Yea, parents and tennis coaches are blatantly encouraging and teaching poor sportsmanship. It's so clear I can't believe the USTA is allowing it.
All parents who see their kids make even one close call and who hear or see their kids act out in anyway should pull them off the court in every instance. I can see the lines of a players court from the sideline much better than the players can from the actual court they are playing on. All kids except mine act out and make bad calls. It's just awful out there on the junior tennis circuit. I'm thinking about going to an activity like painting or water ballet.
