So I do not see it as normal that our US kids have to compete with the whole world for the right to play tennis in US college. Tennis after all is just an EC. And I do not see it as normal that parents have to yank their kids from the regular school and make them train twice a day so that they could play tennis in college. And this is where things are going. You can have couple of conferences that will be breeding grounds for future pros and they can benefit from the top foreign competition but the rest of college tennis should be for regular kids who value education and not looking to become tennis pros.
Ha ha.

Klu, talk to Ross Greenstein, not me. Those are his words. Brought to us by our fellow poster tennisconsultcom. Maybe you can talk to tennisconsultcom too

What do I do for a living? I'm unemployed. Got laid off from my job putting those little stickers on apples and pears. Great gig while it lasted!

But thanks for the info
