Dont You Think This Is Taking This A Bit Too Far?
 
Few days ago I watched a mini orange match while I was hitting with a friend of mine. The first junior who had one aluminium babolat racket, was waiting for his opponent. As the opponent showed up he was had a:
- FIVETEEN pack Federer Wilson bag With his name sewn on
- SEVEN Wilson Blades (26inch)
- MiCoach Barricades 7's With the Speed_Cell
- Nadal Us Open Crew 2012
- Two Reels Some sort of Lux Strings
-Resistance Bands

So everyone was intrigued by the sight of this boy and his dad was
calling him the 'Futurestar'. His boy who was waiting for this 'little pro' was pretty much wetting himself. They began to warm up in the boxes and 'little pros dad' was glancing at his son. They began the match and little pro was bopping, jumping like bartoli as he was about to serve. He double faulted 4 times in the first game and had a beginner like lollipop serve. I stopped watching until the last moment of the match. I found out that the score was 4-0 3-0 to little pros opponent in just under a half hour. I also saw little pro was a newbie that had o been playing for 1 year. He was choking up the grip on his FH and couldnt even keep the ball in. He also had no BH whatsoever. Anyway, little pro got double bageled and his dad was such a saw loser after and that his son had a flu (he seem pretty fine)

What was so odd is that Junior parents kit their kids in the latest stuff and want their kids to be pro-like. It was like seeing Jan Silva without any talent at all (Little pro even got a massage and a warm down after losing) What to any people think about this?

DB parents creating DB kids..get used to it. It's a direct result of the Dragon shirt guy/overtanned minidress girl relationships of the late 90s/early 2000s.

Ha, was he also sporting a headband instead of a cap? Another clear sign. There will always be those displaying so much on the outside to cover inadequacies on the inside. His 16th bday present will be a bmw535. Nice car.

All form, no substance....at least he went down in "style" ;-)

This is wrong on so many levels. They are ruining the kid. Spend as little as possible. My kids played with holes in their shoes and hand me down racquets. Most of their lessons were with Joe the Wall. He fit my price range.

My dad made me use a wooden racquet in the 1990s until finaly getting me a prince 100 when I made a usta team..lol. Of course he used a t2000 in the same era and then finally switched to a wilson hammer.

We could use a picture here :)

^^^ No pictures of juniors please without their parents' permission.

some parents feel that Racket and clothing is what makes a player. Hours and hours of training and gym are just extra

ending up having "every top" college wanting to recruit your player when your and uneducated "no high school diploma",never played the sport of tennis, learned from video to teach his kid and still having a good 2 years to go before a decision if he wanted that route , My question to you what have you done that comes close?

I could be wrong but I read DB parent and DB kid as meaning D Bag and not the other DB we are used to.

You need to be extra careful in this subforum full of very sensitive people. Now I expect BB start deleting his posts and sending goodbyes.
