I haven't been following Princeton all that closely although I know a graduating senior who was on the team. I have to think that all the Ivy league schools have the same obstacle to overcome, burnout. A freshman comes in full of energy and enthusiasm. Then the combination of class work, on and off court training and squeezing in a social life grinds down that energy and enthusiasm so that by the 4th year the player is more concerned about his school work or potential career then his results on court. I would think it would be tough for a coach when the upper class men are less interested in tennis then the freshmen.
