Don't know about Vania King - whether she is second generation or not.

It is about talent. Agassi had amazing hand-eye coordination. Sharapova is 8 feet tall. Would have been a different story if she was 5' 5" - all the immigrant -motivated drills would have gotten her some college scholarship, that is all.

Yes they are at the TOP but not for the US! That is the point I think folks are making. Some of the Top ranked WORLD Juniors are from the "USA" but compete for various countries.
