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.
Have you been in a hospital lately? Not too many US born doctors anymore. Foreigners might not be traveling to the US to interview for entry level sales jobs that pay no relocation, but they certainly are for expert skill jobs and high level executive positions. Head hunters, like coaches, will find the best people in the world for those roles.
