Exactly....several of us said the same thing 3 years ago. Simply that Jan hit very well....but so do lots of tennis kids. And some have quicker feet than Jan does. You just never see posted videos or news stories on the vast majority of them and they remain totally anonymous.

Honestly...if one dad seeks out press coverage and others do not, does that mean the kid on TV is the most talented??

But somehow tennis dads translate that to mean you are a hater who hopes their kid fails. Not sure how they get to that conclusion....but I have learned never to try and reason with a rabid tennis dad!
