As the parent of a college player I can tell you that they don't always want to travel to the fall tournaments. You think the Harvard guys wanted to fly to Napa for the weekend and miss class?
Guess were on the same page had my player there for to reasons work on his serve motion "little tweak" and practice hits . So overall we accomplished what we were after ,in other words my player was not giving it his all , thats to bad those D1 guys had a 16 yr old half-hearted into his matches, with his low standard and their low standard must have been some ugly tennis?
