Tennis scholarships for non-americans is a great opportunity for many. It is not so great an opportunity for americans. The system has been abused by college coaches and I blame them and the NCAA. Its no wonder that college tennis programs are being cut back or cut out altogether. It's not about the competetion-its all about winning at any price.
