    dude come one. Southwest is pretty bad. Top 25 for adidas sponsorship??? We have a couple good 12 year olds and a decent fourteens. Sixteens is pretty competetive but is somewhat of a joke nationally. Same with Eighteens except for a couple players

    Let's not say "pretty bad". It's a matter of numbers. Those sections that have more depth are that way because they have more players. The southwest is one of the smaller sections. Fewer players = less depth. Fewer really good quality coaches, because they tend to be where the population is higher (notable exceptions, of course...I'm speaking generally).

    We have some really good players. We have less players overall, so there's a lack of depth. SoCal probably has 10 times more players, thus they have somewhere around 10 times the depth.

    exactly. Southern Section was so intense. They had about 150+ people per state and there were 9 states. Tennis is really big down there. It was hard just to get inside top 50 in the stae. There arent even state rankings here.

    It's 3 raquets, a bag, reel of Synthetic Gut, hat, and a couple t-shirts, wristbands and socks for $380.

    I just turned 13 so my Florida sectional ranking is only like 95, but my sectional ranking in 12's was 50 and I was ranked in the 400's nationally.

    you can just sign up there, for HEAD team elite, the form is old but they still accept them,, just put your current ranking, or simply wait for them to contact you and leave the ranking spot blank. I got a full but i waited to long so they switched me to a good partial

    no it wasnt at a big tourney- i think it was because i was with Timothy Neilly(orange bowl winner vs. donald young) and i was checking out Tarik Benhabillis' academy.

    Why do you need a sponsor so badly? I know that you are a junior and you want to go pro, but your rankings aren't great right now, so why don't you improve them and have the sponsors asking you if you want them?

    EDIT: I'm not trying to be mean!!!

    Is 200 in the nation for Prince a full sponsorship or a partial? What rank do you have to be to get a partial deal with Prince?
