Any kid on the West Coast with a reasonable ranking should be able to get into either one of those. And unless he goes really deep, he can conceivably finish the tourney Sunday and make it back to school the next day. This I believe was a stated goal of the USTA - which I support, assuming the weather cooperates of course!
BTW, CA Bowl officially canceled - and no mention of refund.
I am definitely spoiled at this point. Vegas is 6 hours for me with no traffic, LOL, more like 8. Tucson is 10. Entry will not be a problem until after July, and then entry is less of a problem then ability to win matches.
Looking at the California Bowl you had to have a b16s ranking above 509 to get in. My guess is it will take above 200 for L3ís next year. What is your guess?
