Maybe this is your experience. It is not mine.

At all the college tennis matches I have attended, family, friends, and just plain ol' fans are rooting for the individual or the team.

I have never been to [any] college athletic event where people are rooting for "USA".

If I were a player or a coach on a college team in any sport, with one or more international players, and a fan........never mind a family member.....was rooting for USA, I would consider that an insult to the team and boorish behavior. I'd feel embarrassed for any player on the team whose parents were doing something like this
