So, why do I not oppose offering scholarships to foreign recruits? Because I think it strengthens college tennis, because I think that our kids need to learn to compete?
What is the role of American college tennis?

Is it to "compete" among all college age tennis players in the world, or
is it the responsibility of college tennis to prepare them for the professional game?

Neither, starting with kindergarten, school athletics is to help build strong bodies, so that we have strong minds.

ClarkC, that was one of your greatest post!
