But if you have the $ and want to do it, why not?
To get this a player (especially) a boy should be very competitive like 5 stars, top 200 ITF level, at least. And think if tennis 20+ hours a week in college will help him/her to be a good student.
Too many "coaches" with BA in Economics, Political Science, etc. work as coaches because they were not able to get a good job after college. Actually, this is one of a reason of bad situation in American tennis. Coaches have to coach not "economists".
