With the game becoming so physical and guys doing better later in life, it's better to get your degree and compete straight after.
I guarantee Kosakowski will struggle in the lower levels until he can't afford to tour anymore (since it costs $140K on average to tour). He could go back to school later in life, but of course it won't be paid for.
Kind of a sad story.
The sad story here is your post. The kid has been pro a little over a year. Just because a kid leaves college to go pro does not imply his plan is to be in the Top 100 in a year. Do you know his plan and goals? Looks like he's making progress to me. http://www.itftennis.com/ProCircuit/...erID=100122323
Keep working hard everyday and looking for ways to improve Daniel.
