Look at the article: http://wp.me/p2iyrR-bY
100 matches an year for 10-12 year old? You cannot be serious.
If you play 24 tournaments a year (average of 2 per month), 100 matches could happen to a great player in the 10s and 12s.
There are many 10-12 kids that take 200+ privates a year. That's a crazy number to me.
