when a new young gun comes out hunting older game..that's why I have always said.'I don't think he can even win the S16B '.. there's a ton of talented kids still playing in their own division .. prove to me you can win your division first then you're ready to move on..

    100% correct. We have that battle with parents all the time....be careful playing up because sometimes the results can be misleading. The older kids feel intense pressure to beat younger kids. The young bucks many times steal wins over better players.

    If a kid is simply dominating his own age group, great, that kid needs stiffer competition.

    To me the mental toughness of obtaining AND defending a top ranking in the 14s, 16s when everyone is gunning for you shows much more than picking and choosing when to play up and which 10s results to cherish and which ones to ignore.

    Very true. I am talking strictly about the 14s-18s and about the age old game of 'playing up' to avoid the pressures of playing the top kids in one's own age group.

    How old is Pura? He's a player. I see that he's in the 18s too. As I recall he's pretty young too...15 maybe?

    Indeed it was. And predictably, he did lose to Shuhei. Still a good run!

    His dad Tom made the documentary 50000 Balls, very cool thing. Sadly, his father passed away in 2008.

    Yes. I saw him win the Gator Bowl a few years back. His Dad was there to see him win it and it was great to see the Father-Son relationship. Great tennis dad that raised a great kid, very well grounded.
