This is fantastic news. If college went to 10pt thirds, many USTA tourneys would eventually follow - and that would have been a disaster exponentially more destructive than those who think current USTA changes are bad.

I think we're seeing a shift to more and more juniors considering college a viable stepping stone to pros. Gibbs, Klahn, Kosakowski, Burdette, Johnson are showing this. But the 10 pt tiebreak would have killed this momentum/trend.

And this great for the college game as well and also for those juniors - most of whom won't make pro either path..so by going to college, at least they have a start on an education.

Hats off the many student-athletes who really banded together and sent such a loud and clear and immediate message to the NCAA. And also to the NCAA for actually listening.
