And different coaches for different styles of players, as well as different personalities. Anyone in the business should know. There can be no cookie cutter approach. While there are plenty of wrong ways, there is no one 'right way'. The we-must-all-do-it the-way-they-do-it-in Europe-dogma has failure written allover it. The top American prospects in womens and mens, Stephens and Sock, have both politely kept their distance from the USTA, and have worked with coaches that treated them as individuals.
