These are bad arguments. There are tons and tons of young kids in the USA who play basketball and football. By far the top nation in each sport. The USA is probably the 3rd biggest tennis nation right now(behind Spain and France) but there are tons of other countries who are not far behind.
I actually feel good that so many non-Americans want to come here. They know and understand how good our college system is. I have some personal interaction with the Clemson team and the Madens often talk about how good the US college tennis system is. Meza and Wibowo aren't going back to their countries after college they will stay in the USA to work.
