    Is it the end of the year for most of these kids? Not a lot of new tournaments on display. I know that The American Cup is coming up in Miami - are any of the top Florida kids playing at that event.

    The America Cup used to be the Prince Cup for years and was an ITF tournament that gave ITF and USTA points, I believe Grade 4 at the time, but not positive. Anyway, the tournament was taken off the ITF/USTA schedule (before this year's cuts - maybe a year or two ago) and changed to the America Cup, so no points, and word on the street was it was very poorly managed the first year. So basically it's a "private tournament" or club tournament, whatever you want to call it. It tends to be the foreign players that are here anyway for EH and/or OB and they just stay and play that. Not high level tourny anymore, and not a big draw for American juniors who are getting ready for Winter Nats, or other ITFs in Mexico etc.

    The America Cup is still on the USTA National schedule for this year anyway - still classified as a level 3 USTA event according to USTA Jr competition.
