All of us are not at that level of play, so who are we to say that he made the wrong choice.
Of course I personally think staying in school would of been the best choice, but I'm not living DK's life, and don't know the true reasons why he turned pro.
My daughter is friends with his sister, I've meet DK and family on several occasions, they are a solid good family. Tight Polish family.
I'm guessing that it was a family decision.
4 kids...4 D1 tennis players. Some good genes there.
I do think he made a mistake, but who am I to judge another man when I haven't walked in his shoes. I just would have thought having 9 losses in a college season would have made him see that he still needed to work on things before abandoning the free education.
