If their footwork is terrible and they're mentally unstable (which is often the case for 14 year olds), then they cant compete at that level. That's IF they have the same technique. 4.5 is damn good, and you would be one hell of a tennis player if your playing that level at such a young age!
Where do you live, like Arkansas cause obviously you've never seen a good Florida junior. Everything you're saying about strong juniors from real tennis states is wrong.
